I decided to have a rhinoplasty procedure to refine the tip and dorsal hump.
The day of surgery was the most uncomfortable because there is packing in the nose which is taken out the next day. There was mild pain which could be compared to pressure vs. sharp pain. Once the packing came out I felt much better and could breathe better. I had bruising around one eye that started to dissipate after 2 days. I was comfortable to return to week on the 7th day after surgery. When the splint was removed I could see the end result, but my nose did swell within a few hours and gradually came back down in the following weeks. At 6 weeks after surgery I am able to return to exercise and cannot readily notice the swelling that is left.

I am very thankful that I had my rhinoplasty performed by Dr. S. It was an easy experience and the results were better than I expected. I knew during my consultation that his vision of what needed to be changed would give me the natural results I wanted. I credit Dr. S for the easy recovery and small amount of bruising. He is very easy to talk to explained the procedure thoroughly. I will definitely return for any other procedures I will have in the future.
