Rhinoplasty Poland - FAQ

Updated July 16, 2019

What is rhinoplasty or nose reshaping?

Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that can change the looks of your nose. It is performed when you wish to make your nose smaller or larger, get rid off a bump, make your nose straighter or slimmer. If you feel that your nose does not match your face or that you wish to make it look more beautiful, then nose reshaping surgery is for you.

What is involved in the procedure?

Rhinoplasty is performed using general anesthesia. During the procedure, the surgeon may take different approach depending on the type of surgery. In open rhinoplasty, the surgeon makes incision on the bottom of your nose, right between your nostrils. If you choose closed rhinoplasty than he will make the incision in the lining of your nostrils. Depending on the effects you wish to achieve, the surgeon will manipulate your cartilage or break the bone. After the surgery you will be taken to your room in our clinic to rest. The clinic staff will take care of you until the next day, when you can come back to your hotel.

What’s the difference between an open and closed rhinoplasty?

If you and your surgeon decide to perform open rhinoplasty than the incision will be placed underneath the nose. In closed rhinoplasty, all the incisions ale placed inside your nose. As you can see, the basic difference is the placement of the incision site. Most surgeons prefer closed rhinoplasty, because they say it heals faster than open nose job. However, some surgeons prefer open approach, because it gives them more control over the procedure.

How can I prepare for rhinoplasty?

As before any other plastic surgery, you should not take aspirin or aspirin-containing products. Also, you should stop drinking alcohol 72 hours before and after the procedure. Another important thing to remember is that you cannot smoke two weeks prior/after your surgery.

Before your plastic surgery, you will have a consultation with our surgeon. He will discuss with you possible outcomes of the procedure and answer all your questions. He will also, determine what type of rhinoplasty is best for you.

What’s the recovery time after rhinoplasty?

Healing time varies with each patient. However, it is common to expect some bruising and swelling after the surgery. In some cases, you may experience black eyes usually when the bone in your nose has been broken. It is recommended to breath through your mouth after the surgery, because of all the bandages and possible congestion in your nose. Unfortunately, days after the surgery are no fun. You may experience some pain in your nose area, as well as your head in general. Sleeping poses some problems too. You should sleep sitting, because it is not advised to lay down.

After 5 or 7 days after the surgery, your surgeon or general doctor will take off your cast or nasal bandages. Next stages of healing will be easier for you, because you may sleep normally and breath through your nose. Many patients ask how many days after the surgery they may go back to work. Usually, you should notice less swelling and bruising 10-14 days after the procedure. However, please remember that this should be light work. Normal activity and exercise should wait at least a month.

Does getting a nose job hurt?

The surgery is performed using general anesthesia, so you are asleep during the whole procedure. After the surgery, you will mostly feel discomfort, rather than pain. The surgeon will prescribe you some painkillers, just in case. Some patients say, that the most painful part of the whole procedure is taking of the nasal cast or the nose bandages, but do not worry about it too much.

What is Asian rhinoplasty?

Asian rhinoplasty is a plastic surgery for patients of Asian descent. Some people may want to make their noses narrower, add some height or create sharper tip. To get you personal assessment, please contact our patient advisers.

What results can I expect after rhinoplasty?

It is important to address your expectations clearly before the surgery. The surgeon needs to know what changes you wish to see in your nose so that he can plan the surgery accordingly. Most change is visible after the swelling and bruising is gone. However, to see the final results you may have to wait even years! Your nose will look healthy a year after your surgery, but the bone and cartilage is still healing. That is why surgeons do not advise revision rhinoplasty less than a year before the initial procedure. Please remember to give yourself time to heal.
