What Happens During A Nose Job? Explore The Process of Rhinoplasty.

Being unhappy with your appearance and, especially the appearance of your nose, is something a lot of us have to deal with. But developments in plastic surgery and a skilled surgeon like Dr. Siegel’s mean that this problem can be sorted.

The thought of having surgery of any sort, even a rhinoplasty to improve your appearance, can make us nervous but some information on the process can give a clearer idea of what happens.

A rhinoplasty like any other surgery is performed under anesthetic,  general or local, to make the surgery more comfortable for the patient. During the course of the operation the nostrils are cut and sometimes the base of the nose needs to be cut too. All of this is to allow the surgeon access to the bone structure and cartilage which he needs to manipulate. By doing this the surgeon can reshape the nose to get the shape the patient wants.

After the surgery the patient wears a nose splint for a number of days to help the nose reset in the correct position. Some surgeons will pack the nose cavity with gauze following the procedure, a practice not followed by Dr. Siegel because it leads to bruising and swelling and can slow down the healing process.

When you are thinking of having a nose job it is very important to find a surgeon who can give you the nose you want with as little discomfort as possible.You need a plastic surgeon whose skills in improving your appearance and commitment to your care can be trusted.
