There Are Things About Rhinoplasty You Need to Know
- Posted on: Jan 15 2020
Rhinoplasty, known as a nose job, is a popular plastic surgery procedure that, when well-planned, can have positive effects on a person’s life. The modifications that are made to refine the shape and size of the nose are permanent. In the ideal situation, these changes achieve cohesiveness among all facial features. For this to happen, it is important for there to be clear communication between the doctor and the patient. We also find it imperative to discuss particulars about nose surgery that may not be commonly known. Here are a few that you need to know.
- There is no perfect nose. We understand this is a point many people would argue when observing their favorite celebrity nose. This can be a tricky subject. A nose looks “perfect” because of how it aligns with other facial features, not because of its unique size and shape alone. Most noses have tiny imperfections and slight asymmetry. The objective of rhinoplasty is to create a shape and size that fits well with the face as a whole. This is the best way to reach “perfection” for each patient.
- Disappointment should be expected. Most noses come out of surgery pretty swollen and bruised. The skin around the eyes may also bruise and swell. When we take that important first look at the new nose after surgery, we do not expect to see something that the patient will love right away. What we look at is how the tissue is healing and how the overall structure of the nose appears. An experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Kunkel can observe the nose, even though the swelling and bruising, and see the improvements that will be more evident as surgical side effects subside.
- No one may notice the incredible new nose you have. If you’re thinking of having rhinoplasty, it’s likely that you are very aware of the things you don’t like about your nose. Others probably don’t notice these imperfections. Therefore, when you have a refined, shapely nose that fits your face, you might feel mildly let down if others don’t comment on the change in your appearance. If this were to happen, remember that it’s you whom you want to impress the most.
