Your nose is central to your face. When your nose seems disproportionate to your face or oddly shaped, it can have a drastic effect on your overall appearance, causing feelings of insecurity. Dr. Patino has performed thousands of nose surgeries to help patients achieve a more balanced, beautiful face.
How Is Nose Surgery Performed?
The nose surgery procedure may include any of the following:
- Removal of excess cartilage in the nose
- Reshaping the bridge of the nose
- Reshaping the nostril
- Reshaping the internal nose structures (for those with trouble breathing)
At your initial rhinoplasty consultation, Dr. Patino will review the techniques that will be used during your surgery. Each patient is unique, so each surgery will vary accordingly.
What Can I Expect After Rhinoplasty?
The sutures generally need to stay in for two to five days, during which time you may experience some mild discomfort. Dr. Patino will be able to prescribe pain medications to deal with these issues. Dr. Patino may also apply a splint to the nose which will need to remain in place for up to a week.
You may need to wait up to two weeks to resume normal activities, including work. This time is necessary for your body to heal appropriately and is minimal in comparison to the long-lasting results of your nose surgery. Dr. Patino will instruct you on how to avoid additional bruising, swelling, and redness during your rhinoplasty recovery period.
How Much Does Rhinoplasty Cost in Oakland?
