RHINOPLASTY



Your nose is the most prominent feature on your face, second only to your eyes. Its size and shape may be the most defining characteristic of your face. Some people want a different size or shape. Others wish to repair damage caused by an injury, and some just want to breathe easier. Nose surgery can change your looks while improving your self-confidence or your breathing.  




 

 

The Rhinoplasty consulation

The ideal nose varies from face to face depending on skin type, ethnic background, age and other variables. During your initial cosmetic consultation, we will discuss your concerns about your nose, your expectations and explain the probable outcome of your procedure. We will show you several before and after treatment photographs of patients having similar noses, and we will explain the treatment you can expect to receive. Before and after photos may be taken of your nose to document your results.



How does Rhinoplasty work?

Rhinoplasty is the reshaping of the nose. It can be performed under local or general anesthesia. The procedure usually takes an hour or two, although a complicated procedure may take longer. Most incisions are made inside the nose, where they are invisible. The skin and tissues of the nose along with the underlying bone and cartilage are sculpted to your new shape.

Noses that point up or droop down can be redirected by trimming the septum which divides the two nasal passages. Skin can be removed from both sides of the nostrils at the center, to narrow the base of the nose. Sometimes the contour can be improved by adding tissue.



What is the recovery like?

Most rhinoplasty patients are up and active within two days. Your first day should be spent in bed with your head elevated. You will wear a small splint over your nose to protect it and keep it stable, for a week or two.

Your nose and head will probably ache and your face will feel puffy. This discomfort can be alleviated with prescribed medication. After about three days, the swelling and bruising around your eyes will begin to subside. It should be almost completely gone in about two weeks. Cold compresses applied to the area will help reduce the swelling.

Some bleeding is common the first few days after surgery, along with some stuffiness that could last a few weeks. It is recommended that you not blow your nose during the first week while the tissues are healing. After 10 to 12 days all dressings, splints, and sutures should be removed and you can return to a normal life. Strenuous activities, rubbing or bumping your nose should be avoided for several more weeks.
