Rhinoplasty, more commonly called as a nose job, is a surgical procedure that is being done in so many countries these days but most particularly in the United States.
A lot of women, thousands really, who are below eighteen years old, are having this procedure done every single day. Statistics have shown that there are more than 300,000 surgeries performed each year. That is indeed an incredible number when you think a about it. Also, it shows how people, especially women, deem themselves to be imperfect as they are simply not satisfied with how they look. Regardless of that fact, people should have an equal opportunity to change the things they want to. They simply have to work for it, that’s all.
There are several options on procedures which one can take as well. In fact, it can also be possible to undergo an outpatient procedure. During the process, an anesthetic can be used, but that also depends on the needs of the patients and the instructions of the surgeon. For instance, to reduce the risks of negative side effects, a person may opt to have a local anesthetic injected rather than the general one.
The nose is basically surgically enhanced according to what the patient needs and requires from the procedure. It will also be done in the safest possible way. Once it has been completed then it would be up to the patient what he or she wants to decide on next. The surgeon will use the best method to shape the bone as well as the cartilage to come up with the results the patient is expecting.
Even though a lot people are having this surgical procedure done making it quite common in today’s world, it’s still one of the most technically difficult methods of plastic surgery there is. The reason for this is that most patients actually go back for reconstructive procedures after they undergo their first rhinoplasty. People try to avoid this by looking for the most reputable surgeons around, preferably one with the ideal experience and the technical skill required to being effective and efficient in such a field.
After the surgery is completed, the recovery period then commences. For a lot of patients, it lasts for about 2 weeks or so. During the first week, patients are required to wear a splint around their nose to keep it stable and to let its new shape take hold. It would then be possible for them to recover at home or in their own preferred environment.
During the first week, simple activities such as chewing may pose as somewhat of a challenge. People who are recovering from this procedure are asked to avoid solid food as much as possible. A week later the splint will then be removed and the person can resume his or her normal activities.
