Nose surgery helps improve the appearance of the nose and the overall facial contour. This article discusses aspects to consider before and after nose reshaping surgery.
Considering a nose job or rhinoplasty? If yes, then you need to take into consideration what you can expect before as well as after the nose surgery. Two approaches are used in the procedure. Open rhinoplasty is the first approach. In this approach, the incision is made in the fleshy part between the nostrils. Usually this technique is used for more extensive surgery because it allows more space for the surgeon to perform the surgery. This is used for conditions such as correction of nose defects, correction of complicated nose deformity and trauma. Closed rhinoplasty is the second technique. As per the name, no incisions are generated on the nose. Many surgeons recommend closed rhinoplasty as no scars are left behind and it is not at all painful.
Before the Nose Surgery
While opting for the procedure of rhinoplasty, you must make sure that the instructions provided by the surgeon are followed. However, you must address these matters a few weeks before the operation is scheduled. If you are a smoker, the surgeon would ask to quit the habit well in advance. This is because smoking has negative effects and the process of healing will be compromised to a great extent. Even consumption of alcohol, a week prior to the procedure should be stopped owing to the same reasons. Furthermore, one must also ask the surgeons about the medications that are being taken. This is because the risk of bleeding will be increased due to some drugs. However, medications should not be stopped without consulting the doctor. All medical supplies should be bought well in advance. Someone must be arranged to drive you home from the hospital.
