No More Painful Nasal Packing after Rhinoplasty - Beverly Hills, CA

The reason I didn't want to have rhinoplasty in...

The reason I didn't want to have rhinoplasty in the past was due to the dreaded nasal packing. The thought of not being able to breathe, especially during eating was not appealing as well as the dry tongue from mouth breathing all day long, for several days, no thank you. I was lucky enough to find a Beverly Hills surgeon who invented a nasal airway that completely avoids this problem. Once I found out about the "Kotler Nasal Airway" I decided to go ahead and have my nose fixed. There is some minor packing used to prevent any bleeding BUT you are able to breathe thru your nose immediately after surgery! I found this wonderful invention to be heaven sent and a more humane way of treating patients. I don't understand why every doctor doesn't use this great invention to avoid that disgusting nose packing which can be very painful when removed. Had my nose fixed on 7/1/14 and very happy with results so far, residual swelling still there but I know it takes time to resolve. Not sure why some doctors say they don't use any packing after surgery (???) according to their posts, there is always bleeding after surgery. If your doctor uses packing, I would strongly recommend that you ask for the nasal airway for your surgery to make your life easier during recovery.

Protecting your nose after rhinoplasty, special sunglasses!

Pictures below are 5 weeks postop.
I found a solution to protect my recent nose surgery, since I always wear sunglasses while driving, running errands, etc., I did not wish to tape my sunglasses to my forehead to avoid pressure on my nose bridge (as recommended by some and that looks ridiculous). So I found disposable sunglasses that stay on with light pressure on your temples. They are polarized and very light! I ordered mine through a website called http://rollens.com/product.php
They are very inexpensive. I hope this helps other patients as it helped me.
