For more invasive liposuction procedures, we encourage our patients to stay with a friend or family member afterward. If this is not possible, you may want to consider hiring a home health care worker to help take care of you. The cost of this will depend on the type of worker you hire (registered nurse, registered practical nurse, or personal support worker), and how long they stay.
Recovery from rhinoplasty can take several weeks, and patients should prepare accordingly. In particular, they should take at least two weeks off of work and arrange for a ride home from the hospital or surgical center. If possible, they should find someone who can stay with them for a few days to help with daily tasks. After rhinoplasty, chewing can be uncomfortable, so patients should buy plenty of soft foods to eat during the first several days.
In the initial surgical consultation, patients should discuss their specific needs and aesthetic goals to ensure that these goals are realistic. While rhinoplasty can achieve dramatic results, the procedure will not completely alter a patient's appearance. Rather, it is intended to enhance an individual's beauty and correct minor to moderate imperfections. Fortunately, even small changes can have major, positive effects on a patient's overall appearance.
After being injected, patients are pleased to discover they can resume their normal activities immediately. The results are also visible right away, which gives instant gratification. Although there may be minor swelling due to the injections, the majority of this swelling will subside within the first 24 hours. Patients typically find the non-surgical nose job to be an easy, quick, and exciting process that results in an aesthetically beautiful and pleasing appearance.
