What is a Rhinoplasty?

With this procedure, Dr. Korman is able to use state-of-the-art computer programming to help each patient visualize how his or her nose can be realistically altered. This helps both the patient and surgeon visualize a common goal. Dr. Korman begins the actual surgery by making a small incision inside the nostril and then separating the bone and tissue. At this point there are numerous options in which the cartilage can be reshaped or trimmed, bone can be shaved, and many more. This depends on what Dr. Korman and you have decided as your cosmetic goal. For more information on this procedure, schedule a consultation at our Mountain View facility today.

What to Expect Following a Rhinoplasty?

Following the surgery, Dr. Korman usually recommends the patient wear a splint for approximately one week while the nose heals. There may be slight swelling or bruising around the eyes, but a cold compress can reduce this. After about a week, normal activity can resume for rhinoplasty patients.
