Surgical technique during ethnic rhinoplasty
Dr. Starkman and his experienced surgical assistants will help to prepare you for your outpatient surgery. Generally, ethnic rhinoplasty takes 2 – 3 hours, though the time spent in the operating room varies from patient to patient.
Ethnic rhinoplasty regularly involves more than one technique to achieve your desired results, and Dr. Starkman will perform your surgery according to the treatment plan created with you in your consultation.
Once the surgery is complete and the incisions are sutured, your nose will be dressed in a splint and bandages. This is done to control post-op bleeding and swelling, which is especially important because the area is close to the eyes. You can then rest and recuperate in our recovery room until you are ready to go home.
