Rhinoplasty is a surgery that is used to improve the contour of the nose and correct all the flaws of the nose quickly and effectively.
During the rhinoplasty surgery, the surgeon will use specialized tools to make an incision and open up the nasal cavity for an artificial cartilage implant. After that, the incision will be closed using cosmetic threads through microsurgery, leaving no scar on the nose.
Nowadays, there are multiple different techniques of rhinoplasty. However, the most highly recommended method is combining artificial and autologous cartilage. The artificial cartilage is used to reshape and elevate the dorsal, while the autologous cartilage (usually from the ears) to coated, shape, and protect the nose tip.

How to fasten the recovery of your nose
Post-operative care is very important in allowing the nose to fully recover faster and more stable.
Normally, after rhinoplasty, the area around the nose tends to have swelling, bruises, and mild pain. To relieve the bruises quickly, you should regularly apply ice to the region for the first 2 – 3 days.
Additionally, you should keep the nose sanitary well by changing the dressing frequently and cleaning it with saline 2 – 3 times per day. You can even use the saline used in surgery but regular saline is still a decent option.
Avoid touching or letting the nose come in contact for at least 1 month. In addition, you should not do any sports or intense activities or lift heavy objects. Moreover, you can only sleep lying flat, not sideways or resting your hand on the forehead.
You should also pay some attention to your diet after rhinoplasty. Hard food or food that can cause allergy and keloid scars like beef, water spinach, seafood, chicken, soy sauce, etc. must be avoided. Additionally, stimulants and cigarette use should be ceased temporarily.
You should also consume more products that are rich in vitamins (especially vitamin A, E, and C), minerals, and water during the daily meals. Some fruits like strawberry, grapes, blueberry, kiwi, cherry, orange, tangerine, avocado, etc., and dark green vegetables should be taken more.
