Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that is capable of improving both the form and the function of your nose. If you’re dissatisfied with the shape or size of your nose or if you’re looking to balance out the proportions of your face, this procedure could be right for you. Rhinoplasty is also an option for people who suffer from constricted breathing or sleeping troubles due to congenital or other structural defects.
Beyond personal preference or need, there are, however, some additional considerations that your provider will make when determining whether or not you’re an acceptable candidate for this procedure.
Good General Health
The foremost concern of your provider will be whether you’re in good general health. People with chronic and serious medical conditions should not assume the risk that invasive procedures like rhinoplasty entail, especially if they have not yet implemented strategies for successfully managing these illnesses.
If you have diabetes or hypertension, it may be necessary to make a few adjustments to your medication routine and to have your health tracked before scheduling your rhinoplasty procedure. Those with bleeding or clotting issues are not generally considered to be suitable candidates for this treatment.
Certain cosmetic procedures that you have had before may impact your candidacy for rhinoplasty. These include past nose jobs and revision surgeries in this area, facelifts and any other cosmetic treatments that have impacted the function, structure and integrity of the nose. It is important to discuss all cosmetic and other procedures that you have had in the past during your consultation appointment.
Feasible Expectations and a Positive Outlook
Much like any other surgical procedure, rhinoplasty entails a recovery period. Those who fare best in their recoveries tend to have positive outlooks and feasible expectations for their results. It is important to wait until all swelling and bruising have abated before forming any major and final opinions about the treatment results.
Rhinoplasty is currently the second most popular cosmetic surgery in the nation. It is vital to note, however, that once the shape and size of the nose have been altered, you may be advised to pursue additional treatments if these are necessary for restoring overall facial balance.
For instance, some people find that once the size of their noses has been reduced, other features appear too prominent or too small. Working with an experienced professional is the best way to establish a comprehensive treatment plan that will allow you to get a look you love.
