Rhinoplasty At a Glance
Anyone who is self-conscious about his or her nose will find that rhinoplasty offers a new found aura of confidence. The procedure can significantly enhance an individual’s facial appearance by creating a more balanced nose and an enhanced profile. A rhinoplasty procedure is completely customized to uniquely complement each individual’s face, whether your desire is to remove a bump, taper a tip, or build up nasal depressions. After a careful analysis of your concerns and medical history, Dr. Rai will help you decide if rhinoplasty can give you the results you desire.
Your nose surgery will be tailored to match your individual needs so you can achieve the most natural appearance. Typically, the skin of the nose is cut and lifted away from the bone and cartilage framework beneath, then shaped and sculpted to obtain optimum results. The incisions are most often placed inside the nose and hidden from view. When the surgery is complete, a splint may be applied to help your nose maintain its new shape. Some bruising and swelling can be expected following surgery, but applying ice and taking a mild pain reliever can offer effective relief. Keeping your head elevated and relaxing in bed is recommended for the first 24 hours following surgery.
