Rhinoplasty: Before and After Photos
Am I a candidate for rhinoplasty?
At what age is rhinoplasty best performed?
The optimum time to reshape your nose is when you’re ready to take control of your appearance. Correction during the teenage years may be appropriate in certain cases. Many adults have disliked and felt embarrassed by the shape or size of their nose for years, but they may not have the nerve or the finances to undertake surgery until they’re over 70 years old! Set up a consultation to discuss the best option for you.
Does rhinoplasty leave scars?
The incisions used for rhinoplasty are usually concealed inside your nose; scars are therefore not visible. When an external incision is necessary, it can be hidden in the crease where the nostril meets the cheek.
How long will it take to recover?
Restricting physical activity for a day or two after surgery helps reduce bleeding and minimize swelling. Most bruising and discoloration disappears within a week; the rest can be concealed after a few days with makeup. Residual swelling can be expected to remain for several weeks, but this is usually not noticeable by others. Strenuous physical activity and contact sports should be avoided for four to six weeks to allow complete healing to take place.
