There are some things that you should know before going and getting rhinoplasty surgery, also known as a nose job. The first thing is to plan to take time off. You need at least 7-10 days off in order for your body to heal from the rhinoplasty surgery. Your nose will be altered by the procedure and now it is in repair mode. Plan on spending 7-10 days off, but plan for 14 days just in case an incident happens.
Bruising and Swelling
Different people will have different bruising and swelling, all depending upon how their nose was altered. In a typical rhinoplasty surgery, most swelling and bruising will clear up within 7-10 days. Dr. Parker always recommends to plan extra days as needed for healing. The final result of the nose job should show up in 12-15 months. What does this mean? Well, it means that you shouldn’t be worried if your nose doesn’t look as good as you want it to just after a month. Chico rhinoplasty by Dr. Parker should heal quickly. The tip of the nose is most effected by the long healing time, however, all of this is normal.
It is important that you don’t exercise for 3-4 weeks. Now, this may drive some of you healthy people up the wall, but rest assured, the more care you take in healing now the better the overall surgery will look in the long run. Exercising will increase your heart rate, which may in turn cause more bruising and bleeding. We recommend 5 weeks without exercise, but 3-4 weeks should be fine for most people.
How Will I look After Surgery?
Pain is definitely the factor that most people worry about. Fortunately if you are getting Dr. Parker’s special Chico rhinoplasty, you should not have a significant amount of pain. There will be stuffiness and bruising for the first few days, but after that everything should feel close to normal. It is normal to be congested and have your face and eyes a little swollen for the first several days after surgery. Don’t worry, this is completely normal.
Will It Take A Long Time For My Nose To Look Normal?
Once the splints are removed, you should look much better. However, it may take up to a year for the final result of the surgery to show up. Dr. Parker believes that males take up to 15 months to start seeing the final results.
How To Pick The Right Surgeon
When choosing a surgeon to do a rhinoplasty surgery, you have to remember a few things. Since a nose job procedure is so precise and difficult, you must choose a surgeon that has experience and expertise. Being comfortable going into surgery is a major factor before you decide to get a nose job. Anyone looking to get a chico rhinoplasty surgery should find a doctor that would be open to pre-operative and post-operative visits. If ever a problem should arise, you should be able to trust your surgeon.
Keep Your Facial Shape In Mind
Some of us may want to have a nose such as Paris Hilton. However, you should always make sure your face shape aligns with the rhinoplasty procedure that you are interested in. Luckily, many nose jobs have been performed, so there are many examples out there to look at.
