Recovery from nasal tip rhinoplasty is easier than from a full rhinoplasty procedure but it can still take an extended time period.
Directly after surgery, you will be advised not to touch that area of your face for a while. You should also avoid hard or intense physical activity for a minimum of three to four weeks.
Noticeable swelling should go down within a few weeks but there is usually internal swelling that can last between six months and a year, producing the sensation of a constantly blocked nose.
Despite what you might expect, although tip rhinoplasty is not as complex as full rhinoplasty, the cost is not significantly lower.
As with any operation that requires the patient to undergo full anesthesia, this type of procedure is not cheap. A qualified anesthesiologist must be on hand to monitor the patient for the entire operation.
While requirements and specifications, and therefore the length and complexity of the procedure, will vary with each patient, a skilled, expert surgeon will always be required to conduct the operation.
There is also the added cost of aftercare until the patient comes out from under full anesthesia. These costs combined mean that tip rhinoplasty procedures generally run to a few thousand dollars.
Nose tip rhinoplasty is a significant procedure to undergo, both in terms of recovery time and cost, but the impact it can have on your appearance and self-esteem make it worth the investment of both time and money.
