Before your procedure, you’ll need to have a consultation

Dr. Freeman will make incisions inside your nose
When it’s time for your surgery, your rhinoplasty expert will make an incision on the inside of your nose. Or, if he’s working on your nostrils he’ll make an incision in between them. Then, he’ll get to work reshaping your nose. Despite popular belief, he doesn’t break the bone in your nose to reshape it, instead he manipulates the cartilage in the nose to make it look like you imagined.

You’ll experience bruising and swelling after surgery
It’s important to plan for your recovery from surgery as much as you need to plan for the actual surgery itself. You should be sure to have someone who can drive you home after surgery and who can stay with you a while after while you recover as well. You’ll experience bruising and swelling around your nose and face, so it’s important to keep your head elevated for the first few days. Dr. Freeman may also recommend applying ice and antibiotics to prevent infection.

The bruising and swelling will go down within a week or two. But, it is important to protect your nose while it heals completely. This means taking precautions not to bump it when putting on clothing and even glasses. You should also protect your nose from the sun with sunglasses and a hat. Your rhinoplasty expert will discuss what you need to know for recovery prior to surgery so you’ll have time to prepare.
