    Rhinoplasty Recovery | Nose Job | Beverly Hills | West HollywoodRhinoplasty (Nose Job Surgery) Recovery

    Rhinoplasty is an intricate cosmetic surgery procedure, which can have a significant impact on the facial appearance. Recovery in case of rhinoplasty will vary from one patient to another, depending on several factors.

    Dr. Gary Motykie is a board certified plastic surgeon providing rhinoplasty and other procedures to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other areas. During the initial consultation, Dr. Motykie will discuss various aspects of rhinoplasty plastic surgery including the estimated recovery process.

    Duration of Recovery

    Working people and mothers with little babies are usually more concerned about the downtime and the total recovery period involved in a procedure performed by a cosmetic surgeon such as rhinoplasty. The precise amount of downtime will typically vary from patient to patient, depending on the extent of cosmetic surgery involved, the surgical technique employed, and the intrinsic healing ability of the patient.

    In most cases, the patient will be able to go back to work or resume the normal activities at home in about one week. If the patient has received a major surgery, which may include nose reconstruction or implants, the total downtime may extend up to two weeks. Dr. Motykie is an experienced plastic surgeon who tries to ensure safer and faster recovery for his patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas.

    Initial Recovery

    For the first few days, a majority of patients will experience mild pain and discomfort in the treated areas. Minor, intermittent headaches are also a common issue during the initial recovery phase. These concerns will resolve in a few days. However, if the pain becomes severe or does not subside, it could be an indication of an infection, and the patient should contact the cosmetic surgeon. Pain medications can help ensure patient comfort in the initial days.

    Nasal congestion is commonly reported following rhinoplasty during the first few days. This condition will start getting better from the second week onwards as the internal swelling reduces. Patients who had a complaint of breathing obstructions in the nose will be able to experience immediate relief following the procedure.

    Condition of Swelling and Bruising

    Mild bruising and swelling is expected after a rhinoplasty. Swelling is more noticeable in the external parts of the nose and cheeks. If more invasive surgery has been performed, the condition will take more time to resolve. How far the surgeon can preserve the surrounding tissue against damage will also impact the condition.

    Swelling and bruising will be more pronounced in a situation where nose reconstruction or nasal bone displacement is involved. The bruises will fade after about two weeks in such cases, but the swelling will take a longer time to resolve completely.

    Nose Cast

    In most cases, the surgeon will place a cast over the nose for about five to seven days. The cast as well as the sutures may be removed together during the first post-surgery visit to the surgeon. Once the full effects of the surgery begin to settle in, the patient will start feeling much better with the results.

    Rhinoplasty (Nose Job Surgery) Candidates

    Cheek Augmentation Surgery | Beverly Hills | West HollywoodPeople who are unhappy with the appearance of their nose may discuss with a cosmetic surgeon for the possibility of rhinoplasty. Aesthetic concerns that are commonly corrected with rhinoplasty plastic surgery include wide nasal tip, crooked nose, bump on the nasal bridge, and disproportionately smaller or larger nose size.

    Dr. Gary Motykie is a board certified plastic surgeon who will carefully evaluate whether the patient is a suitable candidate for nose surgery. Patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities who are seeking rhinoplasty may consult with Dr. Motykie to determine how suitable the procedure may be in their case.

    A Personal Decision

    An experienced cosmetic surgeon will always encourage the patient to take a decision on the basis of their very personal innermost needs when considering rhinoplasty or similar procedures. One of the most important aspects while determining the suitability of a patient for a plastic surgery procedure such as rhinoplasty is that it is something that the patient and only the patient is wanting to have. Rhinoplasty must be an independent choice, and not merely prompted or influenced by another individual or the image of a celebrity.

    Realistic Expectations

    Patients with a positive outlook, clear aesthetic goals, and realistic expectations usually make the best candidates for rhinoplasty cosmetic surgery. The challenges to a procedure may occur when the patient brings along a picture of a celebrity from a magazine and insists on achieving the specific nose appearance.

    While such images can provide the cosmetic surgeon will an indication of the patient’s aesthetic needs, but achieving an identical nose may not be realistic, considering the current nasal anatomy and other facial features of the patient. Dr. Motykie will show rhinoplasty before and after pictures of other patients to provide an idea of what to expect from the surgery to his patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other areas.

    Common Aesthetic Conditions

    Rhinoplasty candidates can typically benefit from the procedure if they are bothered by one or more of the following conditions in the appearance of their nose:

    • The width of the nose is disproportionate to the face.
    • The nasal tip is wide, droopy, bulbous, or upturned.
    • The overall shape of the nose is uneven.
    • The nose profile is irregular.
    • The nasal bridge is thicker than required.
    • The overall size of the nose is larger than required.
    • The nose is flatter or less pronounced.

    Medical Conditions

    Some candidates may need rhinoplasty not just for aesthetic reasons, but also for medical reasons. If the patient suffers from nasal deformity by birth or acquires such condition following a traumatic facial injury, the surgeon may recommend a nose surgery. Faulty nose shape can cause obstruction in breathing, which can be corrected with nose surgery. Other nasal functions can also be improved with rhinoplasty procedure in some cases.

    Age Factor

    Candidates who are younger than 14 years of age may not be considered suitable for a rhinoplasty procedure. It is important that the nose structure should be fully developed before a rhinoplasty can be performed, particularly for aesthetic reasons.

    Breast Implant Exchange | Breast Revision Cost | Beverly Hills

    Breast Implants Exchange Cost

    Breast Implant Exchange surgery is a type of plastic surgery that individuals who have had their physique altered using Breast Augmentation surgery (increase breast size with breast implants) might undergo. During breast implant exchange surgery, the breast implants inserted into the breast muscle pocket can replaced or removed. This form of cosmetic surgery can take place due to necessity or as further elective cosmetic surgery.

    About the surgery

    Patients also opt for Breast Implant Exchange surgery to replace the implant type – silicone to saline or vice versa to change the look or feel of the breast, to increase or decrease of implant size or to permanently remove the breast implant. Breast Implant Exchange cosmetic surgery might also become necessary in case of distortion of the breast implant or capsular contracture after the original augmentation operation.

    Breast Implant Exchange surgery is a relatively low risk plastic surgery, which requires minimal time and post-operative care.

    During the surgery, the cosmetic surgery reopens the incision from the original surgery and removes the implant. Typically, a bi-manual exam to check for tumors is conducted before the new implant is inserted into the same pocket. In case of a rupture, he cleans the implant pocket using sponges before inserting the new implant and closing the incision.

    The Breast Implant Exchange is a simple cosmetic surgery that takes approximately 45-60 minutes with 2 hours or less post operative monitoring. Patients will experience minimal discomfort or pain, which is managed easily using ibuprofen or Tylenol. Light activities for two weeks after the surgery are also recommended to allow the implant to settle.

    How much do you need to spend cosmetic surgery

    Cosmetic Surgery does not have a fixed fee structure. The amount payable varies from patient to patient and surgeon to surgeon. Even the location of the operation might cause fluctuation in costs. The three main causes behind cost variations:

    • Cosmetic Surgeon: There are many cosmetic surgeons or plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills, Hollywood and Los Angeles. Cosmetic surgeons like Dr. Gary Motykie who is well known within the field for his skills attract a larger client base. This makes it more difficult to get a consultation appointment and commands a higher fee for his expertise.
    • Operation Facilities: Consultation fees aside, the cost of cosmetic surgery also includes the cost of operation facilities and the cost of anesthesia. Depending on the facility chosen, the cost of plastic surgery may be modest or expensive. (Breast Implant Exchange is elective surgery and might not be included under the health insurance policy.)
    • Implants: There are a selection of breast implant types that vary in softness and suppleness. The type of implant chosen also changes the end cost of the cosmetic surgery. For example, silicone gel implants costly than saline implants.

    To summarize, breast implant exchange is extremely affordable, whether the surgery is a necessity or to further enhance your physique. Spend time researching your options before selecting your cosmetic surgeon. Every decision – the skill of the cosmetic surgeon or plastic surgeon, the type of implant, the exclusivity of the clinic or hospital and the cost of the anesthesia will affect the end sum payable for the surgery.

    Breast Exchange | Breast Revision Surgery | Los Angeles | Beverly HillsBreast Implants Exchange Overview

    Breast Augmentation is one of the five most popular forms of plastic surgery. Individuals contemplating breast augmentation or who have had breast implants inserted should be aware that while breast implants have an extensive life cycle, after 10 to 15 years, it might be necessary to replace the implants. The breast implants exchange surgery may also be required in case of a rupture (very rare), distortion due to capsular contracture or if a larger or smaller implant is desired.

    What you need to know about the cosmetic surgery

    The Breast Implant Exchange is relatively painless and short cosmetic surgery, wherein, the cosmetic surgeon removes the old implants and replaces them with new ones. Patients can also elect for breast implant exchange to increase or decrease of implant size, change the type of implants –silicone gel implants to saline implants or vice versa, replace old implants or permanently remove the breast implants. Whichever the reason, the process for this plastic surgery is the same.

    The cosmetic surgeon uses the previous augmentation incision to expose the breast implant pocket. In case of a rupture of a silicon gel implant, he will remove the implant, use sponges to absorb the gel before replacing the implant. If a saline implant ruptures, the implant is simply removed and replaced as the body absorbs the saline.

    In case of increased or decrease implant size, the plastic surgeon conducts a bi-manual exam to detect for tumors and then replaces the implant. Similarly, if the patient desires permanent removal of the breast implant, the implant is removed, the bi-manual exam is conducted and the incision is sealed.

    The cosmetic surgery takes approximately an hour and is conducted under anesthesia.

    Caring – Before and after

    Elective plastic surgery is still surgery and care must be taken before and after the operation. The plastic surgeon will provide you with a list of precautions and certain pre-operation medications. To enhance the healing process and minimize risks, patients should adhere to the doctor’s advice.

    According to prominent Beverly Hills, West Hollywood and Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, most plastic surgeons will recommend and take the following precautions before and after Breast Implant Exchange:

    Before Plastic Surgery

    • Prescribe prednisone and vitamin E as a pre operative counter measure to capsular contracture.
    • Counsel smokers to quit smoking before surgery to enhance healing and recovery.
    • Recommend delaying the surgery in case of chest wall radiation after mastectomy as radiation can cause affected tissues to stiffen and cause capsular contracture.

    During Plastic Surgery

    • Conduct a bi-manual exam to detect for tumors.
    • Apply Alloderm to the implant pocket during surgery to reduce scar tissue build up.

    After Plastic Surgery

    • Monitor your post surgery progress in-clinic for up to two hours.
    • Recommend smokers not to smoker immediately after the surgery as it will impede the healing and recovery process.
    • Recommend only light activities until the implant settles.

    In conclusion, while no elective cosmetic surgery is completely without risks, breast implant exchange is quick and low risk. It allows you to upgrade your implants to new and safer FDA approved implants easily. It allows you to exchange one implant type for another to get a better look and feel. It even enables you to restore your body to its natural physique.

    CIRCUIT II b 1Motykie Med Spa’s Circuit Event II this weekend was a wellness seeker’s dream come true as the leading professionals in health and beauty were gathered under one roof to offer guidance on the latest resources for your personal well being in their field.

    A jovial spirit of warmth and good intention filled the air as I floated from one specialist to the next at this fun and educational event. Every doctor and representative I met had a wealth of information on ways to improve my body and mind in an organic way. Taking the lead, of course, was the one and only Dr. Gary Motykie who generously took the time to consult clients on his revolutionary approach to plastic surgery. Healthy refreshments and appetizers from ZICO Pure Coconut Water and My Fit Foods were not only a delicious addition to the festivities but a welcome discovery of new and convenient ways to maintain a wholesome diet. There were so many amazing vendors present championing the worthy cause of personal wellness, I couldn’t get to them all. There are, however, a few specialists I’ll mention who stood out in my opinion.

    Amongst the talented doctors, massage therapists, aestheticians and holistic nutritionalists on hand, shedding light on the innovations in individualizing nutrition and fitness were Reset Yourself Method and Caligenix. Reset Yourself Method creates a tailor made guide to gaining true balance in your body through Hair Mineral Analysis. The Method provides a detailed map for supplementing any deficiencies keeping you from optimal health and vitality. Caligenix similarly offers understanding of your individuality through the science of DNA testing. Their window into how your genetic structure plays a vital role in the way your metabolism functions and the specific role diet and exercise should play in your life is mind blowingly detailed. I also had the exciting experience of receiving a hyperbaric oxygen treatment from a portable unit provided by Healing Dives, Inc. This unique therapy is used internationally to treat a wide variety of conditions such as autism, cancer, Fibromyalgia and spinal cord injuries, to name a few. Healing Dives, Inc. offers a portable way to take advantage of the healing benefits of oxygen therapy conveniently in your own home and will also be coming to Motykie Med Spa soon!

    I wish I had the time to elaborate on how every specialist present made the correlation between health and beauty crystal clear during this marvelous event. You’ll just have to make sure not to miss the next Circuit Event at Motykie Med Spa!
