Cosmetic Nose Surgery
Right in the middle of your face can lay your greatest asset or your worst enemy. A well-shaped nose can add a sense of symmetry and style to any face. On the other hand, a nose with a little more character can throw off the delicate balance of features. Some people were born this way, while others may have had an accident resulting in a broken nose. Whatever the case, there is help available for you and your nose.
The decision to undergo surgery
For those people who are unhappy with their nose feel their problems are out there for the world to see. In fact, it is one of our most prominent features. It is also compounded by the fact that noses are one of the few parts of our bodies that never stop growing. If you feel that your nose is too large at the age of 25, imagine how you will feel at 65?
When deciding to have plastic surgery, it is important to do your research before hand. Research potential surgeons and ensure that you look at their before and after pictures. You need to be comfortable with your surgeon and the clinic as a whole. Also, make sure that you have realistic expectations for your own outcomes. You will not be happy with the results if your expectations are not in sync with the information that the doctor is giving you.
What is the procedure like?
There are two types of procedures that can be performed on your nose cosmetically: Rhinoplasty and Septoplasty.
Rhinoplasty is quite possibly the most performed cosmetic surgery. It can completely alter the appearance of your face. When discussing this procedure with your surgeon, it is important to keep all of your facial features in perspective. One nose might not look quite as good on another face. Listen to your doctor's advice. They have done this many times before.
Septoplasty is a corrective surgical procedure done to straighten the nasal septum. This technique will straighten the walls of the septum, which will improve breathing and ensure a tidier cartilage wall.
What is the aftercare like?
After awaking from surgery, you will most likely feel groggy as a result of the anesthesia. This is normal and to be expected. There is a slight chance of light bruising under the eyes, but this should be completely gone within a week.
If you are considering having cosmetic nose surgery, it is important to speak to a surgeon to understand all of your options and what is right for you. Contact us at the Me Clinic if you would like more information.
