Nose Surgery Mexico
Reshapes the nose by reducing or increasing the size, removing humps, changing the shape of the tip or of the bridge, narrowing the span between the nostrils, or changing the angle between the nose and upper lip. This procedure may also relieve some breathing difficulties when combined with surgery performed on the nasal septum.
The surgery takes approximately one hour or more.
General or intravenous sedation and local anesthesia are used.
This is an outpatient procedure
Possible Side Effects:
Temporary swelling, bruising around the eyes, and/or nose and some bleeding and nasal stuffiness.
Infection, asymmetry, unsatisfactory nasal shape and partial improvement (which would require additional surgery) are possible.
The patient may go back to work after one week. More strenuous activities may be resumed after two to three weeks. The patient should avoid any activity that could impact on the nose and should avoid becoming sunburned for at least eight weeks. The use of a sun block that provides both UVA and UVB protection is useful. The final results may take up to one year and sometimes longer to achieve. (Why longer? The nose seems to be the part of the body that takes the longest to completely assume its final appearance after cosmetic plastic surgical procedures. This is related to the time required to reestablish the lymphatic drainage pathways, which are responsible for resolving swelling).
