When you need to get a nose job fixed
About one in thirty rhinoplasty patients ends up needing to get a nose job fixed. Sometimes this happens when an inexperienced surgeon makes a mistake when estimating the thickness of a patient’s nasal skin or the strength of the cartilage underneath. Sometimes the surgeon only knows how to give a patient one kind of nose, whether it suits the face or not — or he or she gives the patient exactly what was asked for without mentioning that it wouldn’t look good. And sometimes something goes wrong during the healing process, when the nose is most fragile.
The good news is that if you need to get a nose job fixed, there are facial plastic surgeons who have the skills necessary to perform a revision rhinoplasty — a more complicated and difficult procedure, since it’s being done on more fragile tissues. The bad news is that you’ll have to wait at least a year after the initial surgery to have the revision done. But this does give you a lot of time to find a facial plastic surgeon in Charlotte NC with the right set of skills.
After you get a nose job fixed, be sure to follow all the surgeon’s advice on taking care of yourself during recovery. Take your pain medication and antibiotics, drink plenty of fluids and get lots of sleep, keeping your head elevated. For the next few weeks, try to avoid hard exercise or anything that might give you a cold.
