What do you need to know before the rhinoplasty procedure?

What exactly is rhinoplasty (also known as a "nose job" or "nose surgery")?

Rhinoplasty is a treatment performed to change the appearance of the nose. This treatment is sometimes known as a "nose job" or "nose surgery." Because the nose is such an important organ, people place a high value on its appearance. If there are flaws in the shape and structure of the nose, the aesthetic appearance may suffer, and breathing may become problematic. In this instance, nose job surgery is required for those who are concerned about rhinoplasty but are unable to routinely conduct breathing exercises.

Patients who are unhappy with the size, shape, or width of their nose may consider rhinoplasty (a nose job) if they have visible humps, broad or asymmetrical nostrils, or any of these disorders. Rhinoplasty can help patients with narrowed airways by repairing a deviated septum, which is a major cause of many breathing difficulties. A general anesthetic is routinely used during rhinoplasty. The operation can be done outpatient or inpatient if patients prefer to stay overnight.

How do you know if you need a nose job?

Cosmetic reasons

The bridge and tip of the nose are generally the regions that annoy people the most. Many people complain about having a hump at the bridge or dorsum. People who want to change the tip of their nose usually believe that it is too big, round, blobby, beaked, or lacks definition in this area. Some people think their noses are overly long.

Medical problems

Other people may require rhinoplasty or a nose job as a consequence of a nasal injury, such as a broken or bent nose after an accident. Others may have nasal airway-related functional breathing problems. Surgical operations in these cases would be classified as reconstructive, as opposed to the majority of nose surgeries, which are classified as cosmetic.

How do I prepare my body for rhinoplasty?

The following sections provide detailed solutions to the subject of what to do before nose surgery. If the advice given is followed, the nose job surgery, or rhinoplasty, will be more successful, and the recovery time will be more comfortable.

The patient should use caution while selecting a surgeon.

Rhinoplasty is a delicate procedure that requires careful planning and execution. Otherwise, revision rhinoplasty (nose correction) may be required. As a result, it is important to exercise caution while selecting the specialist who will conduct the nose surgery.

Medical background of the patient

The most crucial thing your doctor will ask you is why you want to have surgery and what your goals are. Your doctor will also inquire about your medical history, including any history of nasal blockage, surgeries, and drugs you are currently on. You may not be a candidate for rhinoplasty if you have a blood problem, such as hemophilia.

A physical examination

Your doctor, Dr. med. Simon Zimmerman, will perform a thorough physical examination as well as any necessary laboratory testing, such as blood tests. He will also look at your facial characteristics as well as the inside and outside of your nose.

The physical exam assists your doctor in determining what adjustments are required and how your physical characteristics, such as skin thickness or the strength of the cartilage at the tip of your nose, may impact your outcomes. The physical evaluation is also important for assessing how rhinoplasty will affect your breathing.

Nose photographs and 3D simulation

Your doctor's office will take images of your nose from various angles. Your surgeon may modify the photographs using computer software to show you what types of outcomes are conceivable. You will be able to see your new nose in real 3D simulation. Your doctor will make use of these images for long-term evaluations, reference during surgery, and before-and-after comparisons. Most significantly, the photographs allow for a focused discussion of the surgical objectives.

A discussion of your objectives

Discuss your motives and expectations with your doctor. He will clarify what rhinoplasty (a nose job) can and cannot accomplish for you, as well as the potential outcomes. It's natural to feel self-conscious when discussing your looks, but it's critical that you communicate openly with your surgeon about your preferences and goals for surgery.

If you have a tiny chin, your surgeon may discuss chin augmentation surgery with you. This is because a short chin gives the appearance of a bigger nose. In some cases, chin surgery is not essential, although it may help to balance the facial profile.

The use of some medications has been prohibited.

The use of some medications that represent a danger to the operation is discontinued on the day determined by the physician. (Generally, it may be sufficient to stop the drug use 14 days before the operation.) In the week preceding the surgery, avoid aspirin, anti-inflammatory medications (such as ibuprofen and aspirin), vitamin E supplements, and any other blood-thinning supplements. Make sure your doctor is aware of any blood-thinning medications you are taking. To lessen the risk of bruising, monitor your vitamin K levels. Consume plenty of green, leafy vegetables in the weeks leading up to your treatment to enhance your vitamin K levels.

Food should be avoided for a period of time before the rhinoplasty or nose job surgery.

The procedure will be carried out under general anesthesia. The fact that anesthetic patients' stomachs are full may cause stomach contents to rise during the operation and clog the airway. Food consumption should be stopped 8 hours before rhinoplasty surgery to avoid this risk. Foods and beverages that are known to produce gas and edema should be avoided. Gas-producing foods such as herbal teas, broccoli, milk, and beans should be avoided for a few days before nose job surgery. Mineral water, pickles, olives, and cheese, all of which can promote edema and are heavy in salt, should be avoided.

Smoking and drinking should be avoided.

Both smoking and alcohol consumption have several scientifically confirmed negative impacts. Because nicotine promotes blood vessel constriction, it limits the quantity of oxygen in the circulation and slows wound healing. Smoking and drinking lower immunity and increase illness. As a result, quitting smoking and drinking alcohol 15–30 days before the rhinoplasty surgery will improve the outcome.

It should be explained to the patient that the final picture of the nose will take some time.

It may take 6 months to a year after rhinoplasty to get the appearance that the patient desires. This information should be provided to the patient so that patients who expect to achieve the desired cosmetic look of the nose in a short period of time are not disappointed.

It may be beneficial for women to inform their doctor about their menstrual cycle.

During the menstrual cycle, women are more anxious and more susceptible to pain. Furthermore, hormonal changes during menstruation create water accumulation in the body, often known as edema. It may be necessary to communicate the dates of this period, when there is also considerable blood loss, with the physician in order to determine the most appropriate operation date.

During the procedure, the patient is provided with advice.

The patient is instructed to remove all jewelry and accessories before arriving at the hospital for the procedure. The patient is advised of the goods he will need and must carry with him while at the hospital.

If you're having outpatient rhinoplasty surgery, you'll need to arrange for someone to drive you home once it's scheduled.

Memory lapses, reduced response time, and poor judgment may occur in the first few days following anesthesia. So plan for a family member or friend to remain with you for a night or two to assist you with personal care responsibilities as you recuperate from nose job surgery.
