You might set your mind to undergoing Nose Surgery performed by Dr Michelle Shermak but there are a few things you should do before undergoing rhinoplasty. Discuss with your doctor about the medications you are currently taking, allergies, or other medical conditions before surgery. Before the operation, set schedule a meeting with your anaesthetist. It is important to follow the doctor’s instructions to stop eating or drinking before surgery. You will be given instructions before the operation, such as whether you are allowed to eat before surgery. In general, you should be fasting 6 hours before the procedure begins. You may be allowed to drink liquids, such as coffee, a few hours before the operation. The nose surgery is usually performed under general anaesthesia and lasts for about 1 to 90 minutes. Your surgeon will fix the tip of your nose by lifting some cartilage. If you have a hump (dorsum) of the nose, the surgeon can lift or erode it. Typically, the base on the bone at the side of the nose will be broken first so that the nose can be minimised and managed. The surgeon may rebuild your nose.
If you are fitted with a bandage on the nose, usually will be released the next morning. You may experience a nosebleed for 15 minutes. After that, you are allowed to go home. You need to rest and stay away from the crowd for 2 weeks. This is to avoid the flu, which can lead to infection. Avoid exercise, warm baths, and down for 2 weeks. Exercising can help you back in business as usual. Consult your doctor first. It may take a few months until the end of your nose visible results. What complications can occur? Risks involved in rhinoplasty may include:
– bleeding (hematoma)
– perforation of the nasal septum rare. Additional surgery may be needed to correct the septum but difficult to fix these complications
– difficulty breathing
– appearance of the nose which are not satisfactory
– skin discoloration and swelling
These risks will be discussed with your approval. It is important to you ask all your questions to your surgeon.
