Rhinoplasty surgery takes place in the hospital and is performed when you are asleep. It can be a day case procedure, or with an overnight stay. There are broadly two ways of approaching the nose - either "closed" (with scars kept inside the nose) or "open" (with an additional scar on the skin between the nostrils). The best technique for you will be ascertained after careful clinical examination and listening to your goals.
Rhinoplasty surgery is complex three dimensional reconstruction of the nasal skeleton, which is composed of both bone and cartilage. Once reshaped, the skin on the outside conforms to the new shape of your nose.
In order to recover as quickly as possible, and to get the swelling to settle quickly, it is best to remain upright as much as possible. Don't bend down to pick things up or do up shoe laces (rather squat, keeping your head up). For sleeping, use 2 or 3 pillows on your bed.
Do not blow your nose for 3-4 weeks after surgery, and instead use regular saline spray washes to keep your nose clean. Most people can return to light activity after two weeks, but you should avoid heavy activity and crowded situations for 4-6 weeks after surgery
Rhinoplasty surgery is associated with a variety of risks and complications. Some are outlined below:
