Rhinoplasty (also known as nose jobs) don’t just improve your nose, but can help balance your facial features. It’s a very delicate procedure, since facial structure and nerves are quite delicate, so it’s important to go to a credible and experienced rhinoplasty Singapore plastic surgeon.

Can I really change my nose’s shape?

In general, this procedure can change your nose’s length and width, remove a hump, or refine a very round or bulbous nose tip and the angle where it meets the upper lip.  However, it’s not as simple as “picking a nose you like”. Your surgeon will look at your face shape and nose structure so that your features are balanced and you don’t develop any breathing problems.

Pain levels and recovery

You’ll be under anesthesia, so you won’t feel anything during the procedure. Rhinoplasty Singapore patients also say that even during the following weeks you’ll only feel a little discomfort, which can be managed with medicines. There is swelling (especially in the first three days) and congestion, but you can use cold packs and saline nasal rinses.

Recovery time depends on your own health/capacity to heal, age, and what your surgeon had to do in order to achieve your desired nose shape.  You will need to stay home for 7 to 10 days or until the swelling subsides. Your rhinoplasty Singapore doctor will give you specific recommendations based on your type of work and medical history.

You will also need to follow medical precautions about activities that can raise your blood pressure or interfere with recovery.
