by | Apr 14, 2014 | Health

If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your nose, you should talk to a qualified plastic surgeon about Rhinoplasty in Oakbrook. This is a common cosmetic procedure that many patients choose to have done to reshape the nose and also to alleviate breathing problems. Below are some frequently asked questions about a rhinoplasty procedure.

Q.) How does the cosmetic surgeon reshape my nose?

A.) During the procedure, a plastic surgeon will make incisions inside of your nose and possibly on the outside of your nose too. If any incisions are made on the outside, they will be very minuscule and unnoticeable. Through the incisions, the surgeon will reshape the cartilage in your nose and the skin will naturally adjust to the new shape of your nose.

Q.) What can I expect after my rhinoplasty surgery?

A.) For about one week, your nose will be covered up with a bandage and after your surgeon removes the bandage your nose will be swollen for at least one month afterwards. Right after the surgery, you’ll most likely have bruising around your eyes. You’ll probably be able to return to work and daily activities after the surgeon removes your bandages.

Q.) Will I have to stay in the hospital overnight after my surgery?

A.) Rhinoplasty in Oakbrook is an outpatient procedure, so after the anesthesia wears off after your surgery, you’ll be able to return home the same day. Someone must accompany you when you have the surgery to drive you home afterwards. It’s also a good idea to have an adult stay with you at least 24 hours after you have your procedure done.

Q.) I have problems with my sinuses which makes it hard for me to breathe. Can a cosmetic surgery procedure help me breathe easier?

A.) You most likely have an inflamed sinus lining which can make breathing difficult. The surgeon can take out the inflamed sinus lining and open your nasal passages to make breathing easier for you.
