Am I a candidate for rhinoplasty?
Candidates for this procedure are usually over the age of 15, and seek to improve the appearance of their nose, improve their breathing or correct a birth defect. We recommend you to refer to one of our certified plastic surgeon for an evaluation to determine if this surgery is the best option for you.
Is the surgery painful?
You will be under general anesthesia during surgery and as such you will not feel anything. After surgery, is normal to feel some mild discomfort and swelling around the nose, your plastic surgeon will prescribe you the appropriate painkillers if needed.
Do I need a closed or an open rhinoplasty?
This depends entirely on your needs; if you need more extensive changes to get to your ideal nose you could require open surgery. Your specialist will speak with you and determine which procedure best suits you.
How long will recovery be?
Depending on the patient, they can return to work after a week or two from surgery. The swelling will continue to disappear over the course of 6 months until your new nose is fully recovered.
