‘7 Things I Wish I’d Known Before Getting A Nose Job’ by Jacqueline Kilikita

Posted by admin, on 17th May 2017

We found this blog from Rhinoplasty patient Jacqueline Kilikita to be an insightful and honest account and helpful to people considering having a nose job.

What is a Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty (Greek: ῥίς rhis, nose + πλάσσειν plassein, to shape), commonly known as a nose job, is a plastic surgery procedure for correcting and reconstructing the form, restoring the functions, and aesthetically enhancing the nose by resolving nasal trauma (blunt, penetrating, blast), congenital defect, respiratory impediment, or a failed primary rhinoplasty. Most patients are wishing to remove a bump, narrow nostril width, change the angle between the nose and the mouth, as well as correct injuries, birth defects, or other problems that affect breathing, such as deviated nasal septum or a sinus condition.

There are two types of rhinoplasty, the open and the closed, with each technique the surgeon aims to achieve a functional, aesthetic, and facially proportionate nose. This is performed by separating the nasal skin and the soft tissues from the osseo-cartilaginous nasal framework, correcting them as required for form and function, suturing the incisions, using tissue glue and applying either a package or a stent, or both, to immobilize the corrected nose to ensure the proper healing of the surgical incision.

What were the 7 things Ms Kilikita wished she’d known before she had surgery?

  1.     The big reveal is extremely disappointing – It will still be very swollen and bruised
  2.     It takes time to adjust to the new face staring back at you
  3.     It looks worse than it feels, so don't let people work you up into a panic beforehand
  4.     Other people's perceptions of your appearance are totally different from your own
  5.     Changing your appearance won't change the way people treat you
  6.     It'll never be completely perfect
  7.     People might make you feel silly for having it done – Don't listen to them
