How much does a Rhinoplasty cost?
Male rhinoplasty procedures involve a certain amount of expense and depend on the complexity of the case. A revision rhinoplasty is often more expensive than primary nasal reshaping surgery, while a non-surgical liquid rhinoplasty is the least expensive. Rather than focus on a specific number, you should concentrate on selecting a surgeon with significant experience and whom you trust to give you the results you desire. Even if the price is higher, a surgeon with expertise may save you the time and cost of a revision surgery in the future.
What is the recovery like after a Rhinoplasty?
There is moderate discomfort and nasal drainage during the first week after your surgery. While some sutures may be removed early, the taped external nasal splint will not be removed until the end of the first week. Although intranasal packing is rarely placed, you will have a difficult time breathing through your nose until the splint is removed and the nose is suctioned. The majority of swelling and bruising dissipates within the first two weeks, and most patients return to work or school within a week after surgery with certain restrictions. Patients who undergo non-surgical liquid rhinoplasty will have a few days of minimal swelling with no downtime or restrictions.
When will I see my results after a Rhinoplasty?
Once the splint is removed at the end of the first week after surgery, your nose will be straight but swollen. It is common to have “rebound swelling”, or temporary swelling of the nose, or temporary swelling of the nose, beginning a few hours after the splint is removed. It takes a few months for all residual post-operative swelling to resolve, but you will see significant results within the first few weeks. In addition, it takes a minimum of one full year (sometimes two years) for your nose to reach its final contour after surgical rhinoplasty. Patients who undergo non-surgical liquid rhinoplasty will see results immediately after injection in the office.
