The human nose is a complex structure that has both cosmetic as well as respiratory functions. If your nose is out of balance or it is suffering from a functional issue, it can have an adverse effect on your self-esteem and overall quality of life. Some people report difficulty breathing, which is another great reason to choose rhinoplasty.

Rhinoplasty is designed to reshape the nose and potentially adjust nasal passages. There are different techniques your doctor, Dr. Franco, Dr. Price, or Dr. Havard might employ. The exact details of the procedure will be unique to your own personal needs.

This procedure is usually performed under an IV sedation, which usually results in less swelling and bruising. Because you will be under sedation, when you wake up, you may feel extra tired. That is why it is a great idea to have a friend or family member drive you home after the procedure.

The recovery process can take one to two weeks. However, most people resume normal actives within a week or so. Our professional team will always be happy to address any questions you may have about the recovery process as well, to help you heal and get back on your feet swiftly.

If you have any questions about the appearance or function of your nose, you should call 972-594-7414 to schedule a rhinoplasty consultation. Our team stands ready to address any questions or concerns you may have pertaining to your care.
