NOSE JOB

The nose surgery is an outpatient procedure, it is probably one of the most common facial surgeries since the nose is the most visible organ in the face and plays a crucial role in facial expressions. A nose with humps, depressions on the bridge, low nose tip, or with a bridge too wide make the face look less refined.

This surgery can change the entire nose, or only the tip depending on its shape. Keep in mind that every person is different and the goal will always be to find the harmony and balance for your specific face type. The rhinoplasty is done for many reasons; it can be cosmetic or to correct a nasal trauma or a previous surgery. In any case, the surgery will cover the functional and cosmetic elements.

During the rhinoplasty consultation we assess if there are internal alterations that compromised the nose bridge, nasal conchae, etc to treat these conditions as well during the surgery and obtain both, cosmetic and functional results.

People over 16 years old are ideal candidates for this procedure. This surgery is also ideal for people with an excellent health condition, no mental or psychological problems and with a positive, realistic outlook on the results.

Most of the patients do not experience any complications derived from this surgery; however, make sure you go over the following possible complications with your surgeon during the consultation to make sure you understand the risks associated with the rhynoplasty Infections after this procedure are rare. If it happens, the patient might require additional antibiotic and surgical treatment.

Poor wound scarring is another rare risk. These scars can show a different color from the skin and be noticeable. The patient might need supplementary treatments including additional surgeries to treat this complication. The wound healing depends on the body’s process and it is not responsibility of the surgeon in any case.

1. All your questions and concerns must have been resolved by your surgeon.

2. 10 days before the surgery, you cannot take any anti-inflammatory, aspirins, omega 3, 6 or 9, or vitamin E. These medications might increase the risk of bleeding.

3. You cannot have cold symptoms.

4. You need to arrange for someone to pick you up at the clinic after the procedure

This surgery lasts from 2 to 3 hours. It is done with general anesthesia for a full rhynoplasty, or local anesthesia and intravenous sedation if the procedure involves only the tip.

The procedure focuses on modifying the nose shape by removing, adding or fracturing bone cartilage. Usually, we use a close procedure doing all the incisions inside the nose. However, if it is necessary to reduce the nostrils, correct post-cleft lip, cleft palate surgeries’ scars, or correct facial traumas caused by accidents, we need to use an open procedure with small incisions outside the nose, which are inconspicuous after some months.

In most cases, a splint or packing is inserted in your nose and bandages placed outside your nose. The packing is removed 48 hours after surgery and the bandages some days later. A discrete swelling and bruises can happen in the cheekbones and lower eyelids, which will start to subside after day 5.

  • Apply cold compresses during the first three days Apply warm compresses after day 3
  • Do not use glasses during the first four days after surgery
  • Avoid physically demanding activities during the first week after surgery.
  • Do not exposure directly to the sun and use sunblock during the first three months after the surgery.
  • Sleep with a pillow at 45° for the first three nights after the surgery.
  • Also, remember that it is very important to attend your post-op checkups, take the medications prescribed and have between 5 and 6 post-op massages in our wellness center.

4 days However, keep in mind that:

  • Patients who live in other cities of Colombia or abroad must stay in the city for: 12-15 days
  • Removal of stitches: 12 days after the surgery
  • Post-op appointments: every 3 days, they can be done via skype (J-gil79)

Testimonials

My name is Liz Duarte, I am 25 years old. All my life, I experienced criticism due to visible humps in my bridge and the huge nostrils. I felt really self-conscious about it. I heard about Dr. Gil through my boss who had various procedures done with him and spoke really highly of the service and the results. One day, I called to find out about costs and payment methods, the information I received was very complete, and so I asked for a consultation. Dr. Gil requested some lab exams and a consult with the anesthesiologist. A week later, I had my surgery. I must admit the recovery was a little painful because it was my first surgery ever. The bruises disappeared little by little. The post-surgery recommendations are very important to follow.

Right now, my nose is perfect and I receive many compliments. Dr. Gil knows what he is doing and he does it very well.
