Rhinoplasty (or a “nose job”) is a very commonly requested procedure for our patients. Patients may elect to undergo rhinoplasty to correct imperfections, to have a complete reconstruction or to address issues after an accident or injury. Changes and improvements can be subtle or more dramatic depending on the goals of the patient. Results tend to be long lasting, and after the procedure and an appropriate time allowed for recovery time, many patients report feeling more confident due to their enhanced appearance. Our surgeons have significant experience in cosmetic and traumatic rhinoplasty, as well as nasal reconstruction procedures.
Am I a Good Candidate for Rhinoplasty?
Patients undergo rhinoplasty for many reasons, but the most common have to do with looking and feeling better about themselves. The surgery may involve fixing nose size, overall shape or just eliminating imperfections. Whatever the reason, it’s best to talk with a surgeon to build a plan to achieve your goals.
Post-Operative Rhinoplasty Care:
In the time following your surgery, it is best to avoid any strenuous activities for up to three weeks. Most patients experience bruising and swelling, but still report being able return to work in a week depending upon the scope and type of surgery.
