Before, During and After Rhinoplasty
Rhinoplasty is an aesthetic surgery which corrects the patient`s nose. Reasons may vary from patient`s vanity to real injury which prevents normal nasal function. Breathing through the nose might cause difficulties with exercising and sleeping. Most people experience this while they are ill. Could you remember, what is like to sleep without being able to breathe properly? Everyone deserves the right to access to oxygen. However, rhinoplasty in Singapore, like this in DreamPlasticSurgery is so popular because the human nose is one of the most obvious face parts. That`s why there are so many sayings about noses – keep your nose out of other people’s business, thumb your nose, keeps your nose to the grindstone, etc. It is more than expected if a patient changes his nose people to notice fast, especially, if the nose had some bumps or improper shape. Rhinoplasty is coping with all these things – it is the main reason why most people start to feel and look good. The main mission of rhinoplasty is not to create news for the talebearers but to create beauty and functionality. Aesthetic surgeons don`t just cut, they are not butchers – they evaluate the whole face symmetry and architecture.
What you have to know before a rhinoplasty?
In general, the surgery is not dangerous but there are a few points that people should pay attention to.
First, the patient should be fully developed because the nose is not completely developed if the patient is still a teenager. We are fully informed that usually teenagers hate their noses and make plans to change them but the medicine doesn`t allow it. In order to be a successful surgery, the patient should be at least 17 years old. This rule has an exception for kids who have a facial birth defect.
Second, the patient shouldn`t smoke, because smoking increases risks during the surgery. Smoking is dangerous and life threating so one surgery could be a good reason to stop it.
Third, the surgery has to be provided by an experienced aesthetic surgeon. It is not recommendable to trust people who don`t have enough qualification. Patients should always ask about different additional courses their surgeon has undergone, his previous patients and for his medical diploma and education.
Fourth, expectations should be discussed before the surgery, not after it. Some people might want impossible things or worse, things, which ruin their face symmetry. Some surgeons offer a detailed 3d visualization. This way patients feel more comfortable about the results.
There are different types of surgery. Not only methods are different but changes also might vary a lot. For example, a patient might need correction of the tip, decreasing nasal bump or changing the whole shape of the nose. Some surgeons who provide rhinoplasty in Singapore at Dream Plastic Surgery, apply the closed method, while others are fans of the open method. Both methods have their advantages and disadvantages.
What happens during the rhinoplasty?
During the surgery, patients are under anaesthesia. It is necessary because the surgeon should work undisturbed. Otherwise, mistakes might occur. In order, anaesthesia to work properly patient shouldn`t eat and drink before the procedure. After the surgeon reshapes the nasal bone, cartilage or the nasal septum he closes the incision and cleans the wound. The last step is wrapping the patient into the gauze. It is necessary because the healing process needs some support.
What happens after the rhinoplasty?
Although pain is bearable, some people need painkillers for a few days. Unfortunately, the pain vanishes faster than bruising and swelling. Sometimes, depending on the type of the surgery lower eye bags are swelled after the surgery. However, the nasal bone need support at least one week after the rhinoplasty in Singapore so the patient should wear splints. After the rhinoplasty, the patient shouldn`t wear glasses because they are heavy on the nose. It is recommendable to avoid pressure and exercises at least one month after the procedure.
