Here are a few things you should know about nose surgeries:
Deciding on surgery
Before deciding on undergoing nose surgery, talk with your doctor regarding issues with your nose. Your doctor will check your problems and judge whether or not surgery is a feasible option. It is only with your doctor's confirmation that you should go for the surgery.
The surgery is done either with local anesthesia (your nose and surrounding areas will be numbed) or general anesthesia (you will fall asleep). The surgeon will make incisions in your nostrils and base of the nose and alter the shape, structure and position of the cartilages in your nose for appealing shape and better functionality. Polyp removal is also done by rhinoplasty.
After the surgery, you will be required to wear a nose splint. You can expect swelling around the eyes which will begin to subside after the third day.
Swelling in the nose will go away after six months. Therefore do not expect to see your results immediately, final condition of your nose will be apparent after the recovery period is over.
Will you develop scars?
As with all cosmetic procedures, rhinoplasty can leave scars. In closed rhinoplasty, incisions are made inside the nostrils and hence there is no scarring. In open rhinoplasty, an additional cut is made along the columella and this may result in scarring. However, the position of the scar is such that it is almost unnoticeable.
Any surgical procedure has certain risks. These risks associated with nose surgery include:
2. An adverse effect to anesthesia
3. Unfavourable outcomes
4. Visible scarring
6. Difficulty breathing
7. Chronic nosebleeds
8. A perforated septum
10. Burst blood vessels
11. Nervous damage
12.Possibility of revision surgery
