Your Drummonds nose job may have several components, including correcting your deviated septum, removing the bump on your nose, refining your nasal tip, making your nose less wide with a nasal in-fracture, making your nasal tip profile less prominent, or making the nostrils of your nose flare out less. What kind of pain would you expect from all or some of these procedures?
The most pain you will feel is from any potential bony work, specifically if the bony part of your nose needs to be made more narrow. If your nose job requires your plastic surgeon to break your nose, and then make it more narrow, then this will hurt the most. Even though your nasal bones are very thin, breaking your nasal bones will probably cause bruising under your eyelid areas and around your cheeks, as well as significant pain right after your rhinoplasty surgery.
Cost of Rhinoplasty
Like many other cosmetic surgery procedures, rhinoplasty is a delicate procedure. It may be performed to reshape the tip of the nose or simply alter the angle between the nose and the upper lips. The procedure also takes into account other facial features to ensure that it does not result in any unforeseen complications especially in terms of proportionality. The modifications may be done on the cartilage, skin, bone or all the three features.
Types of Rhinoplasty
There are two major types of rhinoplasty that may be performed namely closed rhinoplasty and open rhinoplasty.
· Closed Rhinoplasty - Here, the surgeon will make an incision in the nostrils. While at it, he may opt to remove bones and cartilages found in the nose where necessary. This type of rhinoplasty does not present the risk of scarring. An artificial implant may be performed to ensure the nose assumes the desired shape as per your needs.
· Open Rhinoplasty - This is where surgery is performed but does not affect the bones and cartilages in the nose. In fact, this type of rhinoplasty pays attention to the safety of the nose's inner parts. Thus an incision is made across columella, the thin lining tissues separating the nostrils. The tip of the skin can then be carefully removed before surgery is performed. In open rhinoplasty, a scar will remain on the underside of your nose.
Rhinoplasty Risk Factors
There are a number of risks associated with rhinoplasty. These risks include getting an infection in the nose, injury to the columella, appearance of tiny red spots on the skin and bleeding. A majority of people may have bruises or swelling that take time to fade on the nose.
The road to recovery after rhinoplasty begins soon after surgery but takes a long time. While the bandaging and splint on the nose may be removed a week after surgery, you may continue to feel puffy. This may fade after a couple of weeks. Cold presses are often recommended in order to reduce pain and the swelling. Overall, the recovery window for rhinoplasty may last several weeks to months. The duration is dependent on the type of surgery performed. You will do well to consider getting a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon for best results. In summary, rhinoplasty is a great way of boosting your confidence by improving your looks without interfering with you way and quality of life.

Recovering From Rhinoplasty Surgery
There are many reasons that people choose to undergo rhinoplasty. For instance, people consider nose jobs to reshape their nose - whether reducing the size, or adding size to it - and to repair damage caused by trauma. Yet, in general, there are four common types of rhinoplasty: Reduction, augmentation, ethnic and post-traumatic rhinoplasties.
Do you know which type you're considering? You likely have a general idea of what you would like to accomplish with nasal surgery. But understanding the different types will help you weigh your options. Here's a quick look at the four most common types:
1. Reduction Rhinoplasty
The majority of patients seeking rhinoplasty want to decrease the size of their nose, whether the length of the bridge, the size of the tip, or the width of the bridge. Most commonly reduction rhinoplasty addresses bumps on the bridge of the nose, as well as decreasing the width of the nasal bridge. When your goal is to reduce specific areas of the nose, you will first meet with your rhinoplasty surgeon to discuss your options. Then, your surgeon will develop a surgical plan that's designed to meet your expectations.
2. Augmentation Rhinoplasty
Another common reason patients seek a nose job is to increase dimensions of the nose. For example, a patient may opt for this type of procedure to widen the bridge of the nose, or to increase the projection of the tip. Augmentation is usually required when the nose has underdeveloped congenitally, or when injury has caused underdevelopment. Typically, cartilage from the nose can be used to build up the nasal structure, yet sometimes cartilage must be grafted.
3. Ethnic Rhinoplasty
Ethnic rhinoplasty is a term that's widely used to describe a nose job that specific population groups undergo to revise their natural nasal profile. For example, some Far Eastern and Afro-Cuban populations seek a nose job to adjust a softer nasal contour, a wider bridge, or a narrower bridge of the nose, which may be a common genetic trait shared by the population. This requires precision and skill to properly balance the nose to achieve natural-looking facial symmetry, and it's best to find a surgeon with advanced training and specialization in ethnic rhinoplasty.
4. Post-Traumatic Rhinoplasty
The nose is one of the most commonly broken bones, and following an injury to the nose, the resulting damage to the cartilage and bones can alter one's appearance. Rhinoplasty is commonly performed to repair damage caused by traumatic injury. In many cases, a nose job isn't required, as the nose can be set non-surgically up to a week following the injury. Yet, if the nose isn't set quickly enough, surgery is often the only option for reversing the damage. One reason: Bleeding caused by trauma can cause clotting within the nose, which can kill the cartilage. This loss of cartilage can cause deformation - a condition that's sometimes called "boxer nose," which requires surgery to repair.
