    Choosing the Best Rhinoplasty Surgeon

    Rhinoplasty is one of the most difficult operations in cosmetic surgery. In Australia Rhinoplasty is performed by plastic surgeons. Your ideal choice in choosing a surgeon is word of mouth, personal before and after photos, and your personal research about rhinoplasty. You should get cost estimations of Sydney Rhinoplasty by Dr Bright. Please research your surgeon thoroughly and specifically for the Cosmetic Rhinoplasty procedure. Just because your surgeon can perform a breast enlargement, doesn’t necessarily mean he is a good nasal surgeon. Remember, rhinoplasty is a very difficult operation.

    Recovery Post Nose Job Surgery:

    During the first two to three days after Rhinoplasty surgery, the face is going to feel swollen, your nose may likely ache, and you may experience a dull headache. There will be swelling and bruising around the eyes, worsening for around four days. A few patients also get very swollen lips and cheeks including difficulty smiling. Each 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 considerably better in your second week of recovery.

    The most uncomfortable part of the recovery following 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. Expect a little swelling around your eyes for the nextseveral weeks. As the swelling decrease, you will start to see the improvements from your nose surgery. Rhinoplasty recovery is divided into 2 phases. The primary surgical recovery outlined 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 much 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 a day for about 30 minutes. Do not apply ice directly on your nose . It also helps to elevate your head especially when you are sleeping to help reduce the swelling. If necessary, you can take pain medications as prescribed by your plastic surgeon.

    Rhinoplasty Revision

    Occasionally a previous nose job or rhinoplasty did not go well, or achieved the desired result. In these cases, you may wish to perform a rhinoplasty revision. Secondary or Revisional surgery may well 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 calls for an extremely experienced surgeon. The problems that can be remedied include:
    1. Excessive nasal length
    2. Round tip & Polybeak defect
    3. Nose tip scarring
    4. Excessive hump removal
    5. Crooked nose

    There are many fundamental issues with secondary or tertiary nasal revision. The success of this procedure is dependent on what your original doctor has done to the structure of the nose. If the damage done in the initial procedure is great then the result of revisional surgery is hindered.
