    What does rhinoplasty entail?

    Both Dr. Gadaleta and Dr. Ortlip are extensively knowledgeable about all aspects of rhinoplasty, ensuring meticulous attention to detail for an optimized surgical experience. The process begins with understanding your desired outcome, including any reference photos you provide. A surgical plan is then developed through mock-up photos and discussions before scheduling your surgery date.

    Rhinoplasty surgeries are typically performed under general anesthesia, with an incision hidden beneath the columella for full access to nasal structures. For minor changes, incisions may be placed within the nose (closed rhinoplasty). Surgery duration varies but generally takes several hours. Upon waking, your nose will be splinted and covered with a protective dressing.

    What is the recovery time for rhinoplasty?

    Nose recovery varies among patients but typically takes 12 to 18 months for full swelling resolution and tissue settling. However, your nose should look normal to others within three to four weeks. Pain is managed initially with prescription medication, transitioning to over-the-counter options. Detailed recovery timelines for swelling, pain, appearance, and function will be discussed during your consultation
