Rhinoplasty Before and After

As one of our most defining facial features, the nose is crucial to the way we look and feel, as well as the way in which the world perceives us.  For this reason, when we don’t feel comfortable with our nose, it can be extremely damaging to our self-esteem and mental health, and even our physical health.  It is therefore essential that rhinoplasty or a ‘nose job’ or ‘nose reshaping’ be conducted by an expert cosmetic surgeon with plenty of experience, but also one who understands that this type of facial cosmetic surgery is the most delicate and that any alterations must both protect and enhance the aesthetic of the patient’s face in the long-term.  Dr. Bizrah has one of the world’s strongest track records in rhinoplasty surgery, thanks to his decades of experience and unique, innovative approach. He understands the crucial nature of facial plastic surgery, particularly when it comes to rhinoplasty, and is an expert at conducting surgical treatment for both the internal structure of the nose and aesthetic adaptations.

What is a Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty, or a ‘nose job’, is the branch of facial cosmetic surgery concerned with how your nose effects the harmony of your face, whether that requires proportional changes, symmetrical shifts, corrections to mitigate the impact of an injury or the repairment of structural defects that may present in the form of breathing issues. Rhinoplasty is performed to change the bone, cartilage, skin or all of the three. This nose reshaping procedure is carried out by Dr Bizrah in an organized approach to achieve your goals.

It is therefore essential that rhinoplasty or a ‘nose job’ or ‘nose reshaping’ be conducted by an expert cosmetic surgeon with plenty of experience, but also one who understands that this type of facial cosmetic surgery is the most delicate and that any alterations must both protect and enhance the aesthetic of the patient’s face in the long-term.  Dr. Bizrah has one of the world’s strongest track records in rhinoplasty surgery, thanks to his decades of experience and unique, innovative approach.

Rhinoplasty has become an essential cosmetic surgery for various reasons. According to BAAPS (London, UK) annual audit report for 2019-2020, despite covid crisis, a total 1,994 number of Rhinoplasty surgeries were performed in the UK. Nevertheless, our London clinic witnessed a 70% rise in consultation requests in 2020.

If you choose to opt for rhinoplasty to further improve your appearance (cosmetic purposes) rather than to improve your health, it is best to wait until your nasal bone is completely developed. On the other hand, if you’re getting rhinoplasty surgery on account of a breathing disability it can be performed at a younger age.

While some cosmetic procedures require an upgrade after several or more years, this is not true for a rhinoplasty. A good rhinoplasty will last you a lifetime and thus it is important to opt for a good and trustworthy doctor like Dr Bizrah.

How long does rhinoplasty surgery take?

There is no fixed rhinoplasty procedure time as it includes the total time taken for the anesthetics to set in coupled with the main procedure itself. However, the overall time to complete the procedure may vary from patient to patient. It depends on the type of rhinoplasty being performed, with additional nasal procedures required, if any. The skills of your surgeon and his surgical team play an important role as well. In this regard, with more than two decades of experience, Dr Bizrah performs even complex nose jobs with minimum hassle.

In Dr Bizrah’s hand, Rhinoplasty even complicated one takes from 30-60 mins under local anesthesia with IV sedation. While open rhinoplasty takes a longer time period, closed rhinoplasty takes less time. When it comes to recovery, it can take up to 8-10 days.

If the surgery involves dealing with many complications such as bleeding or anesthesia effects, it may take a little longer. Dr Bizrah makes sure his guidance helps patients for a speedy recovery with good results.

However, suppose you want to know how long does rhinoplasty take for an abnormal nose. In that case, you must know that the rhinoplasty surgery time is independent of the shape of the nasal abnormalities as long as they are of mild to moderate proportions. Conditions like mild asymmetry, dorsal hump, drooping and prominent nasal tip are performed through closed rhinoplasty and take less time. In comparison, open rhinoplasty procedures like correcting traumatic nasal deformities and airway problems take a longer time.

It is important to understand that each nose is unique and that significantly impacts the rhinoplasty surgery time.

Those who want to know how long is the recovery after a nose job must realize that no one can better answer this question than the doctor himself. The recovery time depends on the quality of your skin, your healing capacity, and postoperative complications if any. Though postoperative complications could be a  rare occurrence, it should be managed carefully for a satisfactory outcome. Dr Bizrah compares rhinoplasty before and after pics to suggest the best course of action for a speedy recovery.



Is Rhinoplasty or Nose reshaping surgery in London safe?

It is apparent for anyone looking for a nose job to look for answers such as "is a nose job safe?" or "is rhinoplasty dangerous for old patients?" or "How risky is a nose job when you've certain pre-existing medical conditions?", etc. These doubts surface from the core understanding that there are fair chances of rhinoplasty going wrong due to various reasons, including wrong analysis or misreading any alarming body parameters during initial diagnosis. That's why Dr Bizrah puts 80% of his effort into assessment and planning rather than surgery to make sure his patients would never have to regret their decision to have rhinoplasty in the first place.

Like every invasive surgery, a nose job is performed under general anesthesia and is a relatively safe procedure. Like any other surgical procedure, it has its share of risks and complications.

Rhinoplasty safety can be achieved to a great extent by choosing a skilled surgeon who has a lot of experience in performing complex cases with ease. He and his skilled team could ensure that your surgery goes without a hitch and keep monitoring your body parameters like pulse, blood pressure, and heart rate throughout the surgery.

What is the recovery time for rhinoplasty?

Recovery from a nose job can take a few months or extend upto a year. Recovering from rhinoplasty is not a one-time process as it takes place in stages irrespective of the type of rhinoplasty you opted for. You can notice a gradual improvement in your condition throughout different rhinoplasty recovery stages. You can return to your work 2 weeks after surgery.

In the first week of the rhinoplasty recovery timeline, you can expect a slight relief from the inflammation over the nose as well as the areas surrounding it. The splint surrounding the nose is removed during this time or in the second week, depending on your rate of recovery. 4-5 weeks after the surgery, you are scheduled for your second follow-up. Depending on your skin texture, your inflammation will have subsided almost completely by this time. Around the 3rd or 4th month of your nose job healing process, your nose will take its final shape. Within six months, it will achieve its final shape.

Rhinoplasty healing time can vary from person to person depending on your skin quality and other systemic conditions. Oily skin, bruised prone skin and an overall thicker skin can prolong your recovery period. It is advisable to avoid certain medications like blood thinners, NSAIDs, and herbal medications before and 2 weeks after the surgery for a quick recovery after rhinoplasty. Taking care of the sutures and timely intake of medications can help in narrowing down nose job recovery time to a considerable extent. For effective recovery of a nose job, it is important to have a healthy lifestyle with the intake of regular fluids. Dr Bizrah makes sure his patients recover fast with timely follow-up and guided lifestyle.

 

Does nose job surgery leave scars that are permanent?

When a closed rhinoplasty is performed, there is no visible scarring. When an open rhinoplasty is performed, small scars on the base of the nose might be there. However, over time, they will subside and be virtually not visible.

Can Functional Rhinoplasty correct breathing problems?

Rhinoplasty is the term used for nose modification either in a superficial manner or through extensive reshaping and modifications of the nasal bones and the cartilages. Usually, most patients look for rhinoplasty in London and beyond for cosmetic reasons, i.e., to modify a wide nasal bridge to correct the hump or tip of a deformed nose. But sometimes, rhinoplasty is performed to correct physiological problems, such as a narrow nostril resulting in insufficient airflow or obstructions in the nasal pathway. In this regard, while looking for the best alternatives, patients often wonder about the efficacy of rhinoplasty to correct breathing problems.

Referred to as Functional Rhinoplasty, this nose job can correct a deviated septum, congenital disorder, narrow nasal bridge, and nasal tumors or nasal polyps. All of these problems hinder airflow to a mild to a moderate extent. The disrupted airflow results in excessive snoring and sleep apnea. This hampers the sleep cycles of the patient and results in daytime sleepiness and other symptoms like fatigue, inability to concentrate, and irritability.

These, in turn, affect the social and psychological well-being of the person and result in anxiety issues mounting up to depressive tendencies. The nasal passages, along with enabling airflow, ensure that the air that goes inside is purified as well. Frequent obstruction to the nasal passage results in a nasal infection that can be symptomatic. These can also inflame the sinus, resulting in one-sided facial swelling and pain. Though rare sometimes, any past rhinoplasty surgery performed in an incompetent manner may also result in excessive loss of cartilage. This causes the sides of the nose to collapse during inhalation resulting in breathing problems. That’s why it is always imperative to look for an experienced surgeon in London while going for such a sensitive nose job. Usually, medications and CPAP machines are the first lines of action, and it is when these methods produce unfavorable results is when Functional Rhinoplasty is advised. Dr Bizrah has a wide experience of managing such complex cases for his patients from London and beyond with ease.

Functional rhinoplasty can correct this problem by surgically grafting cartilage from behind and inside the ears into these peripheral portions to enable normal breathing. Through this reshaping procedure, enlarged turbinates can also be improved. Nasal turbinates are the long narrow passageways that moisten the air flowing through the nose. Enlarged turbinates can lead to turbinate hypertrophy, which can result in nasal occlusion.

This nose job procedure is performed under general anesthesia. So, the patient has nothing to worry about. Prior to the procedure, the surgeon marks the area and takes the measurements with pre-surgery photographs for comparison later. The nasal bones are either surgically modified or removed and restructured for obtaining the desired results. Cartilage is either added to the nasal region or removed from it, depending on the patient's type of defect and requirement. Post completion of the nose job, after the effects of your anesthetics have worn off, you can go home the same day accompanied by an attendee. In this regard, Dr. Bizrah’s London clinic is equipped with all modern modalities for a hassle-free rhinoplasty procedure.

Post-surgery, during the initial days, you will not feel any difference. The inflammation accompanied by the soreness will be at its peak during this time. After the inflammation has subsided and the nasal splint removed, you will notice symptomatic changes within a few weeks. The breathing will be easier. Activities related to breathing like walking and exercising will have more endurance. The sleep apnea and the snoring problem will be solved. This will improve your social and psychological well-being and positively impact your overall being.

Sometimes, Functional rhinoplasty is performed in combination with other surgeries for best results. For example, a deviated septum that causes nasal obstruction is modified with a combination procedure of Septoplasty and Rhinoplasty for best results. Similarly, a cleft lip or palate could be accomplished by rhinoplasty and lip surgery together to produce satisfactory results.

He has a wide experience of practicing over 38,000+ successful surgeries in rhinoplasty in London and beyond.

What are the Rhinoplasty Swelling stages and healing time?

Rhinoplasty or nose job is mostly an invasive procedure conducted using general anaesthetics. It is either performed to better the aesthetic appeal of the nose or to facilitate breathing problems caused by defective nasal structures. Rhinoplasty surgery takes 1-2 hours, depending on the amount of reshaping required by your nasal frame. On being combined with Septoplasty or other combination procedures, the time taken for completion of the nose job procedure increases with an increase in the healing period. The swelling after rhinoplasty is not a constant parameter and varies from one patient to another. The healing period post rhinoplasty depends on the quality of your skin and the amount of reshaping done- moderate or extensive. That’s why it is imperative to go for the best surgeon whether you’re looking for rhinoplasty in London or beyond. In this regard, Dr Bizrah is one of the best cosmetic surgeons for offering bespoke rhinoplasty in London and all over the world. The number of success stories from his London clinic alone- the London Surgical Suites- is enough to speak highly of his mastery over the nose job procedure.

Different parts of the nose have different structures that decide the extent of swelling. For instance, the tip of the nose contains soft tissue that is thick and sebaceous and densely adherent to the underlying cartilage. In comparison, the bridge of the nose contains very little tissue and mostly cartilage. This results in longer-lasting inflammation in the lower half of the skin post rhinoplasty than in the upper half. The bridge of the nose regains its original structure in much less time than the tip of the nose that can take upto 6 months to heal completely. Feel free to ask your doctor to let you know more about this before deciding to go with a clinic in London or somewhere else.

Sometimes on the 3rd or 4th day post reshaping, the swelling gets little more before getting better. This is because of the skin quality of the person and the reaction of the body to cope up with the wound healing post rhinoplasty. The initial swelling lasts for about 10 days post nose job. During this time, the inflammation is at its peak with bruising and soreness. With due pre rhinoplasty precautions, this gradually subsides. Within three to four weeks of the rhinoplasty surgery, your inflammation will have subsided to a considerable extent. You can rejoin your work activities at this time. A bit of inflammation at the tip will be present, but it will be too insignificant for anyone else apart from yourself and your surgeon to know the difference.

Within three months of your rhinoplasty surgery, the healing would have been mostly complete. You will begin to notice the results by this time. But it will take almost a year for the nose to reshape back to the desired symmetry.

After your anaesthetic effects wear off, you can go home but with someone to drive. The grogginess will be there with swelling, bandages and nasal splint around the nose. As per the advice of the surgeon, you will need to apply ice packs and ointments around the nasal portion while sleeping in an elevated position to bring down the inflammation. A week after the rhinoplasty surgery, sutures will be removed along with the nose splint. The breathing and the inflammation will improve considerably by this time period. The bruising around the nose will subside gradually. You will notice it changing colour from black to a greenish and yellowish tinge before completely disappearing. In this regard, it is imperative to go for the best clinic in London with advanced modalities to support you with any auxiliary secondary treatments to aid your fast recovery process. 

Two weeks after the surgery, you can resume your cardio workout, and by the 6th week, you can wear your glasses as your nose will be strong enough by now to handle the weight. The loss of smell sensation in the nasal region will still be apparent. This will recover between the third and sixth months of the rhinoplasty surgery. A year after the nose job, your tip of the nose will have completely healed. Any repositioned cartilage will be confined to the new nasal shape, and the swelling will have gone down completely. Patients who opt for rhinoplasty in London under Dr Bizrah remain assured to be guided with the best post-surgery practice to overcome such challenges with ease.

It is natural of you still to have doubts and unanswered questions regarding the nose job. We suggest you book a consultation with Dr Bizrah at his London clinic or schedule an online appointment to get all the answers you’re looking for before going for rhinoplasty in London.

 

 

 

Liquid Rhinoplasty v/s Surgical Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is an advanced nose job procedure that involves various methods to achieve a cosmetically perfected or restructured nose. But before you go for rhinoplasty in London or somewhere else, it's imperative to know the difference between liquid and surgical rhinoplasty, as you may often hear these terms from your surgeon during your initial consultation.

Liquid Rhinoplasty is a non-invasive method of nose modification. It is used to address minor nose reshaping with the effects lasting for a temporary period. Hyaluronic acid is used as a filler in cases of liquid rhinoplasty and injected strategically to obtain nose contouring. It requires more expertise and care especially when performed in recurring rhinoplasty cases. The injections need to be administered by an experienced surgeon as the risk of complications is higher in this case.

This nose job procedure involves using Hyaluronic acid as a filler to be injected strategically to obtain nose contouring. Any complications during liquid rhinoplasty can result in skin necrosis, vascular complications, and even blindness. Injections or fillers result in augmentation of the nose. This makes liquid rhinoplasty an unsuitable option for people with large noses as this will further enlarge their nose. Additionally, the risk of filler migration resulting in the filler particles migrating to other parts of the face is more in this case. Filler migration tends to accumulate in other areas of the nose thus impacting the aesthetic look.

Now let's discuss surgical rhinoplasty. It is a more extensive nose job procedure performed to modify the nasal region. It may be performed to attain the best cosmetic or reshaping result and is done under general anaesthesia. Sometimes, surgical rhinoplasty is performed to modify a deviated septum or remove a nasal polyp or tumour that are causing breathing difficulties to the patient. This procedure removes birth defects, nasal humps, injuries and sometimes tumours. Surgical rhinoplasty can be either primary or secondary or open or closed. Primary rhinoplasty is the first-ever surgery performed on the nose for modification purposes. When this nose job is done for the second time, or subsequently after the first time, it is referred to as secondary rhinoplasty. Before you choose any clinic in London, make sure the surgeon walks you through all this basic information to help you make an informed decision. In this regard, Dr Bizrah is the number one favourite when it comes to finding the best surgeon for surgical rhinoplasty in London. With more than two decades of experience in nose job surgery, he has mastered the art of seamless rhinoplasty that draws patients from London and beyond.

Surgical rhinoplasty can be opted for cosmetic purposes to help deal with conditions like nasal asymmetry, increased nose width at the bridge, large or deformed nostrils or unnatural nose size in relation to the rest of the face. On the other hand, functional rhinoplasty is more directed towards correcting physiological defects of the nose that cause breathing problems or other body disorders. Sometimes functional rhinoplasty is combined with other surgical procedures like Septoplasty or cleft palate reshaping (especially in babies) to improve the candidate's overall survival rate. Before selecting any clinic in London, ask your doctor regarding all these options to stay informed about the possibilities.

Surgical rhinoplasty is considered an open procedure or external rhinoplasty if the nasal skin is involved as folded upward. The aim of folding the nasal skin is to allow better visibility of the other nasal structures. Through open rhinoplasty, there is a minimum distortion of the nasal cartilage. Additionally, there is minimal disturbance to the individual components of the nasal skeleton. In closed rhinoplasty or endonasal, the incisions are made on the inside of the nostrils. This method is suitable for people who want minimal changes made to their noses during the modification. The inflammation and the healing period are both considerably less in this method. All of the surgical rhinoplasty procedures are performed under general anaesthesia. The sutures are either self-absorbed or removed within a week or so of the procedure. The recovery period takes no more than 10-14 days, and the results once obtained are permanent. All it takes is the presence of an experienced surgeon coupled with the best clinical modalities to recover fast without much hassle. In this regard, London Surgical Suites tops the list of ideal rhinoplasty clinics in London.

There is still more information out there to understand which rhinoplasty method is best for you. If you have been looking for answers to such important questions before going for rhinoplasty in London, book a consultation with Dr Bizrah today! Apart from his local London patients, he also receives a huge number of requests for surgical rhinoplasty all over the world.

 

 

When can I resume exercise or the gym after Rhinoplasty?

When can I resume exercise or the gym after Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty involving the relatively smaller nasal structure, it is easy to assume that normal activities can be resumed immediately after surgery. But this statement is a misnomer. In reality, the nasal structure is cartilaginous in origin, and that already in a fragile condition after surgery can be further damaged on careless handling post the nose job. Additionally, instead of being a nuclear organ, the nose is connected to the rest of the body. Overwork or exercise just after completion of the nose job can increase the heart and pulse rate of the body. This can, in turn, affect the raw incisions and lead to loosening of the sutures, rupturing of the sutured spots, bleeding, and other complications, impacting the end results of rhinoplasty. While choosing a clinic in London, make sure the surgeon walks you through all these important things for sure. In this regard, Dr. Bizrah is highly sought-after amongst patients for rhinoplasty in London and beyond. He always makes sure his patients know what lies ahead post nose job so that they can mentally prepare themselves accordingly.

Dr. Bizrah advises his patients to resume exercises or gym post rhinoplasty in phases. The first week after rhinoplasty, you can resume light walks. These walks are necessary for the sense they enable proper blood circulation. But they should be done in a limited amount around your house and not extended beyond 20-25 minutes. The swelling and bruising post nose job will be at the peak during the first 3-5 days and will gradually begin reducing by the 7th day. So overexertion and even sweating can affect inflammation reduction. And your painkiller effects would also make you groggy and at times disoriented because resting, light walks, and staying hydrated are the best recommended options during the first week of post rhinoplasty.

In the second week after rhinoplasty, your nasal splint will be removed depending on the rate of inflammation reduction. Stitches, if any, will be removed during this time period, and absorbable in nature will dissolve by themselves. You can withhold even your normal walking schedule.

With more than two decades of experience in rhinoplasty in London and beyond, Dr. Bizrah knows what works best to make his patients feel up and working even during the first few weeks post rhinoplasty. He advises following a restricted healthy lifestyle to quicken the healing process post nose job. For example, Dr. Bizrah advises his patients to rest with their heads in an elevated position all day and consume only liquid or soft food so as to avoid any pressure on the nasal region. A day or two after the splint and sutures have been removed, the patient can slowly increase the duration of light physical activities. When you opt for rhinoplasty in London under Dr. Bizrah, you rest assured of receiving such best advice for a quick recovery.

You can start light cardio during this time, like cycling, and add some light exercises to your schedule. But all of these have to be light in intensity, and it is not advisable to lift heavy weights or resume swimming during this time period. Apart from walking, even jogging or running should not be preferred as they can increase the risk of falling and injuring the already sensitive nose.

During the third to the fifth week of rhinoplasty, you may gradually increase the intensity of your workouts. From lifting lightweight to moderate cardio, exercises of moderate intensities can be gradually increased during this time period keeping in mind not to overexert yourself. You cannot wear protective or any kind of eyewear during this time period as your nasal bridge may be at risk. That’s why it is best to avoid intense workouts involving boxing, running, and fast cycling. You can also resume yoga at this point, keeping in mind to avoid any poses requiring extra bending of the face or abnormal positioning of the nose. Breathe in and breathe out gently, keeping in mind the fragile condition of the nose. Do not overexert yourself during this time period. If you feel exhausted or overexerted in any way, discontinue them or decrease their intensity at your convenience.

By the 6th week of rhinoplasty, your nasal bridge would have become strong enough to hold a pair of glasses. Heavyweights, swimming, aerobic exercises, and other high-intensity exercises can be resumed at this point. But care has to be taken in wearing a face mask while playing football, soccer, or basketball. Tennis players can resume tennis playing at this point as well with proper protection towards the face and nasal structure.

Recovery from nose reshaping is a gradual process. Its intensity varies from person to person depending on a lot of factors such as skin structure, the intensity of rhinoplasty correction, and post-operative lifestyle. Some people can heal faster, while others can take a longer time period to get back to routine activities. However, with the right guidance, the patient can pursue light exercises till reaching his full potential. That’s where the role of London Surgical Suites becomes imperative. With Dr. Bizrah to guide you from his 20+ years of experience, the whole recovery period will feel like a cakewalk to you.

If you are planning for rhinoplasty in London, get a physical consultation with Dr. Bizrah at London Surgical Suites and let him walk you through the entire process of rhinoplasty to help you make an informed decision. If you reside outside London, you can also opt for an online consultation to get your doubts clear before moving into the next set of procedures.

 

 

 

How long do I need to take off from work after Rhinoplasty surgery?

Rhinoplasty or nose job is a fairly invasive procedure performed for cosmetic or reconstructive purposes. Often rhinoplasty is done with the aim of reshaping a healthy nose for aesthetic purposes. But sometimes, the nose job is also performed to rectify the damage caused by a blow or traumatic impact to the nose in any way. Either way, post rhinoplasty, you need to take time off for a few days to enable proper healing of the operated area and ensure a better outcome of the nose job. The exact time limit of taking time is not the same for everyone and varies from case to case. A number of factors like the type of rhinoplasty, the treatment plan of the surgeon, and the time taken by the complications, if any, to resolve post-surgery are some of a few factors that determine the time taken to rest and be off work.

Dr. Bizrah advises his patients to give two weeks of the ideal time period for the rhinoplasty surgery to show the best results. In cases of rhinoplasty involving minor reshaping, you can get back to work in as less as 7-8 days. But in excessive reshaping cases, the inflammation takes a long time to recede, because of which around 7-15 days are required till you can get back to work. The inflammation is at its highest peak after the first 7 days of rhinoplasty. Additionally, you are groggy because of the residual effects of the anesthetics, and the effects of painkillers and other medications advised to you after the nose job. It is important to rest as much as possible during this time to allow the inflammation to subside in the best possible manner. The inflammation starts subsiding with the blackened portion changing into a yellowish hue before completely resolving by the second week. The dissolvable sutures are no longer that evident, and the less vascular portions of the nose are already returning back to their normal proportions. In this regard, Dr. Bizrah offers a pre-counseling to all his patients coming for rhinoplasty in London to his clinic London Surgical Suites. The aim is always to make the patients be aware of the little challenges lying ahead so that they can prepare themselves accordingly.

You can get back to work after the cast is removed and the sutures are dissolved. The swelling at the tip will still be present but in such a manner that only you or your surgeon can discern the swelling. During this time period, the incision marks of the nose job, if prominent, can be hidden by makeup. But you cannot wear spectacles and, if required, will need to wear contact lenses to avoid any pressure on the nose. If required, change your diet to soft food and drink lots of healthy fluids during this time so as to enable better healing. It is important to understand that after nose cast removal post rhinoplasty, the healing continues up to 3-4 months, albeit subtly. After joining work, you have to take a number of precautions to enable the nose to heal in the best possible manner and avoid any postoperative complications. If your job involves frequent commutation within or outside London, it is better to curb all those activities until a favorable period comes.

If you work from home, you can get back to work within a week of rhinoplasty and work while taking the required precautions at home. If you have a mostly desk work job, you can get back to work on the 16th-17th day of rhinoplasty. You will need to avoid any kind of strenuous activity or overexerting yourself. You will also be required to avoid the sun and other places like swimming pools, beaches, and sauna centers for the next 2 months till the healing is complete. Suppose you are in a job that requires moderate to severe physical activities. In that case, it is best to wait for at least 3-4 weeks after the rhinoplasty to rejoin work or schedule your nose job surgery accordingly as per your work requirements. If your profession centers around your physical appearance, you will need to consider that the tip of the nose will continue to heal and change in appearance for the next 3-4 months after rhinoplasty. Even after rejoining work, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle and take care of the nose to ensure lasting results.

It is common for anyone to face more of such doubts before opting for rhinoplasty. In this regard, if you have been looking for rhinoplasty in London, let Dr. Bizrah be your ideal guide. You can pay him a visit to his London clinic- the London Surgical Suites- for a detailed face-to-face discussion. In case you are from outside London but want to have rhinoplasty in London, you can go for an online consultation with Dr. Bizrah before finally moving into London for rhinoplasty.

 

 

 

How long after Rhinoplasty can I wear glasses?

If you wear prescription glasses, it is imperative to know the answer to this question before you sign up for rhinoplasty in London. At London Surgical Suites, we also face the same question from our patients interested in rhinoplasty in London. In order to get to the answer, we have to have a basic understanding of the rhinoplasty procedure.

Rhinoplasty is an invasive procedure in which the nasal structure is modified by variable percentages on the basis of requirements of the patient. People seek a nose job in London to not only improve their aesthetic appearance but also to get rid of bumps and humps in the nose. During your initial consultation for rhinoplasty in London, the doctor will confirm whether it can be performed on its own or in combination with other procedures like Septoplasty or sinus surgeries as per your medical conditions. Either way, the procedure is conducted under general anesthesia. During rhinoplasty, the cartilage and nasal bones are broken down and modified with the addition or removal of tissues for achieving the required look.

Because of the reshaping details, incisions are applied to the nasal region in strategic positions by the surgeon. It takes time after the procedure for these incisions to heal. Consequently, there are a number of restrictions imposed on the patients post-Rhinoplasty to ensure best results with negligible complications. When you go for a nose job in London, the postoperative restrictions chart will confirm how soon you can wear glasses. 

While it is true that you cannot wear your glasses for at least six weeks after the rhinoplasty. However, your surgeon for rhinoplasty in London may follow the rule of providing an exceptionally strong nasal splint. This does the combined job of keeping the changes made by rhinoplasty safe while providing a base for safely putting on the glasses for at least a week after the surgery. Immediately after completion of the modification procedure, a nasal splint made of plastic or metal is placed over your nasal region. These are mostly made of plastic or silicone. Sometimes, aluminium splints are used, especially when the patient is heavily dependent on glasses. It allows time to wear glasses before resorting to contact wears or other visual aids for the time period. Dr. Bizrah clearly explains all these options to his patients coming for a nose job in London.

Splints apart from keeping the swelling to a minimum do the additional job of allowing patients to wear their spectacles. Your surgeon may advise you to opt for Teflon or Thermoplastic splints for best results after your Rhinoplasty in London. But the splints are only there for a week or two. It is important that you get used to wearing your contact lenses during this time period because after the splint is removed, the old school advice is not to wear your glasses for the next 3-4 weeks. However, according to Dr Bizrah you can wear your glasses 5 days post-surgery if no bone work & in case of full rhinoplasty 10 days post-surgery provided patients are advised to wear very light glasses.

The surgeon's treatment plan and the amount of reshaping planned decide how soon you would be able to wear your glasses. But the refractive status of your eyes, the frame of the glass you are wearing, and your comfort with contact lens usage also play important roles. If the modifications are mild and your surgeon has not placed a nasal splint, it is best to wait for 1-2 weeks for the bridge of the nose to get stronger post your rhinoplasty in London. After that time period, you can wear glasses like normal days. But if the modifications are intense and the reshaping is extensive, your doctor may advise you to avoid putting any pressure on the nose for at least six weeks of the surgery. It is better to clear all these doubts during your initial consultation with doctors for a nose job in London.

To minimise chances of discomfort, have a detailed discussion with your surgeon regarding your ocular history and based on that, plan your rhinoplasty. Sometimes, clinics may advise you for laser eye surgery to remove any vision related obstacles before signing you up for rhinoplasty in London. Laser surgery is a less invasive procedure and especially useful in patients with high refractive errors requiring drastic nasal reconstruction additionally. In cases of patients with moderate refractive error especially astigmatism or myopic astigmatism, it is usually advised to start wearing contacts at least 3 months prior to the surgery so you can get adjusted to their use.

Usually, rhinoplasty requires you to be extra careful with your nose and follow a number of precautions apart from refrained glass use. Deciding and wearing contacts well before the nose job will minimise a lot of vision and contact related complications after the rhinoplasty procedure. Wearing your contacts beforehand will also enable you to understand whether or not a particular brand of contacts can be opted for use or you need to switch to a different brand with softer quality lenses. This seemingly unimportant is actually vital for the success of rhinoplasty as contact lens users report watering of the eyes that can hamper the sutures and even affect the bruising and recovery period.

Wearing the correct contact lenses beforehand that are vision-friendly and do not cause watering or any other symptomatic issues is actually an important preoperative precaution that needs to be looked into prior to rhinoplasty. Suppose by any chance, neither the laser nor contact lenses are applicable for your situation. In that case, there are other visual options that you can resort to like telescopes or digital/electronic magnifiers for a smooth visual acuity till your nose bridge is strong enough for you to allow wearing your glasses. By the 6th week of rhinoplasty, you can start wearing your glasses as the recovery by that time would have been almost complete. But this has to be done as per the advice of the surgeon. You should also remain prepared to put off glass use for a longer time should the need arise. Even then, it is important to wear lightweight frames and refrain from using heavy metal ones.

It is important to understand that the nose, though pretty much recovered, is still sensitive at this time. Inflammation, even if completely subsided on the outside, is still there inside. Metal frames create the additional risk of contact dermatitis that can re-inflame the nasal area and start a new set of complications. Lightweight non-metal frames are best during this time period for a better recovery post your rhinoplasty in London. Additionally, following the spectacle related instructions will ensure less complications and speedy healing with better outcomes after the Rhinoplasty surgery.

If you are still unclear on the subject matter and you are planning to have rhinoplasty in London, have a consultation with Dr Bizrah at London Surgical Suites. Most of his local patients looking for a nose job in London appreciate their initial consultation with Dr. Bizrah as it helps them make a firm decision. However, if you are from a far location and still want to meet Dr. Bizrah for rhinoplasty in London, you can book an online consultation as well.

Can you get Rhinoplasty Surgery if you have a nose or Septum piercing?

Rhinoplasty is an invasive procedure performed by a team of skilled surgeons with a lot of factors affecting its final outcome. Factors like skin type, healing power of the body and presence of systemic conditions are some of the main ones. Nasal or Septal piercing represents nasal cosmetic additions that sometimes get affected by Rhinoplasty surgery. Whether you’re going for the best nose job in London or somewhere else, it requires you to take a lot of precautions regarding your medications, lifestyle conditions and food selections, along with some extra measures for your existing nose or septum piercings. Thus, you must know how it works before signing up for rhinoplasty in London.

If you have a pre-existing piercing, changes made on the bridge or the dorsal hump of the nose will not be affected in any way during Rhinoplasty. Even the tip of the nose can be successfully modified in the presence of nasal and septal holes dedicated for piercing purposes. It is the side and the septal region of the nasal portion that will be challenging to modify. In these cases, consulting the best surgeon for your rhinoplasty in London will help you avoid bad consequences. A skilled surgeon will take proper measurements of the side and septal region and reconstruct the nasal portion in the best possible manner. In this regard, Dr. Bizrah is one of the highly sought-after surgeons for rhinoplasty in Dubai. After successfully dealing with more than 38,000 cases of rhinoplasty in London and beyond, Dr. Bizrah knows how to deal with nose jobs involving nasal or septum piercing.

A surgeon experienced in the piercing aspect of Rhinoplasty in London will take care of the incisions and subsequent cartilage adjustment. His aim will be in modifying the cartilage present in the nasal side in accordance to the preexisting structure created by the effect of piercings. In case of removal of cartilage during the reshaping, he will perform the incisions and subsequent skin removal in a systematic manner to keep the piercing hole intact. In such cases, after the recovery period, the patient can again pierce as per the requirement. In case of addition of cartilage and skin tissues, he will fill up the hole so there is no evidence of a piercing spot post the nose job. Given the sensitive nature of this procedure, it is important to go for an experienced surgeon only for your rhinoplasty in London.

That said, neither open nor closed rhinoplasty procedures are affected by the presence of these holes. In fact, a Rhinoplasty surgery, when performed on its own or in conjunction with other surgical procedures like septoplasty or sinus surgery, is not affected by the presence of these holes. But the metals attached to the piercing holes will need to be removed. Not just nose or Septum piercings, even tongue, eyebrow or any piercing on the face need to be removed before the surgery.

The nasal cartilage being malleable gets further softened during the Rhinoplasty surgery. Presence of any additional pressure like those of the piercings will risk its collapse or shape distortion. This will severely and permanently impact the after results of the nose job. Additionally, the presence of a foreign metal body increases the risk of infection and can lead to serious complications during surgery. Dr. Bizrah ensures all his patients signing up for rhinoplasty in London to know about these aftermaths well.


Even after completion of the Rhinoplasty, surgeons tend to be wary about replacing the metal back into the piercing hole and be extra careful about it. Immediately after a rhinoplasty procedure, your entire nasal region will get inflamed and bruised. It is very sensitive to the touch at this point and sometimes even covered by nasal splints. This makes it impossible to touch the area or replace the piercings back before the inflammation completely subsides. The surgeon may advise you to wait for at least six weeks post surgery before wearing them back. You will be further advised to refrain from wearing light metals instead of heavy ones. Any experienced surgeon for rhinoplasty in London will not only recommend you the ideal time to wear the piercing but also advise you how to prevent risk of infection and any damage to the final results.


Be it septal or nasal piercings, care must be taken in removing them prior to the surgery and wearing them only on the advice of the surgeon after recovery from the Rhinoplasty. Unlike nasal piercings, a septal piercing can sometimes lead to breathing difficulties if the septum is partially blocked and disfigured. In such cases, it is advised to abstain from repiercing the septal portion after completion of Septoplasty for safety purposes.


A lot of patients wait especially for completion of their Rhinoplasty so they can go for nasal and septal piercings. The exact waiting period depends on a number of factors which your doctor will tell you during your initial consultation for a nose job in London. In cases of mild reshaping made in the nasal region, you can go for the piercings within 10-12 weeks of the rhinoplasty procedure. In case of extensive nasal reshaping, surgeons may strictly advise you to wait for at least six months to maximum a year before proceeding forward. During the recovery period, the nose is especially soft and prone to hypersensitivity and infections.


Even excess touching of the nasal portion is discouraged by surgeons for this purpose. Additional pressure in the form of piercings can further accelerate the risk of infections. The cartilage at this point is soft. Any slight modification to it in case of removal of cartilage can cause it to further degrade and affect the final outcome. Additionally, recovery after a rhinoplasty can take even weeks. It takes months and even years for the results to be completely evident after your nose job in London. Getting piercings done before the final results of Rhinoplasty can affect the overall aesthetic look of the nose in the long run.


For people with pre-existing nasal piercings going for Rhinoplasty or for those considering the idea of getting a nasal piercing post their rhinoplasty in London, it is best advised to consult with the surgeon and take his opinion. An experienced surgeon can evaluate the condition of your piercing hole to see whether it is in a healthy condition as well as analyse your overall skin type and allergy predispositions. On the basis of that, he will have the final say on whether you are eligible for the Rhinoplasty surgery or whether you should go for piercings after your nose job in London. The results of Rhinoplasty are semi permanent and prone only to the changes caused by age. Proceeding forward with the piercings while keeping in mind this decision will enable you to strike an aesthetic balance between the nasal and the other facial portions.


If you have more doubts regarding the surgery before finally signing up for rhinoplasty in London, go for a healthy consultation with Dr Bizrah at London Surgical Suites. Dr. Bizrah always prioritises consultation over anything to help his patients looking for a nose job in London take a quick decision. However, if you are from a far location and still want to meet Dr. Bizrah for rhinoplasty in London, you can book an online consultation as well.

This procedure is best suited for patients who require significant changes to the nose. Closed Rhinoplasty is made with small incisions inside the nostrils. This technique has limited to null scarring. This procedure is best suited for patients requiring small changes to the nose or what we call now a “finesse” rhinoplasty. Dr. Bizrah is a pioneer of this technique, having done more than 39,000 rhinoplasty procedures, many of them being closed rhinoplasties.

How long should I wait to receive Revision Rhinoplasty?

Revision Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure opted for correcting or revising a previous rhinoplasty surgery. Some of the factors that could prompt the need for revision rhinoplasty are dissatisfaction with the first attempt, trauma to the reconstructed nose, further enhancement of the nasal structure, etc. It has been postulated through various studies that at least 15% of the total cases require a revision rhinoplasty. The waiting period for the corrective surgery depends on many factors and varies from person to person. However, those who opt for Rhinoplasty in London or Dubai under Dr. Bizrah rarely develop the need for a revision.


Revision Rhinoplasty is performed when you heal from your previous surgery and achieve desired results of your initial nose job. However, the following factors are also important in deciding whether or not you should go for a revision rhinoplasty and when you should go for it.

  • Healing time of your body
  • Scarring induced by the previous surgery
  • Any systemic issue impacting the surgery outcome


Usually, the surgeon advises to wait for at least nine to twelve months after the initial Rhinoplasty, but the timeline for secondary reshaping could be purely case-specific and may vary from one patient to another. Dr. Bizrah often faces such cases in his London and Dubai clinics. But, he prefers to state the requirement for revision rhinoplasty after closely studying the patient's condition on the scale of many parameters as discussed above.


For instance, the type of Rhinoplasty previously conducted affects the waiting period in a significant manner. Closed Rhinoplasty does not correct as extensively as open Rhinoplasty does. The tip of the nose is generally modified in a closed method with subtle changes to the cartilage and other areas. Because of this, the incision wounds and subsequently the inflammation is reversed in a much lesser timespan. Open Rhinoplasty involves extensive correction to the nose, and because of this, the inflammation takes a longer time in subsiding completely. Revision surgery can be conducted in nine months after closed Rhinoplasty.


Swelling subsides differently in different parts of the nose. Swelling in the tip of the nose takes a long time to resolve than swelling in the nasal bridge. Often, a subsiding inflammation in the nose tip is mistaken for a sub-par result, leading to a revisional nose job surgery. However, we have seen many cases in our London clinics where the swelling does resolve completely with time, and the nose job gives the desired results without the need for further reshaping. Despite everything you read here, it is normal to have doubts regarding the same. If so, you should book a physical consultation with Dr. Bizrah regarding your revision of rhinoplasty in London or Dubai.


Sometimes, the need for a revision nose job could become necessary as early as four months within the first surgery. This occurs in cases of problematic breathing resulting due to the first surgery or addressed unsatisfactorily during that time. In these cases, it is essential to opt for an experienced surgeon having wide experience of dealing with such minute cases with ease. An experienced surgeon can identify the problem spots in a more efficient manner and modify them to facilitate better breathing for the patient. In cases of additional systemic conditions, and able surgeon will make a surgery plan keeping in mind the rest of the body parameters and avoid any chance of complications during the revision surgery. Dr. Bizrah stands tall on all such ideal characteristics of a rhinoplasty surgeon. That's why his beneficiary list covers patients looking for Rhinoplasty in London and beyond. 


Revision rhinoplasty comes with certain risks not present in the first nose job. As there is very little tissue left after the initial nose job, cartilage grafts are taken from the rib and ears for reshaping. Even though it is beneficial for the nose, it increases the risk of graft rejection and even infection, necrosis, and water retention to some extent. The recovery time is also greater in these cases as apart from fresh scars, the patient would be healing through scars and altered tissues from the previous nose job. That's why having practical expectations from the surgery and proper adherence to the surgeon's treatment plan is very important for a beneficial outcome from revision rhinoplasty.

With more than 38,000+ successful rhinoplasty surgeries, Dr. Bizrah has become a local name for Rhinoplasty in London and beyond. He is not just a surgeon but has transformed himself to be a leader and inspiration for other surgeons around the world with his largest operative video library and video seminars. Dr. Bizrah receives many requests for fresh and revision rhinoplasty cases in London Surgical Suites, where he practices complex and advanced cosmetic procedures throughout the year. However, if you are not from London yet want to seek Dr. Bizarh's consultation, book an online appointment, and you will get the best advice for your cases.

 

Can rhinoplasty affect your sense of smell?

Rhinoplasty involves restructuring the nose by modifying either the cartilage, septum or both. Post rhinoplasty, when the inflammation is at its most active stages, a lot of patients complain of a loss of smell accompanied at times by loss of taste. The sensation of smell in a human depends on the olfactory nerves present in the nasal pathway. The olfactory receptors are present in the form of fine filaments in the roof of the nasal cavity. They contain specialized receptors that are activated in the presence of odours. The activation leads to a chain of biochemical reactions and signals from the receptor cells. These signals travel to the brain's cortex region and ultimately to the orbitofrontal cortex, where they are perceived as odour. Given the complex nature of such side effects, it is often advised to go for the best surgeon with wide core expertise whether you're looking for rhinoplasty in London or beyond.


Rhinoplasty surgery in lieu of the inflammatory reactions triggers a phase of anosmia or loss of smell. Anosmia can be congenital, progressive, temporary or permanent. In rhinoplasty cases due to the inflammation of the nasal pathway, there is reduced airflow to the nasal passage. Because of this, the odour emitting air cannot reach the olfactory receptors or the brain cortex to initiate the sense of smell. Swelling also impacts adequate functioning of the olfactory receptors giving rise to phases of loss of smell.


Usually, at our London clinic, we've noticed that Dr Bizrah's patients who face anosmia after a rhinoplasty report its temporary nature and feel it getting resolved within a few weeks. In some people with poor healing capacity, the smell eventually comes back after a month. The severity of anosmia additionally depends on the previous nasal conditions of the patient and the type of nose job being performed. When it comes to a nose job, open rhinoplasty has been known to have an increased risk of anosmia than closed rhinoplasty. In a study conducted on 65 rhinoplasty candidates in our London clinic, we observed that 87.5% of the candidates had anosmia while the rest exhibited moderate levels of hyposmia (partial loss of smell). Within six months, the olfactory levels reverted to their preoperative status. The study proved that irrespective of gender, there is loss of smell in all patients post rhinoplasty with varying intensity. This reverts back to normal within 1-6 months of the nose job without leaving any lingering symptoms behind. According to Dr Bizrah, the result of his London clinic study represents the average time for patients to get their sense of smell back under such scenarios. However, the actual timeline may vary and thus requires periodic follow-ups. In this regard, you can always visit Dr Bizrah at his London clinic or consult online to clear any queries regarding rhinoplasty.


There are exceptions to the case as well. In people with congenital anosmia, the loss of smell is permanent and does not improve even after the nose job. In cases of rhinoplasty performed for a closed nasal passage, the sense of smell improves and becomes even more acute after the nose job procedure. Whereas in cases of trauma-induced rhinoplasty or accidental damage by the surgeon, the anosmia is permanent and does not recover even after years following the reshaping procedure.


As of now, there is no way to prevent the occurrence of anosmia after a rhinoplasty procedure. Reduction of the inflammation will revert to its preoperative status. So proper following of postoperative instructions can reduce the inflammation and the anosmia to a great extent. Genetic history of loss of smell should also be reported in the initial screening visit to avoid any complications after the reshaping surgery. If the loss of smell does not return even after six months, the surgeon can contemplate further surgery to remove the obstacle leading to the smell alteration.


In this regard, if you have been looking for rhinoplasty in London, you must consult Dr Bizrah at London Surgical Suites. He has performed over 38,000+ rhinoplasty procedures in his London and Dubai clinics. That's why patients looking for rhinoplasty in London and beyond prefer Dr Bizrah's expertise over anyone else.
