- You are unhappy with the shape of your nose
- Your nose is the first thing you notice when looking in the mirror
- Your nose is crooked
- You are experiencing breathing difficulties
- Your nose has a bump
- Your nose was broken
- You are unhappy with the size of your nostrils
- You want to improve the balance of your facial features
- You want to appear more attractive
- You avoid taking photos in certain angles
What Type of Surgeon Performs a Rhinoplasty?
A facial plastic surgeon will have the most experience with rhinoplasty procedures. No two noses are the same, and no two rhinoplasty surgeries are the same either. Rhinoplasty surgery is an incredibly complex procedure, therefore; Novomed Center’s has only the most experienced and reputable facial plastic surgeons, with decades of experience in performing rhinoplasty surgeries.
Recovery after Rhinoplasty
First and foremost, always follow your surgeon’s instructions. You may be excited to see your rhinoplasty results right away, but the recovery process does take time. Downtime can be anywhere between 5 to 7 days, with the splint being removed on the 7th day. Keep in mind, recovery time varies from patient to patient, depending on the extent of the procedure. Every person heals differently, but typically any swelling or bruising may take up to two weeks to resolve.
Around 3 to 4 weeks patients can safely return to cardiovascular activities, such as swimming, jogging, and cycling. However, resistance workouts such as weightlifting, should not be resumed until about 6 weeks post-operation, as for the bones of the nose only become stable around this time.
Numbness and abnormal sensations after undergoing rhinoplasty are normal but will resolve between 3-6 months after the surgery. The final result of the surgery will be visible after about 12 months when swelling has subsided completely, and the new shape of the nose is fully refined.
