What to Expect When you Have Rhinoplasty
If you are planning to have a nose job, you certainly wouldn’t be the only woman who is unhappy with the shape of their nose, indeed, many Asian women have the treatment to make the bridge of the nose more prominent. If you are about to make some enquiries, this article walks you through the process and hopefully, will help you to make the right choices.
Sourcing a Plastic Surgeon
When looking for a leading nose surgery clinic (known as คลินิกเสริมจมูก in Thai), Google is your best friend, and if you happen to live in Bangkok, you are indeed lucky, as the best cosmetic surgery clinics are in Thailand. Bangkok is the global hub for all types of plastic surgery, so you’ll have no problems finding a top-rated clinic that has state-of-the-art facilities. Once on the website, check the resident surgeon’s credentials, then take a look at the client reviews, which will give you a clear picture of what to expect regarding service.
Booking a Free Consultation
Most clinics offer a free initial consultation, during which time the client and surgeon discuss the options, and part of this initial meeting is for the surgeon to make you fully aware of the risks and of the expected outcome. The surgeon would use before and after images to help the client select a look that they like, and when everything is agreed, the surgeon would schedule the treatment.
The first thing to decide is whether to use a general or local anesthetic, and most operations are performed when the patient is under general anesthetic, as this is more comfortable and the patient will not move. The average time for surgery would be 1-2 hours, with complex procedures taking longer, and when you wake up, it will all be over.
Of course, the surgeon would give you a list of do’s and don’ts to facilitate rapid healing, and these instructions should be followed if you wish to heal quickly. The surgeon might place a plastic or metal bridge over your nose, to ensure it remains protected, plus he may place special pods inside your nostrils, to keep the nasal passages in the same position. You would be monitored for a few hours in a recovery room before being allowed to return home, and you are advised to find a driver to assist you, as you cannot drive while still under the effects of the anesthetic.
In complex cases, the patient might have to remain in hospital for a couple of days, but that is rare.
