Risks of Rhinoplasty Surgery

Aug 8, 2008
The most recognizable feature on many peoples face is their nose. If you have a nose you like that's great, but many people were born with noses they wish they could change. This is easily fixed through rhinoplasty surgery. It doesn't matter if you want to make your nose smaller or bigger, an Irvine rhinoplasty specialist can help you.

When considering rhinoplasty surgery the first thing to decide is just how you would like your nose to look. With this information the cosmetic surgeon has a starting place from which to work. Many people will search for a photo of some famous person whose nose they like and will bring this with them to their first consultation.

Once you and the surgeon have an idea about how you'd like your nose to look you should discuss the rhinoplasty procedure with the cosmetic surgeon. There are both open rhinoplasty procedures and closed rhinoplasty procedures; the differences is if the surgeon needs to open your nasal passageway during the procedure. In many cases you'll get the best looking results from the open procedure though there is a small chance of scarring and the recovery takes longer than with a closed procedure.

In the open procedure the cosmetic surgeon will have better access to the tissue and cartilidge of your nose so he or she can do a better job reshaping your nose. The closed procedure is usually fine for smaller adjustments and it does have the benefit of faster recovery. The closed procedure is often more expensive as well since it will take longer as the surgeon is working in the small spaces. You're the only person who can decide which procedure is better for you. Your rhinoplasty doctor should be able to help you make the decision on which procedure is better suited to you.

While the outside of the nose may look simple, the nasal passageways inside are fairly complex. This complexity does mean there are some risks of complication following rhinoplasty, but typically they are minor. Common side effects include swelling and bleeding which typically goes away within a few days to one week. You cannot simply pinch your nose to stop the nose bleeds, but your cosmetic surgeon will be able to give you other ways to combat nose bleeds after rhinoplasty.

Rhinoplasty is consider an elective surgery and is not covered by most insurance plans. This means you will need to pay for the rhinoplasty yourself in most cases. If you can prove that your rhinoplasty is being done to correct a medical problem though you may be able to get insurance to cover some of the costs. Another popular option is to have your Irvine rhinoplasty financed. Many cosmetic surgeons are now offering a financing option making it even easier to pay for your rhinoplasty.

Cost shouldn't be the main deciding factor on who to use for your rhinoplasty. Youu need to be comfortable with and have confidence in your Irvine cosmetic surgeon. It may take time to find the right cosmetic surgeon for you, but it's definitely worth it to look around.
