Many people are unsatisfied with the way their noses look, especially if the nose is not in proportion with the rest of the face.
Before opting for this type of the plastic surgery to change the look of the nose, it is important that the patient is in generally good health, emotionally stable and has realistic expectations of what the surgery can do for them and the way their nose looks.
It is also important to consult with a surgeon in detail regarding every aspect of the procedure. It is important to remember that the doctor cannot create a new nose for the person entirely, and that they must work with what is given to them as far as the internal and external structures of the nose are concerned.
As stated earlier, talking to a doctor in detail is necessary, because then the doctor will be able to tell the person if their expectations are reasonable and will be able to show the patient what kind of nose can be given to them.
It is also important to tell the doctor about all prior injuries to the nose and whether any surgeries have been performed on the nose already.
The average nose job’s cost will range in between $3,000 and $12,000. If a person wants to break down the costs, it is usually $3,000 for the surgeon, $700 for the anesthesiologist, and $800 worth of hospital and facility fees.
There are two major types of techniques when discussing plastic surgery of the nose, a closed rhinoplasty and an open rhinoplasty.
Closed rhinoplasty involves incisions that are confined to the inside of the new and the recover after this type of surgery is much faster. However, this type of procedure limits the surgeon’s ability to make changes to the nose, because they cannot see the inside parts of the nose while operating.
In an open rhinoplasty, a small incision is made across the columella, which is located between the nostrils, along with the incision on the inside of the nose. It is the preferred method in cases that are more complicated and for people that want a more extensive change in the look of their noses.
Open rhinoplasty is usually preferred by most surgeons because it gives them greater visibility while operation. However, the recovery will be much longer than is the case with closed rhinoplasty, because there will be a lot more bruising and swelling involved after the procedure.
It is best to first discuss with the surgeon what type of surgery is best for the individual.
