What is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic treatment performed to improve the appearance of your nose. In addition, it can sometimes even help improve your breathing function. Oklahoma City, OK plastic surgeon Dr. Kamal Sawan is a seasoned cosmetic face and nose surgeon who offers rhinoplasty, producing beautiful and natural-looking results.

This surgery at Sawan Surgical Aesthetics can be recommended to make a nose appear smaller in size or enhance a nose that is misshapen, protrudes out, is too large or wide, or has a bump on top.

Can I Get Rhinoplasty?
If you're displeased with the appearance of your nose and have areas you'd like to improve, enhance, or correct, rhinoplasty may be the right answer. It's very important that you have realistic expectations, as your appearance will be altered. You should be past the years of facial growth; this will be further assessed during your consultation, even more so if you are under 21. For questions about candidacy, schedule a consultation with Dr. Sawan at Sawan Surgical Aesthetics today.
How is Rhinoplasty Performed?
Your nose surgery will be performed while you are under sedation, such as general anesthesia, and is considered an outpatient procedure. There are various surgical methods, depending on your particular cosmetic goals. Dr. Sawan performs rhinoplasty using either a closed approach or an open method with an objective to decrease or eliminate excess bone, cartilage, and tissue, or to build and increase cartilage if necessary for reconstruction. The nasal features will be repositioned and your skin re-draped over the newly enhanced framework. Stitches are implemented either on the inside portion of the nose or along the natural external fold.
What Can Be Expected After Rhinoplasty?
After your rhinoplasty procedure, you will be left to rest comfortably during recovery. Once we've discussed any at-home instructions, we'll send you home. Your nose will be very swollen and bruised over the next few days and may experience some bruising and discoloration under your eyes. A cold compress and prescription medication can help you to feel better throughout those first few days. It's also important to avoid strenuous activity while you're healing. We'll have you back in for a follow-up appointment with Dr. Sawan to ensure everything is on track. Recovery takes about 2 – 4 weeks.
