Full healing after a rhinoplasty takes approximately a year depending upon the techniques performed the skin type – whether there was cartilage grafting or bone work. The the tip of the nose stays swollen for quite a period of time – usually about 70 to 80 percent of the swelling is gone in the first month or two about 90 percent is gone at three months but full healing does take a year when you’re when you’re talking about narrowing and making cuts in the nasal bones and then narrowing the nasal tip cartilages as well.

Narrowing a Wide Nose | Rhinoplasty

Posted by admin on  March 5, 2020

This is a patient that we narrowed a wide nose – now she also had a dorsal hump present so I shaved down the dorsal hump. It’s mandatory that you have to narrow the nasal bones to prevent this flattop open-roof nasal deformity so we narrow the bridge line we narrow the nasal bones and the corresponding upper lateral cartilages in the mid portion of the nose and then the tip cartilages themselves can be refined a little bit by just a very conservative removal of cartilage in that tip that can just create a little bit of feminization or a little bit of refinement so it’s not so bulky so wide and so bulbous and that nose then is better fit with their facial features and it just blends in rather than being the most prominent thing on their face.

How Rhinoplasty Changes the Face

Posted by admin on  March 5, 2020

If the nose is too wide it tends to be the main focus when people look at your facial features so if we can just refine the nose it’s still the patient’s nose it’s still their own skin bone and cartilage however if we can narrow and refine the nose then the nose just blends in to the facial features and is not the most prominent feature on a patient’s face.

Well patients notice the more narrowness the moment I’d pull but take the cast off so the moment I take the cast off patients can see their new bridge line which is narrower because it’s been narrowed and then the cast has been applied across the bridge of the nose for a week once I take the cast off patients can see their new bridge line immediately which is more narrow but the tip itself is very swollen because the tip is not does not have the cast on it so the tip swollen but the bridge they see that immediately and especially patients who have had a crooked nose or crooked nasal bones they see the first thing they see is their nose is straight and that’s a very common theme we we hear on a daily basis when we take the casts off the bridge line of the nose.
