PLASTIC SURGERY CLINIC
NOSE RESHAPING (RHINOPLASTY)
Cosmetic surgery can reshape your nose, make it smaller and more refined, or larger and more noticeable. The goal is a nose that looks natural and achieves a harmonious balance with your other facial features.
Almost all the incisions used for your rhinoplasty will be carefully hidden inside your nose.
We recommend that patients wait until they are at least 14 or 15 before undergoing rhinoplasty. This is because the nose may not be fully developed at a younger age. Your rhinoplasty will be performed in the clinic under general anesthesia; you will be permitted to stay here overnight. When surgery is completed you will be taken into a recovery room where you will continue to be closely monitored.
Bruising and swelling is most apparent during the first days after surgery. A splint may have been placed on the bridge of your nose for the purpose of holding the tissues in place until they have stabilized.
You may need to continue wearing the nasal splint for up to a week.
Staff of the clinic will take care of you until the healing process is complete.
