What is rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a nose job, is a surgical procedure that improves the appearance of your nose, including the shape, length, tip and nostrils. It can also treat breathing concerns caused by a deviated septum. The nose is the centre of the face and represents a facial feature that many patients seek to enhance, reshape or correct. It plays an extremely important role in facial proportion and has great ethnic variability. An excellent rhinoplasty is designed to ensure that proportions are optimized and that your nose still complements your other facial features.
Who is rhinoplasty right for?
Rhinoplasty could be right for you if you have had concerns about your nose shape, size, or symmetry. Rhinoplasty is indicated in cases when your nose is overly large, wide, deviated to one side or droops during speech or smiling. Surgical goals related to these concerns may represent big changes, but a rhinoplasty can also be indicated to improve smaller, more specific features of the nose, such as wide nostrils, a dorsal hump or an undefined tip.
What are my rhinoplasty options?
The most important part of a rhinoplasty is the consultation. Your surgeon will work hard to translate your vision into a surgical plan with realistic expectations. Consultations will be as long as needed to properly plan your procedure, and will sometimes take place over more than one visit. Your surgeon will use standard photography as well as 3D imaging to demonstrate realistic surgical outcomes.
What are the risks of rhinoplasty?
The most common risk of rhinoplasty surgery is receiving a result that is different from what you expected. This is exceedingly rare with FORM Face + Body’s comprehensive consultation and consistent, superior surgical results. The other risks of rhinoplasty are predominantly cosmetic, such as persistent asymmetry or deviation. Very rare risks can include changes to smelling or breathing.
How long will the results of rhinoplasty last?
Results of rhinoplasty are permanent, although it is possible for the soft tissue and cartilage of the nose to change over time.
Bringing photos of other people that have nasal features that you like can be a helpful way to begin a discussion during your consultation. Your surgeon will help align your vision with a realistic expected outcome that you can feel excited about. This procedure is most commonly done under general anesthesia as a day surgery procedure.
Recovery depends on the extent of the rhinoplasty and any accompanying procedures. Light activities may commence the day after surgery and within 1-2 weeks you can return to your normal activities. The appearance of your nose will improve gradually until 4-6 weeks after the surgery. The final nasal shape will settle after 6-12 months. Skin care and sun protection is necessary during the recovery period, and sports or major physical activity may need to be limited for 4-6 weeks.
