3 Steps for Successful Scar Less Rhinoplasty Recovery

1. Take the appropriate time off.

Following your Scar Less Rhinoplasty procedure at Dr. Vitolo’s state of the art, AAAASF Certified ambulatory surgical facility, he will place a small plaster cast on your nose to maintain its position. After 5 days you will come back for your first post-operative visit, at which point the cast will be removed. Some patients elect to return to work or school as early as the second recovery day but this is all a personal choice. 

If you’re not 100% sure how much time you’ll need, Dr. Vitolo can give you a recommendation based on your work and home life. 

2. Follow your plastic surgeon’s recovery plan.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Vitolo will provide you with a customized treatment plan that will help support your best no scar rhinoplasty recovery possible. Be sure to closely follow that plan, as it’s designed with your comfort and health in mind! Dr. Vitolo’s skill set, which is based on decades of experience, allows him to visualize what needs to be corrected and give you an accurate recovery timeline.

3. Anticipate your results improving over time

Following your Scar Less Rhinoplasty procedure, which typically takes 1-2 hours to complete, you will see an immediate change in the shape of the nose. However residual swelling is still common over the course of several months. Gradual improvements to your results can be seen for 6 months or longer. Dr. Vitolo’s expertise in creating noses that look natural and proportional to your facial features leads his patients to be very happy with their Scar Less Rhinoplasty results!

“I have been a patient of Dr. Vitolo for 30 years and have had full body liposuction, a rhinoplasty and breast augmentation. Over these 30 years I also get fillers. Collagen, restylane and botox. All my experiences in the office have been pleasant. Dr. VItolo is an awesome surgeon and he has hands of gold. I am actually 50 and nobody believes me. They think I’m 35-40 and I look natural His staff is polite and courteous as well. I would definitely recommend him. He is the best!!”  *
