If you have been staring at your latest Instagram pictures thinking that your profile might look better with a different nose, there are a few things you should consider.
1. There is no perfect nose.
Although Kate Middleton may seem like she has it, the truth is you might look quite strange with her nose or anyone else’s. The goal of rhinoplasty is not to give you a perfect nose. The goal of a great nose reshaping surgery is to balance your nose with your features and provide a new, more flattering definition to your facial appearance.
2. You need to plan for recovery time.
Although with modern surgical techniques, your nose surgery is as comfortable and quick as possible, you will still need time to recover. Your body takes time to heal, and in the case of rhinoplasty, you will need to take about a week away from work for your initial recovery and be prepared to see a swollen nose in the mirror for a few weeks. Most swelling will subside within the first 2-4 weeks, but your final results can take a few months. Be patient. It’s worth the wait.
3. Manage your expectations for the most satisfying results.
It is important to talk honestly with your plastic surgeon about your goals for nose surgery and what changes to your appearance are realistic to accomplish with surgery. Your genetics and your basic nasal structure limit the degree of change that is possible. Knowing what to expect before surgery can help you love your results!
