Basic information on Rhinoplasty

One of the most commonly sought-after forms of plastic surgery is the rhinoplasty. This surgery is used in order to make the nose of a person fit more aesthetically with the rest of their face. Since the nose is the center-point of the face, altering it can drastically alter the appearance for the better when performed correctly. In this article, we'll go over some basic information about rhinoplasty so that you can understand exactly what the procedure consists of.

Rhinoplasty can be performed to fix large imperfections with the nose or small problems that can detract from the beauty of the face. The procedure is one that requires much precision on the part of the physician, and a result is rarely guaranteed when undergoing the surgery. For that reason, it's important to choose a doctor that is well trained in rhinoplasty. To ensure that your doctor is an expert in rhinoplasty, be sure to enquire about some before-and-after pictures of rhinoplasty procedures that he or she has performed in the past. The best way to gauge a plastic surgeon's ability is to see the types of operations that they have performed on others, and it's your best bet when it comes to determining whether or not a physician has the skills necessary to meet your criteria. While different surgeons may charge different rates for a rhinoplasty procedure, it most often costs between four and six thousand dollars. It's a serious thing to commit to and you need to realize it before you get the operation performed.

When performing rhinoplasty surgery, physicians have a few choices to select from when it comes to suiting your needs. They can perform either 'open' rhinoplasties or 'closed' rhinoplasties. Closed rhinoplasties are the most commonly performed method, in which incisions are made on the inside of the nostrils to perform the surgery. In more advanced rhinoplasty procedures, an open rhinoplasty may be required. In an open rhinoplasty, surgeons work to make incisions at the base of the nose so that they can draw the skin away from the bone. This method of surgery may leave scarring at the base of the nose but it is usually quick to fade and eventually becomes unnoticeable.

The surgery itself is a rather quick one. It takes around two to three hours to complete a rhinoplasty procedure, and it may be done under general anesthesia or while you are awake yet sedated. After the surgery is completed, the patient is given a cast on their nose which they must wear for around 7 days. The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis and is therefore one that can be undertaken quite quickly. The full results of the surgery will not be apparent for months, however, as the bones and cartilage need time to settle and heal. You may feel nauseous, and many patients experience black eyes due to the sensitivity of the face. These quickly fade, however, and patients can get a pretty basic idea of how their new nose will look within a month.
