Everything You Need to Know – And More – About Nasal Surgery

When it comes to plastic surgery here in Sacramento, nasal surgery – medically known as rhinoplasty – is one of the most popular cosmetic medical procedures among both men and women. The surgery can sculpt a more desirable looking nose by either reducing or increasing the size, or by changing its shape. Additionally, it can correct a birth defect or an imperfection resulting from injury, as well as provide relief from some breathing problems.

How Nose Surgery Is Performed

Rhinoplasty is performed under local anesthesia with either intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. Facial rejuvenation is achieved through incisions that are made to allow your surgeon access to the bone and cartilage that will be sculpted. Depending upon the extent of the procedure, nasal surgery can take from 1 to 2 hours. Prior to any cosmetic surgery procedure, be sure to follow your plastic surgeon’s instructions on taking medications and vitamins, eating, drinking and stopping smoking.

What To Expect After Your Rhinoplasty

Tape, a splint and gauze will be applied immediately following your plastic surgery to stabilize your nose. During the first 24 hours, it is natural for your face to feel puffy. Your nose might be painful and you might have a dull headache; medication can minimize any discomfort. Black eyes are to be expected, so plan to stay in bed with your head elevated the first day. Any swelling or bruising can be reduced with a cold compress. Most patients return to their normal routines within about a week, although your nose may remain somewhat swollen and sensitive for the first few weeks. During this time, it is recommended that you avoid strenuous activities that can either risk injuring your nose or raising your blood pressure. Desired results might not be seen until 6 to 12 months.
