If you live in the Henderson area and have imperfections with your nose that make you self-conscious or have issues with breathing, you may benefit from rhinoplasty, also known as nose surgery. At the Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery Clinic in Las Vegas, Dr. Julio Garcia is a highly-trained, board-certified plastic surgeon who approaches each procedure with understanding and care, and works with you to achieve the results you desire to look and feel your best.
This surgical procedure can help with several nose-related issues while helping to improve the way you feel about yourself. As with any surgery, it’s important to understand the process before you undergo the procedure. Dr. Garcia and staff take a comprehensive approach to your care from start to finish. Once you decide nose surgery is right for you, our process involves:
- Consultation: Our staff of caring nurses will talk with you about your medical history and interests in the procedure you desire. You’ll then meet with Dr. Garcia who’ll further discuss your cosmetic goals, answer any questions you may have, and offer an honest assessment of your options.
- Preparation: Once the decision is made, Dr. Garcia will provide photos of various noses to help you decide the best look for you. He’ll also go over guidelines for preparing for your surgery, including what to eat and which medications and supplements you should take beforehand. Smokers need to stop smoking for two weeks prior to and after surgery.
- Procedure: The procedure typically takes one to three hours during which Dr. Garcia uses a series of tools to trim, fold, and shape your nose. A small cast or steri-strips are applied to the nose after the surgery is complete.
- Post-procedure: Your first follow-up visit is generally one day after the procedure. After one week the sutures and cast (if used) are removed. Heavy lifting and strenuous work are not recommended for at least two weeks post-procedure.
