The Nose of Your Dreams

What is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is a procedure that involves the reconstruction and reshaping of the nose. This is done for cosmetic purposes if you are unsatisfied with the shape or size of your nose or medical purposes if you suffer from compromised airways due to a medical condition or injury.

The Steps to Excellence

Rhinoplasty Preparation

You should avoid smoking, drinking, direct sun exposure, and any anti-inflammatory medications two weeks prior to your procedure. This ensures that your body has healthy blood flow for optimal recovery.

Reshaping your Confidence

Rhinoplasty Recovery, Results, and Aftercare

You can expect a bit of swelling and bruising after your procedure. The bruising will fade within a week or two, but the swelling may take up to three months to completely dissipate. You should avoid strenuous activity, coughing, sneezing, alcohol, smoking, and anti-inflammatory medications to ensure you achieve the best results possible. After about two weeks, most of our Atlanta Rhinoplasty patients find they are ready to confidently return to socializing in public. Full results will occur anywhere from six months to a year after your procedure.

Maintaining your Rhinoplasty Results

Dr. Santosa offers supplements to her Atlanta Rhinoplasty patients for faster healing of bruises. She will contact you within twenty-four hours of your procedure for a follow-up. She will also give you contact information in order to reach out to her if you ever have any questions or concerns during your recovery.

Risks with Rhinoplasty procedures are rare but possible. These risks include excessive bleeding, infection, nerve damage that causes permanent numbness of the nose, and difficulty breathing.
