The latest trend in rhinoplasty surgery here in Australia is the “natural” look far removed from the 80′ s “operated look” seen in numerous Hollywood stars. Surgery of the nose is currently the most common of all plastic and cosmetic surgery techniques. The best patients for a rhinoplasty are those people who are looking for seeking out a more balanced look, not those pursuing flawlessness. Rhinoplasty can be performed on its own, or commonly combined with breast enlargement in younger patients or Facelift/eyelift surgery in older patients.

The surgeons at Central Coast Rhinoplasty are Renowned Specialist Plastic Surgeon with an interest in Rhinoplasty for cosmetic and functional purposes. Dr Ben has performed around 750 cosmetic Rhinoplasty cases. Dr Bright executes both cosmetic Rhinoplasty as well as functional Septoplasty and Turbinoplasty for breathing problems.

The suitable age for Rhinoplasty is between 20-40. Between the ages of 16-20 the surgeon must make an assessment based on physical and psychological maturity. After the age of 40 the Rhinoplasty surgeon needs to take the patient’s skin quality into account as the cosmetic result could be affected by excessive nasal tip puffiness especially if the patient has very thick, oily and sebaceous skin.

Rhinoplasty Central Coast Nose Surgery: The Modern Approach

Rhinoplasty: Arises from the Greek word: Rhinos “Nose” and Plassein, “to shape”. Therefore a “nose job” is cosmetic surgery of the nose and it is among the most common of all plastic surgery procedures.

The present-day Australian trend in Rhinoplasty is all about the “natural” look and NOT the upturned and “pixie nose” look of the 1980s. However, if you wish for a cute or Hollywood or “sculpted” nose, please talk to your Central Coast Rhinoplasty specialist doctor at the time of your initial nose surgery appointment.

Choosing the Best Rhinoplasty Surgeon

Rhinoplasty is one of the most complicated operations in cosmetic surgery. In Australia Rhinoplasty is carried out by plastic surgeons. Your ideal choice in choosing a surgeon is word of mouth, personal before and after photos, and your personal research . This should also include cost estimations of Central Coast Rhinoplasty by Dr Bright. Please research your chosen surgeon thoroughly and specifically for the Cosmetic Rhinoplasty procedure. Just because your surgeon is great at breast enlargement, doesn’t mean he is a great nasal surgeon. Remember, this is a very difficult operation.

Recovery Post Nose Job Surgery:

During the first two to three days soon after Rhinoplasty surgery, your face will certainly feel puffed up, the nose may likely ache, and you may experience headaches. There will be swelling and bruising around your eyes, worsening for around four days. Some patients even get very swollen lips and cheeks including difficulty smiling. Each of these symptoms will subside within 3 weeks of the nose procedure. By the end of one week all nasal packing, dressings, splints and stitches from the Rhinoplasty can be removed. You will feel significantly better in your second week of recovery.

The most uncomfortable part of the recovery right after the Rhinoplasty operations is the inability to breathe through the nose for several days due to swelling. This usually improves within four weeks of undergoing the nose job procedure. You should expect some swelling around your eyes for several weeks. As the swelling subsides, you will start to see the improvements from your nose surgery. Rhinoplasty healing is divided into 2 phases. The primary surgical recovery described above followed by a slow process of healing and scar modulation that can take up to 2 years in some patients.

Swelling tends to be considerably worse near the eyes and you can better manage the situation by applying cold compression to the affected area. Apply cold compression up to 3 times each day for around 30 minutes. Whatever you do, don’t do the same directly on your nose which can remain extremely sensitive for several weeks. It also helps to elevate your head especially when you are sleeping to help decrease the swelling. If necessary, you can take pain medications as prescribed by your plastic surgeon.

Rhinoplasty Revision

Occasionally a previous nose job or rhinoplasty has not gone well, or achieved the desired result. In these cases, you may wish to perform a rhinoplasty revision. Secondary or Revisional surgery may need to be performed in order achieve your desired look. This is far more common in Men and Women with thick oily (sebaceous) skin. The best time to perform this is around 12-18 months after the first operation.

Revisional surgery is complex and requires an extremely expert surgeon. The problems that can be fixed include:
1. Excessive nasal length
2. Round tip & Polybeak deformity
3. Supratip scarring
4. Residual hump or Excessive hump removal
5. Crooked nose

There are many inherent concerns with secondary or tertiary nasal revision. The results of this operation hinges on what your original specialist has done to the structure of the nose. Sometimes the damage done is so great then the result of revisional surgery is hindered. In many cases, the surgeon will use Ear cartilage or cartilage from the Rib in order to build all the structures destroyed by the primary surgeon. Bone use is no longer recommended in revisional surgery.
