Rhinoplasty or a Nose Job can Make a Huge Difference to a person’s facial appearance
Cosmetic surgery as they are generally referred to is becoming commonplace. It’s no more only the movie stars who need to fix their nose. As medical procedures become less expensive and more affordable, more and more people are opting for surgeries to enhance their looks, if only to make them feel better about themselves.
RhinoPlasty: Things you need to know
A crooked nose or a bridge that runs like the Murray or a tip that is flat can be put back in place. In rare cases, difficulties in breathing may be resolved with rhinoplasty.
However a blotched surgery can lead to a damaged face other than complications of medical kind.
Hence, it is imperative that you first choose a surgeon or service you can trust to give you a good service.
Plastic surgery is usually divided into two categories – cosmetic and reconstructive
Rhinoplasty refers to cosmetic surgery performed on the nose. Reconstructive surgery is for abnormalities caused by congenital defects and infections or diseases.
Rhinoplasty is performed with the intent of reshaping the underlying nasal bone and cartilages as well as correcting any congenital or post-traumatic abnormalities.
Your GP may refer you to a plastic surgeon; however whether or not that person will meet your need is something you need to check on.
Beware of the possible risks associated with such surgeries that attempt to alter the normal shape and structure of a human body.
In general, there could be anesthetic complications, infections, abnormal scarring, bleeding, and wound breakdown among others.
Some patients may not be satisfied with the results or the results may not be as promised. In such cases, patients often ask for a repeat procedure. At times, breathing difficulties may arise too. Other individual complications may arise, that may be symptomatic like healing problems, wound breakdown, visible external scars, septal perforation and others.
Side effects may result from such surgery. Most common side effects could be swelling and bruising of the nose. Pain can be eased with pain killers available over-the-counter or with prescription from the doctor. If you are bleeding, know that it could be a result of the procedure. Report to the doctor if it is abnormally occurring. If you are feeling stiff and sore, it will subside after some days as the nose heals.
Patients may be given general anesthesia. But local anesthesia may also be administered though many patients prefer general anesthesia.
These days, there are a good many number of people opting for cosmetic procedures. But to get the desired results, one has to carefully select the surgeon. Look for references, experience and reputation. Your face is one of the most valuable assets you own. Trust it with someone who can take care of it.
These procedures are not performed on a child.
Before you even proceed with selecting a doctor, be convinced that you are doing so to satisfy a personal need and not to gain approval from others or due to societal pressures.
