popular cosmetic surgery called RHINOPLASTY
or better known as NOSELIFT
can help shape better confidence in facial looks by creating a nose
that’s more compatible with the rest of the facial features.
This procedure is designed to reduce or increase the size of the nose,
change the shape of the tip or bridge and thin the width of the
nostrils. Rhinoplasty or

deformities, both congenital and resulting from injury.
surgery: This operation
involves by inserting a cartilage graft, a gore-tex
implant or a silicon implant to increase the height of the tip and the
bridge of the nose. The operation lasts for approximately an hour; the
more complex procedures may last longer. At Beaufaces,
we prefer the closed method, with incisions performed inside the nose.
We are reserving the open procedure for the more complicated cases.
After the surgery, the nose is covered with nasal splint and bandage.
The surgery is usually done at the clinic under local anesthesia and as
an outpatient basis.
recuperating at home, the patient is advised to take antibiotics, pain
reliever and antihistamine. These medicines prescribed by Dr.
Alonzo should be strictly
followed to avoid any further complication. You will be required to see
our surgeon, on the third day for the removal of the bandage/splint
then on the 7th day and 10th day for the removal of stitches.
the first days after the operation, the patient may feel little pain
and discomfort due to face swollen (especially on the lower eyelids)

pain medication prescribe by Dr. Alonzo. Applying cold compress will
also reduce swelling which will obviously relieve these symptoms. You
should not be alarmed if there is some bleeding from the incision site,
as this is normal and often resolve within 2 days. Swelling and
bruising around the eyes will start to disappear within a week and will
completely subside for about 2 weeks.
can go back to work in 1 to 2 weeks, but strenuous activities should be
avoided in the next 2 to 3 weeks. After the removal of the bandage and
stitches, you must take care of your nose and avoid getting it injured
until it is completely healed. The frames of glasses should not be
allowed to rest on the bridge of the nose for three weeks. You can wear
contact lenses within two to three days after the surgery.
Rhinoplasty/noselift can be enhanced further with other
cosmetic surgery procedures such as
eyebag removal, eyelid creation, dimple construction, cleft chin,
dimple construction and botox injection.
