A Temecula closed rhinoplasty lets individuals feel better about the shape and size of their noses. It also allows them to achieve their dream noses without any outer incisions that can be seen. For years, most rhinoplasties used the open technique, which left visible scars on the tissue that separates the nostrils. However, once the closed rhinoplasty was developed, individuals could feel more confident that people would not know that they had undergone nose jobs.
A closed rhinoplasty can accomplish many of the same goals as an open rhinoplasty does. It can be used to correct bumps, change the angle of the nose in relation to the lips, change the shape of the tip of the nose or correct other abnormalities, such as lumps and bumps. With some simple incisions inside the nose, Temecula patients can emerge from the anesthesia with a new look to their faces.
Following the procedure, which may take up to two hours, the patient will recover briefly in a post-operative unit before returning home a couple of hours later. Temecula patients will be given a complete list of follow-up instructions that will help their noses heal up quickly. For example, individuals should be careful not to sneeze or blow their noses until given the okay. They should also rest with their heads elevated to decrease nasal swelling.
