Before the surgery:

How is the surgery done?
Most rhinoplasties are performed under general anesthesia.
In some cases, the procedure can be performed under local anesthesia, with oral sedation and local anesthetic injections. The nose and surrounding area are numb; however, the patient remains awake during surgery.
The surgical approach of choice is the open approach where the incision is made under and inside the nose allowing the skin to be lifted from the nasal structures. This approach allows for better surgical visualization improving the surgeon’s ability to accurately define the shape, size and location of the result.
The closed approach is sometimes used because of its limitations. This approach consists of a surgical incision just inside the nostril.
The surgical needs of each patient vary:
- Some patients may require septoplasty to correct septal cartilage deviations.
- Some patients may need a reduction of the back hump to correct the profile.
- While others may need a broken nasal bone to reduce the width of the nasal bridge
After the surgery:
After nose surgery, patients have swelling throughout the nose and often in the cheeks. They receive instructions on the use of ice and the importance of keeping the head at 30 degrees at all times to minimize swelling. It means sleeping with 2 or 3 pillows or sitting in a reclining chair.
The pain is alleviated by oral analgesics.
Congestion or nasal dryness is a common symptom that can be treated with the use of nasal saline. Frequently, nasal bleeding is present for about 24 hours and it is very important not to blow your nose during this time.
Most of the swelling will dissipate in 2 to 3 weeks; however it is necessary to wait between 6 months and 1 year for the swelling to disappear completely.
The surgeon can advise patients about nasal massage approximately 2 weeks after the surgery to facilitate the healing process.
