Frequently Asked Questions

Is the fear of surgery normal?

Yes, and this fear is always elevated when surgery involves the face. However, more than 350,000 people in the U.S. undergo rhinoplasty each year making it one of the most common cosmetic surgeries. One way to help calm your fears is to make sure you find a reputable and skilled surgeon that has extensive experience with nose surgery. 

What is a nasal pack?

What is the downtime?

Nasal packing is the insertion of gauze and/or cotton packs into the nasal chamber after surgery. These are used to control bleeding, but are not necessary 100% of the time. They are generally used if the surgery includes the septum. 

Visible swelling and bruising is usually dissipating 10 to 14 days after the procedure. Most patients are able to return to work or school in approximately 10 days. Most of the swelling subsides in the nose within two months after the procedure, however, full healing does take one year to see the final result.

Will my nose be broken?

Is surgery the only answer?

About half of rhinoplasty patients will benefit from a manual nasal fracture during surgery. This planned break allows access to perform certain functions during surgery such as narrowing the width of the nose or correcting an asymmetrical nose. This is a common practice and heals within just a few weeks following surgery. 

Noses that are too large or too wide, or have a specific deformity may only be able to be enhanced through nose surgery. However, the look of some noses may be able to be enhanced using an injectable filler such as collagen, calcium hydroxyapatite, or fat taken from another part of the body, “injection rhinoplasty” may be an option before resorting to surgery. This is an in-office procedure that can help to soften and camouflage a bump, alter the tip of the nose, and smooth out irregularities.   

How can I reduce swelling or bruising?

Stay away from medications and herbal/natural supplements that increase your bleeding and bruising risk. After surgery you should also adhere to icing instructions, and your head of bed should be elevated so the swelling dissipates away from the nose
