Frequently asked questions about Charlotte rhinoplasty
Will my insurance or Medicare cover a Charlotte rhinoplasty?
Only if it’s done to fix a medical problem like a deviated septum. Otherwise you’ll have to pay for it out of your own pocket.
What steps should I take before a Charlotte rhinoplasty?
Stop smoking for a couple of weeks before the surgery, and don’t take any aspirin, ibuprofen, vitamin E or herbal supplements. Cut back on salt the day before the surgery.
How likely is a Charlotte rhinoplasty to fail, and why might it fail?
If you have a Charlotte rhinopasty, the odds are in your favor. About 90 percent of those who have a rhinoplasty done are satisfied with the work, and only about one in thirty actually needs to be revised.
Sometimes an inexperienced surgeon will make a mistake estimating the thickness of the skin or the strength of the cartilage. Other times, the patient catches a cold or has an accident while their nose is still recovering.
Sometimes things go wrong during recovery. The patient may catch a cold or have an accident while their nose is still fragile, or they may strain themselves and raise the blood pressure in their head. Or the new nose might just be the wrong shape for the patient’s face, as happens with surgeons who only know how to do one kind of nose.
If I don’t like my Charlotte rhinoplasty, what can I do about it?
An especially skilled surgeon in Charlotte NC can perform a revision rhinoplasty. You should wait until about a year after the first surgery to have this done.
