Nose job, that is rhinoplasty, has been one of the most popular aesthetic operations in the last years. It has been performed for many years. It is possible to reach the desired healthy nose with rhinoplasty, which is preferred to correct both aesthetic and functional concerns. Rhinoplasty solves problems such as overly prominent, crooked, or humpy nose, deviated septum or nasal fracture and collapsed nostrils. It also sweeps away various breathing problems.
The techniques used in rhinoplasty in our country have been developing. Thanks to new techniques, easy and smooth operations are performed in which patients can recover in a short time. Finding a surgeon with genuine rhinoplasty expertise and considerable rhinoplasty experience is quite significant.
Choosing the Right Surgeon
Before rhinoplasty, the patient shouldn’t have any question marks in their mind and there should be a trust network between the patient and the doctor. The patient must explain the nose they desire to have clearly. After the doctor’s medical examination, a successful operation can be performed.
Best Time for Rhinoplasty
One of the most frequently asked questions by rhinoplasty patients is when to have the surgery. Rhinoplasty can be done in any season. The best time for the surgery is the time the patient is ready to have it, has all the detailed information about the procedure and the process, and finds the right surgeon. Some factors may affect the recovery period and the patient’s comfort negatively.
The patient must be in good health during and after the surgery. Therefore, rhinoplasty should be performed when the person recovers from flu or cold. If you have surgery when you are flu or cold, you might experience some difficulties during the recovery period.
When is the Best Season for Rhinoplasty?
Nose surgery could take place at any time during the year, but each season has distinct benefits and there are some important things you can do for each season to ensure success. You can have rhinoplasty in summer. After the surgery, you should put on sun cream with high protective factor or wear a hat for some time because hot weather and the sun might affect the recovery period negatively. You can swim in the sea 15 days after the surgery and in the pool 4 weeks after the surgery. You can’t wear glasses for 4 to 8 weeks.
Winter and spring are also appropriate unless there is an infection. In very cold weather, after the surgery, even though there might be a little pain in the nose, it won’t influence the recovery period. In winter, avoid crowded places and contact with people with upper respiratory infection.
When Should People with an Allergy Have Rhinoplasty Surgery?
People with an allergy might suffer from sneezing, nasal drainage and nasal obstruction in spring. In this season, your doctor should take the necessary precautions while he/she is planning the surgery.
After the surgery, avoid contact and impact on the nose.
When all the necessary precautions are taken, rhinoplasty can be performed in any season. Working people prefer to receive rhinoplasty during summer because of their annual leaves. Since schools are closed in winter, some people prefer February to have the operation. In studies conducted, no relationship was found between the season the surgery performed and the results of the surgery. The best time is the time you feel yourself ready for it.
