Rhinoplasty Q & A
What is a rhinoplasty procedure?
Rhinoplasty is a common plastic surgery procedure, yet it requires significant training and broad experience in the aesthetic appearance of the nose and the internal structures of the nasal passages. For patients seeking rhinoplasty, this involves reconstructing or correcting the form of the nose using a closed, or endonasal, procedure exclusive to Dr. Pastorek. The closed technique uses no external incisions. While most patients seek external appearance nasal change alone, many also suffer from internal breathing problems caused by a deviated nasal septum, turbinate hypertrophy, or nasal valve collapse. These functional problems can cause sinusitis and contribute to sleep apnea. The functional problems will also be addressed at the time of rhinoplasty.
What should I expect when getting rhinoplasty done by Dr. Pastorek?
Thanks to the use of the Closed Rhinoplasty procedure involving internal incisions, Dr. Pastorek is able to complete this surgery in a shorter time period than the open technique. Patients are ready to leave the post-operative recovery room about an hour following surgery. Cold compresses over the eyes are used to relieve post-surgical swelling. Six days after surgery, the external silicone splint is removed in-office. Within a week you will begin seeing the positive results of the rhinoplasty procedure performed by Dr. Pastorek.
