Your nose is the most prominent feature on your face. You shouldn’t have to be embarrassed by it. At the Cosmetic Surgical Center of Dallas Dr. Vasdev Rai can help you design the nose that balances out your natural features and gives you the confidence you need to face the world.
Designing Your Look
The first and most important step in getting your new look is meeting with Dr. Rai in our Dallas plastic surgery office for an initial consultation. During this time, you will establish the goals for your cosmetic nose surgery. Dr. Rai will listen to your concerns about your appearance and discuss the results you can expect from the procedure.
Dr. Rai will make a detailed plan for your rhinoplasty operation and review all of the steps for your procedure and recovery with you so that you feel comfortable with the process.
The Rhinoplasty Procedure
In a preoperative meeting, your final questions will be answered, photographs of your nose are taken, and you will be given prescriptions for any medications you will need during recovery.
Your rhinoplasty procedure will take about 60-90 minutes, and you will be able to return home after an additional 60-90 minutes of recovery. You will have a skin-colored splint molded onto your nose for support and protection and padding under your nose to absorb drainage, which usually stops within 24 hours.
Dr. Rai will call you on the evening of your surgery to check in and see if you have any questions.
Your splint will be removed 5-7 days after surgery. You should expect some swelling and bruising of the nose and cheeks at this point. You will begin to see results within the first few weeks, but it takes 12-18 months to achieve the final outcome as swelling gradually settles and the skin of your nose adapts to the change in structure.
