Rhinoplasty also referred to as a nose job, is a surgery that is aimed to change the shape of the nose or improve its function. People decide to make use of rhinoplasty for a number of reasons. They range from health-related problems to cosmetic issues. This is a well-known procedure that is considered safe across the whole globe. However, there are numerous myths and misconceptions floating around that might restrict people from making use of this procedure. The following section focuses on the main myths about rhinoplasty. 

It is a complicated and dangerous procedure 

This not necessarily true. Without any doubt, rhinoplasty is a complex procedure that requires a high level of expertise and surgical diligence of the rhinoplasty specialist. However, this does mean that this process will bring bad results. The majority of patients that experience some degree of pain after the surgery are prescribed with OTC (over-the-counter) pain relievers. They assist in reducing the pain after the surgery process. Just like any other surgery, rhinoplasty involves some potential side effects. These may include swelling, numbness around the nose or bleeding. Bruising is part of the procedure and some patients are more prone to it than others. It should be also said that rhinoplasty involves the use of either local or general anesthesia. 

Long recovery time 

Some people that consider undergoing rhinoplasty are highly concerned about the duration of recovery. Even though this is a surgical procedure the vast majority of people are able to get back to their normal activities within two weeks. Typically, an external splint is applied, which can be removed after a week. Even if you experience any of the side effects following the surgery, your rhinoplasty surgeon will prescribe OTC medication that will help you to reduce or eliminate pain. Rhinoplasty doctors advise making use of the following recommendations to ensure a smooth and fast recovery process. 

  • Avoid swimming and showering: you have to keep your bandages dry during the first week after the surgery. As an alternative, you can take a bath. 
  • Avoid blowing your nose: it will assist in minimizing irritation.
  • Avoid physical activities: going to the gym is not an option during the first two weeks after the surgery. Sports activities or even simple activities like lifting something heavy will put pressure on your nose. It will make it difficult for swelling to subside and for your nose to recover completely. 
  • Avoid smoking, drinking alcohol or direct sunlight: alcohol can increase the chance of bleeding and interact badly with the pain medication.

Any surgeon is qualified to perform a  rhinoplasty 

It is a well-known fact that there is no one-size-fits-all approach with rhinoplasty. In order to achieve the desired effect, you will have to state your expectations to your rhinoplasty doctor. Only he/she will be able to tell whether it is possible to meet your goal based on your condition and your nose structure. In the majority of cases, it is possible to modify your nose completely, but there are still several limitations to be considered. 

The process of rhinoplasty requires a high level of expertise and extensive experience in this field. Only professional rhinoplasty specialists will be able to meet your expectations while making the whole process safe and painless. Keep in mind that this is a complex procedure, thus, do not attempt to look for cheap options. Therefore, when deciding on a rhinoplasty doctor, make sure to analyze his/her experience and portfolio. The more experience a doctor has, the more confidence you can be in getting the desired outcome.
