Austin Aesthetic Nose Surgery
Austin Rhinoplasty Procedures
A rhinoplasty, or aesthetic nose surgery, reshapes the nose by reducing or increasing size, removing a bump, narrowing the span of the nostrils, changing the angle between the nose and upper lip or changing the shape of tip or bridge. Rhinoplasty may help to relieve breathing problems (in which case it may be covered by insurance). Here's an overview of our Austin aesthetic nose surgeryprocedure:
1 to 2 hours or longer.
Temporary swelling, numbness, bruising around the eyes, nose and headaches along with bleeding and stiffness. Some rhinoplasty procedures require wearing a splint or guard over the nose. Hematoma (a pooling of blood under the skin,) infection and reaction to anesthesia are normal side effects.
Smokers are expected to quit until nose is completely healed. Minor swelling may continue for months. Patients should avoid straining, bending, lifting and wearing eye glasses immediately following surgery. Back to work: 1 to 2 weeks. More strenuous activities: 2 to 3 weeks with limited exposure to sunlight.
Small burst blood vessels may appear as tiny red spots on the skinís surface. These are usually minor, but may be permanent.
Permanent, but it may take about a year for the final results to take shape. A second corrective procedure is rarely required.
