Dr. Lee’s approach
Having spent additional training in rhinoplasty, Dr. Lee is up-to-date with the most advanced techniques, and is on the cutting-edge of new technology. Dr. Lee is currently one of a select few who are utilizing a new device. This new device will change how patients recover from surgery. It removes the need for nasal packing during recovery, which inhibits nasal breathing after surgery. As a co-developer of this new device, Dr. Lee has made it possible for patients to breathe easily through their newly shaped nose immediately following their procedure. You can be confident that your result will be refined, balanced and proportioned with the rest of your face.
After rhinoplasty, you may experience some bruising and swelling. This is normal, and will diminish over time. If the upper part of the nose is narrowed, you may see some mild bruising under the eye area, which tends to diminish after a week or so. We recommend taking surgical strength Arnika and Bromelain following your surgery to facilitate the healing process.
Most of swelling will calm down within the first few weeks following your rhinoplasty. That being said, there will still be swelling that will continue to diminish for up to a year before achieving its final size and overall look. Any sutures positioned inside the nose will dissolve, and any nasal cast or external sutures that might be used shall be removed approximately one week after your rhinoplasty surgery. Patients can usually return home after the sutures and cast have been properly removed. Dr. Lee will want to check with you throughout the healing process with several follow-up appointments.
Dr. Lee understands that each patient is different. Our office in Beverly Hills strives to provide a relaxed and inviting atmosphere so that we can understand your personal goals for your nasal surgery. During your personalized consultation and evaluation, Dr. Lee will examine the inside and outside of your nose to assess the underlying anatomy of your nose and how it affects the external appearance of your nose. Following this, our computer imaging system provides a unique experience in which patients can visually get an idea of what he/she will look like following rhinoplasty surgery. If you choose to proceed with nasal reshaping surgery with Dr. Lee, a second appointment will be made a couple weeks before surgery to review the changes discussed at the initial consultation. At any time during the process, we welcome any questions or concerns you may have regarding the procedure or the recovery so that you feel comfortable.
