If you are considering rhinoplasty we encourage you to have 2 or 3 consultations with a qualified facial plastic surgeon that regularly performs rhinoplasty. These rhinoplasty consultations will allow you to have a good basis for comparison between the different surgeons. You will also find that you will gather more (and different) information during each consultation and this will make you a better-informed consumer. . . . read more.

A tape dressing and a protective shell will cover the bridge of the nose for one week following your rhinoplasty procedure. With modern rhinoplasty techniques employed by Dr. Naficy, no packing is required inside the nose. There may be some discoloration and swelling around the eyes which will typically improve over 5-7 days. One week is usually enough time for returning to work and social activities. . . . read more.
