What to Consider Before Having Nose Surgery

Many people consider rhinoplasty to be one of them most effective forms of nose surgery, particularly for those that have crooked noses. Having a crooked nose can often be unsightly, though Owen Wilson seems to wear it nicely. If your nose is crooked and you don’t know what to do, you may want to look into this form of surgery in order to correct it. However, before you make the decision to go ahead with the surgery, it is essential that you know as much as possible about rhinoplasty and all that it entails.

There are a few prerequisites to take into account when considering getting nose surgery of this type, and you will find that your age, height, skin type, and even your ethnicity will have a lot to do with the outcome of your surgery. The patient undergoing the surgery must be at least 16 years old, unless the crooked nose is causing serious impairment to the person’s breathing. You may find that additional cosmetic surgeries may be required in order to ensure that your new nose complements your face, as the altered size or shape of the nose may throw off the symmetry of your face.

Make sure that you find an expert that is qualified to do all of the facial cosmetic surgeries, as rhinoplasty is a surgery that can have serious repercussions if it is not done right. You may find that your nose is too thin or too long if the nose surgery is botched, so you should spend plenty of time looking for a plastic surgeon that knows as much as possible about his practice. The doctor will usually snap photographs of your nose, and will usually take the time to explain to you what the results of your surgery will be. He will explain how the cartilage will be reshaped, how the airways will be left clear and free, and how your nose will look once the surgery is completed.

Your surgeon will also likely explain to you about the anesthesia that will be applied during the surgery, as that will help you to prevent any problems. Many people are allergic to anesthesia, so using it during a rhinoplasty will often lead to complications. By taking the time to explain it to you, the doctor will be doing his part to prevent problems during the nose surgery.

Rhinoplasty is literally the reshaping of the nose. It doesn’t matter if your nose is crooked, straight, long, short, snub, hooked, Roman, or hawkish; the nose surgery will help to make your proboscis the shape that you want it to be. The cartilage of the nose will be cut into, along with the bone. Most of the incisions will actually be made inside your nostril, as that way they will not leave unsightly scars on the outside of your nose.
