Achieve Facial Harmony with Rhinoplasty
January 14, 2015
Does the shape of your nose bother you? Is it smaller, bigger, bumped, or deformed enough that it lowers your self-esteem? If you feel that changing the shape or size of your nose is what you need not only to improve your facial appearance but also your confidence, then a rhinoplasty may be right for you.
Rhinoplasty, also known as nose surgery, reshapes the nose to achieve facial harmony. It can be done as a cosmetic procedure to augment or reduce a patient’s nose or as a reconstructive procedure for those with birth defects or injuries that affect the nose. Nose surgery can also be done for functional reasons to improve a person’s breathing.
What to expect after surgery
The results of rhinoplasty can be very satisfying. However, the success of your results will also depend on how well you follow your surgeon’s instructions. After surgery, you may notice that your face feels puffy. Bruising and swelling may also be present. You can minimize swelling and reduce any discomfort by applying cold compresses. If pain persists, you can take pain medications recommended by your doctor. The results of the procedure become more noticeable as days pass by.
