4 Benefits of Rhinoplasty Surgery

1. It can be tailored to deliver the results you want.

A rhinoplasty procedure is tailored to the patient’s specific needs because no two noses or faces are alike. 

For example, one patient may want to correct the appearance of a large bump on the bridge of her nose, while another may feel self-conscious about the overall size of his nose and want it made smaller.

2. Rhinoplasty can be performed without leaving behind a scar.

Thanks to decades of surgical experience and training in performing all types of rhinoplasties, Dr. Vitolo is able to perform the surgery completely within the nostrils, without leaving a scar on the front of the nose. 

Performing the surgery inside the nostrils can be more challenging, which is why only experienced plastic surgeons like Dr. Vitolo use this surgical technique. After all, patients want optimal results – and those results don’t include visible surgical scarring!

3. Downtime is surprisingly quick.

If you have visions of spending weeks in bed recovering from a nose job, you may be pleasantly surprised to learn you can go about your normal routine in a matter of days.

The post-surgical cast will stay on for about five days and will be removed by Dr. Vitolo at your first visit after your procedure. During your recovery, you can go about your normal (non-exercise) activities. In fact, some people will go to work after the second day, but that is a personal choice. Bruising and swelling will be visible for about two weeks.

4. You can see results quickly.

Right after the cast is removed, you will see a change in the shape of the nose, but this will only be about 70 or 80 percent of the final result. Those results will be visible about six months into your recovery, but don’t worry – you’ll still be impressed with your initial results after the cast is removed!

“It has been one year since I made the decision to have liposuction. From beginning to end Dr. Vitolo and his staff were accommodating and professional. Everyone made me feel very comfortable and took the time to answer all of my questions. I was thinking about the procedure for awhile but after talking with Dr. Vitolo, the decision was easy. I’m an active health conscious person, but was unable to get the results I wanted with just diet and exercise. Dr. Vitolo shaped my torso and I’m very happy with results. Recovery was as expected! I think it’s important for people to know that for the best results, you really need to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle.” *
