About the Rhinoplasty procedure
Throughout time, beauty has been defined by the harmony and symmetry of facial features, proportional and harmonious. Because not all of us are lucky enough to inherit perfect features, to get them, it is necessary to go through the esthetician’s office.
The rhinoplasty procedure is a surgical intervention addressed to patients who face complexes created by the appearance or shape of their nose. At the same time, the intervention can also correct medical conditions, such as septal deviation.
The procedure is addressed to patients who face an inappropriate shape of the nose (too big, misshapen). But also for those who have breathing problems – deviated septum. In the case of minor patients, who wish to correct their shape, we recommend that they wait until they reach the age of 18.
How is rhinoplasty performed?
Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that involves correcting the shape of the nose by changing the shape of the cartilages and nasal bones.
The intervention is performed under general anesthesia, to ensure the patient’s comfort throughout the procedure.
The surgeon can correct the tip of the nose by removing part of the cartilage if the patient is dealing with a nose that is too long or too wide.
At the same time, the doctor can straighten and narrow the nasal bones by repositioning them.
Being a surgical procedure, you should know that the result will not be visible immediately.
The area will be inflamed for the first few weeks after surgery. It is a perfectly normal process after a delicate intervention such as rhinoplasty.
You will notice the shape and size of the nose when the doctor removes the bandages.
We recommend that you come for consultations according to medical recommendations.
Avoid sauna exposure and hot showers during recovery.
Stop physical activity during the post-operative period, to avoid possible discomfort.
Try to sit with your head slightly higher than the rest of your body to prevent nosebleeds.
Do not lift weights or sit with your head down.
We recommend not applying creams or cosmetics very close to the nose area.

How hard is recovery after rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty surgery is a delicate intervention, which aims to correct both aesthetic and functional defects. Indeed, the first days after rhinoplasty are quite difficult, but slowly, slowly, the area will heal and the patient will be able to resume his daily activities. The results are so beautiful that when they look in the mirror the patients are happy with the decision made.
Can I treat both respiratory and aesthetic problems at the same time?
Yes, during a rhinoplasty operation, the doctor can give your nose a suitable shape as well as solve small breathing problems. Everything will happen within the same operation, and the patient will enjoy both the functionality and the aesthetic side, which previously created strong complexes for him.
