Nose Job and Reconstruction Surgery in the Gold Coast
The goal of rhinoplasty is to reshape your nose so that it complements your other facial features. The earliest recommended age for Rhinoplasty is the mid-teens when the nose is near full development. As long as you are in good health, there is no upper age limit for nose reshaping.
Reshaping, generally, is done through incisions inside your nose. In some instances, there may also be an incision on the underside of your nose between your nostrils. The resulting scars fade and ultimately should be barely visible.
How does rhinoplasty work?
Your nose can be reduced, or built up, by adjusting its supporting structures. This is done either by removing or adding bone cartilage. Your skin and soft tissues will assume their new shape over this ‘scaffolding’.
If you have breathing problems because of irregularity in the internal structures of your nose, adjustments can be made to improve your nasal airway. This can be done at the same time as alterations to the external appearance of your nose. Dr Scamp will operate with another specialist (ENT) surgeon if required.
After surgery, some discomfort, swelling and bruising can be expected. You will need to wear a nasal splint for a week. You can begin wearing cosmetics as soon as it is removed. Your routine will be severely restricted for only a day or two, but it will be a few weeks before you can resume bending, lifting and exercise. As long as your job does not involve activities that raise your blood pressure, you should be able to return to work within 10 days. Minor swelling of your nose may persist for up to a year, but most likely this will not be noticeable to others. The final results of rhinoplasty are permanent and well worth the wait.
