Ethnic rhinoplasty is a cosmetic procedure used to correct and reconstruct the form, restore the functions, and aesthetically enhance the nose on a patient of ethnic background.
Recovery & Healing
During the recovery process, patients will experience some swelling and bruising as a result of the surgery. Typically there is bruising and swelling around the eyes as well as the nose.
It is advised that patients keep their heads elevated and relatively still for the first few days after surgery, to help with the healing process. A cold compress can be used to help reduce the swelling. Dr. Repta will prescribe pain medication to help with any discomfort following the surgery.
Typically the recovery time for ethnic rhinoplasty is about 2 weeks, and while initial swelling and bruising subsides within a few weeks, it may take up to one year for your new nasal contour to fully refine. During this time you will notice gradual changes in the appearance of your nose as it refines to its final result.
