What can be achieved with a rhinoplasty?
A nose job, or rhinoplasty, is a surgical procedure used to improve the appearance of the nose. It can be performed for cosmetic reasons, to correct a birth defect, or medically to help improve breathing when issues such as a deviated septum. The rhinoplasty procedure can:
- Change the size of your nose
- Change the shape of your nose
- Change the angle between your nose and upper lip
- Correct a congenital disability or injury
- Improve breathing by correcting a structural problem in your nose
What is the recovery like following a rhinoplasty?
Most patients report minor pain following their rhinoplasty surgery. You will likely have some swelling and bruising around your eyes, which should dissipate within a week or two. Most patients take approximately one week off from work or school to recover. Strenuous activity and exercise should be avoided for at least four weeks after surgery and can resume with approval from Dr. Wayne P. Foster. Patients who closely follow their aftercare instructions and schedule a post-operative follow-up with their doctor can significantly reduce their risk of complications such as infection.
