Who are the Best Candidates for Rhinoplasty?

If you are unhappy with the appearance of your nose, then you may be a candidate for Rhinoplasty in Tampa. You must be in good overall health and have a clear understanding of the procedure, as well as maintain realistic expectations for the results. Dr. Bhat will guide you through the process and determine if Rhinoplasty is the right choice for you.

What’s the First Step?

The first step in your journey towards achieving your ideal nose through Rhinoplasty is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Bhat at Ravive Plastic Surgery in Tampa, FL. During this important consultation, you will have the opportunity to openly discuss your goals, concerns, and expectations with Dr. Bhat. She will carefully evaluate your nose, taking into account your unique facial anatomy.

During the consultation, Dr. Bhat will discuss various techniques for Rhinoplasty and help determine the best approach to achieve the desired cosmetic and functional outcomes for your nose. She will also address any questions or concerns you may have. Once you and Dr. Bhat have discussed and finalized the treatment plan, you will meet with our patient care coordinator to schedule a surgery date that works efficiently with your schedule.

What to Expect on the Day of Rhinoplasty

On the day of your Rhinoplasty procedure with Dr. Bhat, you can expect a carefully planned and personalized experience that prioritizes your comfort. Anesthesia will be administered to ensure your comfort during the surgery. Dr. Bhat will then perform the Rhinoplasty procedure, using the appropriate techniques based on your unique nasal shape and desired outcomes. This may involve making incisions on the columella or inside the nostrils to access the nasal structures and reshape the bone, cartilage, and tissue of your nose. Nasal packing and splints may be used to provide support and maintain the new shape of your nose.

If a closed procedure technique is utilized, the incisions will be hidden inside your nose, whereas an open procedure will require an incision to be made across the narrow strip of tissue that separates your nostrils, which is called the columella. The surgery can take anywhere between one and three hours, depending on the extent of correction required.

Rhinoplasty Recovery

Following your Rhinoplasty procedure with Dr. Bhat, you can expect some initial swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort. You may have bandages or a splint to support your nose during the healing process. It is important to rest, keep your head elevated, and avoid strenuous activities for the first week. Full recovery and final results can take several months to a year. Dr. Bhat and her team will provide you with specific post-operative instructions and support throughout your recovery journey.
