Question: How much does rhinoplasty cost? Does thick skin nose recur to its initial shape after six months?
Dr Answer:No, if the nose surgery is performed by an expert and experienced surgeon, the result will be permanent. However, as a general rule, it should be kept in mind that 10 percent of the people who do rhinoplasty would need reconstructive surgery.
Question: I’ve had rhinoplasty once and I’m not satisfied. Do you do reconstructive surgery? How much will it cost and what is your office address?
Dr Answer:Yes, we also do reconstructive surgery. Reconstructive surgery can be done at least one year after your previous surgery. For a more accurate examination and assessment of the result of the surgery, you should be examined in person. Contact us
Question: If it is possible, please share some examples of your own surgeries, because I’ve seen the same photos on the websites of some other doctors too.
Dr Answer:All the photos that you see in the photo gallery of this website are examples of our surgeries. We never have used any other doctor’s pictures. As you have realized, the name and the address of the website is mentioned on all the photos. If you have seen the same photos in another place, please send us the link.
Again, it depends on what type of rhinoplasty surgery you need, but you shouldn’t experience much pain for a prolonged period of time. Gauze wicks are placed in your nose after surgery and must remain in your nostrils for a day, which can cause slight discomfort, but once they are removed, you shouldn’t experience high levels of discomfort. If necessary, Doctor can prescribe pain medication.
Rhinoplasty is an outpatient procedure performed in a surgery center usually under a general anesthetic. The procedure, from beginning to end, usually takes between 1-3 hours, depending upon the desired results of the procedure. A rhinoplasty may be performed in two ways. The first is called a closed procedure, in which the incisions are made inside the nostrils where scarring will not be visible. The tissue across the top and sides of the nose will be manipulated from below. The second type of rhinoplasty procedure is called an open procedure, and is performed by making an incision across the columella, the narrow strip of tissue between the nostrils. Both procedures are frequently used.
Serious risks associated with rhinoplasty are extremely rare. Many people experience nasal drainage a few days following the surgery, and it is normal if some of the drainage is “blood tinged.” It is advised you do not work or attend school for at least one week after the surgery to ensure you heal properly.
There will be some swelling and bruising following a rhinoplasty surgery. Headaches and moderate pain are common, but will be easily controlled with a prescription pain medication. Unlike many other types of cosmetic surgeries however, the downtime is minimal. Most patients are able to return to their normal activities within a matter of days. Additionally, patients get to enjoy the immediate results of a new nose!
“Before” and “after” pictures help show the difference rhinoplasty can make in individuals, but you shouldn’t base your decision solely on these pictures. You should also discuss what your plastic surgeon can do for your specific situation.
