A nose job requires planning

Rhinoplasty in Charlotte, NC

Rhinoplasty – Charlotte, NC

Choose the right surgeon and plan ahead

Revision rhinoplasty — a nose job to fix the results of another nose job — is more complicated than regular rhinoplasty, just as expensive, and you have to wait at least a year before the original surgery to have it done. Best to choose a surgeon who’ll get it right the first time. You also need to do your part to prepare.

A month before having the surgery done, you should try to get a pair of prescription contacts, if you wear glasses. Give yourself a while to get used to them. You won’t want to be wearing glasses on your nose during the recovery period.

Two weeks before surgery, you should:

  • Stop taking aspirin, ibuprofen, vitamin E or herbal supplements.
  • Stop smoking.

At least one day before surgery, you should make sure there’ll be someone available to drive you home after the surgery.

After surgery, you should:

  • Don’t blow your nose. This will mean keeping a safe distance from other people and washing your hands often.
  • Stay out of the sun.
