Rhinoplasty preparation steps in Charlotte NC

Rhinoplasty preparation is an important part of the process of undergoing rhinoplasty. You are getting a nose job for your own benefit, so you will want to make sure that it goes as smoothly as possible and that the recovery goes well. First, you need to make sure you are very clear in your own mind about what you want — whether it is a smaller nose, a narrower nose, an adjustment to the tip or a straightening of the bridge. The next thing you should do is find a surgeon with a good reputation and a state-of-the-art operating suite. It will help if this surgeon has some way of showing you a three-dimensional model of your face, either using computer imaging or 3D printing, so that you can judge the likely outcome in advance.

Charlotte NC patients doing rhinoplasty preparation should also stop smoking, drinking or taking aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, vitamin E or supplements such as omega-3 fatty acids, fish oil, garlic, flaxseed oil and ginkgo 07 supplements. Nicotine causes blood vessels to constrict, which slows healing. That means no e-cigarettes or nicotine gun either.

If you wear glasses, plan to do without them as part of rhinoplasty preparation. You should also plan to be alone for a while, so as to limit the risk of contracting a respiratory ailment, and to avoid allergens. This would be the worst possible time to start sneezing.
