non surgical rhinoplasty

The Zenith Rhinoplasty Process

Zenith Cosmetic Clinic in Nottingham aims to support you along every step of this life-changing journey. Your comfort is our primary concern, and we are on hand to answer any questions you may have.

The first step is to book a consultation  with our brilliant rhinoplasty surgeon, Professor Sama. You will meet on at least two occasions before surgery, and these sessions will give us a chance to talk through a course of action tailored to your requirements. You will need to sign a patient consent form in order to proceed and must be over eighteen years of age to do so.

The next stage is a pre-operative assessment which takes place 2-5 weeks prior to surgery. This is essentially a medical examination performed by one of our specialists to assess whether or not you are fit enough for the operation.

Professor Sama will perform the surgery, after which you will need around seven days recovery. He will also see you for a follow-up appointment to ensure that your recovery is progressing smoothly and that you are satisfied with the results.

What happens during recovery?

After rhinoplasty surgery, it is usual for a splint to be applied to the nose and the nostrils to be packed for support. This will feel strange, as you will be unable to breathe through your nose, but you will soon adjust. The packing will be removed after 4-7 days, and the splint after 7-10 days.

Pain medication will be prescribed to alleviate the side-effects of surgery, such as facial bruising, swelling and general discomfort. Surgery is hard on the body at first, and you should not be concerned if your face appears puffy or the areas around your eyes swell. Elevating your head for the first few days of recovery will reduce swelling, but expect effects to linger well beyond two weeks.

In fact, it can take months for swelling to disappear completely, but after that, the full results of the operation will be seen and you can delight in your new appearance.

Things to avoid during your immediate recovery period include:

  • Strenuous physical activity
  • Hot baths and getting the splint wet
  • Smoking or smoke in general
  • Dusty places
  • Sneezing through the nose
  • Blowing your nose

We will give you detailed aftercare instructions after your rhinoplasty operation and if you have any questions, just give us a call.
