Rhinoplasty, also called a nose job, is performed to improve the appearance of the nose and sometimes the function as well. The rhinoplasty procedure typically takes around an hour to an hour and half. Some bruising and pain can be expected following the procedure which will ease and fade over time. Most patients are able to get back to work within a week and back to all of their regular activities after a month. The rhinoplasty procedure can improve a number of common complaints that people have such as bumps or indentations in the profile of the nose, the tip of the nose being too wide or too narrow, the tip of the nose being too upturned or too downturned, etc.
The Rhinoplasty procedure can also improve issues inside the nose where a structural obstruction inhibits air flow. If you are interested in learning more about the rhinoplasty procedure and to find out if it may be right for you, contact our office to schedule your consultation today.
