Rhinoplasty Perth Nose Surgery: Modern Approach

Rhinoplasty: Comes from the Greek word: Rhinos “Nose” and Plassein, “to shape”. Hence a “nose job” is cosmetic surgery of the nose and it is one of the most common of all plastic surgery procedures. In fact Rhinoplasty was amongst the very first cosmetic plastic surgery procedures ever performed back in 1898.

The recent Australian look for Rhinoplasty is 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 discuss your desires clearly with your Perth Rhinoplasty specialist doctor at the time of your nose surgery assessment.

Suitable Candidates for Rhinoplasty or Nose Job Surgery

The best patients for Rhinoplasty are those people who are looking for more proportion in the way they look, not those searching for downright perfection.

Choosing the Best Rhinoplasty Surgeon

Rhinoplasty is one of the most challenging operations in cosmetic surgery. In Australia Rhinoplasty is carried out by a few different groups of doctors. 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 Perth Rhinoplasty by Dr Bright. Please research your chosen surgeon thoroughly and specifically for the Cosmetic Rhinoplasty procedure. Just because your 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 immediately after Rhinoplasty surgery, your face will certainly feel puffed up, the nose could ache, and you may experience headaches. 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 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 following the Rhinoplasty operation 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 some swelling around your eyes for several weeks. As the swelling comes down, you will start to see the improvements from your nose surgery. Rhinoplasty healing is divided into 2 phases. The early 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 much worse close to the eyes Try applying cold compression in the affected area. Apply cold ice packs up to 3 times each day for around 30 minutes. Do not apply ice directly on your nose which can remain extremely sensitive for severalweeks. It also helps to elevate your head especially when you are sleeping to help reduce the swelling. If necessary, you may take pain medications.

Rhinoplasty Revision

Occasionally a previous nose job or rhinoplasty surgery did not go well, or achieved the desired look. In these cases, you may wish to perform a rhinoplasty revision. Secondary or Revisional surgery may need to be done 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 complicated and requires an extremely skilled surgeon. The problems that can be fixed include:
1. Excessive nasal length
2. Round tip & Polybeak deformity
3. Supratip scarring
4. Excessive hump removal
5. Crooked nose

There actually are lots of inherent problems with secondary or tertiary nasal revision. The success of this procedure hinges on what your original specialist has done to the structure of the nose. If the damage done to the initial operation is great then the result of revisional surgery can be less than ideal. In some 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.
