Nose job: what to expect

An outpatient procedure, rhinoplasty  is performed while a patient is under deep sedation and local anesthesia or a lift general anesthesia. Depending on the technique used and the patient’s unique needs, surgery will usually last 1 ½ hours. Dr. Bunkis can offer you two types of rhinoplasty at Orange County Plastic Surgery – open and closed rhinoplasty.

Open or external rhinoplasty is performed with a small transcolumellar incision. This gives access to the middle and lower parts of the nose. Open rhinoplasty corrects cosmetic and functional defects, leaving minimal, inconspicuous scars.

Closed or endonasal rhinoplasty allows you to change the appearance of your nose. Incisions inside the nostrils minimize scarring and swelling. This procedure is usually recommended as a primary rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty Results

The first step after rhinoplasty is the stabilizing splint, which will stay with the patient for about a day. At the follow-up appointment after one day, the splint will be replaced by a special external bandage, which will be left for another two to three days. Slight pain, discomfort and bruising will subside within two to four weeks. The swelling may persist for up to 2 months and gradually decrease.

As the swelling decreases, the shape of the nose will change until it is as planned. The final result will be fully formed within a year. Usually the result will last a lifetime.
