WHAT IS a Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure to improve facial harmony and the proportions of your nose. It can also correct impaired breathing caused by structural defects of the nose.
Rhinoplasty can change:
- Nose size in relation to overall proportions of the face
- Nose profiles with noticeable bumps or depressions
- Nose width at the bridge
- Nasal tip
- Nasal Asymmetry
DURING AND AFTER YOUR SURGERY
Anaesthesia Type: General (patients are asleep)
Duration of Surgery: 2-3 hrs
In/Outpatient: Patients go home the same day and are seen by Dr. Matic the following day
Length of Recovery and Return to Work: Patients are usually off work or school for about a week, some may need 10-14 days. The nose is generally healed by 6 weeks and this is enough to return to normal activity including sports
Final Results: Swelling, especially in the tip, can take a long time to resolve so final result is generally said to be one year from the surgery but at 3 months things look very close to final result
Post-Operative Medication: Pain killers and antibiotics are given
Pricing: Depends on the extent and/or type of procedure
