Like any surgical procedure, rhinoplasty or nose surgery for men (เสริม จมูก ผู้ชาย which is the term in Thai) requires anesthesia, which can be intravenous or general anesthesia. The doctor will decide which is the best option in each case. The remodeling of the nose structure is done through incisions, which are closed after the nose is sculpted in the planned way. After the procedure, the patient is left with an internal plaster and tampon to support the nose for approximately a week.
How Is The Recovery From Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty recovery will depend on each patient. However, it is estimated that the surgery will begin to heal for approximately a week. “Postoperatively, we used a tampon (varies from doctor to doctor) for 48 hours and a plaster cast on the back to keep the bone that was fractured in place. There is usually no pain, and the patient needs to sleep with the head elevated for 30 days. The stitches and plaster are removed after a week, and it is common to have an eyelid ecchymosis (purple on the eyelids) in the first 10 days.
The swelling gradually subsides, which may come and go and be a little worse in the morning. In 30 days after surgery, it is possible to see 95% of the final result. Between six months and a year, the result will be complete. When consulting the doctor, it is essential to ask about the medications prescribed after the surgery, how to rest, and when you can resume daily activities, including the physical exercise routine.
How Much Does A Rhinoplasty Cost?
The rhinoplasty cost may vary depending on the surgeon’s fees and the type of procedure performed. In addition, hospital-related expenses, anesthesiologist fees, pre-operative medical exams, and medications prescribed for recovery must be considered.
It is good to remember that health plans do not cover cosmetic surgery, only rhinoplasty with an indication for respiratory dysfunction.
