   Your Los Angeles Rhinoplasty Nose Surgery

        Having a natural looking , well proportioned nose that is harmonious with your face is a goal that many patients desire. The nose is located in the center of the face and is often the first facial feature that others will notice.  The most common cause of a non-harmonious nose is due to heredity.  It maybe a family trait that is passed on from one generation to the next. Sometimes the cause of the nose problem can be due to a traumatic injury or medical illness.  Regardless of the cause, rhinoplasty nose surgery is a procedure that can greatly improve the look of your nose and the balance of your face. 

        What is a Rhinoplasty Nose Surgery?

Rhinoplasty nose surgery is a commonly used term for the surgical procedure that corrects and improves the shape, size, general appearance, and function of your nose.  It is a procedure that can improve your breathing if your nose has airway obstruction due to a deviated nasal septum or collapse of the cartilage of your nose. Rhinoplasty nose surgery can be performed for cosmetic or reconstructive reasons. Cosmetic rhinoplasty nose surgery are done strictly to make your nose look better, and reconstructive rhinoplasty nose surgery are done to improve the function and breathing of your nose.

        Ideal Candidate for Rhinoplasty Nose Surgery

Rhinoplasty nose surgery can be performed on men and women. For the younger patients it is recommended that you wait until the nose is fully grown. This means age 13 or 14 for girls and 14 or 15 for boys.  Patients decided on rhinoplasty nose surgery should be healthy both medically and emotionally.

        What is Involved in the Rhinoplasty Nose Surgery Consultation?

Scheduling a rhinoplasty nose surgery consultation is the first step in the process.  A rhinoplasty nose surgery consultation is designed to fully educate you about rhinoplasty nose surgery in a comfortable environment.  The consultation will include a discussion of your goals and an evaluation of your individual case.  A physical examination of your nose will be performed.  There will also be a discussion of your likely outcome of your rhinoplasty nose surgery, the risk and complications associated with a rhinoplasty nose surgery, and course of surgical treatment.  The success and safety of your rhinoplasty nose surgery requires that you fully disclose your health history, current medications, the use of vitamins, herbal supplements, alcohol, tobacco, and drugs.

        What Anatomically is Involved in Rhinoplasty Nose Surgery?

        How do I Prepare for Rhinoplasty Nose Surgery?

After your rhinoplasty nose surgery consultation and deciding to have your surgery, you will be scheduled for a pre-operative appointment. During your pre-operative appointment, you will be given prescriptions for the medications you will need after the rhinoplasty nose surgery.   You may need to have some basic diagnostic tests and lab work to ensure that you are fit for rhinoplasty nose surgery.  You will be instructed on medications and vitamins to avoid, like asprin, before your surgery.  It is important that you maintain a healthy diet before and after your surgery.  The risks and possible complications will be explained to you, and a rhinoplasty nose surgery informed consent will be signed by you.  It is important that you address all your questions directly with your plastic surgeon.  It is natural to feel some anxiety, whether excitement for the anticipated rhinoplasty nose surgery outcomes or pre-operative stress.

        Where is the Rhinoplasty Nose Surgery Performed?

A rhinoplasty nose surgery may be performed in your plastic surgeon's accredited office-based surgical facility, an ambulatory surgical facility or a hospital, possibly with an overnight stay.  It is more commonly performed under general anesthesia, although local anesthesia with sedation may be also used.  Theses decisions will be based on the requirements of your specific rhinoplasty nose surgery and considerations of patient and surgeon preference.

        How do I Choose the Right Plastic Surgeon to Perform My Rhinoplasty Nose Surgery?

Choosing to have a rhinoplasty nose surgery is a very important decision; so is selecting a plastic surgeon.  The most important consideration is BOARD CERTIFICATION by The American Board of Plastic Surgery.  Not all physicians who perform plastic surgery or who use the title plastic surgeon are board certified in plastic surgery.  The American Board of Plastic Surgery is the only board where plastic surgeons have completed extensive surgical training and rigorous examinations in plastic surgery which qualifies them to perform cosmetic and reconstructive procedures of the face and body.

        What is the Recovery After Rhinoplasty Nose Surgery?

Although everyone heals at a different rate and the complexity of the rhinoplasty nose surgery is individualized, you can expect to recover will this general time line.  During the first two days, you should rest with your head elevated to help minimize swelling; activity is kept to a minimum; and you will experience a small amount of bleeding and stuffiness.  By the 10 day period, the swelling will have reached its peak and then begin to subside; bruising will diminish; sutures and packing will be removed; the splint will be removed; and you will be able to return back to light activity. After several weeks you can resume your normal activities and most of the swelling will have subsided.

        When will I see the Results After Rhinoplasty Nose Surgery?

The results of a rhinoplasty nose surgery are visible almost immediately after surgery.  However, it does take a full year before your final result. Numbness and firmness over the skin surface will resolve over the following months. It may also take a year or more for incision lines to fade. The final results of rhinoplasty are permanent. However, time and gravity can minimally change the soft tissue overlying your nose.

        Can a Rhinoplasty Nose Surgery be Performed with Other Procedures?

It is possible to have a rhinoplasty nose surgery done with other procedures. Rhinoplasty nose surgery is commonly performed with other facial procedures like chin implants and face lifts.  Rhinoplasty can also be combined with body procedures like breast augmentation. The advantage of combining the procedures is that it allows for one recovery time, thus, missing less time off work or time away from your family. While the rhinoplasty nose surgery is healing so is the second procedure.
