Nose surgery can help people feel more confident
Nose surgery can help Charlotte, NC residents feel more confident in their appearance. Everybody has a feature or two they don’t like and would change, whether it be on your face or elsewhere on your body. People who feel their nose is too crooked, too big, or their nostrils are too wide, may elect to have nose surgery to correct these flaws, and in turn, improve their self esteem.

Your doctor will make incisions inside the nose
To reshape your nose, your doctor will typically make an incision on the inside of the nose, hiding any potential scarring. They will then alter and manipulate the bone and cartilage to create the nose you desire. Your doctor will make an incision in the area that separates the nostrils if they are working on the nostrils, or need to make an additional incision to accomplish their task.

You will experience bruising and swelling after nose surgery
Once you’re done with your nose surgery, you’ll be excited to see your results. However, it may be a few weeks, or even months, before you can fully see your results. Your nose will be swollen and bruised immediately following your nose surgery. While this typically goes down within ten to 14 days. However, it is common to experience slight swelling for longer. Your nose will take about a year to fully heal, and then you’ll be able to fully see the results of your procedure.

After surgery, you’ll also want to be careful not to bump or jar your nose until it has started to heal. Try to avoid sneezing after surgery by staying inside and avoiding exposure to allergens. You’ll also want to be careful when putting on or removing clothing that you don’t bump the nose. Consider having a zip up or button up tops to wear around the home for a while. You should also be careful when putting on makeup or glasses as it is easy to hit your nose as you do these things.

Insurance does not typically cover the cost of nose surgery for cosmetic reasons
Once you decide to have nose surgery, you’ll need to start saving up. At your first consultation, ask your doctor how much your surgery will cost, so you have a goal number. Most insurance companies do not cover nose surgery that is done for cosmetic reasons, but may if you have it for medical purposes such as to fix a deviated septum. However, it’s always a good idea to contact your insurance provider to see what they will and will not cover before your procedure.
