Home / Rhinoplasty
In Rhinoplasty, nose is reshaped so that it looks natural and blends harmoniously with rest of face.
Few blood tests need to be done to ascertain your general fitness for surgery. Rhinoplasty is a day care procedure and you can go back home in evening. It is done under Local/General Anesthesia. The surgery last 1-2hrs on an average.
In case of saddle nose or other deformities, in which nose needs to be built up in certain areas, a nasal septal cartilage or bone or cartilage from another site or commonly an artificial implant ( Silicone/Porex) may be used.
After swelling subsides one can rejoin work after 48 hours. though a little caution is warranted to avoid any trauma to nose after surgery.
