Myths About Rhinoplasty
What are the myths and facts about rhinoplasty?
Let’s set the myths to rest, shall we?
The surgery is quick and simple. The truth is, each rhinoplasty surgery is different from the last, and there is nothing simple about it. The rhinoplasty surgeon will work with you to correct any defects and make any changes within reason that you wish to make. Normally it takes 1 to 2 hours to do a rhinoplasty and sometimes as long as 3 to 4 hours. It depends on the skills of the surgeon, what sort of changes need to be implemented and how detailed they are, how many procedures the rhinoplasty surgeon has performed, and his or her pace during surgery.
Find A Proper Rhinoplasty Surgeon
Long Lasting Results
The results won’t last for long. Actually, a rhinoplasty procedure is long lasting, which is why you must be absolutely certain that you want to have this surgery done.
Any surgeon can do rhinoplasty. While it is partially true that almost any plastic surgeon can do a rhinoplasty, if you want it to look natural and well-proportioned, you need to find a proper rhinoplasty surgeon, known as a facial plastic surgeon, who knows exactly what they are doing. Don’t be afraid to ask to see before and after photos from previous patients as well as testimonials.
Only women get a rhinoplasty. More and more men are opting for various types of cosmetic surgery, including rhinoplasty. Men typically get a bump removed to make the nose more symmetrical or slimmer.
I will have breathing problems after the procedure. Most rhinoplasty will not affect the patient’s breathing in the long term. There certainly is time during the recovery and healing process where breathing may be affected as swollen tissues settle into place.
During & After Rhinoplasty Surgery
Downtime for a rhinoplasty
Rhinoplasty is painful. This is not true. You will be under a general or local anaesthetic. There may be some minor discomfort from swelling after the surgery, but this will go away after a few weeks, as long as you take your prescribed pain medication. During your recovery time, you will be wearing a nose cast and may feel as if you are stuffed up or as if you had a cold. You can have your nose redone to any size. Your surgeon will give you a clear picture on limitations to your nose. It is highly recommended that you follow your rhinoplasty surgeon’s directions on this so that you retain a natural look.
Downtime is quite long for a rhinoplasty. This is another myth. In fact, compared to other procedures, there is little downtime associated with a nose job. Once the splint is removed (usually about 7 days after the procedure), the patient can return to work and normal daily activities. Most swelling and bruising usually subsides within 7 to 14 days as well. My insurance won’t cover it. This is not necessarily true. If the procedure is being done to correct breathing difficulties such as a deviated septum, then the insurance will generally cover it. Have you heard other things about rhinoplasty surgery? Before you accept them as fact, you need to consider the source. Unless that source is a licensed cosmetic surgeon, the things you hear or read about this surgery may not be accurate. For this reason, if you are considering rhinoplasty, it is important to bring up all your questions and concerns with your surgeon. This will help you sort out the facts from the myths.
