Rhinoplasty revision is performed under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis, so you can return home to recover.
This procedure is performed through an open or closed surgical approach, similar to a regular rhinoplasty. During a closed approach, incisions are created inside of the nose, while an open approach involves an incision between the nostrils. In some cases, extra cartilage may be needed to create structural support for the bridge or tip of the nose. This cartilage is often collected from other areas of the body including the ear and rib. The doctors at North Valley Cosmetic Surgery will correct your nose using the necessary approaches, which may include rebuilding tissues, treating humps or bumps, removing bone and cartilage, or more.
Following rhinoplasty revision, you will experience swelling and bruising of the nose. Prescription pain medications can help to control any discomfort that may occur. Most patients can resume their normal activities after about 10 days, though exercise and lifting heavy objects should be avoided for at least three weeks. Our team will provide you with specific post-op instructions to ensure that your nose heals properly for the best possible results.
