Nose Surgery

Nose surgery, or rhinoplasty is one of the cosmetic procedures that can most greatly improve your overall appearance. Rhinoplasty can make your nose larger or smaller and can change the shape of the bridge, tip, or nostrils. Rhinoplasty can also relieve breathing abnormalities or correct a birth defect or injury.

 

OVERVIEW   Procedure   Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that can produce changes in the appearance and structure of the of the nose.
Benefits  To improve the shape or size of the nose, repair damage caused by an injury, may improve or restore breathing
Recovery Time  May return to non strenuous work in 1 - 2 weeks.  Return to strenuous activities in 6-8 weeks.  Avoid hitting/bumping your nose for 8 weeks.
Post-Op Considerations   You may have a splint covering your nose for one week after surgery. Do not blow your nose for 2 weeks after surgery. 
Tips  Have ice packs available at home.  Using ice postoperatively for the first 48 hours will help control swelling and pain.

 

During the rhinoplasty procedure, incisions are made either along the nostrils or inside the nostrils. By discreetly placing the incisions along or inside the nostrils, there should be no real visible scarring. Next, the skin is separated from the bone and cartilage, which is sculpted to the desired shape. When the rhinoplasty surgery is complete, a splint is applied to help your nose keep its new shape. Rhinoplasty usually takes one to two hours and is performed under general anesthesia.

For the first 3-4 days after rhinoplasty, you may experience some minor discomfort and puffiness in your face, but any discomfort can be controlled with medication. Most of the swelling and bruising should disappear within two weeks of your rhinoplasty. Recovery from rhinoplasty usually takes up to a month.
