Rhinoplasty (Nose Job Surgery) Las Vegas
Rhinoplasty (Nose Job Surgery) Overview
Rhinoplasty or nose job as it is commonly called, is a procedure to reconstruct a nose following an accident, for enhancing your face’s overall appearance, for cosmetic purposes, or to correct irregularities in the structure of the nose. The procedure can bring about changes in the size, shape, profile, tip and width of the nose. Treatments are customized based on individual requirements. The cosmetic surgeon or the plastic surgeon will first have a good discussion with patients to understand their specific requirements. The surgeon will then evaluate the overall health of the patient and measure and photograph his/her face before discussing procedural details.
Dr. Brian J. Parker recommends patients to attain a thorough understanding of all aspects related to this plastic surgery, including potential risks and expectations. Anesthesia will also be discussed by the surgeon, and if a date is fixed for the cosmetic surgery in Las Vegas, you will be asked to stop smoking for a few weeks prior to the procedure. Drugs that lead to blood thinning must also be avoided.
What’s involved in rhinoplasty
Rhinoplasty can be performed using one of two techniques – open or closed. The location which will be incised is the difference between both techniques. The incision is made at the small partition between your nostrils when surgeons adopt the open technique. On the other hand, the closed technique means that an incision will be made inside your nose. Nose jobs are considered as one of the most intricate aesthetic surgical procedures as the surgeon must ensure that his patients nose is aesthetically pleasing. At the same time, the patient must also be able to breathe effortlessly.
Rhinoplasty has become a highly advanced procedure in recent years. It is based on reshaping the nasal support so that the patient can get the desired facial appearance. Rhinoplasty not only delivers natural results and enhances the overall appearance of a patient’s nose, but also improves the breathing function in patients.
What can you expect after the procedure
Initially, you may need splints to support the nose for a few days. Small tubes will also be required to drain the fluid. As soon as the surgery ends, patients can notice an improvement in breathing. Minimal swelling and soreness can be expected for a week or so. The swelling may remain on your nose for as long as six month. In case the open technique has been used, it will take five to six days to remove the sutures around the columella. In case of the closed technique, the sutures within the nose will dissolve in around seven days.
The surgeon will provide you with self-care instructions and also prescribe painkillers. The recovery period varies based on the surgeons work. You will have to visit the surgeon to follow up on the treatment post procedure. Rhinoplasty is an excellent option for those who are not too pleased with the shape or structure of their nose. A nose job will enhance your breathing as well as make you aesthetically more appealing.
