Tampa Bay Rhinoplasty Surgery
Depending on the amount of reshaping that needs to be done, rhinoplasty can be accomplished in two to three hours. First, the skin is separated from the nose and lifted away to expose the bone and cartilage underneath. Those elements are then shaped; afterwards, the skin is replaced and sutured. A splint is applied to help the nose maintain its new shape as it heals. Because the incisions are made on the inside of the nose, the sutures are hidden from view.

Tampa Rhinoplasty Recovery
As part of the completion of the operation, the doctor will put a splint on your nose to help it maintain its new shape. Mild bruising and swelling is normal, but discomfort should be minimal. Often a simple ice compress or over-the-counter pain reliever will handle it. You should attempt to keep your head elevated (above your heart) for the first 24 hours; this may mean sleeping sitting up if at all possible.
Some patients are surprised to notice swelling and bruising around the eyes, which may get worse in the first few days after the operation. This is normal, however, and will subside within a couple of weeks. After one week, the new nose should be strong enough that the splint can be removed. You will have a nosebleed for a few days and a congested nose for a few weeks.
Avoid strenuous activity for 2-3 weeks and contact sports for at least six weeks. Most white-collar patients are able to return safely to work after a week.
If you’ve felt self-conscious about your nose, rhinoplasty can help. It’s amazing how even small alterations to your face can make a dramatic difference in your feelings of self-worth and your own beauty. Because the nose is the center of your face, it creates harmony and balance when it looks just right — and that’s what rhinoplasty is all about.
