Rhinoplasty – Charlotte, NC

Preparing for rhinoplasty

To make sure you get the best nose job available, there are two things you need to do first:

  • Find a surgeon with a state-of-the-art suite for operations, including computer imaging software that can show you your face after a nose job.
  • Make sure the surgeon knows what you want, but be prepared to follow his or her advice. The nose you want might not be right for your face, and you might even need a chin implant instead.

Here are steps you can take to prepare for surgery:

  • Two weeks before the nose job, stop taking aspirin, ibuprofen, vitamin E or herbal supplements.
  • The day before surgery, eat less salt.

Recovering from rhinoplasty

The most common aftereffects of a nose job are swelling and bruising in the nose. The bruising will fade within a week to ten days, but the swelling lasts longer. For best results:

  • Breathe through your mouth as much as possible.
  • Don’t do anything that’s likely to raise the blood pressure in your head. For the same reason, try not to bend over.
  • Ask your surgeon if lymphatic drainage massage would be a good idea.
