Rhinoplasty is the most common cosmetic procedure performed today. The procedure modifies the nose by changing its size, or sculpturing the nasal structures. So the nose is in harmony with other facial features.

Surgery may also improve nasal breathing when the septum is deviated or the patient suffers from allergies or sinus problems.

Twilight sleep is administered by I.V., and the patient in most cases is asleep throughout the procedure. The operation usually takes one to two hours. All incisions are internal except in rare instances when the base or tip of the nose must be narrowed. In all cases, the incisions are well hidden.

So the nose is in harmony with the other facial features.

There is minimal pain after nasal surgery and it is usually controlled with mild analgesics. A splint or cast is placed on the nose for approximately five to six days.

Medication is given to keep swelling at a minimum though some swelling and bruising may occur around the eyes usually lasting 7 to 10 days. When the splint is removed there may be some nasal swelling. This usually resolves quickly so it is not obvious to friends and acquaintances. The patient is restricted from strenuous physical activities for approximately three weeks.

With nasal surgery, there is a possibility of contour irregularities, or asymmetries, which usually resolve with time. On occasion a minor secondary procedure is required.
