Rhinoplasty Q & A

What is rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty, also known as a “nose job,” is a type of plastic surgery that Dr. Johnson offers to correct imperfections in your nose’s structure or function. She personalizes each rhinoplasty procedure based on how you’d like your new nose to look. 

Dr. Johnson might make it smaller, narrower, smoother, or more aesthetically pleasing. She has many years of experience completing rhinoplasties and similar cosmetic procedures.

What are the benefits of rhinoplasty?

Some of the benefits associated with rhinoplasty at 817 Surgical Arts include:

  • Easier breathing
  • Improved profile
  • Self-confidence
  • Better quality of life

You can help choose the size, shape, and overall appearance of your new nose. Dr. Johnson will work with you to match your cosmetic goals, and she exceeds patient expectations time and time again.

How should I prepare for rhinoplasty?

To find out if rhinoplasty is for you, Dr. Johnson examines your nose and reviews your medical history. She takes several preoperative photos, asks about your desired results, lets you know what to expect during the procedure, and discusses the ways to best prepare for your surgery.

You might need blood tests before your scheduled procedure. Stop taking medicines or supplements if Dr. Johnson asks you to, avoid foods and drinks the morning of surgery, and make arrangements for someone to drive you home afterward.

What should I expect during the procedure?

Before undergoing a rhinoplasty, you receive localized numbing and anesthesia to help you feel relaxed or fall asleep. Dr. Johnson uses strategically placed incisions to remove, repair or replace tissues as needed to help achieve your goals. She may place gauze, a splint, and/or bandages on or in your nose before taking you to a recovery area.

What happens during my recovery?

Have a friend or family member drive you home after the procedure and stay with you. Follow your post-care instructions to ensure proper healing. Get plenty of sleep, take medicines as directed, and attend follow-up visits with Dr. Johnson to ensure your nose heals properly. 

Avoid strenuous activity, blowing your nose, sneezing through your nose, vigorously brushing your teeth, or making extreme facial expressions until Dr. Johnson says it’s okay to do so. You will also be asked to sleep with your head slightly elevated.
