An Overview of African-American Rhinoplasty
To prepare for your rhinoplasty, Dr. Lee will spend a substantial amount of time with you, evaluating your anatomy and how it relates to your nose. She will then work with you to create a surgical plan designed achieve your ideal new nose. In working with Los Angeles & Beverly Hills ethnic rhinoplasty patients, Dr. Lee is careful to ensure the cosmetic result doesn’t necessarily strip away all traces of your ethnic identity, but rather refines it to create a more harmonious and beautiful overall look.
To perform your actual surgery, Dr. Lee will begin by administering general anesthesia to ensure your comfort and safety. From there, she will make a series of precise incisions inside the nostrils or on the outside of the nose. As this is a critical aspect of your procedure, Dr. Lee will carefully explain the benefits and risks of each incision option, and help you determine which one is in your best interest during your initial consultation. After making the incisions, she will then lift the soft tissues of the nose and reshape and resize the nasal structure. In this way, Dr. Lee will address the cosmetic imperfections that concern you most and achieve the precise overall look you desire. Once your beautiful new nose has been accomplished, Dr. Lee will meticulously close the incisions to minimize any scarring and ensure a discreet surgical outcome.
Often time patients are skeptical and discouraged from the rhinoplasty procedure because of the possible pain they will endure. While pain is something that accompanies the procedure, Dr. Lee, being an elite Los Angeles African-American rhinoplasty surgeon, encourages patients to look beyond the short-term pain, as the results are more than worth it.
What to expect during recovery
Immediately after your rhinoplasty surgery, you will have a protective splint covering the nose, which will stay in place as you return home to begin the healing process. During this time, you can expect to experience some swelling, congestion and pain in the area, though it will all subside naturally within a few days. As you heal, you will be advised to avoid strenuous activity and doing anything that may irritate or place stress on the nose. In most cases you will be able to resume work and your normal daily routine within one week, though Dr. Lee will provide you with more personalized guidance during your post-operative appointments. It is imperative that you follow all directions and take precautions to avoid delaying healing. Doing this will eliminate the possibility of needed a revision rhinoplasty procedure.
