Am I a candidate?
While rhinoplasty in Miami comes with a few risks, it requires good physical and mental health to ensure a positive outcome. It’s also essential your lifestyle is compatible with the time it takes to recover from this procedure. For example, smokers or those with a history of bleeding may not be good candidates for nose surgery in Miami.
A nose job is not recommended for boys under 15 and girls under 13. It’s best to wait until the cartilage and skin area have mature to alter them surgically. You should also make sure you fully understand and accept the limitations associated with rhinoplasty and have realistic expectations about it. The goal is creating a nose that complements your face. Detailed instructions for pre-op and post-op care will be provided during your initial consultation.
About nose surgery
Nose surgery is an excellent option for those unhappy with the shape of their nose or those suffering from breathing problems. There are two main techniques available for performing rhinoplasty:
Open rhinoplasty – The incision is placed inside the nostrils at the base of the nose to allow the surgeon better access to the internal structures of the nose such as the bones and cartilage. The incisions are less visible after healing.
Closed rhinoplasty – Incisions are done inside the nose. While this approach is less invasive, and it leaves no visible scarring, it is more difficult to access the underlying bone and tissues.
Recovering from cosmetic nose surgery
After the procedure, nasal packing and bandaging are placed in the nostrils and splint, which remains in place for approximately one week. Swelling and bruising are natural, but it should subside within several weeks. Most patients go back to work in 10 days and resume regular activities in two to three weeks. It’s important to keep sun exposure and physical activity to a minimum during that time to minimize the risk of injury or damage. Your follow-up appointments are crucial to your recovery so that your surgeon can address any concerns you may have and adequately monitor your healing.
