How is Rhinoplasty Performed?
Rhinoplasty typically takes a couple of hours. The incisions are mainly under the nostrils or in the natural creases along the sides of the nose, near the base. These small incisions heal quickly, and the scars are practically invisible. When the operation is complete, a cast will be placed on your nose.
In the event that there is any bleeding, a light dressing may be placed inside the nostrils. This dressing can be removed the same day or the next day. The cast is usually removed in about a week while any sutures placed in a natural crease are removed in several days.
Preparing for Your Rhinoplasty Procedure
When you’re preparing for rhinoplasty, the doctor may have to stop certain medications or lifestyle choices prior to the procedure. Smoking should be stopped at least two weeks prior to the surgery to keep the risk factors for complications down and to help healing.
You’ll experience swelling and bruising for a few days after the surgery. While at home, it’s very important that patients take medication regularly, change bandages and dressings, and return for follow-up appointments to ensure a smooth recovery.
