Lafayette CA RhinoplastyHave you ever thought about reshaping your nose?  Whether you are unhappy with the nose you were born with, or you suffered from an injury that distorted your nose, rhinoplasty might be a solution for you. As a Lafayette area ENT, Dr. Sassan Falsafi offers rhinoplasty to reshape your nose.
 
Whether you are unhappy with the appearance of your nose or need surgery to improve breathing, one thing is clear: nothing has a greater impact on how a person looks than the size and shape of the nose.  If you have ever wondered how nose surgery, or rhinoplasty, could improve your looks, self-confidence, or health, it is important to understand how rhinoplasty is performed and what you can expect.
 

So, How do You Know if Rhinoplasty is right for you?

 
As with all facial plastic surgery, good health and realistic expectations are vital.  Dr. Falsafi will also explain rhinoplasty for Lafayette residents so that you can better understand this procedure before taking the next step.  With rhinoplasty in Lafayette, Dr. Falsafi works to improve the nose aesthetically, making it harmonize better with other facial features. 
 
Your skin type, background and age are all important factors to be considered in discussions with Dr. Falsafi prior to surgery.  Before your nose can be altered through rhinoplasty, a young patient must reach full growth, usually around age fifteen or sixteen.  Exceptions are cases in which breathing is severely impaired.
 

Recovering in Lafayette from Rhinoplasty

 
When you first undergo rhinoplasty, your new nose will not be fully evident, as there is a recovery period.  Your recovery period will vary considerably from one person to another, as it is based on the individual.  How quickly you heal after rhinoplasty from our Lafayette ENT, Dr. Falsafi, depends on many factors, including:
 
  • The extent of your nose surgery
  • Your personal resilience factors
  • Your surgeon’s skill set
  • How closely you follow Dr. Falsafi’s pre and postoperative instructions
 
Remember to discuss your recovery with Dr. Sassan Falsafi during your initial consultation so that you can prepare for proper healing and care. At your initial consultation for rhinoplasty in Lafayette, you will be able to get a general idea of what to expect during and after your procedure.  If taking time of work or school is a consideration, or if others are dependent on you, please plan accordingly.
