OC Cosmetic Surgery Clinique in Newport Beach, Orange County, performs one of the main procedures in our repertoire, the rhinoplasty procedure. Rhinoplasty is another term for nose job: a surgery that reshapes the nose to make it smaller, bigger, or change the angle of, correct or remove bumps, or other flaws in or on the nose.
During a rhinoplasty procedure, the surgeon will make incisions so that he/she can easily access the bones and cartilage. Also during the rhinoplasty, the incisions are made inside of the nose so that they are not visible after the rhinoplasty procedure.
A rhinoplasty may be performed using a general or local anesthesia. The procedure is usually performed as an outpatient procedure. The surgeons at OC Cosmetic Surgery Clinique are well trained and certified in performing this surgery.
Surgeons who do rhinoplasties typically have training in either plastic surgery or otolaryngology (the ears, nose, and throat). A lot of the time, they are trained in both.
What to Expect After a Rhinoplasty Procedure
The bandage and splint around your nose are usually removed at the surgeon’s office: at the OC Cosmetic Surgery Clinique, the removal is within seven to ten days.
Your face may feel puffy, and the area surrounding your nose and eyes will most likely be swollen and bruised for several days. The swelling and bruising caused by the Newport Beach rhinoplasty procedure take about 10 days to 2 weeks to show signs of improvement.
After your Orange County, Newport Beach rhinoplasty procedure, the surgeon at OC Cosmetic Surgery Clinique will recommend several weeks of light activities, nothing strenuous will be allowed until your nose completely heals.
