Rhinoplasty in Austin
About an Austin Rhinoplasty Procedure
Oftentimes a deviated septum may lead to a crooked nose and can even impair breathing. A rhinoplasty in Austin can straighten the nose and help improve breathing. In addition, the entire nose can be reshaped to remove a hump, sculpt and define the tip and even narrow the width of the nose. Surgical repair of these nasal problems may be covered by your health insurance.
Nose surgery may last 1 to 2 hours or longer in some cases.
Austin Rhinoplasty Side Effects
Temporary swelling, numbness, bruising around the eyes, nose and headaches along with bleeding and stiffness. Some Austin 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.
Recovery from Rhinoplasty in Austin
Smokers are expected to quit smoking until the nose is completely healed. Minor swelling may continue for a few months. Patients should avoid straining, bending, lifting, and wearing eye glasses immediately following the nose 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, which are usually minor, but may be permanent.
Results of Austin Rhinoplasty
Permanent, but it may take about a year for the final results to take shape. A second, corrective procedure is rarely required. After your Austin rhinoplasty at APSI, your nose will be free of bumps and imperfections that make it look large, therefore it will look smaller and more proportional to your face.
