Dr. Broumand’s Approach to Rhinoplasty

What to Expect From Your Rhinoplasty

Dr. Broumand tailors each rhinoplasty procedure to the unique needs of each individual patient. While your rhinoplasty experience may vary, we will make sure that you feel informed and supported every step of the way.

Preparing for Rhinoplasty

The journey to a new nose starts with a consultation appointment with Dr. Broumand. He will listen to your concerns and goals and he will explain your options. He will also use a state-of-the-art system known as VECTRA® XT 3D imaging to help patients better understand the anatomy of the nose and visualize potential results.

The Rhinoplasty Procedure

On the day of your procedure, you should plan for a friend or family member to drive you to and from surgery. Rhinoplasty is typically an outpatient procedure with general anesthesia. We strive to make our operating room a very comfortable environment, with the highest level of attention paid to safety. At 740 Park, our board-certified anesthesiologist and our operating room team are highly experienced and dedicated to your care.

Dr. Broumand offers closed and open Rhinoplasty techniques customized to address each individual’s unique needs and goals. Closed Rhinoplasty is performed using tiny incisions made inside the nose. Open Rhinoplasty involves an incision made discreetly along the outer vertical strip of the nose which enables the skin to be separated from the nasal framework beneath. Once incisions have been made with either approach, cartilage and bone are meticulously re-contoured until the desired result is attained. Though rare, a cartilage graft may also be needed to achieve an ideal outcome. For the majority of patients, the entire Rhinoplasty procedure generally takes approximately one to two hours.

Recovery After Rhinoplasty

Following Rhinoplasty surgery, some degree of bruising is expected, but these symptoms will gradually diminish over time. A nasal splint placed after the procedure will sometimes need to be worn temporarily to help the nose maintain its new shape during the initial stages of healing.

Most individuals look and feel well enough to return to normal, non-strenuous daily routines after about one week, though Dr. Broumand recommends that any vigorous exercise or physical activity be avoided for at least two weeks. If an open Rhinoplasty was performed, any potential visible scarring should fade with time and be relatively inconspicuous when it reaches final appearance.

Rhinoplasty Results

Your rhinoplasty results may not be visible right away due to normal, temporary swelling. Once swelling subsides, you will be able to see your initial results. However, there may be some residual swelling for months after surgery and it can take up to one year for fully refined results to be visible. Dr. Broumand will schedule several follow-up appointments to monitor your healing and results.
