How Long Does It Take To Recover From Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty with Dr. Vitolo will leave you with the nose shape and function you want to achieve. While some people have trouble breathing through their noses because of a deviated septum, many people wish to have their noses corrected to make them more symmetrical, attractive, or more balanced with their other features. 

*Individual results may vary

What is a Scar Less Rhinoplasty Like?

Dr. Vitolo uses his Scar Less technique to perform rhinoplasty with no scarring and minimal downtime compared to some other procedures. Instead of an incision on the outside of the nose, Dr. Vitolo does all his work through incisions inside the nostrils, leaving no external scars.

In addition to the lack of scarring, this method also means that you can recover more quickly and with reliably excellent results. Recovery time decreases with less invasive procedures, so you will spend less time away from work and your busy life. Dr. Vitolo’s rhinoplasties typically take one and a half to two hours to complete. 

How Long Will Rhinoplasty Recovery Take?

Immediately after surgery, you will have a supportive cast placed on your nose to help protect and support it during the first few days of the recovery process. You will get your first good look at your results about five days later during your follow-up visit when Dr. Vitolo will remove the cast. While you can see results as soon as the cast comes off, full results may take several months to develop.

Recovery from a rhinoplasty with Dr. Vitolo depends on his recommendations and how you feel. You will wear the cast for five days, but you may go back to work before this if you feel up to it. Dr. Vitolo will work with you to create a plan for when you will resume your regular activities. You should be able to go about most of your normal routine with minimal disruption during your recovery.

Benefits of a Scar Less Rhinoplasty

Besides the lack of scarring, rhinoplasty with Dr. Vitolo offers many benefits. First, you will heal quickly and be able to resume most activities within just a few days. Second, you will see a more contoured and attractive nose that matches your facial features and flatters you from every angle. Third, you may even breathe better through your nose if you had a deviated septum before surgery. 

Am I a Candidate for a Rhinoplasty?

If you feel dissatisfied with the shape or appearance of your nose, you may be a good candidate for this procedure. Dr. Vitolo prides himself on sculpting an attractive and well-shaped nose with every rhinoplasty. Discuss any health issues you may have during your consultation.
