3 tips to prepare for a rhinoplasty

If you are thinking about going under the knife to have cosmetic work done, you will first have to decide what part of your body you want to have altered. One of the most common procedures is a rhinoplasty, otherwise known as a nose job.

While nose jobs are not as invasive as other kinds of surgery, you still want to make sure that you are properly prepared for the entire process. A different nose can alter the shape of your entire face, something you will have to take into consideration.

Here are a few tips to help you prepare:

  • Arrange post-operative care: You don't know how long it will take you to recover from the surgery, so be sure to have every aspect of your life covered by somebody else so you have time to rest and get better.
  • Have a consultation: Before you decide on anything, you need to consult with a board certified medical professional. That way you will have all of the information you need in order to make an informed decision over whether or not to have the nose job.
  • Stop smoking: If you are a smoker, you will need to stop in the days and weeks leading up to your surgery. This is to help reduce the risk of you contracting an infection, as well as to speed up the healing process.
