Rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job, is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures. It can be performed to change the shape and size of the nose, as well as to improve its function. There are two types of rhinoplasty: cosmetic and functional. Cosmetic rhinoplasty is performed to improve the appearance of the nose, while functional rhinoplasty is performed to improve the function of the nose, such as correcting a deviated septum. We’re thrilled to offer both here at Real Cosmetic Plastic Surgery in Moonee Ponds, VIC.
How Does Rhinoplasty Work?
This incredible and effective surgery is typically performed under general anaesthesia, ensuring maximum comfort and security for the patient. The surgeon will make incisions in the nose, and then sculpt and reshape the bone and cartilage. In some cases, the surgeon may also use implants to create the desired shape. The surgeon will always follow along with a specific, uniquely-designed treatment plan that addresses the specific patient’s needs. Once the surgery is complete, the incisions will be closed with sutures or surgical tape.
How Long Does the Procedure Take?
This surgery usually takes between one and two hours to complete, which is impressively quick given the lasting results it provides. The exact length of time required for surgery can vary depending on the specific goals and objectives of the patient; more dramatic changes may take slightly longer. In some cases, patients may require additional procedures or treatments to achieve their desired results. In general, however, most patients can expect their rhinoplasty surgery to take place within this time frame.
How Should I Prepare for Treatment?
If you’re considering nose surgery, it’s important to understand the preparation involved. First, be sure to choose a reputable surgeon. Mr Stephen Salerno has been in plastic surgery for decades and is committed to providing patients with as much information as they require so they can feel comfortable and confident in his hands. As well as a thorough initial consultation, Stephen offers patients a private Q&A so they can continue asking questions that he will answer in a timely manner.
Once you’ve decided to move forward with surgery, you’ll need to begin preparing for the procedure. This includes quitting smoking and avoiding certain medications that could increase bleeding during surgery. You’ll also need to arrange for someone to drive you home after the surgery and take care of you for the first few days as you recover. Be sure to follow all of your surgeon’s instructions prior to surgery. This will help ensure a smooth and successful procedure.
Is There a Long Recovery Period Needed Afterward?
There is usually a recovery period needed after this treatment, during which time the patient can enjoy taking some time off work or the general business of life and enjoy catching up on reading and television. During this time, patients will be required to stay away from strenuous exercise and other high-octane activities. Most people can return to work and their normal activities within a week or two, but it may take up to several months for the full results of the surgery to be apparent.
What Can I Do To Speed Up My Recovery?
There are a few things you can do to help your recovery go more smoothly and quickly. First, be sure to follow all of your surgeon’s instructions regarding post-operative care. This will include things like keeping your head elevated, using ice packs, and avoiding moving more than you have to. Additionally, try to eat healthy foods that are high in fibre and antioxidants, and stay hydrated. This will promote healing. Finally, get plenty of rest so that your body has time to recover.
How Long Will the Results Last?
The results from a nose job can last for many years. This is one of the key benefits of choosing a surgical solution over a minimally-invasive solution such as a liquid nose job; the results of the latter fade over time. The specific amount of time will depend on a number of individual factors, including the type of surgery that was performed and the aftercare regime followed. In general, however, patients can expect to enjoy their new noses for many years to come.
What Are the Benefits of This Treatment?
If you are unhappy with the way your nose looks, this treatment can give you the nose you have always wanted. It can change the size, shape, and even the angle of your nose. Maybe this is because your nose has always felt too big for your face, or you feel like it doesn’t match the rest of your features. Whatever the reason you’re unhappy, no one deserves to feel insecure in their bodies. This surgery can install patients with new confidence and help them love their face and appearance.
Medically speaking, a nose job can also improve your breathing if you have difficulty breathing. This may include people who whistle when they breathe through their nose or those who snore when they sleep. It can also correct birth defects and injuries to the nose, such as an injury or break sustained in an accident, or potentially an altercation that occurred in the womb or during birth. There’s a whole host of reasons as to why someone’s nose may be a unique shape, and every one is valid.
Who Is a Good Candidate for This Treatment?
Generally speaking, people who are good candidates for rhinoplasty are those who are dissatisfied with the shape or size of their noses. The most important factor is the overall health of the individual. It is also important that the individual has realistic expectations for the results of surgery. During your consultation, Mr Stephen Salerno will assess your individual case and determine whether or not you are a good candidate for surgery. He will also discuss the potential risks and benefits of the procedure with you.
There may be reasons why this surgery won’t be a good option for you, including medical conditions, some medications, and an aversion to anaesthesia. Your safety is of the utmost importance to us, so we’ll go over your medical history during your consultation to ensure you’re a healthy, suitable candidate. This treatment can be performed in conjunction with other surgeries for those looking to refresh their entire face. If you’re interested in undergoing multiple cosmetic surgeries, we can discuss this during your consultation.
What Are Some Other Cosmetic Surgeries Available?
Rhytidectomy, more commonly known as a facelift, is a surgical procedure that can improve the appearance of the face. This type of surgery can help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin. It can also help to improve the overall contour of the face. The surgeon will make incisions in inconspicuous areas of the face, such as along the hairline. They will then tighten the underlying muscles and remove excess skin. The incisions will be closed with stitches or clips and covered with bandages.
Eyelid surgery, also called blepharoplasty, is a type of cosmetic surgery that can improve the appearance of your eyes. It involves removing excess skin and fat from your upper and lower eyelids. This type of surgery can help to improve vision in people who have droopy eyelids that interfere with their field of view. It can also make you look younger and more rested by eliminating wrinkles and sagging skin around your eyes. For those who find that eyeballs make them look permanently tired, this treatment can be an excellent solution.
A neck lift is a surgical procedure that can improve the appearance of your neck. It can involve removing excess skin and fat, as well as tightening the muscles in your neck. Those struggling with jowls or a “turkey neck” may be interested in this kind of treatment, as a neck lift can diminish the appearance of these ailments and create a more sculpted, tighter-looking neck and jawline that looks more youthful.
