Some commonly asked questions encountered by rhinoplasty surgeons in Sydney

What precautions should I take following a nose job operation?

Patients need to be careful not to disturb the site of the operation throughout the recovery and rest in an elevated head position. Some swelling and bruising is normal and patients might even find it difficult to breathe during the first few days due to the swelling. All these should subside within 3 weeks after the procedure. Avoid wearing glasses or doing anything that might irritate the nasal area.

What do you mean by “closed” and “open” rhinoplasty and what is the difference between the two?

The term closed and open rhinoplasty basically refers to the manner in which the necessary incisions for the operation. In an open rhinoplasty in Sydney, incisions are made in the nostrils in order to reveal the nasal structure and perform the desired improvements.

It is the preferred method for most plastic surgeons and can take anywhere from 1 to 3 hours to complete depending on the complexity of the procedure. Open rhinoplasty is ideal for patients that desire reshaping the tip of their nose and other minor alterations such as lateral deviations of the nasal structure.

Closed rhinoplasty certainly differs from that of an open rhinoplasty operation and is considerably more complicated than the latter. Incisions are made deep within the nostrils to lift the internal structure of the nose. Such a procedure is generally carried out to improve the septum which is otherwise unreachable with open rhinoplasty

What are the possible complications?

As a surgical procedure performed under general anaesthesia, rhinoplasty in Sydney does have it risks but are fairly minimal especially when performed by a highly qualified and reputable cosmetic surgeon.

Of course the possibility of post-operative complications like infections, excessive scarring and bleeding are always present but is considerably rare and practically non-existent for patients who opt for some of the best rhinoplasty surgeons in business and follow all instructions given for post-operative care. Some bruising and swelling is to be expected during the recovery process but it’s no reason to be overly concerned as they are both normal stages of the recovery process.

Rhinoplasty is indeed an effective and fairly safe corrective operation for anyone struggling with any physical imperfections that they might have about their nose.

Just as it is with any other surgical procedure, rhinoplasty in Sydney is not without its risks but as long as you opt for the expertise of an accomplished rhinoplasty surgeon and follow all instructions given, patients can be certain about getting the desired results!
