Dr. Rod Rohrich Talks About Botox and Rhinoplasty Recovery

Dr. Rod Rohrich has always stressed on the importance of referring to surgeons, ophthalmologists, dermatologists and any other specialists who are board certified. The reason behind this is caution. Because plastic surgeries are not, in any way, inexpensive, it is important to ensure that the right person is performing the procedure. On top of that, results can often be better when board certified surgeons and specialists are chosen. When this advice is ignored, various side-effects are noticed after the surgery. Two such common plastic and cosmetic surgery procedures include Botox and Rhinoplasty.

Certified Professionals For Better Botox Results – Dr. Rod Rohrich recommends going for a board certified surgeon for Botox because there are many side effects of this procedure that can be particularly painful if a trustworthy professional is not the one performing them. For the safety of the patient, this is a tip that should never be ignored.

Often, the problem of dry eyes is noticed after Botox and as per Dr. Rod Rohrich, this is mostly because it has been placed a tad too medially. Board certified dermatologists would rarely commit this folly. However, Dr. Rod Rohrich does mention that if someone already has the problem of dry eyes, the problem could be worsened by Botox injections. He recommends going for someone who is a specialist in the field of Botox treatment. All in all, dry eyes post-Botox in someone who doesn’t suffer from the condition originally is not normal.

Careful Aftercare Post Rhinoplasty – In Rhinoplasty, the nose of a person is reshaped and goes under the knife. This area is a sensitive one and thus, most surgeons would recommend adequate rest post surgery.

Dr. Rod Rohrich mentions that the normal time for recovery is between a week and 10 days. He adds that normal activity can be resumed after 3 weeks. However, he has one word of advice that he often offers to his own patients – for people who have problems with eyesight, this period should be a no-glasses one because the bridge of the nose needs ample time to heal. It should not be put under pressure by the glasses. In order to facilitate early wound healing, this preventative measure should be followed for about 4 weeks post surgery. The final result would reveal itself in about a year but it could take longer for people whose skin is thicker.

These are Dr. Rod Rohrich’s tips on two of the most common surgical procedures. Find him on Facebook for more inforamation.
