Understanding the Procedure
As with any of our procedures, we complete a thorough examination and consultation before proceeding with your rhinoplasty procedure. During this appointment, we will discuss your medical history and document any prescriptions you are taking. We will also perform a meticulous physical examination, which may include a blood test. Dr. Arellano will inspect the inside and outside of your nose and determine which changes you would like to make. We will take pre-surgical photographs and discuss the expectations you have for your results.
Before you undergo surgery, we ask that you avoid taking aspirin or anti-inflammatory medication which tends to increase bleeding. If you smoke, it is highly suggested that you quit, as it slows the healing process. Finally, it is important to make travel arrangements for the day of the procedure, because you will be under the effects of anesthesia and will be unable to drive.
On the day of surgery, Dr. Arellano will perform either an open or closed rhinoplasty.
- Open rhinoplasty involves making an incision across the columella (the portion of your nose between your nostrils), which provides better access to the nasal tissue and is generally used when more extensive surgery is needed
- To perform closed rhinoplasty, two incisions are made inside of your nostrils and is popular because it produces minimal scarring.
For a few weeks after surgery, you can expect to experience some swelling and soreness. You will notice a cosmetic enhancement immediately after surgery, but your results will continue to improve as the healing process progresses.
If you feel as if the symmetry of your facial features could be improved by reshaping your nose, you may be a candidate for rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty can:
- Change the angle of your nose
- Subtract or add to the overall size of your nose
- Straighten the bridge of your nose
- Correct birth defects
- Improve some breathing conditions
- Repair a traumatic injury
Rhinoplasty is most commonly performed on patients who are self-conscious of a dissymmetry in their facial features. The size and shape of your nose can have a tremendous affect on the appearance of your chin, eyes, and smile. Rhinoplasty can also help correct breathing problems and sinus conditions.
