A rhinoplasty is performed under general anesthesia and is usually an outpatient surgery. There are various surgical techniques depending on your aesthetic goals and concerns. Dr. Munasifi performs nose surgery with either an open or closed technique. The goal during treatment is to reduce excess cartilage, tissue, and bone, or to improve and add cartilage for a new shape. The nose is repositioned while the skin is re-draped over the newly improved framework. Sutures are implemented either inside the nose or along the natural external crease.
What to Expect
Following your rhinoplasty, you will be carefully monitored in the recovery suite, and then be released to heal at home. The nose will be bruised and swollen for a few days. In most cases, there is bruising and discoloration under the eyes as well. Ice packs and pain medication can help with these effects. Your follow-up appointment with Dr. Munasifi will take place within a couple of days following surgery so that he can evaluate your healing process. It generally takes about 2 – 4 weeks to recover from a rhinoplasty. During this recovery phase, strenuous activity should be avoided.
Optimal results following a rhinoplasty may take a few months to a year to become fully noticeable. As swelling decreases, the nose will begin to look more like the final expected outcome.
