What are the rhinoplasty techniques?
Closed rhinoplasty is preferred by many because the incisions made during this procedure are all inside the nose so that no scars are visible after the surgery. However, if your condition needs more visualisation, an additional cut on the skin in between your nostrils called columella is done on top of the incisions usually made inside the nose. Your rhinoplasty surgeon determines which approach is going to work for you, so you can discuss with him your concerns with regard to scars, healing, and pain.

Frequently Asked Questions
(FAQs) about Rhinoplasty
How much would a rhinoplasty cost?
Will my health insurance and Medicare help in covering the cost of my rhinoplasty?
With regard to health insurance coverage, it depends on your chosen policies. If your insurance coverage includes a category for plastic surgery, your rhinoplasty procedure may, possibly, be covered. However, if you initially wanted to save money and take out this category, you would have to pay for the expenses out of your own pocket. You may upgrade and include plastic surgery within your policy but be mindful of the waiting period that your insurance sets. A typical six- to twelve-month waiting period before you can be able to use your insurance is expected for complicated procedures such as nose reshaping.
How long before I can get back to work post-surgery?
At first, the improvements promised by your surgeon may not be visible during your first weeks of recovery, and this may be due to the swelling and bruising. You can expect these side effects to subside after the first 10 to 14 days. Most patients feel they are ready to go back to work after 1 or 2 weeks, but your rhinoplasty surgeon should first sign off to this with a return to work certification. He may also include strict instructions on restrictions and limitations regarding your work activities. Strenuous activities of any movement that may be in contact with or put pressure on your nose should be avoided until the surgeon permits you to do so. That said a safety net of 3-4 weeks post-surgery may be the best time to return to work, or until your surgeon clears you to do so.
