Rhinoplasty or a nose job is a nose surgery to change its shape and size or improve its functioning. In addition to its cosmetic benefits, Rhinoplasty has more known applications, such as to improve the functioning of the nose after an illness, injury or any breathing problems. Its main goal is to revise the nose to an individual’s desired aspect and functionality, keeping in mind the face structure and the skin type. Rhinoplasty should be carried out at a well known clinic.
Preparation: Food and medication should be taken care of before and after the surgery. Do not take medicines that contain aspirin as it may increase bleeding. Do not smoke or take any herbal remedies two weeks before the surgery.
Procedure: It takes about two to three hours to complete the surgery. It starts with inducing general or local anesthesia. General anesthesia makes the patient sleep during the operation while with the local anesthesia the patient will be sedated and their nose will get numb so that the patient is calm and does not feel the pain. During the surgery, the cuts are made within the nostrils. In severe cases, the cuts might be made across the base of the nose. Then the inner bone and cartilage is reshaped to produce an appearance that is more pleasing.
Effects: After the surgery, the patient has to stay in bed with the head raised higher than the chest, to reduce the bleeding. The nose may be swollen and congested. The internal dressing is placed in the nose for one week. For the next few days of the surgery or removing the dressing one might suffer from slight bleeding and mucus drainage. A drip pad might be placed under the nose that collects all the old blood drainage.
