Important Information About Rhinoplasty Procedures in Sacramento
While many cosmetic procedures used to be taboo in the United States, it has now become almost a standard amongst models, celebrities and every day people. Many individuals rule their lives based on the simple idea that if they don’t like something about themselves then it is beneficial to change it. As a result, this ideology has drastically flowed over into obtaining cosmetic procedures. One of these cosmetic procedures, rhinoplasty, is becoming one of the more popular surgeries being performed in the US today.
It is very important as with any other cosmetic procedure, for our patients to know that results may vary and a risk is always present. However, many patients lack the knowledge that is necessary to make a beneficial decision regarding this surgery. Below is a list of frequently asked questions that patients who desire a rhinoplasty in Sacramento often ask.
What Are Some Reasons for Getting a Rhinoplasty?
The majority of the time, individuals are interested in a rhinoplasty procedure for one of two reasons: 1) Cosmetic and 2) Functional. Patients who are not happy with the appearance of their nose may invest in rhinoplasty (or nose job) to enhance facial features and obtain a look that is more aesthetically pleasing. Individuals that fall under the latter category undergo rhinoplasty surgery in Sacramento as an effort to correct breathing or nasal structure issues that interfere with common functions like breathing and sleeping.
What Does the Procedure Consist Of?
In general, a typical nose job procedure will last one to two-and-a-half hours from beginning to end. Before the procedure begins, patients will be sedated with intravenous medication or receive general anesthesia, which helps ensure a safe and comfortable surgery. Techniques vary from patient to patient, but, in general, incisions are made within the nasal cavity in order to prevent any scarring. Dr. Mabourakh then shapes the bone and cartilage through these incisions. In certain circumstances where cartilage affects breathing, a septoplasty may also be performed.
What is Recovery Like?
Many of our patients do not experience much pain within the recovery period, however there are exceptions and pain medication if often prescribed as a precaution. Common side effects of the procedure may include bruising, swelling, and slight nasal congestion within the first few days after the procedure. Many of our patients resume normal activities within a week and can begin physical activity in the following three to six weeks.
