Nowadays, patients are very concerned about the appearance of their bodies. While some people are more concerned about the abdomen, arms, buttocks, and breasts, in the case of women; the rest concentrate on the face and on that indispensable area that gives harmony to the middle part of the face: the nose.

The question of this publication is one of the most frequent questions asked by patients when they want to know the details of nose surgery.

How is a rhinoplasty done?

I must tell you, first of all, that rhinoplasty is a plastic surgery where I make an incision between both nostrils to approach the inside of the nose. The scar that remains is small and with time it will lighten until it goes unnoticed. On that side, you should not worry because the result of the nose surgery will be satisfactory and, best of all, natural.

With rhinoplasty, the nose will not have an exaggerated appearance, with a very high tip or with an operated appearance. According to your anatomy, an assessment will be made to determine how I can improve that area, but, above all, that the nasal passages are free and your breathing is normal, without discomfort.

If your nose has a deviated septum, if your breathing is difficult and you want to improve the structure of your nose, I recommend you to visit our website by clicking here. My medical team and I will work to give you the nose you want.

As I told you, in the first consultation we will make an assessment to know how I can improve the shape of your nose. You should know that there are two types of rhinoplasty, closed and open.

Closed rhinoplasty is a surgery where no incisions are made on the outside of the nose because through the nostrils, the specialist improves the structure of the nose and its tip.

On the other hand, open rhinoplasty is where a very small incision is made between the nostrils to detail the inside of the nose.

This type of rhinoplasty is the most appropriate because having a complete view of all parts of the nose, I can improve the entire nasal structure more easily.

Before and after rhinoplasty

After you are examined, they will be ready to start the preoperative and to begin, you will be asked several questions related to your lifestyle, your diet, your daily activities, exercises, medications you take, diseases you suffer, or medical treatments you comply.

Every detail about your life is fundamental because it is the only way to prevent any kind of risks.

Depending on your answers and your current state of health, you will be given some routine tests to make sure that everything in your body is under control.

After that stage, you will be ready for nose surgery. You will be given several recommendations related to rhinoplasty and how you should prepare the day before the operation. If you follow all the medical recommendations before and after the nose surgery, you will have the expected results.

Rhinoplasty Postoperative Period

After rhinoplasty, you will feel your face a little swollen, also some bruising will appear in the treated area and around the eyes. You should not be alarmed because these symptoms will disappear before the tenth day and are completely normal. The plastic surgeon will prescribe a series of medications that will help you have a smoother recovery. To get better quickly you should:

  • Sleep with your head slightly elevated; use two pillows. Avoid sleeping on your side or face down.
  • Avoid lowering or raising your face abruptly.
  • Do not lift weights.
  • Stop exercising for the next four weeks after rhinoplasty.
  • Do not inhale or exhale forcefully through your nose, as you may bleed.
  • While you are recovering, do not expose yourself to the sun (beach or pool). When authorized, you will use sunscreen to protect the skin of your face.

Changes in the Patient After Rhinoplasty

Most patients who want to improve a part of their body are shy and withdrawn; especially people who are candidates for nose surgery or rhinoplasty. They usually do not want to have their pictures taken and their social circle is very small since they do not want people to notice those features that make them uncomfortable. After the rhinoplasty I perform, patients look more cheerful, confident, and with elevated self-esteem; some change their attire or hair color, and in general, they feel better about their appearance.
