Rhinoplasty is the most common cosmetic surgery procedure performed in the Turkey. The nose has many different functions and can change dramatically depending on its shape and size. Rhinoplasty reshapes the nose to improve its function and appearance.
Rhinoplasty can be performed on patients of any age, but the procedure is generally most effective when it is performed during adolescence or early adulthood when bone is still growing and cartilage is soft and malleable. If you’re considering rhinoplasty, it’s important to find a surgeon with experience performing this procedure in children. The best candidates for rhinoplasty are healthy individuals who are physically active, take good care of themselves, and have realistic expectations about the results they can expect from surgery.
To ensure you get the results you want, it’s important to research all of your options before undergoing rhinoplasty surgery. Here are some tips for preparing for rhinoplasty:
1. Don’t have a big meal before the procedure
A big meal can cause vomiting during or right after surgery. If you feel nauseous before surgery, drink clear liquids like water or juices without pulp until an hour before your appointment time.
2. Avoid Smoking a week or two before surgery
This is an important step in preparing for rhinoplasty. It’s not just about what you eat and drink, but also includes the type of cigarettes you smoke. If you smoke menthol cigarettes, it’s best to quit at least one week prior to surgery. Menthol cigarettes contain a chemical that can affect wound healing and reduce your blood supply to the skin. This can lead to increased bruising or swelling after surgery. The same is true for any other form of nicotine replacement therapy such as patches or gum.
3. Talk to your doctor about any supplements that you are taking
Some supplements may interfere with the healing process and other medications may cause complications during recovery. You should discuss any supplements or medications with your doctor before having rhinoplasty so that he or she can give you advice on whether it is safe for you to take these things before or after surgery.
4. Do not drink alcohol or take recreational and herbal drugs before having rhinoplasty.
If you are under the influence of alcohol or drugs you may experience severe bleeding, which will prolong your recovery time and require hospitalization. You should also avoid aspirin or any medications that thin the blood for at least one week prior to surgery.
5. Get plenty of sleep on the night before surgery
This is important because you don’t want to be groggy or sleepy when you go into surgery. It’s much better to be well rested so that you can focus on yourself and enjoy the experience.
6. Discuss all medications and supplements you are taking with your doctor
Some medications may interfere with anesthesia or affect post-operative pain management. You also may need to stop taking certain medications before surgery because they could cause complications during your recovery period or increase bleeding risk during surgery. You should stop using aspirin or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen up to one week prior to surgery because these medications stimulate blood clotting.
7. Prepare your home for your recovery
Make sure that you have plenty of space in your home for your recovery. You will need a place where you can rest comfortably without having to worry about interruptions or disturbances from other members of your family. Plan ahead so that you can move furniture around if necessary, and make sure that there is room in your bedroom for visitors to come by and check on you during recovery.
8. Plan for meals on the days following surgery
To make sure you get the nutrients you need after surgery, plan ahead for meals on the days following surgery. Choose foods that are easy to digest and avoid spicy or acidic foods. You may be able to eat normally after a few weeks, but it’s important to follow your doctor’s instructions about what you can eat following nasal surgery.
9. Take your vitamins
Taking vitamins can help your body recover after surgery and boost immunity. Vitamin C and vitamin E are particularly important because they help with healing, while B vitamins help prevent anemia. These vitamins should be taken before and after the procedure in order to maximize their benefits.
10. Avoid sun exposure
If at all possible, avoid sun exposure during the three weeks leading up to your rhinoplasty procedure. Sun exposure can cause changes in skin tone which may be noticeable after surgery.
11. Learn about your surgery.
One of the most important steps in preparing for rhinoplasty is learning all you can about the procedure. While it’s impossible to predict exactly how much your nose will be affected by surgery, you can get a sense of what to expect by reading up on other people’s experiences. You may also want to talk with someone who has had the same procedure done, or at least someone who has had a similar surgery. If you’re having a septoplasty or turbinate reduction along with your rhinoplasty, learn as much as possible about these procedures as well.
12. Avoid blood thinners.
Blood thinners prevent clots from forming in your body after surgery. They include aspirin and warfarin (Coumadin). If you’re taking blood thinners prior to surgery, talk with your doctor about adjusting your dosage or switching to another medication to ensure it doesn’t interfere with your rhinoplasty procedure.
13. Be positive when discussing the changes you’d like to see in your nose.
Rhinoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure that typically involves changing the length, shape and size of the patient’s nose in order to improve their overall look and self-esteem. While there are several things that can be done during a rhinoplasty procedure, be sure to discuss with your surgeon exactly what changes you would like to see made to your nose prior to having surgery so they can give you an accurate estimate of how much time it will take and how much it will cost.
14. Set up a support system of family and friends who will help you during the recovery process.
Be sure to let them know about any aftercare instructions you’re given by your doctor so they can help you through it all. Take time off work if necessary to allow for proper healing time after the procedure.
15. Avoid wearing makeup immediately following the procedure.
Do not blow your nose, sneeze, cough or laugh until your doctor gives you permission. Avoid sleeping on your stomach for two weeks after surgery. Take over-the-counter pain medication as directed by your doctor. Do not use aspirin products or other medications containing aspirin for at least two weeks following surgery because they can increase bleeding during recovery from rhinoplasty surgery.
16. Arrange for someone to watch over you after surgery
After your procedure has been completed, arrange for someone else (preferably someone who lives nearby) to stay with you while recovering at home. That way, they can help look after any discomforts or concerns that arise during this time period and keep an eye on any complications that might occur due to the anesthesia used during the procedure itself.
