Since Los Angeles reinstated their mask-wearing rules, many people are wondering if now is the right time to have some work done. A mask will obscure your healing nose job from prying eyes, giving you the opportunity to run errands and even head into work without anyone knowing that you underwent rhinoplasty surgery in Los Angeles.
If you’ve been wanting to straighten your crooked septum, flatten your large dorsal hump, or upturn your droopy tip, now may be the time. Patients often tell us that they’ve waited to get a nose job because they are worried about what their peers may think. The pandemic has changed that.
Our Los Angeles facial plastic surgery office has seen an influx of patients who were apprehensive about maintaining their active work and social lives while their nose jobs heal. It’s completely normal to experience swelling and purplish bruising after a nose job, especially around the nose and under the eyes.
On July 15, Los Angeles county mandates that everyone two years of age and older must wear a mask in all indoor public settings, gatherings, and public and private businesses, even if they are vaccinated.
This mask mandate is a great excuse to cover your healing nose. Wearing a mask that covers your nose will help conceal the majority of nasal bruising and swelling that won’t go away until at least two weeks following the procedure.
On top of that, the rate of rising COVID infections has caused many people to continue staying home, providing you with the perfect excuse not to go out if you feel too sheepish. Many workplaces are still working from home or at least requiring their employees to wear masks, making it easier to keep your cover.
If you’re thinking about getting a nose job, now may be the perfect time! This procedure is life-lasting, so once you undergo it once, you likely don’t have to do it again. Our rhinoplasty patients are overjoyed with their results and wonder why they didn’t do it sooner.
Don’t let yourself be insecure; rhinoplasty may change your feelings about yourself inside and out. Contact us to set up a consultation to learn about how we can change your nose.
