Rhinoplasty, also referred to as nose surgery, is a surgical procedure that can shorten or lengthen your nose, change its shape or contour, narrow the nostrils, or lift and define the tip. You can find highly qualified plastic surgeons at Renew Skin and Health Clinic who can offer you exquisite nose jobs ensuring excellent cosmetic results. The procedure is done either using a general or a local anesthetic. The nose reshaping surgery consists in the surgeon making incisions that allow access to the bones and cartilage supporting the nose, incisions which are generally made on the inside, thus making them invisible after the nose reshaping surgery.
The recovery time for this procedure may vary from person to person. After the nose reshaping surgery your face will most likely feel puffy and for several days, your nose and eyes will be bruised and swollen. In order to reduce the pain and swelling, Renew Skin and Health Clinicís plastic surgeons recommend applying a cold compress or ice (frozen peas) on the face during the first 24 hours. Within two days from the nose reshaping surgery the surgical packing in the nose will be removed. Once your nasal splint has been removed (generally after a week) there is not much aftercare. It may take up to 10 to 14 days before you can perform strenuous activities.
