Getting a modern nose job
Modern rhinoplasty is sometimes performed to fix injuries or congenital deformities, but is more often performed to make a functional but unattractive nose look better. The key to successful rhinoplasty and other forms of plastic surgery is that it looks completely natural. A successful nose job is one that no one can tell by looking that you had. So the best facial plastic surgeons discuss with their patients what sort of nose would look best on their face. They also have computers with imaging software that creates 3D models of the patient’s face so the patient can see what his or her nose should look like after the operation. Look for a surgeon certified by a board of surgery, with years of experience and a lot of before and after photographs of nose jobs. The Real Self website is a good place to look for customer testimonials about facial plastic surgeons.
For two weeks before the surgery, stop smoking and don’t take aspirin or ibuprofen. Make sure to get someone to drive you home from the surgery. Afterward, don’t blow your nose, don’t do anything strenous, and try to breathe through your mouth. There’ll be swelling and bruising, all of which will be gone in a few weeks.
