All about rhinoplasty

The best candidates for rhinoplasty should be in good physical health, and have realistic goals and expectations for the surgery. Dr. TerKonda will meet with you to conduct a complete physical examination and review your medical history and goals. He will evaluate the structure of your nose to ensure that rhinoplasty is the proper procedure for your needs. If you suffer from certain chronic health conditions, then rhinoplasty might not be the right option for you.

Rhinoplasty can help restore your confidence if you are unhappy with the appearance of your nose. The surgical procedure can also help correct certain things. Dr. TerKonda performs nose surgeries using general anesthesia and as an outpatient surgical procedure. He can conduct various rhinoplasty surgical methods to gain the results you seek. During nose surgery, the surgical team can perform either an open method or a closed approach. The goal is to remove any extra cartilage, tissue, or bone and then to build and reshape the cartilage. Finally, the noise is positioned, and the skin is affixed. Dr. TerKonda will place sutures either on the nose’s interior or in the external crease.

Following rhinoplasty surgery, you will experience some swelling, bruising, and soreness for a few days. You can use prescription pain medication and ice packs. After 48 – 72 hours, you’ll need a follow-up check to ensure that you are healing correctly. It usually takes from 2 – 4 weeks to heal. During the recovery process, you should avoid strenuous activities.
