As always with cosmetic surgery, do your research on what the work can do for you. It is essential that you don’t move forward with unrealistic expectations about what the operation will achieve. Patients will be under anesthesia for the entirety of the surgery. Incisions can either be made on the inside or outside of the nose depending on what is necessary for that particular surgery.
Tissues are then raised in order to reshape the nose. If extra tissue is needed, it is often taken from the septum. Once the incisions are closed, splints and tubes are utilized in order to stabilize the structure of the nose as it heals. These remain in place for approximately one week.
It may be a year before the nose returns to normal function, as swelling may still occur months after surgery. After a year, swelling should go down for good, revealing the full results.
