Rhinoplasty aims to reshape the nose, by reducing nasal humps, shortening the nasal tip and eliminating deformities in order to make it more proportionate to the rest of the face.
This intervention may be necessary for functional or purely aesthetic reasons.
Specifically, rhinoplasty is intended for people with a large and flattened nose, a developed tip, a non-aesthetic nasal appearance, or post-traumatic deformities.
Recommendations to be followed before rhinoplasty
During the consultation, the surgeon must make sure that there are no contraindications to this surgery.
S/he will ask you to have a CT scan examination and a blood test.
In order to minimize any potential risk, it is recommended to
Stop smoking at least one month before and after surgery
Stop taking aspirin during the 10 days preceding the surgery
For better results, it is necessary not to do physically challenging activities for 1 month after surgery. Resumption of normal life is only possible after 3 weeks, which makes it necessary to have a 15-day recovery period.
The final aspect of the nose can only be seen within 3 months (sometimes it takes over a year to see the final result if the patient has thick skin).
Make sure to follow your doctor’s recommendations and stick to the check-up schedule.
