Cosmetic Nose Jobs: Postoperative Recommendations


Nose cosmetic surgery is an operative procedure, where the planning of new nose shape is of decisive importance, taking into account the unique characterizations of the nose and its proportionality with other elements of the face. As nose job specialists, Florida residents and beyond rely on us for all thing related to rhinoplasty.


Postoperative Recommendations

Rest, follow the recommendations of the doctors, take the prescribed medicines, 24 hours after the procedure to cool the intervention site, it is recommended to do some lymphatic drains.


Possible Discomforts After The Procedure

Edema of the point of the nose for a few months labored breathing.


Types Of Surgical Corrections

Nose influences the appearance of the face more than any other part, and it also has a very important function in breathing, purification, humidification, and warming of air before it falls into the lungs.

Nose surgical corrections can be varied as follows:


Procedure Step

Both operations are performed through incisions inside the nose in the case of closed technique or through a short incision of the nasal septum in case of the open technique. Which method will be applied depends on the situation and shape of the nose, if it should be changed or the patient himself would like to change it. In recent years, an open technique is mainly used.

Predictability Of The Result

The nose is a very complicated and unique face organ for each human being. When designing a future shape of the “new nose,” it is very important to take into account the unique characteristics of the nose and its proportionality with other parts of the face. The ideal nose for all human people does not really exist. During a procedure, we do an operation with a living tissue that in each human organism reacts differently. This means that the internal scars and reactions of the different tissues are distinguished (subcutaneous tissue, cartilage, bones, etc.). Thus, the predictability of the result depends on the state of the patient’s tissues, type of deviation of the nasal septum, characteristic of the nose, and facial bone structures, and also genetic factors. Complications are possible, as well as in any other surgical intervention. In 15-20% of cases of nasal operations after the primary intervention, insignificant additional correction operations must be performed for reasons related to sputum;

Process Of Getting Cosmetic Nose Jobs

During the first visit, it is necessary to study the patient’s health status from the medical point of view for any possible trauma, allergy, or nasal interventions previously performed. It is necessary to examine in detail the possible breathing problems or appearance of the patient, the exterior and interior parts of his nose. Then the possibilities of a surgical procedure are evaluated. In the course of a conversation, a photographic analysis is made, and possible nose changes are presented after the intervention. The purpose of this analysis is to understand which surgical procedure is necessary to use and what changes can be achieved as a result of a certain procedure.

The patient is prohibited from taking aspirin 14 days before the procedure.

Procedure Step

Most nasal operations are done under general anesthesia, depending on the scale of the procedure. An insignificant correction is made under local anesthesia and sedation. Before the procedure, the patient must be completely healthy, that is to say, he must not be sick with constipation, even a constipated nose, herpes or other eianthomas or eruptions inside or outside the nose, conjunctivitis and any other analogical disease. The procedure is done in the early morning so that the patient can leave the clinic in the afternoon of the same day.

At the conclusion of the procedure, the caps are inserted into the patient’s nostrils, which are removed 2-3 days after the operation. At this time, the patient must breathe through the mouth.

After The Procedure

After the intervention, the patient is usually in a sleepy state, but the drowsiness disappears the same night or in the morning of the following day. He/she may also feel nauseous, especially if he gets up and starts moving too quickly for six to eight hours after the operation nausea calms down. As a rule, it is not necessary to take any anesthetic after the operation. The patient takes antibiotics through an infusion during operation and also for three to five days afterward, as directed by the doctor. Infections after cosmetic surgery develop in very rare cases. In the case of flushing, swelling, or fever, you need to undergo an urgent medical examination.

After the procedure below, the eyes appear dark circles that disappear in the course of seven to ten days. Seven days after the intervention, the points and measures to limit mobility are removed. Between this same period, the patient can return to work. As a rule, pain after nose surgery is moderate and lasts one to two days. After removing the plugs, it is recommended to wash your nose a few times a day through a spray of physiological solution. After open rhinoplasty, the nose point becomes less sensitive. Swelling of the nose spot lasts for a few months but very rarely can last for an entire year.…

Cosmetic Nose Jobs: How Long Does It Take To See The Final Result?

When we talk about the year it does not mean that you will not notice any results before, in fact, it is likely that after 1-2 months you will notice a much-improved appearance of your nose, Although we are still halfway to the desired end result, especially if it was a refinement or detail surgery (a subtle pointy job is not the same as the correction of a deviated nose, which would be seen almost immediately). It must be considered that the firmly adhered skin has been detached from the underlying structures, that cartilage and bone modifications have been made, and that these issues must recover, heal, adapt, and finally the skin will have to retract and return to adhere and wrap the underlying structures, a period that can take months. Until then, we will notice the skin as being loose, detached, or fluffy, and only as it retracts will it re-mark the bony and cartilaginous structures, and only then would the changes be seen from the nasal work done.

What Factors Can Influence A Faster Or Slower Evolution?

Many circumstances influence, from the type of skin to the surgical technique, or to the type of work performed, whether it is a reduction, refinement, or augmentation and/or reconstruction rhinoplasty, or whether it is a primary or secondary rhinoplasty. Let’s see:

  • Thick and/or oily skin takes much longer to adapt; in fact, it is not recommended to do a major reduction rhinoplasty if the patient has this type of skin, and you will always be reminded of the difficulty in your case of skin adaptation, which is retracted harder.
  • Thin leathers adapt and retract quickly, even if they have the drawback of allowing minor flaws or irregularities to be noticed, by camouflaging very little.
  • The rhinoplasty intended to narrow or reduce the nose (hump or tip) takes longer to define as it depends on the skin retraction on the underlying structures.
  • The augmentation rhinoplasty, to increase the projection of the tip or the back, for the same reason, take less time to reach the end result.
  • The posttraumatic rhinoplasty, or nose to correct deviant, they begin to see results almost immediately, although the details themselves take more months.
  • The secondary rhinoplasty or revisions will always be slower because we are dealing with tissues already damaged, and the new detachment involves new trauma and devascularization.
  • The “open” rhinoplasty always takes longer to evolve than the “closed” technique, since it involves a more extensive detachment.
  • The complexity of the surgical technique performed influences proportionally, and this will depend on the previous state of the nose, and the work necessary to correct it.

Some Measures To Alleviate The Immediate Inflammation

There are some measures, apart from those taken by the surgical and anesthesia team during the intervention, that can help:

  • Avoid taking antiplatelet or anticoagulant medication, or medication that alters coagulation, at least two weeks before, including aspirin, ibuprofen, or anti-inflammatory drugs.
  • Be careful with some multivitamin complexes, or even herbal or “natural” preparations because they may be altering blood clotting, so we should avoid those that contain vitamin E, ginseng, gingko, or fish oils, as we will have more bleeding.
  • Apply ice, or peas, or cold gels, almost continuously, the first 2-3 days. It is the most effective measure we can take to lower or contain inflammation.
  • Rest with your head elevated.
  • Quit tobacco before and after surgery.

And a lot of patience, remember that if the surgeon already told you in the first consultation that it would take you months to see the results of the surgery, there is no point in pressing after surgery because you have been weeks or a few months and it is still not as you would like. It is not that it is not well done, it is simply that the tissues, especially the skin, have not yet been adopted, and the changes made are not yet shown.
