Rhinoplasties can be one of the most effective cosmetic procedures to reinvent your face. Our noses aren’t something we think about too often, but they are a central and defining feature of our faces. As some of the best rhinoplasty surgeons out there, we’re very acquainted with the process and benefits of getting a rhinoplasty. If you’re wondering about getting a rhinoplasty in Toronto, this piece will help guide you through the basics.
What is a Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job, is any kind of cosmetic surgery that alters the shape of a nose. Rhinoplasties encompass a variety of procedures that can help you restructure your nose. This can include smoothing out bumps, reducing the size of the nose, or cutting back on certain areas such as the tip.
Rhinoplasty is generally a day-long procedure. You’ll need to show up an hour or so before the procedure, which can take from one to three hours. Afterward, you may need to spend a couple of hours at the clinic before heading home.
After this, you may need to wear splints or bandages for up to a week after the procedure. There may be some swelling or bruising for one or two weeks after this – but beyond this point, there’s nothing to worry about except enjoying your new features!
