Are you thinking about getting a rhinoplasty? You aren’t alone! Rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job, are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed in the world. At the Sydney Institute of Plastic Surgery, we’ve talked to countless men and women who have spent their lives hating their noses and were ready for a change.
Sound familiar? Here’s everything you that you need about nose jobs before you take the plunge.
What Is Rhinoplasty?
Nose jobs are a completely customisable procedure. When you visit the Sydney Institute of Plastic Surgery, Dr Turner will chat with you about your objectives and concerns. Whether you want to correct nasal asymmetry, remove humps, or simply decrease the overall size of your nose, rhinoplasty can be an ideal solution.
Before your procedure, Dr Turner will create a treatment plan for you. While it can be helpful to bring in some photos of noses that you like, it is important to remember that your best plan is to create a nose that is perfectly suited to the unique shape and structure of your face, rather than just copying someone else’s nose. Utilising 3D imaging technology, Dr Turner will be able to show you what your new nose would look like following a procedure.
How to Get Started
Prior to making a commitment, it’s essential to realise that rhinoplasty is one of the most difficult types of plastic surgery. It is a very elaborate operation that requires a high level of expertise and experience. Specialising in natural looking results, Dr Turner is one of the country’s leading plastic surgeons.
Your first step to getting a nose job with Dr Turner is to visit the Sydney Institute of Plastic Surgery for an initial consultation. This is a great opportunity to have Dr Turner answer any questions that you may have to about the procedure so that you have all of the information that you need to make an informed decision moving forward.
Recovering After a Nose Job
While each rhinoplasty experience is slightly different depending on the exact details of the surgery, you will want to plan on a healing time of approximately two weeks.
When you wake up, your will have a small splint on your nose. You will need to wear this for up to two weeks to ensure that your nose heals perfectly in place. Inside of this splint, you will have two more tiny splints, one for each nostril. These will need to stay in place approximately one week.
During the healing process, you can expect little to no discomfort. Dr Turner will provide you with a prescription for pain relief to last you for the first couple of days and then over-the-counter medicine will be more than enough to deal with any discomfort.
While the initial swelling will go down quite quickly, the more minor swelling that remains will very gradually reduce over several months as the final look of your nose takes shape.
