Rhinoplasty (Nose Job)

Used For

Correction of cosmetic deformities as well as functional issues of the nose

Down Time

1 Week

How It Works

Tissues beneath the skin of the nose can be changed to provide a more pleasing nasal appearance. For issues with breathing, a septoplasty may be performed and cartilage grafts can be used to support collapsed portions of the nose.

Side Effects

Most common side effect is swelling and bruising of the nose and around the eyes.

What to Expect

After the rhinoplasty procedure, tapes and an external splint are applied to the nose which stays in place for one week. After these are removed at one week there will be swelling of the nose that will go away gradually. Typically 80% of the swelling is gone at 2 weeks, 90% at 2 months, and the rest goes away gradually over the following year. The nose will continue to improve over time as the swelling resolves. Just like there is swelling on the outside, there may be swelling on the inside. Breathing will also continue to improve over that time. If septal work is performed (on the inside), small splints may be placed on the inside of the nose which are also removed at one week. I do not use any nasal packing for my nasal procedures.
