Rhinoplasty – also known as a Nose job or Nose Reshaping – is a procedure that should not be taken lightly. Because the nose is located on the centre of your face, any alterations will make the biggest difference in your appearance. For this reason, finding the right rhinoplasty surgeon Dubai is key to having a successful rhinoplasty in Dubai, that complements your facial features well but also maintains natural results. For any form of cosmetic surgery – also let it be rhinoplasty – knowledge is power.
Before going into the 8 most important things you should know before you make a decision to do a rhinoplasty, it is essential to stress on the idea that doing a nose job or rhinoplasty should be a decision that you are making for yourself and not because you are pressured by society beauty standards. In this manner, your rhinoplasty journey and experience will be stress-free and pleasant, as ultimately you are investing in a better version of yourself that will reflect on all aspects of your life.
So, without further or due, here are the 8 things to know before you do a nose job as advised by Dr Bashar Bizrah, the best rhinoplasty surgeon in Dubai and his team of expert medical professionals at Bizrahmed.
- Before you book your rhinoplasty, do your initial research
When choosing your doctor and considering rhinoplasty in Dubai, you need to be realistic and set transparent and clear expectations for your surgeon and yourself. Doing a thorough analysis of the before and after pictures of past procedures of your surgeon, you will be able to get a better understanding on what kind of noses and shapes the surgeons works with and if the results are close to what you want to achieve. In addition, you should do your due diligence in researching the best nose surgeon and making sure they have the right qualifications and expertise to conduct your surgery.
- Patience is key when it comes to rhinoplasty results
Results take time with rhinoplasty or nose job and your nose will not be fully healed until a year after your procedure. During this year, your nose will change dramatically, as swelling slowly resides. After the initial 12 months, you might want to consider a revision rhinoplasty if you are unhappy with the results. However, this is only the case in about 25%-30% of cases.
- Rhinoplasty comes in two different forms
Yes, you read that right. Rhinoplasty can be done in two different ways, closed rhinoplasty, and open rhinoplasty. They are both considered relatively super safe procedures if done by a qualified and experienced surgeon. A closed rhinoplasty approach is done with no external incisions, but through the nasal nostrils. The recovery is also much smoother after closed rhinoplasty because the swelling is very minimal. In most cases, patients can go back to their normal life after 2 -3 days after the procedure.
They will have a plastic cover or splint on the nose, but that is also removed after a week of the surgery. Bruising is also very minimal and is virtually gone after a week of the surgery. However, with open rhinoplasty, swelling and healing time could be slightly more than the closed rhinoplasty procedure. It can take up to four months for the swelling to completely reside. It can also increase the risk of tip necrosis, which is unheard of with the closed rhinoplasty approach. Open rhinoplasty is done in some cases where significant alterations need to be done or if nostrils need to be reshaped as desired.
- No procedure is one size fit all
Like with anything in life, every experience differs from patient to patient. However, in general, rhinoplasty with Dr Bashar Bizrah usually takes from 40 minutes to 2 hours depending on the complexity of the case. Rhinoplasty is considered virtually pain-free with mild discomfort that can be eased with a simple Panadol. However, some people may experience more pain depending on their individual threshold.
Swelling and bruising are also common amongst some patients. However, the degree of swelling and bruising may differ from each patient to patient. Most patients experience major swelling after the first 2 weeks of the procedure; however, this will slowly reside moving forward. The cast placed immediately after the procedure is kept anywhere between 7 to 10 days, depending on the doctor’s advice.
- Post-op aftercare
It is important to ensure not to take any aspirin or blood-thinning drugs to decrease the bleeding risk after the operation. If you are on Roaccutane, it is essential to stop taking this medication around 3 to 4 months before the operation as it will influence the healing of scars, if any. It is also advised to refrain from exercise or activity for the first 3 to 4 weeks. Nose touching is also not allowed within the first two weeks post the operation. This is to prevent any infection or movement of the nose.
- There is no age for Rhinoplasty
If you are over the age of 18, rhinoplasty can be done for everyone and anyone. If you are a healthy individual there should be no reason to prohibit you from undergoing a nose job. However, to get an individual assessment, please do not hesitate to contact us.
- Your second-best option
If you are worried about having an expensive operation and not liking the nose reshaping results, non-surgical rhinoplasty may be the solution for you. Depending on your nose, fillers could be used to cover a hump or bump by injecting the filler either below or above the bump. In addition, it can be added to the tip to lift it. It is the ideal procedure to be done for the patient to get a better idea of how his/her nose will look like after their nose reshaping Dubai procedure. However, the filler is temporary and lasts anywhere between 6 to 9 months. This service is also offered at our clinic with the highest standards of quality and expertise.
