What You Need to Know About a Nose Job (Rhinoplasty)
There’s a popular expression that indicates that the “nose has it” – and sometimes, that “it” can be an altered or different facial appearance than what we’d like to see. Our noses can have a major influence on our overall look and appearance. You only need to look at Hollywood celebrities to see how much of a difference a rhinoplasty, or nose job, can make (hello, Jennifer Aniston and Ashlee Simpson!).
When you feel that the appearance of your nose is holding you back, it can be difficult to gain the confidence you need to conquer your day-to-day activities. If you’re ready to make a big change, then you should visit Dr. Serebrakian at the Bay Area Laser Cosmetic Surgery Center for a rhinoplasty consultation.
Dr. Serebrakian is a board certified head and neck surgeon, as well as a member of the American Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery, California Society of Cosmetic Surgery, and California Society of Facial Plastic Surgery. Therefore, you can be sure that when you’re undergoing a nose job at the accredited and certified Bay Area Laser Cosmetic Surgery Center, you’re putting your nose in the hands of the very best.
What Will Happen During Your Rhinoplasty Procedure?
Your rhinoplasty procedure will involve meeting with Dr. Serebrakian for an initial consultation, during which an appropriate gallery of before & after photos will be reviewed. Once you’ve communicated the results you’re looking for, you will undergo the rhinoplasty procedure. Generally, this involves going under a local, or in more cases, general anesthesia). The rhinoplasty will involve reshaping the nose’s cartilage and tissue to produce the desired results that will fit to the individual’s face and ethnicity.
Recovery from a nose job can vary, from only four days to up to ten days, as it takes time for the nose’s delicate cartilage to heal from the procedure. For the first week after the procedure, you’ll wear a reshaping bandage, which will help keep your new nose shape in place. You may want to take a week off of work, which gives the nose time to heal and the bruises to reduce in severity.
Depending on your consultation, you may even discover that you don’t need to undergo an invasive nose job. Many advances in rhinoplasty have made it possible for the nose to be reshaped without undergoing surgery. Radiesse fillers can give you the temporary nose shape you’re looking for; however, you will need to maintain these results with regular appointments.
