Rhinoplasty in Colombia is typically performed as an outpatient surgery with a combination of general and local anesthesia.The procedure takes about 1 to 2 hours, although more complicated procedures can take longer to complete. Most incisions are concealed inside the nose or along its natural creases, eventually leaving no noticeable evidence of the surgery.  Through these incisions, the soft tissues that cover the nose are gently raised, allowing access to reshape the structure of the nose.  Artistic vision and skilled hands are necessary to sculpt beautifully.  Skilled plastic surgeons combine the art and science of rhinoplasty to obtain consistently beautiful results.  Surgical planning and elegant techniques are able to achieve predictable outcomes, and the improvements are often quite dramatic.  Once the underlying structure of the nose is sculpted to the desired shape, nasal skin and tissue is redraped and incisions are closed.  If the septum is deviated, it is now straightened and the projections inside the nose are reduced to improve breathing.


This procedure can be completed in just a few hours at an outpatient surgery suite in Colombia.  Special dressings are placed after surgery to minimize swelling and bruising during the recovery period.  The healing period following today’s rhinoplasty technique is significantly shorter than years past.  You will go home after the procedure and rest for at least 24 hours, after which you may gradually increase your activity as tolerated.

Rhinoplasty patients are advised to elevate their head, both while sleeping and awake, to help reduce swelling. Most patients would not describe their recovery as painful, and any discomfort can be minimized with prescription medication. Patients need to avoid blowing their nose or doing anything else that would increase the risk of bleeding or abnormal healing.  Most people feel well enough to perform normal activities within 3 days, but a splint or cast is worn over the nose for 5-7 days.  Bruises around your eyes that appear immediately after surgery should fade in one week. 

After recovery, rhinoplasty patients are usually thrilled with the more balanced and attractive look of their face. It's amazing to see how greatly women and men alike can enhance their appearance and their self-esteem by improving just this one facial feature.  Although you will be able to get a sense of your results about 2 weeks after surgery, subtle changes will continue to appear over 6 to 12 months.
