Featuring a Dr. Finn Favorite: Rhinoplasty!
Q: How old do you have to be to have a rhinoplasty?
A: In young adults, rhinoplasty is best done after the face has reached adult size, and there is substantial emotional maturity. This is typically around 18 years old. Surgery is a permanent, life-changing event, and the decision to proceed needs to be considered carefully as a family. Occasionally, when there is significant breathing difficulties, rhinoplasty can be done at a younger age.
Q: Is rhinoplasty painful?
A: All surgery has some discomfort. People are often pleasantly surprised how easy rhinoplasty recovery is. Some patients will require pain pills afterwards, but many do well with no narcotics at all. Bruising is typically mild, and by the time the splint comes off at seven days, the nose looks good.
Q: How long does it take to see the final result from rhinoplasty?
A: Although the nose will look better when the splint comes off, final healing from rhinoplasty can take one or two years. Typically, 80% of the swelling is gone after six weeks, but some people will notice changes even after two years. People with thicker skin take longer for final resolution of swelling. It is very important to have reasonable expectations for rhinoplasty and to have the patience to wait for the final result.
Q: How do I know what my nose will look like after surgery?
A: At our practice, we perform 3D computer imaging to help you understand what goals are achievable. In addition, seeing many photographs of before and after rhinoplasty surgery patients can be very helpful to understand what rhinoplasty can do. Each nose is different, and each surgery will have different goals. The key with all surgeries is to have a normally functioning nose that looks well-proportioned and entirely natural.
