Nose job to get a smaller nose in Charlotte NC
A nose job to get a smaller nose is something that both men and women sometimes want. On average, men’s noses are 10 percent larger than women’s noses, a change that happens at puberty. This is one reason why boys shouldn’t get nose jobs until they’re at least 17.
There are other differences between men’s faces and women’s that make a difference in rhinoplasty. The skin on a man’s nose tends to be thicker and more oily, and the features underneath less delicate. This makes surgery harder, but also leaves a little more margin for error.
A nose job to get a smaller nose (as opposed to a nose of a slightly different shape) is likely to be an open rhinoplasty, the most thorough kind of rhinoplasty and the one that takes longest to recover from. So during the first two to three days following the surgery, drink plenty of fluids and get lots of sleep, keeping your head elevated with a pillow. For the next couple of weeks, don’t wear pullover sweaters or any other garment that puts pressure on your nose when you put it on. Take your temperature every so often, since fever is a sign of infection. Be sure to keep avoiding cigarettes, aspirin and so on until you’re healed.
