Rhinoplasty, commonly known as the nose job, is one of the most popular types of cosmetic surgeries. In fact, only breast augmentation surgeries are more common that the nose job when it comes to the USA. Because of the high interest about it, this kind of surgery has become one of the safest and fastest to be done.

Who’s the ideal candidate?

The answer to this question is – anyone. If you feel your nose needs an operation due to ecstatic reasons, you are free to do rhinoplasty. Luckily for you, every clinic for cosmetic surgery includes this procedure in their offer. That means that if you look hard enough, you will be able to find great professionals whose services do not cost much.

Plastic surgeons usually recommend not doing the nose surgery until you reach 18-19 years, because until the end of puberty, the growth of the nose is not yet complete. When it comes to upper limit, if you have a good general health, nothing’s stopping you from doing this kind of surgery.

How is Nose Job Done?

Cosmetic nose surgery is performed under general anesthesia, which allows the surgeon to perform the surgery with greater comfort. During the nose job surgery, monitoring equipment needs to be used in order to monitor the patient’s heart rate, blood pressure and so on.

Recovery

After the nose surgery, in order to achieve an immobilization of the tissues, the surgeon will place a splint on the ridge of your nose. When the operation is completed, you will be transported into semi-intensive care unit, where you will be still monitored for a certain period of time. Usually, you can go home after a few hours, unless the surgeon or anesthesiologist says different.

Generally, the bruising around the face and eyes is only visible during the first five days after the nose job. You can use makeup to hide the bruises if necessary. On the other hand, swelling may last for longer than a month.

The goal of rhinoplasty is making the nose look more natural and to harmoniously fit in with your face. Because the healing process is rather long, you may need to wait for up to a year to see the final results of the nose job.  In most cases, the results of rhinoplasty are permanent, except for changes that are associated with the normal aging process.

Face lift or facial rejuvenation is in the domain of cosmetic surgery and involves lifting or tightening of the skin of the face and neck to the desired strength and shape. With age comes a change in the face and neck, which is a normal part of the aging process. Many surgeons believe that due to many factors (genetic, effects of sunlight) this problem comes sooner than expected. Good news that in the 21st century, face lift is a procedure that’s fairly easy to do.

The candidate

Although the surgery can be done even on the elder people, the most ideal patient is between 40 and 60 years of age. On top of that, it would be ideal if the person weighs normally and has good bone structure. When it comes to features of their face, it would be great if that person had firm and healthy skin, and thin neck.

If you fit the profile, you have nothing to worry about – almost any clinic in the world can help you with your problem. Those who don’t think they are ideal for the face lift surgery should not despair. The trick is simply to pick a better surgeon. You might need to pay more, but you will not get disappointed with the results.

How is Face Lift Performed?

Face lift (rhytidectomia) is aimed to tighten and lift the sagging facial tissues and remove wrinkles. Those who do the face lift can re-establish the pleasant contours of the face and neck, making them look and feel younger.

Face lift can be performed under general, but in most cases, the local anesthesia is used. In general, the incision is hidden in the scalp, in the natural contour of the ear, extends around the ear lobule, behind the ear lobes and ending at the back part of the neck. That assures that the scar can be tucked away easily.

Recovery

Once the surgery is done, the patient needs to spend a few more hours in the hospital so the medical team can monitor them in order to avoid any possibility of side effects. On the first postoperative day, the patient’s head movements should be reduced to a minimum. The head needs to be elevated at an angle about 30 degrees.

Hair care can start the second or third postoperative day. It is allowed to use a mild shampoo on the third day after surgery. The hair can be dried with a hair dryer at a moderate temperature, but you need to avoid the sun exposure at least one month after the surgery.

Here’s what you need to know about Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty, or as its better known by its street name, a nose job, is the no. 1 celebrity procedure. Prevalent mostly among female stars the ideal nose is small, straight and pointed slightly upwards. 106 degrees to be exact. Studies have shown that the desired “ideal nose” has a 106-degree tilt and is no wider than one fifth of the face. Scarlett Johansson is the reigning owner of the perfect nose. This is ironic since some of her earlier photos suggest she might have had some work done herself.

What can rhinoplasty do for you?

Rhinoplasty is a nose reshaping procedure that can alter the nose size, width, profile and the size and position of the nostrils. Some people get rhinoplasty for non-cosmetic reasons as well, like correcting breathing difficulties.

There’s two types of primary rhinoplasty, open and closed.  Open rhinoplasty is done for major nose reshaping where the incision is made along the soft tissue between the nostrils. During closed rhinoplasty incisions are made inside of the nostril. This produces much less swelling and scar tissue so it’s ideal for smaller corrections.

There’s a third type called filler rhinoplasty which is the opposite: instead of removing a bump, a surgeon uses an injectable filler to even out any depressions. Healing time for rhinoplasty is long; while major swelling and discomfort will disappear after 12 weeks, it can take up to a full year for all the swelling to disappear.

The procedure

It’s a relatively short procedure lasting up to three hours that will cost you about 5000 $. The patient, depending on the complexity of the procedure, will receive local or general anaesthesia. After making the appropriate incision the surgeon raises the soft tissue covering the nose thus exposing its structure. This enables him to reshape the nose to his liking. If necessary, the surgeon uses cartilage from the septum or the ear to craft the nose into desired shape. The nasal skin and tissue are then re-joined and the incision closed. A cast might be placed on the nose to ensure proper healing.

Is rhinoplasty for you?

If you’re thinking of getting a nose job it’s important you want it for the right reasons and that you’re realistic with your expectations. A surgeon won’t be able of giving you someone else’s nose; each nose has its own unique bone structure and characteristics. A surgeon can operate within those frames. Keep in mind that not every nose will look the same on each face. The most important thing is to make your nose match the unique characteristics of your face thus enhancing your features to the fullest.
