Visit San Diego Rhinoplasty

If you are looking for a more symmetrical nose, you would do well to keep in mind that everyone’s face is asymmetric to a certain degree. Results may vary, and may not be completely symmetric, as in a painting or a drawing, although the end goal is to bring about facial balance so that the nose looks absolutely proportional to your face.

You must also remember that Rhinoplasty is a delicate operation that requires careful planning and superb technique. It is regarded as one of the most challenging plastic surgery jobs. Your end result will, needless to say, depend on the surgical experience and craftsmanship of your San Diego rhinoplasty surgeon.

It is also very important that you go through all available before-after photos, taken from multiple angles, so that your surgeon can evaluate and determine and even show you the type of result you are likely to get after a nose jOB.

Surgical philosophy of rhinoplasty

It is important to remember that rhinoplasty surgery is partly art and partly science. The artistic part involves the surgeon listening to his or her patient’s desires for improvement, and then blending these desires with his own aesthetic skills and craftsmanship to obtain the best possible result. The goal is to create an attractive, aesthetic nose that is in perfect balance with the face, but will also be natural-looking. A rhinoplasty by an experienced surgeon will help you build a nose that will retain its structural firmness, aesthetic appeal as well as its functionality as a respiratory organ.

The San Diego rhinoplasty Surgery

In many cases rhinoplasty can be performed without any external incisions. If the nose requires advanced tip sculpting, or reconstruction of the middle third of the nose, you are likely to be a candidate for “Open Rhinoplasty.” If the surgeon goes takes the open approach, he will be making a short incision along the bottom part of the nose, and this will allow direct visualization of the nasal components. This open rhinoplasty incision generally heals pretty fast and you are just left with a negligible scar which is of no concern to the patient. An expert facial or San Diego rhinoplasty surgeon is equally at ease with an “open” or “endonasal” approach, and the surgeon looking after you, will select an approach that suits best for your nose.

The San Diego rhinoplasty procedure may take one, two or even three hours, as situations demand, and is usually performed at our AAAHC certified surgical facility which is fully staffed with experts in medical field.

Most of our San Diego rhinoplasty patients generally go home the same afternoon, but  some patients who have to travel quite a distance prefer to stay overnight in the nearby luxury hotels. The anesthesia used for a nose job is usually a general anesthesia or IV sedation, depending on the preference of the patient and the length of the surgical procedure.

San Diego rhinoplasty recovery

When you regain consciousness after surgery, your nose will be covered with a stout external splint, which holds the nasal bones in place and protects the nose. The splint will remain in place for a week. While pain is normally quite minimal, all patients receive pain medication, as well as a brief course of antibiotics to get rid of the swelling. Breathing is generally stuffy the first night, but the next day you will return to our office for a brief post-operative visit and a small bit of gauze will be taken out of your nostrils. You should then be able to breathe normally and without any discomfort.

Many patients are likely to join work or school after two to three days, but generally most prefer to take a week’s vacation around this period of recuperation. While you may get some post-surgery swelling and occasional bruising after rhinoplasty, your nose will look quite normal after a week. Post-operative swelling will gradually subside after a month, however you may notice subtle changes or irritations or occasional discomforts for up to 3 months and in rare cases even for a year.
