The results of a rhinoplasty procedure are considered long-lasting and can be
permanent. However, it’s important to keep in mind that the final results may take several
months to fully stabilize as the nose heals and any residual swelling subsides.
The best age for otoplasty varies, but it is often recommended to consider the
procedure once the ears have fully developed, usually around the age of 5 or 6.
However, otoplasty can be performed on individuals of various ages, including adults. Dr.
Nizar Hamadeh, a renowned Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon can guide you
on the most suitable timing for your unique case.
The recovery period after rhinoplasty varies for each individual. While visible
improvement is often seen in the first few weeks, it may take several months for the final
results to become apparent. Most patients can return to work or normal activities within a
couple of weeks, but it’s important to follow the post-operative care instructions provided
by the surgeon to ensure a smooth and successful recovery.
Rhinoplasty primarily focuses on reshaping the nose rather than altering the
overall face shape. However, since the nose is a prominent facial feature, changes to its
size and shape can create a more harmonious facial appearance. In some cases,
improving the proportions of the nose through rhinoplasty can enhance facial balance
and create the illusion of a more proportionate face.
