Forward growth of the nose is instrumental in facial development. If a nose job were to be performed on the nose before it is fully grown, there is a chance that normal nasal and, therefore, facial growth will be inhibited. This could adversely affect the development of the upper jaw, or ‘maxilla.’ Generally speaking, nasal surgery should be deferred until growth is complete. However, this varies greatly between individuals.
Some children are fully grown at 14; others are not until they are 18 or 19. It is useful to compare the height of the teen with the height of his/her parents in order to assess whether growth has ceased (or perhaps almost ceased). With these provisions in place, many teens struggling with self-confidence issues because of the shape or size of their nose are eligible for nose job.
You can have nose job a few months after delivery provided you are physically and emotionally ready for a cosmetic procedure. Though breastfeeding can be done after the operation, you will be under medication, and narcotics pass through breast milk for the first few days. So, lactating patients should prepare by pumping and storing breast milk for the duration recommended by their OB/GYN.
Bringing up a child can be a breathtaking experience for first-time mothers, so it might not be wise to add the stress of recovering from a cosmetic surgery. From a medical point of view, many doctors recommend that lactating mothers don’t take certain medications that may make their way into breast milk and into the baby. There are very many medications that fit this category and should be avoided.
the healing process is much faster than the open technique. All tissues, nerves, and veins are preserved with the closed technique because there is no incision on the nose. So, after the surgery the nose continues to be fed from the protected tissues and this makes the patient have more comfortable time.
There are no stitches, because there is no external incision, and there is no mark because there is no stitch. You can think “How this is possible?” With the experience and expertise of the surgeon, you can have the most natural, most compatible and no scarring nose job process.
It takes about six weeks for your nose to heal, so after this time you may resume your normal exercise routine. After three to four weeks, most patients can resume gentle, non-contact exercise such as swimming and biking. Just be careful with activities that require a lot of bouncing, such as high-impact aerobics or jumping rope. Running should be avoided during this stage, too.
Since you’ve taken some time off from your workout, you should ease back into your routine. Don’t take on the most difficult aerobics class or try to run the same distance you ran before surgery. With weights, start at a lower weight and work your way back up as your body allows over the next few weeks. Stop doing the exercise if you don’t feel well or you can feel your nose throbbing. This is your body’s way of telling you to take it easy.
You should wait even longer to resume contact sports. You don’t want to risk injury to your new nose, and getting hit soon after nose job could harm your nose and its appearance, not to mention put you at risk for a serious injury!
You should hold on for at least six weeks after nose job surgery date to restart basketball, football, baseball, or any sport where you could potentially get hit by a ball or another person. If you play any type of sports, you can ask your surgeon to give you specific instructions for the recovery period. Protective gear such as a face visor and helmet may be recommended for a time.
