The pandemic of COVID 19 has changed the way the world functions, overnights. Our day to day to routines have gone for a toss and there is a new norm which has set in and social distancing is one of them. This doesn’t stop you from making a decision about undergoing Rhinoplasty Toronto. Rhinoplasty is also known as the nose job. If you have a deviated septum or want to change the way your nose looks, then this is the procedure for you. With every cosmetic surgery, there is a list of do’s and don’t’s that comes associated with it.
Deciding on a surgeon: Choose your surgeon wisely. Ensure that they are certified and experienced so that you get the best care possible. Though experience and certification are important, it is also crucial that you feel comfortable with your surgeon and establish a rapport. When you have a certain level of comfort with your surgeon you are able to express your anxieties and aesthetic goals more openly and easily with the doctor and have honest discussions about the procedure.
- Mentally prepared:
When you decide to undergo the procedure, make sure that you are mentally prepared for it. The goal of the surgeon will be to harmonize your nose aesthetically and beautifully with your facial features in such a way that it looks both natural and balanced. During your consultation with the surgeon make sure that you ask all the questions that you have regarding the procedure and discuss your goals clearly.
- Plan your procedure:
When you are booking your procedure make sure that you have enough time in your hand to heal properly. It takes about two to three months for the swelling around the nose to completely ease off.
- Avoid anything that causes blood thinning:
Before you undergo the procedure you would be given a list of medication that you need to avoid like certain painkillers and supplements as they cause blood thinning. This blood thinning, in turn, could potentially cause excess bleeding. Till the time your doctor doesn’t tell you, you can’t resume any of the blood-thinning medication.
- No Smoking:
If you are a smoker, then you are going to have to quit smoking for at least two weeks before you undergo the procedure. Smoking not only acts as an ageing factor but also slows down the healing process.
- Avoid The Sun:
After having undergone the procedure you would be asked to take a couple of weeks off in order to recover. During this time and till your doctor recommends you are going to have to avoid stepping into the sun. In case you have to make sure that you wear a huge hat which covers the nose. This is because the skin becomes sensitive and the chances of a skin burn become higher.
- Don’t Panic:
When your cast is removed after undergoing the procedure, your nose might be a bit swollen. Don’t panic as this normal. You will notice a dramatic change. After the second week, as the new nose starts to settle in, the swelling will also start to subside.
