Preparing for Your Procedure
Using his extensive experience as a nose surgeon, Dr. Spence conducts a detailed evaluation of your face. He examines your skin, harmony of your features, and bone structure to develop an aesthetically pleasing procedure plan. By taking those steps, Dr. Spence can sculpt a beautifully shaped nose in harmony with your features.
In addition, Dr. Spence will tailor a unique skin care regimen for you to follow prior to your procedure. He will also provide you with detailed instructions for your recovery, so that you can prepare ahead of time.
To keep you comfortable throughout the procedure, Dr. Spence performs rhinoplasty under either general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. Depending on your individual treatment plan, he performs either an "open" rhinoplasty, which involves an incision made along the columella (the area between the nostrils), or a "closed" rhinoplasty, which places all incisions inside the nostrils.
After he makes the incision, he reshapes or removes bone, cartilage, and tissue meticulously. If needed, he performs any additional surgery to correct breathing problems, such as in the case of a deviated nasal septum. Dr. Spence then closes the incisions carefully, to minimize any scarring.
Recovery & Results
Most patients wear a splint or bandage on their noses to protect the area. Any bruising or swelling usually is minimal and subsides within a few days. Most of Dr. Spence's patients return to work in about 1 week and can even return to their regular exercise routines in about 3 weeks.
The complete benefits of rhinoplasty surgery may take several months to be apparent. After their recovery, Dr. Spence's patients often say that they are delighted with their enhanced noses. In addition to a more flattering nose shape and size, the features of their faces are better proportioned and attractive.
