Nose Job – Rhinoplasty Surgery Gold Coast & Brisbane
The overall goal of a nose job is to adjust your nose so that it complements your other facial features. The youngest recommended age for a nose job is the middle teens because that the age when the nose is close to being fully developed. There is no age limit to having your nose adjusted if the patient is healthy.
Reshaping the nose is done through incisions on the inside of the nose. In some cases, there may also be one incision on the bottom of the nose between the nostrils. The scars gradually fade and eventually should be unnoticeable.
How does it work?
Noses can be built up or reduced by modifying its supporting structures by removing or adding bone cartilage. Your soft tissues and skin will take their new shape at this stage.
Patients with breathing issues due to inconsistencies in the inside area of the nose can have modifications done by improving the nasal airway. Dr. Scamp will operate with another specialist surgeon if necessary.
Post- surgery, some swelling, bruising and discomfort, swelling is expected. Patients will need to wear a splint over their nose for one week. Patients can start wearing makeup as soon as the splint is removed to help hide any bruising. Your routine will be restricted for the first couple of days, but it will be two to three weeks before you can start lifting, bending or participating in strenuous activity. If your job doesn’t involve in activities that cause elevated blood pressure, you should be able to go back to work around ten days post-surgery. Slight swelling around the nose area can last for up to a year, but it won’t be very visible to others.
The end results of a nose job are permanent and worth the wait, but if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to call us at our Gold Coast clinic.
