How Is Rhinoplasty Surgery Performed?

The procedure is performed as an outpatient in our state of the art surgery center under light general anesthesia. Depending on the surgical plan and your medical history, there may be options for other types of anesthesia.

At our Wesley Chapel office, you will be in the skillful hands and care of our Dr. Ambay, who will use one of the following approaches to achieve your desired goal.

  • Closed, minimally invasive approach where incisions are only made inside the nose.
  • Open rhinoplasty where a small incision is made in an inconspicuous place between the nostrils and inside the nose

These incisions provide access to the structures of the nose that need correction. It enables Dr. Ambay to reshape the nose through the removal of bone, reshaping cartilage, adding cartilage or straightening out a deviated septum.

Dr Ambay will then re-drape the skin to reflect the refinements of the nose and close the incisions.  Tape will be placed on your skin to help maintain the newly created shape and a splint is used when bones are reshaped.

Ideal Candidate for Rhinoplasty

You may be an ideal candidate for a nose job if you are in good health and struggle with the following:

  • You are unhappy with the appearance, shape or size of your nose
  • You suffer from sinus problems
  • You have a deviated septum

What to Expect During Recovery

You may be surprised to know that rhinoplasty is relatively painless when compared with other plastic surgery procedures. Most patients take pain meds for a day or two then switch to tylenol. During your recovery, expect swelling and bruising around the eyes. You will need to keep your head elevated for at least 24 hours after your surgery to help reduce the swelling.  Small baggies of ice will further help to reduce swelling. If you have a nasal splint, it will be removed in 7 days. The tape is also removed and replaced for another week and instructions for week two will be given.

If you have undergone a closed minimally invasive rhinoplasty then no removal of sutures are needed as they will all dissolve on their own. In an open rhinoplasty, there will be approximately three sutures which will be removed  on the seventh day.  All splints are removed on day 7 as well. Low salt diet will reduce the time you will be swollen. By three weeks, the bruising, swelling, and redness will have faded and you may resume exercising at about 4-6 weeks. Its important to understand that your surgery is specifically tailored to your needs so there will always be variations in the timing of your healing.

Dr. Ambay and his staff will give you specific instructions at the pre-operative visit to follow during your recovery period. These instructions must be followed with great care to ensure optimal healing. It will include instructions on the application of medication, caring for your surgical site, and follow up appointments.

Once you have fully  recovered from nose surgery, it could take up to 6 months to a year for all the very fine and subtle  refinements to be visible.
