Whether it’s because of time off from school (for students, teachers, moms, and so on) or just a time when patients are ready to address an issue that they have always considered, in summer we see a lot of interest in cosmetic rhinoplasty. At our Long Island practice, the surgery has come a long way from what it used to be. The surgery is about an hour, with only a small splint across the bridge of the nose for a few days afterward and some bruising under the eyes. Patients can return to normal activity within a week to 10 days.
We use a very cool imaging system as a discussion tool for our rhinoplasty patients so that they have an idea of the “after” look. If you’re considering a cosmetic rhinoplasty, contact us for a consultation soon!
