Choosing the Best Rhinoplasty Surgeon

Rhinoplasty is one of the most complicated operations in cosmetic surgery. In Australia Rhinoplasty is carried out by cosmetic 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 Sunshine Coast and Nambour Rhinoplasty by Dr Bright. Please research your chosen surgeon thoroughly and specifically for the Cosmetic Rhinoplasty procedure. Just because a surgeon can perform a breast enlargement, doesn’t mean he is a good 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, the face will feel puffy, the nose may ache, and you may experience headaches. You should plan on resting with your head elevated for the first couple of days. There will be swelling and bruising around your eyes, worsening for around four days. A few patients also get very swollen lips and cheeks and have difficulty smiling. Each these symptoms will subside within 3 weeks of the nose procedure. 7 days after all nasal packing, dressings, internal and external splints and stitches from the Rhinoplasty can be removed. You will feel significantly better in your second week of recovery.

The most uncomfortable aspect 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. Anticipate 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 Try applying cold compression in the affected area. Apply cold ice packs up to 3 times a day for around 30 minutes. Do not apply ice directly on your nose which can remain extremely sensitive for weeks. It may also help to elevate your head especially when you are sleeping to help reduce the swelling. If necessary, you may take pain medications.

Rhinoplasty Revision

Sometimes a previous nose job or rhinoplasty surgery has not gone well, or achieved the desired look. In these cases, you may wish to perform a rhinoplasty revision. Secondary or Revisional surgery may well need to be performed to 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 challenging and requires an extremely expert surgeon. The problems that can be addressed include:
1. Excessive nasal length
2. Round tip & Polybeak deformity
3. Supratip scarring
4. Residual hump or Excessive hump removal
5. Crooked nose

There actually are many inherent issues with secondary or tertiary nasal revision. The results of this operation depends on what your original plastic surgeon has done to the structure of the nose. If the damage done to the first procedure is great then the result of revisional surgery can be 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.
