Feeling good about rhinoplasty
Geordie Shore star Charlotte Crosby said of her new nose that “It looks exactly like when I Photoshopped it! I love it.”
Over a hundred thousand people get rhinoplasties every year. For those who have felt self-conscious about their faces for so long, it is liberating to finally be able to show the world a face you are comfortable with. Some young women have chosen to document every stage of their own rhinoplasties and recoveries for their friends — not only the before and after, but the transition period between the end of the surgery and the dissipation of the aftereffects.
Rhinoplasty can also solve some breathing problems, such as sleep apnea from a deviated septum. It can even be given to patients to fix earlier nose jobs. This is called revision rhinoplasty, and it is particularly complex. A patient should wait for at least one year after one rhinoplasty before undergoing a revision, and look for a surgeon who has often done revision rhinoplasties.
After surgery, there is a certain amount of swelling, moderate bruising and sometimes temporary skin numbness. The bruising fades within a week to ten days, while the swelling can last for several weeks. Don’t jump to any conclusions about what your new nose looks like until the swelling has gone down.
