Nose surgery, or rhinoplasty , is a relatively short procedure. Depending on the type of nose surgery Dr. Kleto is performing, surgical time can take one hour or more. It is important to remember that plastic surgery is an art as well as a science. Dr. Kleto will take as much time as necessary to ensure aesthetically pleasing results.
Nose surgery is performed under general anesthesia. Your surgery should not provide any discomfort at all. Recovery from nose surgery can be mildly uncomfortable. Pain and swelling are common for up to one week following your surgery. These problems are temporary. Dr. Kleto will work with you during this time to help ensure you are as comfortable as possible.
Recovery from nose surgery can take up to two weeks. Most people are able to return to work within five to seven, but more strenuous activities will need to be avoided until you are fully recovered. Dr. Kleto will work with you during this time and let you know when it is okay to resume your regular activities.
As with any surgery, there are risks such as bleeding and infection. Most nose surgery risks are aesthetic. This is why it is important to work with an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Dean Kleto. Dr. Kleto will take every precaution necessary to help make sure your procedure is safe, effective, and provides you with the results you deserve.
Nose surgery permanently changes the shape and size of your nose. Once Dr. Kleto has changed the external structure of your nose, only trauma can change its shape again.
