How is Rhinoplasty Performed?
Glendale-area residents considering a rhinoplasty for either cosmetic or medical purposes have a lot of questions about the procedure. This is understandable. Rhinoplasty is a commonly performed procedure with an excellent safety record, but Dr. Paul Angelchik understands that any surgery is a little intimidating. Learning a bit more about your rhinoplasty procedure will help you as you research the procedure. We believe it’s important our patients know what to expect. Rhinoplasty can be performed using either local or general anesthesia. Dr. Angelchik will decide which option is right for your specific needs. The exact steps of your rhinoplasty will be determined by your cosmetic goals. However, all nose surgeries involve small, inconspicuous incisions made on the inside of your nose. Once the incisions are made, Dr. Angelchik will re-shape the bone and cartilage in the nose. He will use his decades of experience to shape the tissue according to your goals. The end result will be a new, more attractive nasal profile and shape. Because of the anesthesia you will not feel any pain during your rhinoplasty. Major complications are rare. Dr. Angelchik will tell you what you can expect from your rhinoplasty recovery before you undergo the procedure.
