Lafayette and San Leandro, CA Rhinoplasty
Before - After
Rhinoplasty or nose job is a procedure which is performed to reshape or to resize the nose. Many individuals dislike the appearance of their nose because of the unwanted attention that it draws to its disproprotianate elements with resepct to the rest of their face. Even a minor asymmetry can mask the beauty of other facial features.
The goal of rhinoplasty is to provide a refined shape to the nose of our San Leandro and Lafayette patients while maintaining a natural look that is agreeable with the rest of the face. Rhinoplasty involves a delicate sculpting of the nose that can produce dramatic changes to the overall facial appearance. It is critical to remember that changing the appearance of the nose is closley related to the ability to breath through the nasal passages. This intricate linkage between looks and function is the reason why rhinoplasty is considered to be one of the most challenging of all cosmetic procedures. Dr. Falsafi is uniquely qualified to achieve these goals by using fundamental reconstructive principles in order to create both a cosmetically pleasing result and a functionally superior nose.
Rhinoplasty is performed at an outpatient surgery center under general anesthesia. Most patients go home the same day after surgery. Recovery from surgery is typically five to seven days. Bruising and significant swelling commonly disappear after one to two weeks. Sutures are removed five to seven days postop. Taking a week off of work or school is not unexpected, though working from home or in environments is allowed. Light activity is ecouraged after 24 hours, but vigorous exercise including lifting weights beyond 15 pounds is discouraged for at least four to six weeks after surgery. The majority of the soft tissue swelling can take several months to subside as the nose continues to undergo healing and tissue remodeling.
