After a Rhinoplasty in Melbourne, Florida you may experience some side effects. It takes a while for intranasal swelling to resolve. I generally advise my patients that their breathing will often be worse for 6-8 weeks after surgery. I'd suggest, though, scheduling an appointment with our office so someone can take a look inside your nose to ensure that all is well and the swelling will resolve. If it is really bothersome and all else looks good inside your nose, we may decide to prescribe a steroid nasal inhaler to provide relief as you continue to heal.
Dr. Clevens offers computerized preview imaging that may help you to visualize the results of your Rhinoplasty. Dr. Clevens believes that the goal of Rhinoplasty should be a nose that looks and feels natural and is in harmony with the rest of the face without having an "operated upon" appearance.
Half a million Americans interested in improving their nasal contour seek consultation with a facial plastic surgeon each year. If you are one of these people who are looking to help your nasal appearance, contour, profile, or breathing and sinus function then consider Rhinoplasty.
If you are considering facial cosmetic surgery, call our office at 321.727.3223 to schedule an appointment. We would love to meet with you and discuss the best treatment options available to you.
