Rhinoplasty Stages of Recovery
December 28, 2016
A rhinoplasty procedure is often known as a “nose job” and is a fairly complex surgery. They can be performed for cosmetic and functional purposes to reconstruct the nasal passage. Some individuals who need a functional rhinoplasty procedure may also desire a cosmetic change at the same time. Rhinoplasty is a complex surgical procedure because changes made to the nose must match the individual’s facial features, ethnicity, and personality. It is very important to select an experienced physician that can work on noses of your personal ethnicity. There are many physicians that specialize in rhinoplasty of various ethnicities and provide before and after images of their work. The rhinoplasty procedure may involve changing the bridge of the nose, the tip, proportion of the nostrils, and removing dips or bumps in the nose. Each individual has a different anatomy which will impact the nasal surgery process. Due to this, the healing process will also be different for each individual. Some patients may experience a faster recovery process than others.
