What is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is a procedure by Dr. Eric Li and CA Aesthetics aimed at altering the nose’s shape, size, or proportions to improve its appearance or function. It can address various concerns, including a hump, a crooked nasal bridge, asymmetry, wide nostrils, or a large nasal tip. Rhinoplasty can also be performed for different cases, discover more on this below.

  • Functional Rhinoplasty: This approach involves surgical techniques aimed at improving nasal function, such as correcting a deviated septum or addressing breathing difficulties. 
  • Revision Rhinoplasty: This technique is a secondary nose surgery performed to correct or revise the results of a previous rhinoplasty procedure. It addresses issues like asymmetry, breathing problems, or aesthetic dissatisfaction that may have arisen following the initial surgery.
  • Non-surgical Rhinoplasty: Also known as liquid rhinoplasty, this procedure involves the use of injectable fillers to reshape and contour the nose without surgery. This minimally invasive procedure can address minor irregularities, such as asymmetry, with minimal downtime and without the need for incisions.

Nose Surgery or Rhinoplasty First Step

What’s the first step?

The first step in undergoing rhinoplasty in San Jose and the Bay Area is to schedule a consultation with Dr Li.. During this initial consultation, he will carefully evaluate the nasal anatomy, discuss the goals and concerns, and develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to achieve the desired outcome for the most efficient rhinoplasty technique. 

What to expect on the day of Rhinoplasty surgery

On the day of your rhinoplasty surgery, patients can expect to arrive at our practice and be welcomed with calm clarity. You will undergo pre-operative preparations, which may include anesthesia administration and marking of the surgical sites on the nose. 

The surgery itself typically lasts several hours, during which the surgeon reshapes the nasal structure according to the pre-determined surgical plan with Functional, Revisional, or Non-Surgical. After the procedure, patients will be monitored in a recovery area before being discharged to go home accompanied by a family member or friend.

Rhinoplasty recovery

During rhinoplasty recovery, patients can expect some swelling and discomfort around the nose and even the eyes. 

Pain medication and cold compresses can help manage any discomforts post-procedure. Most patients can return to work or school within 1 to 2 weeks, but complete healing and final results may take several months as swelling gradually subsides.
