Have you been considering a ‘nose job’ but not too sure about it? If so then don’t worry, I was in your shoes this time last year and now I look in the mirror each morning with a smile, very happy with the decision that I made. I as fortunate enough to find the wonderful Dr. Adam Stein Raleigh, NC surgeon who works out of Stein Plastic Surgery. I found the surgeon through an online search and after reading the 5 star reviews and positive ratings, it was really a no brainer. I had a flurry of questions to ask Dr. Adam Stein before the op, and I wanted to share with you the answers which he gave, in the hope that they answer some of your burning questions.
What is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is what we refer to as a nose correction or a nose job, it is a very simple operation that can transform the nose in a number of ways. Through ra rhinoplasty procedure you can make your nose bigger, smaller, straighter or more curved, whatever it is that you want to have done.
Does The Operation Hurt?
The answer to this is a simple no and that is because you will be placed under general anesthetic during the operation. If for any reason you have a health complaint which means that you cannot be placed under general anesthetic, you will instead be heavily sedated, and still feel nothing.
How Long Does It Take?
Generally speaking the operation takes between 1 and 2 hours, the only factors that will increase or decrease the amount of time depend on what exactly you are having done.
Is It Permanent?
Yes, whatever changes the doctor makes to your nose will be permanent although it can always be changed again with further rhinoplasty. A second operation however is very rare and most patients are very happy with the first procedure and the results which they have.
How Long to Recover?
Complete recovery from rhinoplasty will take around 4 weeks but obviously this can change from patient to patient. The first week will be the toughest and then gradually the nose will heal and you will be able to see your results in all of their glory.
Is Recovery Painful?
Most patients do feel quite a significant amount of pain in the first week, this is because the nose will be swollen and there may be some bruising starting to appear. In some cases patients will experience nausea and headaches, there is also the possibility that you will have some very light nose bleeds, but these cases are quite rare. The first week will be the most challenging and then as the weeks go by and the nose heals, the swelling will be greatly reduced and the bruises will begin to disappear.
