Be ready to spend money
Don’t go abroad to have rhinoplasty done cheap. People who’ve gone to Thailand for rhinoplasty and gotten bad results have been unable to successfully sue for damages. Also, revision rhinoplasty is more complicated than regular rhinoplasty, just as expensive, and you’ll have to wait at least a year after the original surgery. That’s a long time to be stuck with a nose that looks worse than before. Done by an expert in an American operating room, rhinoplasty is one of the safer surgeries. About ninety percent of those who get it are happy with the results, and only about one in thirty need revision.
A month before surgery, you should have a talk with your surgeon about what you want and what you’re hoping the surgery will accomplish. Two weeks before surgery, ask your surgeon if there are any medications you should be taking, and tell him or her about those you already take. At least one day before surgery, buy lip balm and beverages and cut back on salt.
After surgery, you’ll be breathing through your mouth, so you should use the lip balm and beverages to keep your lips and mouth moisturized. Don’t do heavy exercise or wear pullover garments.
