Give yourself the body and
LOOK YOU DESERVE!!!
A medical history along with a careful examination is conducted in order to evaluate your general health. We will discuss with you the way your nose can look in relation to your other facial features. Preoperative instructions may include the elimination of certain drugs in order to minimize the possibility of excess bleeding. Antibiotics may be prescribed before surgery to prevent infection.
Method of Surgery
Surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia. In most cases involving a reduction in shape or size of the nose, improvement of the angle, or removal of a hump. The bone and cartilage are reshaped and the skin redraped over the surface. Patients who have a deviated septum may benefit by correction of this problem. The incisions are placed inside the nose, unless the surgeon uses an open approach, in which case the incisions are made across the tissue between the nostrils. In cases where the nostrils flare, the surgeon may make an incision at the junction between the nose and the skin of the upper lip to narrow the flared appearance. It is not unusual to combine rhinoplasty with chin augmentation to improve the profile.
The recovery takes several weeks. Most people resume their normal nonathletic activities within a week or two. Following surgery, a lightweight splint is applied to maintain the new shape of the nose. The splint is removed within a week. There is always some stuffiness of the nose, especially when work has been done on the nasal septum. Nasal packing may be required for one or more days..
Pain is minimal and is controlled with medications. Bruising occurs around the eyes but fades within 1-2 weeks, in most cases. Swelling may be slow to completely resolve
Your insurance company may pay for all or part of the costs associated with your surgery, if it is performed as a result of nasal obstruction. It is recommended that you check with your carrier to determine if there is coverage.
I liked the confidence of the doctor and his staff when making the decision to undergo my procedure. I was very comfortable with my procedure and it was an excellent experience. Would recommend him to anyone! Thank you
