Rhinoplasty is a complex art. It requires skilled surgical hands and an eye for aesthetics to ensure whatever bothers a patient about their nose is improved, while keeping the results natural-looking and balanced in the face. Form and function are closely interrelated in nose jobs.

If you wish to improve your appearance with rhinoplasty, Los Angeles surgeons at Sunset Cosmetic Surgery can help. Our Los Angeles / Beverly Hills rhinoplasty procedure is accomplished by the talented, board-certified plastic surgeons, and Los Angeles nose surgery professionals Dr. Svehlak and Dr. Yamini. Through nose surgery, Los Angeles-area patients gain solutions to aesthetic issues. These typically include a bump on the bridge of the nose, wide nostrils, bulbous or dropped tip, or issues relating to the columella. Frequently, patients have problems with restrictive nasal breathing and desire improvements there. Here, deviated septums, collapsed valves, and enlarged turbinates are addressed. These problems can frequently be covered by a patient’s health insurance. Our Los Angeles nose surgery professionals will work with you to make necessary improvements. When you visit our practice for rhinoplasty, Los Angeles surgeons Dr. Svehlak or Dr. Yamini will make recommendations for enhancing your nose and face. In some cases, our nose surgery Los Angeles patients choose other facial enhancements, such as chin implants, to accompany their rhinoplasty procedure, further improving the look and contour of their face.

Typical Recovery Time

After undergoing rhinoplasty, Los Angeles-area patients find recovery time varies greatly. Much is dependent on the region of the nose affected by the procedure. For instance, recovering from swelling, bruising and discomfort after work on the tip of the nose will require less time than nostril or bridge work. Most patients use pain medication anywhere from 2-10 days after surgery, and experience some swelling and bruising for up to six weeks. Numbness can also occur for a week or so after surgery, usually at the tip of nose. The use of sunblock is also important after your Los Angeles rhinoplasty procedure. Most patients return to work one to three weeks after surgery, and can slowly resume exercise (including swimming) four to six weeks after the procedure. While these are very large ranges, your surgeon for rhinoplasty in Beverly Hills / Los Angeles will provide instructions for your individual recovery. Final results are seen anywhere from 3-12 months following surgery.
