The Procedure

  • Rhinoplasty is performed in either a hospital or accredited ambulatory surgery center
  • It is performed under general anesthesia and usually takes two to three hours.
  • Incisions are either inside the nose or well concealed by the nostrils.
  • Your procedure may involve shaving or straightening of the bones, removal or reshaping or the cartilage, in order to achieve the desired appearance.
  • The septal cartilage in the midline of the nose may be removed to help with breathing or correction of a curvature
  • You will likely have a splint on the outside, and occasionally internal splints are used to help. The splint is used for about a week
