Concerned: Concerning that you've have 3 rhinos at 31. As you've seen, rhinoplasty can be tricky and each additional procedure becomes moreso. It's hard w/o pics but you're level of worry concerns me. I would not have any more surgery for 9-12 mos. Fillers are not likely the answer. You need to see a plastic surgeon with extensive rhino experience. While I do rhinos, i would send you to a colleague w/ > exp. ...Read more

Is rhinoplasty a good procedure to do oversees? I know medical tourism is better for some procedures than others. Is rhinoplasty a good one to do in another country? .

Is rhinoplasty a good procedure to do oversees? I know medical tourism is better for some procedures than others. Is rhinoplasty a good one to do in another country?

.

Not a good idea: While there are some excellent surgeons overseas, there are some really bad ones also. Overseas medical creditials, board certification, experience and safetly standards are not the same as in the us. Rhinoplasty is the most complex surgery in the face- you need experience for a good result, and good follow- up for at least the first year or two. Sometimes you get what you pay for... Good luck! ...Read more

How does one breathe after the nose base narrowed in a rhinoplasty?

How does one breathe after the nose base narrowed in a rhinoplasty?

Nasal Base Narrowing: The narrowest part of the nasal airway is the internal nasal valve, located about 2 cm into the nose. This may be narrowed by osteotomies or hump reductions that weaken the nasal sidewalls, but not by nostril reduction. That is not to say that nostril reduction cannot be overdone. Choose a surgeon with experience in this maneuver specifically who can discuss you options with you. ...Read more

Had genioplasty and rhinoplasty over a month now. Still painful and swells up a lot! Especially chin, hurts and very tense. I know it'll take time?

Had genioplasty and rhinoplasty over a month now. Still painful and swells up a lot! Especially chin, hurts and very tense. I know it'll take time?

Call surgeon: Your postop care covers 90 days of follow-up care at no additional cost. It's included with your surgeries. So it's best to contact her/him, and find out what you can do to relieve the pain, and swelling, and to feel more comfortable during your healing. You need to find out how long this will last, so that you can have peace of mind, and plan other things you can do now to help it along. ...Read more

I have had a revision rhinoplasty 1.5 months ago and the swelling around my eye area occured again.Is this normal?

Swelling: A little swelling can come and go after surgery, especially revision surgery, but if there is any more than just a small amout i would go back and see my doctor. If an implant was used, infection is a possibility and i wouldn't wait too long. Hopefully it is just a small amout and it goes away on its own. ...Read more
