How the modern nose job is done

First, the surgeon examines your medical history to make sure there are no conditions like hemophilia that might make this a bad move. Then you discuss with him or her exactly how you want your nose to look. Computer imaging can help make this more precise. The surgeon will examine your nose to determine what can be done with it and how.

For the two weeks before surgery, stop smoking (it slows the healing process) and don’t take aspirin or ibuprofen. During the surgery itself, the surgeon will make his or her incisions on the inside of the nose or in the skin between the nostrils. You’ll be unconscious during the surgery, and will need someone to drive you home afterward.

After the rhinoplasty surgery, there will be swelling and bruising. The bruising fades within a week to ten days, but the swelling can last for several weeks. In the meantime, try to avoid intense exercise, and don’t blow your nose. Breathe through your mouth as much as you can. Don’t wear glasses on your nose for the first month afterward. If you need glasses, try cheek rests. Your doctor will have more advice for you.
