The Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon customizes all Rhinoplasty procedures and the exact method he would use for you will be discussed during your complimentary consultation with the Orange County Rhinoplasty Plastic Surgeon.  During your consultation at his office in Los Angeles area or Orange County, California, Dr. Kim, M.D. will evaluate your nose and facial features and together with you will decide what nose reshaping changes to produce.

Ultimately, rhinoplasty can improve the aesthetic look and proportional shape of your nose, imrpoving your level of confidence and the way you are perceived by others.

Choosing to have nose surgery performend on your face is a personal decision and each patient individually will have to decide if the improved aesthetic appeal will produce the results that they are looking for. 

After your procedure is completed, a splint, internal tubes or packing will likely be placed inside your nose and a splint or bandages placed on the outside to support and protect the new structures during initial healing.  The sutures are removed in 5-7 days and the splint in 1-2 weeks.

Swelling typically subsides within a week or two, althought it can possibly take up to one year for the nasal contour to completely set.   During the healing process, it is possible that you will notice  changes in how your nose appears as it progresses towards a more permanent setting.

Most patients can return to non-strenuous work after 7-10 days. However, for the first several weeks after surgery, you should avoid bending over, lifting heavy objects, or engaging in any strenuous exercise. You will also have to sleep with your head elevated for one or two weeks, and should avoid exposing your nose to direct sunlight for the first few months, due to increased sensitivity. If you need to wear glasses, you may need special support modifications
