Facial reconstruction is serious business, one that too many take for granted. If you’re a patient considering any sort of aesthetic reconstruction, you need to do your research to make sure that you’re under the care of a well educated, supremely experienced surgeon who can deliver the exact results that you’re looking for effectively and affordably. Too many patients seek care under a general surgeon who lacks the education and experience even for a routine nose job, and they wind up regretting their decision when they suffer complications or results that are less than desired. Don’t make this mistake, and don’t place yourself in the care of someone who can’t take great care of you and give you the results that you’re dreaming of.
We are a small practice based in Miami who has only one interest in mind, and that’s you. Here’s what you need to know: we were founded and are still entirely owned by doctors, not investors, not businessmen, not people who don’t have a stake in the game in terms of your health and safety. In addition, we pride ourselves on the variety in our staff – we have all American Board of Plastic Surgery Certified doctors with specific expertise tailored to meet any one need exceptionally well. In other words, if you’d like a nose job, we won’t have a general plastic surgeon working with you, you’ll be working with the best in our surgeons who only works on facial procedures and nose jobs. This ensures that you have only the most experienced surgeons working with you, and you’re guaranteed to get results that align.
If you opt to have your nose job done at PSI Miami, not only will you be receiving the best in patient care in aesthetic plastic surgery in Miami, but you can count on us to empower you with all the information you need to make the best decision for you. Part of that? Informing you on risks and benefits of each procedure thoroughly before you ever step foot in a procedure room.
A good plastic surgeon will be precise in his work, and will take proper measurements and precautions to ensure that you are well taken care of and will achieve the best results possible. How do we do this? At times we may use tape and bandaging on your skin, simply as per part of the process in reconstructing the nose. Skin problems could potentially result, especially if your skin is prone to irritation. The breakdown of skin tissue sometimes occurs as the skin becomes irritated, and can be itchy, red, and mildly painful for a few days. If the irritation worsens over time or simply doesn’t go away, give us a call.
Anytime you put your body through a procedure, specifically when it involves cutting, stitching, or altering the aesthetics of the body, you may be prone to infection. This doesn’t indicate that anything went wrong in the procedure, just that your body’s white blood cells weren’t able to fight off the infection. As a precaution, most surgeons will give you preventative antibiotics to take after your procedure, which will majorly reduce the risk for infection.
Anytime the tissue is cut or altered, swelling will occur internally and often externally. When dealing with the nose, this swelling is likely to occur inside the nasal cavity. This is normal, for the most part, until the nasal passage becomes completely blocked by swelling, cutting off air flow. There’s no immediate danger given the fact that we’re all able to breathe through our mouths, but if your nasal passages become blocked due to swelling, you’ll certainly want to let your doctor know so that we can try to get the swelling down and under control.
Anesthesia is something that many people overlook before their procedure takes place; they rather focus all of their recovery thoughts and efforts on the targeted area of attention (like the nose in a nose job). We caution you to take into account the effects of anesthesia, and how they alter the body. Although some jobs can be performed under local anesthesia, general anesthesia is often required and can cause significant drowsiness, nausea, dizziness and migraines up to 48 hours after you’ve received it. Every body is different; some people don’t react to anesthesia beyond only being sleepy, but some react very harshly. Be aware of your body, and the potential risks that come along with general anesthesia. Always feel free to call us if your anesthesia complications worsen over time or simply don’t go away.
At PSI Miami, we really feel as though patient education is of the utmost importance before we perform any procedure. That’s why we’re upfront about the common risks affiliated with nose job procedures in Miami.
