Small, hidden incisions help keep the patient from experiencing too much bruising and swelling after surgery.
Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) September 24, 2013
A new article published on RhinoplastyNet.com titled “The Most Common Nose Job Questions” addresses some of the most common concerns patients have when deciding whether or not to undergo a rhinoplasty. Babak Azizzadeh, MD, FACS, top rhinoplasty surgeon in Beverly Hills, answers these questions to help patients feel more comfortable about upcoming procedures.
“I know that patients have a lot of questions, and want answers, before deciding to undergo surgery. While nothing will replace the in-person consultation, I wanted to provide a resource for people to get some of the basic information about the nose job procedure,” said Dr. Azizzadeh.
His article addresses questions like “Am I a Good Candidate?” and “What is the Recovery Like?” Dr. Azizzadeh explains that patients who are in good overall health, but want to improve the nose’s appearance, are usually good candidates for a nose job. Additionally, he describes the typical recovery period following the procedure.
“Patients should rest for the first day after surgery, and not begin strenuous activity for two to three weeks. Full recovery after rhinoplasty is actually a slow process. Final results aren’t seen for up to a year or two after surgery. That shouldn’t be a deterrent, though, because it is only subtle swelling that remains after the first few months,” explained Dr. Babak Azizzadeh.
Dr. Azizzadeh, the director of the Institute for Rhinoplasty & Nasal Reconstruction in Beverly Hills, is known for his natural-looking rhinoplasty results and minimally invasive surgical techniques, which actually help reduce the recovery time and minimize swelling.
“Small, hidden incisions help keep the patient from experiencing too much bruising and swelling after surgery. I always use the smallest incision possible to get the desired result. Depending on the individual, I may even be able to perform a closed rhinoplasty, where any necessary incision is made inside the nose,” said Dr. Azizzadeh.
Dr. Azizzadeh is a Harvard-trained sub-specialist in nasal and facial plastic surgery and has been recognized as a Top Doctor by the US News & World Report for rhinoplasty. He is one of the leading experts in the fields of primary, revision and ethnic rhinoplasty, and is the author of five bestselling books, including the definitive rhinoplasty textbook entitled “Master Techniques in Rhinoplasty.” Dr. Azizzadeh is double board certified in both facial plastic surgery and otolaryngology, which gives him a distinctive insight into both the aesthetics and function of the nose.
