Dr. Grady Core is a leading Birmingham, AL plastic surgeon, performing both rhinoplasty, more commonly known as a “nose job”, and septoplasty. With rhinoplasty, Dr. Core can reshape and re-contour the nose for improved balance and harmony among facial features. For those patients who are experiencing functional nasal issues, such as a deviated septum, Dr. Core offers septoplasty all for a very reasonable cost.
How Can I Benefit from a Nose Job?
In most cases, while performing cosmetic changes to the nose our surgeon Dr. Core will take advantage of the opportunity to open up your airways if necessary and improve your breathing. This will help you sleep better and can even impact your athletic performance. A nose job is a small price to pay to improve virtually any aspect of the nose.
Nose Surgery Procedure
Nose surgery is done with you asleep and comfortable and generally takes one or two hours. There are no visible scars because Dr. Core preforms all work from the inside of the nose. Dr. Core uses a tiny “z” incision under the nose. After surgery, a splint is placed on your nose, providing the best protection for the new shape, and a nasal pad is often fitted into each nostril for support.
Post- Surgery Recovery
You will be up and around a day or two after your reshaping surgery. During the recovery from a nose job in Alabama, any pain you feel can be controlled by medication. You can place cold compresses on your eyes to reduce swelling and bruising. The nasal packing comes out in a couple of days, and the splint comes off in less than a week.
After a rhinoplasty or septoplasty reshaping, recovery will include bruising around your eyes. This will start to fade after a couple of days and disappears totally within a few weeks. Most people return to work within a week or so, with makeup covering any remaining procedure bruises.
There will be subtle swelling of the nose, which slowly subsides over time. Therefore, you may not see the final results from your rhinoplasty or septoplasty until after few weeks, or even months, of procedure recovery.
Usually the changes to your post-surgery nose are not drastic and will improve your appearance without drawing attention to your nose. However, if your nose was very large and if Dr. Core removed a hump of considerable size for reshaping, then the results from a nose job will be immediate and dramatic.
Unlike some procedures which offer only temporary improvements, quality nasal reshaping surgery lasts forever. You will look your best, and feel better, for the rest of your life.
