Rhinoplasty Dallas

  1. Consider How Much Time You’re Going to Take off from Work, School, or Other Social Activities

With rhinoplasty surgery, Dallas patients are able to resume their normal work, school or social activities the day after their outpatient procedure. Still, some prefer to stay indoors while they heal. Consider how long you’d like to stay home to recover. Most people who stay home do so for about 2 weeks.

  1. Be Prepared for Some Post Surgery Bruising and Swelling

Whether you’re having a nasal hump removed or your nose narrowed, rhinoplasty surgery is going to cause bruising and swelling in Dallas patients. This is completely normal and to be expected. This is also why some people decide to take a few weeks off from work, school or social activities while they heal.

  1. Remember, you May Not See Your Final Results for Up to 12-15 Months

We know you want your new nose now, but that’s just not how rhinoplasty surgery works. Depending on the specific procedures you’re having performed, it may take as long as 12 to 15 months for you to see your final, post-op results.

  1. Abstain from Exercising for 3-4 Weeks

Whenever you have a surgery, you need to take it easy for a while to recover. This is even true with rhinoplasty surgery, which only addresses your nose. Don’t hit your favorite area gym for at least 3 to 4 weeks after your procedure.

  1. Be Prepared for Your Post Rhinoplasty Surgery Look

Most Dallas patients report they aren’t in a significant amount of pain after their rhinoplasty surgery. However, it is normal to feel some stiffness, bruising and swelling the first few days after your surgery. Some patients, depending on the exact techniques performed, will also have internal nasal splints.

  1. Keep in Mind Some Discomfort is Normal After Rhinoplasty Surgery

No surgery is ever 100% comfortable. The same goes for rhinoplasty surgery. You can expect some minor discomfort after your elective plastic surgery procedure, including swelling and bruising around the face and eyes. Some patients will also experience slight bleeding from their nostrils. All of these side effects are completely normal and to be expected.

  1. Make Sure to Keep Your Post-Op Visits

It’s never a good idea to skip out on a post-op visit, especially not your first one where stitches might be removed. Keep all your post-op visits, and if you have to reschedule at the last minute, do so for as soon as possible.

  1. Your New Nose My Not Look “Normal” At First

Remember, it’s going to take a while for your new nose to appear. While most patients experience a significant reduction in swelling within the first 4-6 weeks after surgery, it may take up to 15 months to see your final results.

  1. Remember, Dr. Bassichis Performs Several Rhinoplasty Surgeries on Many Patients Every Year

Rhinoplasty DallasAll plastic surgeons, especially Dallas facial plastic surgeon Dr. Bassichis, will tell you that no two rhinoplasty surgeries are the same. Everyone who desires a nose job has a different type of natural nose, and different problem area they would like to address. That’s why the surgery is so unique! Here are three of the most common reasons why you may consider getting a nose job.

  1. You Want to Remove a Nasal Hump

Many Dallas residents with a nasal hump on their nose find this natural facial features unattractive. Whether they dislike the way they look head-on or are unhappy with their facial profile, they just want this nasal hump gone for good. Rhinoplasty can help.

To remove an unwanted nasal hump, Dr. Bassichis gently shaves the nasal hump down. After that, he performs a procedure called lateral osteotomy, which is the medical term for breaking your nose. While this may sound like a harsh technique, it is needed when removing a nasal hump so that the nasal bone can narrow, as well as close the open roof that is usually created when a nasal hump is shaved down.

  1. You Have a Naturally Short Nose

Some Dallas residents choose rhinoplasty because they feel their noses are too short for their face. It’s actually a very common reason that patients come to Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center for a nose job. Depending on your unique situation, Dr. Bassichis can perform one of the following techniques to elongate your nose:

  • Radix Grafting

The radix is the upper part of the nose. Depending on your natural nose shape, Dr. Bassichis may choose radix grafting to add more cartilage at the top of your nose, allowing it to “start” higher up your face, giving you the longer nose shape you desire.

  • Caudal Septal Extension Grafting

Sometimes, patients’ noses only look short because their nasal tips are upturned. In this case, Dr. Bassichis can add cartilage to the tip of your nose, making your nose look longer.

  • Extended Spreader Grafts

Sometimes the space between the septum and lateral cartilage need to be extended. If this is the case for you, Dr. Bassichis will use extended spreader grafts, which are harvested pieces of cartilage, to make your nose longer.

  1. You Have a Breathing Issue and Desire Functional Rhinoplasty

Some Dallas residents come to Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center desiring rhinoplasty, not for a cosmetic reason, but a functional reason. This is common amongst patients who have difficulty breathing. Reasons for functional rhinoplasty include:

  • Chronic nasal congestion that isn’t resolved with medications
  • Breathing through the mouth constantly, especially at night
  • Frequently having dry mouth
  • A noticeably reduced sense of smell
  • Frequent, unexplained nosebleeds
  • Repeated sinus infections or headaches with no known medical cause
  • Eustachian tube dysfunction
  • Insomnia

These examples are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to why patients choose to have rhinoplasty. Whether you don’t like the aesthetic look of your nose or think you have a functional issue that could be resolved surgically, Dr. Bassichis would love to consult with you.
