Post treatment I was a left a little red and blotchy, so I cancelled any meetings I had straight after. Although the redness soon faded I was left with a few tiny pin prick points. I am told that bruising is common, but it all depends on how sensitive your skin is. I was also left with a slight headache, almost like I’d been wearing a swim cap for a few days. This too didn’t last longer than a few hours, and wasn’t anything that two paracetamol couldn’t fix. If you do experience a headache for longer than 48 hours, or any other symptoms like nausea or visual disturbances (although rare) you are advised to contact your practitioner.
Case 78: A combination approach was used here to create a really meaningful but completely natural transformation. Otoplasty made prominent ears all but disappear from the field of view and no longer distract or draw attention. At the same time, rhinoplasty, chin augmentation, and neck liposuction accomplished were able to remove a nasal hump and overprojection while improving chin and neck laxity to achieve a nice overall balance.
Thanks for your question. There are many factors that contribute to the cost of rhinoplasty. This may include any previous surgery (revision), anesthesia preferences, and the complexity of the procedure. Each nose needs to be approached individually. That being said, the average cost of rhinoplasty is between $5,000 and $10,000. I will reiterate what others have said in that your comfort level in the surgeon, their experience with this procedure, as well as their aesthetic taste should be a guiding factors in the decision rather than price. Good luck.
Many patients prefer to complete multiple procedures at the same time during a comprehensive surgery. This is quite common and is usually safer than performing three or four separate procedures. As long as there is no heightened risk of complications, additional procedures—such as a tummy tuck or liposuction – can be performed. Because this approach requires only one round of anesthesia, it is typically more affordable and convenient.
Reported treatments for BIA-ALCL vary from complete implant and capsule (scar tissue around the implant) removal to chemotherapy and/or radiation. In rare cases, deaths have also been reported (though none have been reported in Canada to date). Preventive removal of breast implants is not recommended in the absence of signs or symptoms suggestive of BIA-ALCL. Patients should discuss the risks and benefits of implant removal with their healthcare professional if they have concerns.
