Expect at least four visits to your surgeon, or more, if you’re traveling long-distance to get rhinoplasty surgery.

August 20, 2015

In our practice, we will not commit to surgery on out-of-town patients without first meeting for a consultation. Email photos are not a substitute for an examination. After your consultation, if you and your doctor wish to move forward, you can schedule your pre-op visit and surgical date, and you should plan to stay for longer than seven days near your surgeon until your dressing is removed.

We have seen post-operative bleeding anytime within three weeks following rhinoplasty, so the longer you can stay, the better. After being discharged home, you should expect to see your surgeon around 3-6 months post-op, and then 9-12 months post-op.

Small issues during your healing may be magnified by long distances, so if possible, it is always preferable keeping your rhinoplasty surgeon close to home.

Hope this is helpful. Thank you.
