Dr. Vinas Offers Tips for Rhinoplasty Patients

The most important preparation for a patient undergoing plastic surgery is education. Any procedure, from eye lifts to full body lifts, includes a wealth of pre- and post-operative necessities and processes, results and effects to be aware of. While Dr. Viñas always discusses the requirements, processes, things to expect and results of procedures his patients are interested in, he also believes patients should do their own pre-consultation research. When it comes to rhinoplasty, there are certain things patients should know.

First off, the goal of rhinoplsaty (for the most part) is to provide aesthetic improvements for patients. This often means adjusting the length and width of the nose, so that it better suits the patient’s preferences. Dr. Viñas schedules a consultation with each patient to go over the patient’s wishes as well as his professional opinions on the procedure/s. He also walks each patient through the process

Secondly, in the case that cartilage must be added to the nose, Dr. Viñas may source it from other parts of the body. This means that rhinoplasty patients have several different incisions to care for after their operation is complete.

For post-op care, patients should remember the following tips:

The average recovery time for rhinoplasty patients is 7-10 days. Bruising and swelling is common, but will subside within three weeks (typically).

Dr. Viñas always reminds patients that each person is different when it comes to healing time. While some individuals may experience minor bruising and swelling, others will experience the opposite; but that does not mean results will be inconsistent. Dr. Viñas is well versed in the aesthetics and engineering of rhinoplasty and enjoys venturing through the procedure together with patients.

Patients who are interested in rhinoplasty are encouraged to schedule a consultation with Dr. Viñas. Together you will discover the possibilities of the procedure. Call 561.665.3305 today!
