Rhinoplasty, also referred to as nose surgery or nose job, is a surgical procedure that can shorten or lengthen your nose, change its shape or contour, narrow the nostrils, or lift and define the tip. The first thing you need to take into consideration when opting for nose surgery is that you have it done for yourself and not for anyone else. Keep in mind that this procedure is not only for improving your physical aspect but also for correcting some medical issues. People in Birmingham can certainly benefit from such a procedure, resting assured that at Renew Skin and Health Clinic they will receive the desired results.

People in Birmingham will find highly qualified plastic surgeons at Renew Skin and Health Clinic, surgeons who can offer you exquisite nose jobs ensuring excellent cosmetic results. The procedure is done either using a general or a local anesthetic. The nose reshaping surgery consist in the surgeon making incisions that grant access to the bones and cartilage that support the nose, which are generally made on the inside, thus making them invisible after the nose reshaping surgery.

Depending on the type of nasal correction you require, some tissue may be added (from another part of the body or a synthetic filter) or some bone and cartilage may be removed. After reshaping and rearranging the bone and cartilage the skin and tissue is reshaped over the nose and a splint is placed in order to support the new shape. The nose reshaping surgery is usually performed as an outpatient procedure and may sometimes require a 1-night stay in the surgery center, in order to ensure that complications do not appear.

Within two days from the nose reshaping or nose job, the surgical packing in the nose will be removed, while the splint and bandages will be removed in about a week. After the rhinoplasty your face will feel puffy and for several days your eyes and nose will be bruised and swollen. In order to reduce the pain and swelling Renew Skin and Health Clinic’s plastic surgeons recommend applying a cold compress, and you will also probably be prescribed some pain medicine. For the first few days after the procedure you may need to keep your head elevated and relatively still, and it may take 10-14 days before you can perform strenuous activities.
Rhinoplasty should be performed only on a fully developed nose (for women at the age of 15, 16 and for men at the age of 17, 18) in order to avoid complications. The risks of rhinoplasty involve: bleeding, injuries or holes to the septum, breakdown of skin tissue, irritation from tape and bandages, infections (antibiotics may be prescribed to reduce this risk), nasal blockages and complications of anesthesia.

The rhinoplasty treatment at Renew Skin and Health Clinic is performed by highly qualified surgeons who can ensure the best cosmetic results as well as the correction of structural problems such as chronic congestion and breathing issues, reassuring you that the risks are minimized due to their experience and the great care they take in meeting your needs and expectations involving the final result of the entire procedure.
