A nose job is a pretty sought after form of plastic surgery. The technical term for a "nose job" is rhinoplasty, and today I'm sharing some things that you should know about having a rhinoplasty procedure before you get started. This is a sponsored post, though all opinions are my own.
Why do people get a rhinoplasty procedure?
Sure, one of the most popular reasons that a person seeks plastic surgery of any form is for appearance reasons. Rhinoplasty is no different in that aspect, as numerous people seek out changes to the appearance of their nose. Perhaps their nose is too wide or thin for their liking, or one might have a long narrow or bumpy nose. It's no wonder that nose reshaping is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in the US.
However, nose jobs are not always sought after for vanity reasons. Rhinoplasty is often performed on people after an injury, to repair damage caused to the nose. Breathing problems are another top reason that one may seek a rhinoplasty procedure from a plastic surgeon.
There are a number of things to consider, and to know before deciding if any type of plastic surgery is right for you. I have answered a few common questions below, to help to aide you in making a decision that is right for you.
How long does nose job surgery take?
Simple rhinoplasty can take around 75 minutes. This time frame is for surgeries involving re-narrowing or bump removal. A simple open nose procedure can take around two hours, while more complicated revision rhinoplasty will take two and a half hours or more.
Is a nose job painful?
Any surgery can be painful, and nose jobs are no exception to this rule. You may have some pain in your nose, and a headache. You will experience swelling for about 3-4 weeks after getting a nose job. You may also experience a stuffy nose, as well as trouble breathing for a short time after surgery.
What is rhinoplasty recovery time?
While the exact recovery time frame will depend on the type of procedure that you have, you can typically expect to be down for about 1-2 weeks after surgery. Here are 13 tips that Dr. Farrior has shared to speed up your rhinoplasty recovery time, if you are worried about being down for the count for too long.
How much is an average nose job?
Nose jobs are not a cheap procedure, and in fact, are quite expensive. The average cost of a nose job in 2018 was over $5,000, though that cost does not include expenses for anesthesia or operating room facilities. If you are getting a nose job just for appearance purposes, this cost could play a big part in your decision of whether or not to get surgery.
I do hope that this information has helped you to make the decision of whether or not this is right for you. I am one to do a lot of research before I make big decisions, so I wanted to be able to provide you with answers to some of the major questions that you might have.
