Let’s face it; if you have never really been happy with the shape or size of your nose, you’re not alone! Many men and women avoid having photographs taken because they are unhappy with the shape of their nose. Despite reassurances from well-meaning friends and family who tell us we have nothing to worry about!
At Gold Coast Plastic Surgery, we have the privilege of witnessing first-hand the difference a Rhinoplasty (aka nose job) can make to a person’s appearance.
What to expect from a nose job
Rhinoplasty can straighten a nose, change the shape of all parts of the nose and improve breathing difficulties. This procedure can attract Medicare and Health Insurance rebates in some patients, particularly if the procedure is done to correct problems from an injury or there are breathing issues.
The Rhinoplasty procedure
During your consultation Dr Doyle uses digital imagery to give you a personal preview of the difference your new nose could make to your appearance.
Rhinoplasty is performed under general anaesthesia and normally takes 1 to 2 hours to complete. It is a day stay in hospital and you will have a splint on your nose that will need to be removed by our nurses at 5-7 days post operation. Normal activity can be resumed in 2 to 3 weeks.
Rhinoplasty Before and Afters
Is Rhinoplasty right for you?
Surgery should never be undertaken lightly. And while getting a nose job for medical reasons is—usually—an easy decision, doing it for cosmetic reasons is something which should be given careful thought.
Because while revision surgery is possible, this is the sort of procedure you want to be 100% confident is the right thing for you moving forward. You should never have cosmetic surgery to please someone else—this is arguably the worst reason to have surgery.
If you feel—for whatever reason—that Rhinoplasty is going to improve the shape of your nose and you’re happy with the change, then we recommend you book a consultation with Dr Doyle at Gold Coast Plastic Surgery today.
