Your Top Four Rhinoplasty Related Questions Answered

Cosmetic surgery can result in irreversible changes in your appearance. Rhinoplasty, a less invasive surgical procedure which is also dubbed as nose-job, can surely change certain features of your nose. However, while going for rhinoplasty, you should take into consideration the fact that it is next to impossible to take your nose back to its earlier state. Should you go for rhinoplasty? Here are your top 4 questions/concerns answered.


Which feature of your nose makes you look ugly?

It goes without saying that you need to know what particular feature of your nose you would like to change. Even if you are clueless about which part of your nose should be altered or reshaped, you may consult a considerably experienced cosmetic surgeon to find the unusual or unpleasant feature out. It may be the size or shape or overall structure of your nose which you want to change for the better. It’s always advisable to seek expert advice before you finally make up your mind for undergoing surgery.


Do you have realistic expectations?

There are many people who have this wrong preconception that plastic surgeons carry magic wands with them. Rhinoplasty, for a matter of fact, is one of the oldest and most complicated surgical procedures. You should know the expected outcome of the surgery before you go for it. Keep in mind that every cosmetic surgery comes along with one or two side effects, which subside with time.


How much time do you need for recovery?

This is indeed a very important question you should ask a cosmetic surgeon before you go for a Rhinoplasty. You will definitely not want to book an appointment with the surgeon one week before a vacation or important meeting. It’s good to bear in mind that you will need some time to recover from the bruises and cuts. Post-surgical care and supervision are also required for fast recovery. You ought to ask your surgeon how much time you need for recovery and plan things accordingly.


Are you ready to look different?

What many people forget before going for Rhinoplasty is that they would look very different after the surgery. It is important to consider how your friends and family will react to the changes and whether you will be socially acceptable or not.

Reshaping the nose might sound a great thing to try. But you should always consider the fact that cosmetic surgery has irremediable impacts.
