Facts To Know About Nose Reduction Surgery
Are you displeased with the appearance of your nose? Are you tired of all the years of being teased and taunted about the size of your nose being too big? Choosing to do nose reduction surgery is a brave, but scary decision. What if something goes wrong? What if I don’t look like myself afterwards? Those are legitimate questions and should be brought up to the plastic surgeon that is performing your surgery. Depending on how bad your nose is to begin with all depends on the extent of your nose surgery. Your doctor will discuss all of the pros and cons of nose surgery and what you can expect before, during and after in the recovery process.
Rhinoplasty is the surgical alteration of the nose to reshape its original look. The reasons for this surgery could be for many reasons. Perhaps you have been in an accident and broken your nose somehow. Rhinoplasty is able to get your nose back to looking like it did before your accident. With the help of pictures brought into your plastic surgeons office, they will be able to reshape your nose to as close to it was prior to your accident. You may have a deviated septum which causes you breathing difficulties and trouble sleeping (snoring and not feeling totally rested). Rhinoplasty can help aid in those situations as well. The main reason for nose surgery, however, is for appearance sake. Many people just aren’t pleased with the look and shape of their nose.
There are risks (only minor ones) that can accompany nose reduction surgery. Following your plastic surgeons explicit instructions before and after the procedure will make sure that the risks and side effects are minimal. It is possible to have an adverse reaction to the anesthesia since you are under a general anesthetic. An anesthesiologist is always close by in the operating room to closely monitor you during the surgery. You also carry the risk of infection and nose bleeds. When your surgery is completed, you may notice small broken blood vessels on your nose. Many times these will clear up and go away on their own; however, some may stay permanently. They are minor, however and should not be very noticeable. Scarring does not generally occur in a Rhinoplasty procedure, unless the surgery is to narrow flared nostrils. If that is the case, two small incisions will be made on either side, causing small scars.
