Rhinoplasty (commonly known as a “nose job”) is a cosmetic surgery procedure to improve the shape of the nose in order to correct life-long issues, or deformities that resulted from an injury. Rhinoplasty can also undertaken to relieve nasal obstruction or breathing problems because of the irregularities in the internal structure of the nose.
Patient will have a splint taped outside the nose. There usually are no packs placed inside the nose. Patient may go home the same day after surgery. The splint and sutures will be removed after 1 week. Mild swelling around the nose and slight oozing of blood is expected for few days after operation. There may be some numbness of nasal tip for few months.
The vast majority of patients are extremely satisfied with rhinoplasty procedure.
