Rhinoplasty Rhinoplasty, more commonly known as a nose job, is a type of surgery that can change the size, shape, and structure of the nose. This surgery is designed to help individuals gain confidence or to correct structural defects, such as a deviated septum. Determining if rhinoplasty is the right procedure for you can be overwhelming. However, with a better understanding of this surgery, you can make an informed decision.

Am I a Good Candidate for Rhinoplasty?

Deciding whether you should have rhinoplasty is a personal decision. Unless you have a medical condition, the choice to have this surgery should be based on how comfortable you are with the way you look and how confident you are. You should also consider the outcome that you desire from the procedure. Many patients benefit from rhinoplasty as it provides them with a significant impact on their level of confidence.

To qualify for surgery, you must be in good health. It is also important that you are a non-smoker and that you have reached the age where the bones in your face have stopped growing.

Making the Decision to Have Surgery

Before having rhinoplasty, you should meet with a plastic surgeon to discuss the procedure. You will want to discuss the outcome that you desire following the surgery. This includes the size of your nose and its shape post-surgery. You will also use this consultation to discuss your medical history.

What to Expect During and After Rhinoplasty

The procedure takes around two hours to complete. In the days following, you will experience some pain, bruising, and swelling. It can take around two weeks before you are able to resume normal activities.

It takes between two and four weeks to completely heal from the surgery. You should avoid any strenuous exercises or activities during this time to avoid complications.
