While many of us are up in arms about the Swine flu, especially if you are a germ phobe like alot of us, some of Dr. Shah’s patients are using the Swine Flu scare to their advantage. After a rhinoplasty, patients will wear a cast over their nose for the first 5 to 7 days. Unfortunately, this lets everyone know your little nip tuck is no longer a secret.
With the swine flu, it is becoming more common for people to wear a mask over their nose, especially in public. Some of Dr. Shah’s patients are wearing a mask as the perfect coverup after rhinoplasty. You may have seen some of these patients walking around town, boarding planes, etc.
In other cultures, the Bhurka can cover up much of the face, making the week after rhinoplasty an easier week when the cast is in place. Now the swine flu has given patients another cover up option.
