What Is Rhinoplasty: Nose Job at Orange County Plastic Surgery Clinic

Rhinoplasty also known as nose job, is one of the leading cosmetic procedures for both men and women. You may have considered corrective nasal surgery (a rhinoplasty) if your nose is misshapen, disproportionately large or small for your face, or if you have had an injury, which makes breathing difficult. In most cases the desired results are achieved by reshaping the cartilage and the bone. 

A rhinoplasty operation is designed to:

1. Improve the general cosmetic appearance of the patient by reducing, recontouring or reshaping the external nose;

2. Straighten a previously injured nose, and/or;

3. Improve the patient's ability to breathe. 

Preparing for Your Rhinoplasty Surgery

The cosmetic procedure of recontouring the nose (rhinoplasty) is one of the more popular operations performed by plastic surgeons today. The patient's input is always sought regarding the desired nasal change. You are encouraged to outline at least some of the things you would like to be changed in your nose and Dr. Bunkis will work on your personal strategy for your nose job operation. Prior to your rhinoplasty surgery our board certified plastic surgeon will answer all your questions and discuss the upcoming operation with you in great detail. Together you will set goals and expectations for your nose job surgery at Orange County Plastic Surgery clinic. Dr. Bunkis will tell you about the realistic outcomes in your specific and unique case. When planning the nasal surgery operation your entire facial profile will be considered. Our surgeon will give you a good idea of what can be expected following rhinoplasty surgery by working with our advanced office digital imaging system. You are encouraged to visit the doctor as many times as you feel necessary to discuss all your concerns. At Orange County Plastic Surgery clinic we use very personal approach and Dr. Bunkis will be personally discussing every matter with you.

Rhinoplasty Operation

Your operation will take around one and a half hours. The operation is usually performed under a light general or deep sedation. An anesthesiologist will be present to administer the general anesthesia and to assist with monitoring to ensure your safety. Our modern and up-to-date facilities and attentive staff will make you feel comfortable and relaxed. 

Recovery After Rhinoplasty

After rhinoplasty surgery, a conforming splint is usually applied to the nose. The patient must place ice packs over the eyes for the first two days to reduce swelling and minor discomfort. Suitable pain medication and nasal sprays will be prescribed to you.

The nasal protective splint will be removed by your surgeon, at the time of the first rhinoplasty post-operative visit, approximately a week after the rhinoplasty operation. Residual bruising may be covered with make-up. The office aesthetician can assist you with makeup application if requested. 

Although the major effect of the nasal operation will be evident in a week, subtle improvements continue to occur over a period of six to twelve months. These changes will occur so gradually that the patient will not be aware of them. 

Our attentive nurses will take care of you until the effects of anesthesia wear off. Your doctor will be available to you at all times to address all your concerns regarding your healing process both by phone and in person.
