1. When can I get a Rhinoplasty done?
A Rhinoplasty, or a nose job, is done when you are unhappy with the cosmetic appearance of the nose, and dislike its overall shape, size and projection. The surgery can also help those who suffer from breathing problems and blocked nasal passageways.
Dr. Sreekar performs rhinoplasty to balance and refine the nasal bridge, tip, and nostrils, and create a nose that is more proportionate to the other facial features.
Rhinoplasty can help to, improve the nasal shape, size, and angle, correct the drooping or bulbous nasal tip, reduce a nasal hump, refine the shape of nostrils, improve breathing, repair injuries to the nose, and Enhance self-confidence
2. Why is rhinoplasty not covered under insurance?
Insurance companies do not typically cover cosmetic procedures. If you require rhinoplasty to correct not only cosmetic flaws but also a deviated septum or fix other structural problems that interfere with breathing, then insurance may cover part of the costs. We can help you to fill out the necessary paperwork. We can also provide financing options from trusted healthcare lenders with Xero EMI repayment rates. Just call 7022543542!
3. How is the recovery after a Rhinoplasty in Bangalore?
The rhinoplasty recovery phase is quite a manageable and easy process. The surgery is performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia, so you will need someone to drive you home and stay with you for a day or so. You will wear a splint on your nose for about 3-7 days, which helps to protect its new shape as it heals. Discomfort after your treatment can be well controlled with pain medications prescribed by Dr. Sreekar. You should make sure to keep your head elevated for the first few days to minimize postoperative swelling. Clients typically return to work about a week after their treatment, provided they don’t have a physically strenuous job. Intense exercise should be avoided for at least 3 weeks after your surgery, or as Dr. Sreekar instructs. Your swelling will gradually lessen as the weeks and months pass, and you will be able to finally see and enjoy your gorgeous new nose.
4. Can other cosmetic procedures be combined with a Rhinoplasty?
Dr. Sreekar can easily combine your nose job with a buccal fat removal, chin liposuction, facelift, brow lift or blepharoplasty to help roll back the clock on aging, or he can perform a non-surgical procedure using dermal fillers or injectables to painlessly improve your complexion. Fat grafting is sometimes performed in tandem with facial surgery to help provide a more natural, organic looking outcome. It is common for patients undergoing chin augmentation to also undergo rhinoplasty at the same time in order to balance the profile and ensure a pleasing facial structure. Dr. Sreekar is excited to create a personalized action plan for your surgery.
5. How painful is a rhinoplasty?
After the procedure is done, most patients will leave with a cast over their nose. This cast will remain on the nose for a week after nose surgery. Once the cast is removed, most patients have moderate swelling of the nose. By the second week, most patients report that the swelling has gone down, but it typically takes a full month for the swelling to go down enough for patients to get an idea of how their new nose will appear. Rarely some of the swelling does not fully resolve itself until up to a year after nose surgery.
9. How many days should I take off work?
Patients who do not mind being seen with bruising or swelling on their face take a week off work. If you work in a job that requires you to perform more than light seated activity, you should take off up to two weeks of work. Patients who wish to keep the surgery a secret should take between 7 and 10 days off work.
10. When can I start my exercises after rhinoplasty?
Patients can return to their regular exercise routine three weeks after the procedure.
11. What happens after rhinoplasty surgery?
At the conclusion of the procedure, a long-acting numbing agent is used to ensure the patient leaves the surgery center pain-free. A splint is usually placed on the nose for one week. The nose will be noticeably swollen for several days and should not be blown. Half of all rhinoplasty patients have some bruising.
12. What are the risks and limitations of rhinoplasty?
The biggest limitation with rhinoplasty is thick skin, as this is difficult to shrink and conform to the underlying framework of the nasal structure. A surgeon can only do so much with a large nose if the skin will not contract. Risks of rhinoplasty include infection, postoperative nose bleeds, numbness, swelling, the possible collapse of the nose, external scarring, fullness, residual deformity, and holes inside the septal area of the nose.
