Rhinoplasty can benefit many people. It may be a good solution for you if:
The surgery is usually done at a hospital while the patient is under general anesthesia. During the procedure, the skin will be lifted and the underlying bone, cartilage, and tissue will be adjusted. Whenever possible the incisions are made near the base of the nose and at the inner part of the nostrils where the cut will be inconspicuous. The details of the procedure will vary from patient to patient depending on the desired final results.
The best way to speed up your recovery is to carefully follow the instructions given by your doctor. In general, you’ll need to sleep with your head elevated for about a week. You should expect some swelling and bruising near the nose and eyes. Holding a cold compress to the area can help reduce pain and swelling. After about a week, you’ll return to the doctor to have the splint and stitches removed. When you’ve recovered, you’ll be able to see the improved results from the procedure, but it will take some time for the final results to be completely evident.
