What is rhinoplasty
Also called nose surgery or nose job, rhinoplasty reshapes the nose by reducing or increasing the size, removing a hump, changing the shape of the tip or bridge, narrowing the span of the nostrils, or changing the angle between the nose and upper lip. This procedure may also relieve from breathing difficulties when combined with surgery performed on the nasal septum.
You may go back to work after one week. For more strenuous activities, you need to wait two to three weeks. You should avoid any activity that could have impact on the nose. You should also avoid sunburns for at least eight weeks and use sunblock that provides UVA and UVB protection. The final result may take one year or sometimes even longer to be achieved.
How the patient recovers
Some of the risks involved with this procedure are infection, asymmetry, unsatisfactory nasal shape and incomplete improvement, which requires additional surgery.
We use the most advanced surgical technology, disposables and techniques when performing treatments and procedures to maximise your results and diminish the length of your recovery period. To reduce risks and maintain as much of the results for as long as possible we recommend that you refrain from smoking for a minimum of six weeks prior to the surgery and for the duration of your recovery period.
