Some people feel very uncomfortable with how their noses appear. They may feel that the nose is too wide, too pointed or too bumpy. This feeling can create a lack of confidence, particularly when out in public, and can contribute to low self-esteem. Our Orange County nose job surgery can help to address these concerns and create the nose of one’s dreams.
A rhinoplasty surgery is used to correct a variety of problems. Some people are simply uncomfortable with the shape of their noses, some have birth defects that need to be corrected, others have trouble breathing due to a malformed nose and others have had a nose injury that healed poorly. Dr. Tavoussi can discuss each of these problems with the individual and recommend the solution that will work best. He can also share before and after pictures of patients who have gone through the surgery.
The patient will need to rest for a couple of days at home before resuming activities around the home. He or she may be able to return to work within a week. However, patients will need to be careful not to put stress on the incisions by blowing the nose, making large facial expressions, pulling shirts over the head or chewing excessively. The resulting temporary pain can be controlled with a prescription from the surgeon.
