More Information about Rhinoplasty – By Dr. Mofid

Rhinoplasty surgery is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery procedures. Depending upon the functional or cosmetic problem to be addressed, rhinoplasty takes anywhere from 1 to 4 hours to perform. These surgeries are almost always outpatient procedures that allow a patient to go back to work within as little as a 1 week recovery.

Typical candidates for rhinoplasty surgery include patients that suffer from breathing problems caused by underlying structural issues such as septal deviation and enlarged turbinates, traumatic injuries or from previous nasal surgery that has resulted in breathing problems. In addition, rhinoplasty or nasal surgery may be performed to shave down a bump on the nose, shorten a nose, elongate a nose, or build a nasal bridge. Most commonly, patients present for rhinoplasty surgery because they are dissatisfied with one or more aspects of their nasal appearance and/or breathing.

There are a variety of techniques available to address each of the typical complaints that patients have with their noses and this may involve a host of techniques using graft material from within the septum, the ears, the scalp, or on occasion in severe cases, from the ribs.

Patients can realistically expect improved breathing and a more aesthetically pleasing shape to the nose. Following surgery, swelling may persist for several months up to one full year following surgery. Patients may return to moderate exercise within 2 to 3 weeks following rhinoplasty and unlimited noncontact sport activity within 4 to 6 weeks. Typically, patients should refrain from engaging in contact sports for up to 12 weeks following rhinoplasty surgery.
