The goal of rhinoplasty is to aesthetically reshape the nose to the patient’s liking. This procedure is performed under general anesthesia. Incisions are generally made inside the nose to provide access to the nasal dorsum, tip and septum. Patients are required to wear a nasal splint for compression for 1 week after surgery. Patients may have difficulty with nasal breathing for the first week secondary to nasal swelling and obstruction from nasal discharge. It’s important to keep the head elevated as much as possible to decrease the amount of post-operative swelling. Infection and hematomas are uncommon. Over or under correction are rare complications.
