Rhinoplasty FAQ

What is rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is a form of cosmetic surgery that’s used to reshape the nose. It can be used to alter the nose in several ways, including reshaping the tip of the nose, widening or narrowing the bridge of the nose and altering the size and shape of the nostrils.

Who can benefit from rhinoplasty?

If the appearance of your nose causes you to feel self-conscious, either because you feel it’s too long, too wide or too thin, then you can benefit from rhinoplasty. Having rhinoplasty surgery could massively improve your self-confidence and drastically improve your physical appearance. Rhinoplasty is also used to help correct injuries or deformities that result in breathing problems.

What are the different types of rhinoplasty?
There are two types of rhinoplasty surgery:

  • Open Rhinoplasty
  • Open rhinoplasty involves making an incision between the nostrils and peeling back the soft tissue and skin. Open rhinoplasty is only used to majorly reshape and restructure the nose.

  • Closed Rhinoplasty
  • A closed rhinoplasty involves making minor incisions within the nostrils. Similarly to open rhinoplasty, the skin and soft tissue is then separated from the cartilage and bone. The nose is then reshaped.

Am I a good candidate?

A good candidate for rhinoplasty will be a person who has the right skin type and who has realistic expectations about what can be achieved with the surgery. Your surgeon will be able to determine if you’re a suitable candidate and also let you know what results you can expect to achieve.

In order to be a good candidate for a rhinoplasty procedure, it’s important to be in good health overall. Any ongoing medical conditions will need to be discussed with your surgeon who will give you advice on whether a rhinoplasty is the best procedure for you. It’s also best to make a decision on whether the surgery is right for you when you aren’t feeling stressed or worried about other things.

How do I choose the right surgeon?

When looking for a surgeon to perform rhinoplasty you first want to be sure that they’re board-certified. This will guarantee a high standard of skill and care. Secondly you should look for a surgeon who has a great deal of experience performing rhinoplasty surgeries, and ideally who specializes in it.
Read through any testimonials featured on their website and have a detailed look and the before and after photos of past surgeries they have completed. If you find a surgeon that you feel would be able to give you the results you want, book a consultation. If you like the surgeon and feel comfortable in their hands, they’re probably the surgeon for you.

How can I prepare for rhinoplasty surgery?

Before your scheduled rhinoplasty surgery takes place, your chosen surgeon with walk you through the process of the procedure and what you should expect from your end results. Make sure that you are completely comfortable with the procedure and happy with the results you will receive.

Once you’re ready to go ahead, try to avoid taking any medications that could cause blood clotting or postoperative bleeding. Furthermore, if you’re a smoker, it’s advised that you cut down or try to quit before surgery. Smoking greatly increases the amount of time it takes the body to heal, therefore recovery could take longer than anticipated.

Alcohol should also be avoided in the days running up to your surgery as it can interfere with some medications and thin the blood making excessive bleeding more likely.

What is the recovery like?

Immediately after surgery, the nostrils will be packed and you will be in some discomfort. It’s normal to have bruising around the eye sockets and the nose will be tender and swollen. You’ll need to wear a cast on your nose for the first week after surgery. This will then be removed, the swelling and bruising will slowly subside over the following weeks. Usually after 2-3 weeks, the swelling will have subsided enough where people will not be able to tell you’ve had surgery. Some pain is to be expected in the days immediately following surgery although medication will be prescribed for this.

It takes approximately 3-4 months for the swelling to completely subside when you have rhinoplasty surgery. After this time you’ll be able to appreciate the final results.

Will I need to take time off work?

Yes. It’s usually recommended that you take a couple of weeks off work so you’re able to recover properly and don’t have to worry about your nose being accidentally bumped or knocked, which could cause complications.

How will my nose look ten years after surgery?

Just like most other aesthetic surgeries, the results of a rhinoplasty are permanent. Although there could be minor changes to your nose as you go through the aging process, your nose will never return to how it was before rhinoplasty surgery.

Are there any permanent alternatives to having a rhinoplasty?

In some circumstances, fillers can be used to change the shape and appearance of the nose, however, this is a temporary fix. A rhinoplasty is the only option for results that will last a lifetime.

Rhinoplasty Recovery & Downtime

If you choose to get rhinoplasty then it’s important to know what the recovery will be like and how much downtime will be required in order to properly recover.

Rhinoplasty is different for everyone and the type of surgery you get will determine what your recovery is like. That being said, there are certain common side effects that most patients deal with.

Common side effects during the first few days

A very common side effect that occurs immediately after surgery is a dull aching in the head and around the nose. This side effect is only temporary and usually goes very quickly. It’s uncommon for patients to experience severe pain following rhinoplasty. Pain medication is recommended for the first few days after surgery to help deal with any pain, after which time it’s usually OK to switch to mild, over-the-counter pain medication.

Another common side effect of rhinoplasty is congestion. This is caused by internal swelling in the nose. It’s worth noting that congestion is usually at its worst in the days immediately following surgery and will continue to improve as the weeks go by.

Once you’ve come round and are starting to feel more awake, try to have a small amount of water, a few sips at a time, but don’t eat or drink too much or too quickly as it could cause nausea and sickness.

The first week after surgery

During the first week after surgery, it’s important to get plenty of rest and avoid any heavy lifting. You will need around a week off work in order to give yourself the time needed to recover.

  • Painkillers
  • Painkillers can be taken to ease any pain or discomfort but should only be taken when necessary. They aren’t a mandatory part of the healing process but most people prefer to use them.

  • Sleeping
  • When sleeping for the first few days, try to keep the head slightly elevated. One of the best ways to do this is by sleeping with two or three pillows. Also avoid sleeping on your side or front because it can offset the bones that have been reshaped.

  • Bruising
  • Bruising is common in people that are recovering from a rhinoplasty procedure, although some people show no signs of bruising at all. Bruising tends to clear up on its own and is usually completely gone after 10 days. Around the eyes and across the nose are the most common areas of bruising after surgery.

  • Sickness
  • Nausea and vomiting isn’t something that affects everybody after surgery however, it can affect a few rhinoplasty patients. It’s usually nothing to worry about but it’s best to inform your surgeon if you begin vomiting during your recovery.

  • Washing and bathing
  • The splint that protects the bridge of the nose after surgery needs to be avoided and kept dry for a minimum of a week after the surgery to enable the nose to heal correctly. If the splint is disturbed, it can cause the bridge of the nose to widen.

  • Splint removal
  • Once the splint is removed, the nose can appear to be more slender as the shape of the nose is influenced by the splint. The nose is likely to swell a little after the removal of the splint, however, as the swelling reduces, the final result become more noticeable.

One month after surgery

One month after surgery, the final results of the rhinoplasty will start to appear, although, it won’t be until the swelling has completely gone down that the full results will be visible. You will have been able to return to work and life should be getting back to normal. There are still a few things that you will have to be cautious about.

  • Cleaning the nose
  • Avoid picking or blowing the nose to prevent trauma inside the nose. Use saline solution to clean the nose during the first month of recovery.

  • Glasses
  • After a rhinoplasty, it’s better to wear contact lenses instead of glasses because glasses cause pressure on the bridge of the nose. Sunglasses should also not be worn.

  • Breathing through the nose
  • Airways can be restricted straight after a rhinoplasty procedure due to swelling so it can prove more difficult to breathe through the nose. This improves after a few weeks and breathing through the nose becomes easier and less restricted.

How long until final results are seen?

Because of the swelling, you won’t be able to appreciate the results of your surgery for the first few weeks. Around 3 weeks after your surgery, the swelling should have reduced considerably and at around 6-8 weeks you should be able to start noticing the finer details of your surgery as the swelling subsides even more.

Recovery advice

It’s recommended that you take a couple of weeks off work after your surgery, at least until any splints and bandages are removed. It’s important that you follow all the recovery advice that your doctor gives you if you want the healing process to be as speedy as possible.

When recovering from rhinoplasty it’s important to be aware that for the first few weeks after surgery it’s to be expected that your nose will not feel like your own. Common facial expressions such as smiling and frowning might feel strange, as well bumping or touching your nose. This is all part of the healing process however and is completely normal.

Facelift Recovery – What to Expect

Facelift Recovery – What to Expect

If your face is beginning to show signs of aging and you’re feeling much less confident in your appearance, a facelift could provide you with a more youthful look and give you back the confidence you’ve lost.
However, before committing to having a facelift procedure, it’s important to consider recovery and gain an idea on how to properly recover. We’ve put together a facelift recovery guide to give you an insight into what to expect.

What is a facelift?

A facelift is a plastic surgery procedure that focuses on tightening and smoothing out sagging skin on the face and jaw. The aim of the procedure is to provide the patient with a more youthful appearance.
During the facelift procedure, incisions are made in different areas of the face, excess soft tissue is removed and the remaining skin is tightened.

Immediately after facelift surgery

Once the procedure has been completed, your surgeon may apply a large bandage around your face to reduce swelling and you might have a drainage tube inserted through an incision behind the ear. The drainage tube removes excess fluid and prevents blood from collecting underneath the skin.

In the hours after having a facelift, you will have some pain and discomfort and some swelling and bruising around the incision sites. Pain relief will be administered by your surgeon in order to keep discomfort to a minimum and the pain will decrease over the next few days.
Try to keep the head elevated and still in the days after surgery as this will help to minimize swelling and will prevent any stiches being pulled out.

During the first week of recovery

The first day after surgery is the day you are likely to feel the most pain and discomfort. This is because the body will have started its healing process and the skin on your face will feel tender.
As well as pain killers being provided for the first few days of your recovery, your surgeon could also prescribe a dose of antibiotics to drastically reduce your chance of getting an infection.
Your surgeon will come and visit you around 24 hours post-surgery to check on you and make sure everything has gone well with the procedure. They will also supply you with a recovery plan that’s tailored specifically to your needs. This will outline what to avoid during recovery, how to ensure you heal correctly and any problems to look out for.

All heavy lifting and strenuous movement should be avoided and you should try to get plenty of rest. Sleeping improves healing so being well rested will decrease your recovery time.
Usually, stitches are removed between five and seven days after surgery and the results of your facelift will start to become visible.

Two weeks post-surgery

Although the procedure only consists of a small amount of incisions, adequate healing time is still needed in order to allow your body to heal properly. This is because, during the recovery period, you may experience swelling, tightness of the skin, numbness and bruising in the first two weeks post-surgery.
For a minimum of two weeks after having the procedure carried out, any dressings that have been applied to the incision sites should be kept dry and showering should be avoided unless approved by your surgeon.

Pain and discomfort should have subsided and swelling should have diminished completely.
In most cases, patients that have undergone a full facelift procedure can return to work and continue with daily life within two weeks. Some slight bruising may still be visible, however, the results of your surgery will clearly be visible.
