Rhinoplasty Before & After
What is a Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty, one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures, can help men and women of various ages correct or improve the shape or size of their nose. Most patients hope for a nose that’s in better proportion to the rest of their facial features.
This Orange County nose job procedure can also be helpful for people with breathing problems or those who have broken their nose.
For the most part, a rhinoplasty will address issues such as the nasal bump or nasal hump on top of the nose, a large or crooked appearance, an unrefined nose tip, nasal obstruction, or wide nostrils.
Many patients also consult with Dr. Daneshmand about revision rhinoplasty surgery to correct the issues that resulted from a previous rhinoplasty surgery performed by a less experienced plastic surgeon.

An Orange County rhinoplasty procedure is usually performed on an outpatient basis and takes a couple hours to perform. Rhinoplasty incisions can be inconspicuously placed within the nostrils.

You and your surgeon should openly discuss the look you want and the options you have for Orange County nose surgery.
What Type of Anesthesia is Used for Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty may be performed under general anesthesia, or in some cases, under local anesthesia and intravenous sedation.
Each anesthesia option does have its advantages and disadvantages. This includes cost variates, awareness, side effects and safety.
For those undergoing very minor rhinoplasty surgery, you may choose local anesthesia. During your surgery, you’ll be awake but very relaxed and insensitive to pain.
More extensive correction may be performed under general anesthesia, which allows the patient to sleep through the entire operation.
Dr. Daneshmand will discuss which option is recommended for you, and why this is the option of choice.
How Long Does Rhinoplasty Recovery Take?
Rhinoplasty is performed as an outpatient procedure. You’ll need to have someone drive you home and stay overnight to look after you.
Dr. Daneshmand will provide a nose splint to help your nose maintain its shape. In some cases, soft internal splints may be used to help further stabilize your septum.
Most patients experience puffiness and achiness in their face for the first day or two after rhinoplasty surgery, but this can be easily relieved with pain medication. The rest of the recovery period will require that you, for about the first week, rest with your head elevated.
Bruising and swelling can persist for the next few days and largely depends on the type of surgery that was performed. Most of the initial bruising should dissipate about a week or two after surgery. Most patients can return to work about a week or so after surgery, but it’s usually over the course of one year that results continue to take final shape.
