Rhinoplasty

Nose Reshaping Surgery in Las Vegas

An ideal nose is natural looking, proportioned, and balanced with your face. To help achieve this goal, together, we will evaluate your nose in relation to your individual facial features and desires and see what will achieve the best result and balance.

Many times, small refinements to the nose can return balance and harmony to the face resulting in a profoundly positive effect on self-confidence and appearance. Dr. Pancholi will sit with you and discuss the various parts of your nose and how it relates to your face overall. In addition, he will show you with computer imaging what you could realistically expect as a result.

The rhinoplasty procedure

Typically the incisions used for rhinoplasty are well hidden with the only outside incision being on the undersurface of the nose between the nostrils (columella). These incisions provide an entry point, for Dr. Pancholi to raise the tissues covering the nose and allow him access to refine the delicate underlying structures.

Operation time for rhinoplasty is around two hours and is performed in a fully accredited surgery center. Dr. Pancholi only works with board certified MD anesthesiologists for all cosmetic surgeries.

After your surgery, he will place a splint on your nose that will remain for one week. Internal stitches are self dissolving and any external stitches are removed in one week.

What can I expect to look like during recovery?

Most patients will experience some swelling and bruising around the eyes. Most bruising will fade in the first week but can persist for several weeks. Most people who don’t know won’t notice much swelling after about 7-10 days. Those that do know you well may be able to pick up on it for about 2-3 weeks.

When will I be able to return to work?

Depending on your activity level at work, most people with desk jobs can return to work in about a week. If your job is more physically demanding, you will probably need to wait 2-3 weeks before resuming your normal tasks. Dr. Pancholi will see you frequently for post-op follow up visits and will let you know when it’s okay for you to return to more strenuous exercise.
