About Rhinoplasty Surgery
Patients typically undergo rhinoplasty in an outpatient basis and will return home the day of the surgery. Depending on the extent of the necessary revisions, either local or general anesthesia is given. Local anesthetic numbs the area so that the patient is awake, but does not feel pain during surgery. General anesthesia puts the patient to sleep completely for the entire procedure. In most cases, incisions are made within the nostrils in order to perform the necessary work. Sometimes there will be a need to make cuts at the bottom of the nose in order to perform more extensive restructuring. To achieve the desired look, Dr. Yarish reshapes the bone and cartilage within the nose.
Recovery from Rhinoplasty
Because a nose job is an invasive procedure, it’s important that patients take some time off for recovery. A nasal splint will be worn for approximately the first week after surgery. Bruising and swelling around the eye area is normal and usually dissipates within about three days. However, patients should be aware that it can sometimes take up to two weeks for these effects to diminish completely. The nose itself will also be swollen, but this swelling should be minimal. The healing period of the nose is gradual and last for approximately six months. Upon complete healing, the final results will be revealed. Rhinoplasty candidates may be advised to avoid strenuous activities for at least three to six weeks following the procedure.
