Rhinoplasty (Nose Job) Washington, D.C. Having a prominent nose can be beautiful, but if you feel like your nose consumes your face or if your nose just makes you self-conscious, then you may want to consider getting a rhinoplasty from West End Plastic Surgery. Depending on what results you are going for, we will determine what exactly needs to be done during surgery. If you are still looking into getting a rhinoplasty, we have tons of information for you. To help, hopefully, make your decision easier, we have debunked three myths about this procedure.

Myth: It’s Just a Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty isn’t just a way to reduce the size of your nose or change its shape. In fact, rhinoplasty can help add more proportion to your entire face overall; leaving you looking more balanced. Additionally, rhinoplasty can help give you the self-esteem you have always wanted.

Myth: It’s Very Painful

Although you may feel varying amounts of pain throughout your recovery, more patients complain of discomfort rather than pain after a rhinoplasty. To help make you feel more comfortable while you’re in recovery, try to keep your head elevated as much as possible (especially when you’re sleeping), and take over-the-counter NSAIDs like Ibuprofen. If your pain persists or worsens, make sure to contact our office right away and schedule an appointment.

Myth: The Road to Recovery Is Long

This is true and false. How long it takes you to recover after rhinoplasty varies from patient to patient. However, for the most part, patients are able to get back to work in about a week. Although it takes about one entire year for you to be fully healed after a rhinoplasty, you will feel way better long before then.
