Rhinoplasty Consultation

Advanced rhinoplasty surgeon, Dr. Brittany Leader

During your initial consultation, Dr. Leader will review your medical history and perform a thorough examination of the inside and outside of your nose, as well as photographing your face at multiple views and with several expressions.


Dr. Leader is renowned for her ability to make patients comfortable with voicing concerns, asking questions, and discussing aesthetic goals during the consultation, which will help Dr. Leader determine if a rhinoplasty is the right procedure for you. Call the Illuminate Plastic Surgery at (650) 433-8621 to book a personal consultation at our convenient Palo Alto location.

Rhinoplasty Options

There are two basic types of rhinoplasty:

  • Open Rhinoplasty
  • Closed Rhinoplasty

In an open rhinoplasty, incisions are made on the inside of the nose and on the outside across the fleshy part between your nostrils.


The second type of rhinoplasty, termed closed rhinoplasty, involves incisions that are made inside the nose only. Dr. Leader will then lift the skin and reshape the bone and cartilage underneath it. One main advantage of the closed rhinoplasty technique, is that you are left with no visible scars.

An Overview Of The Rhinoplasty Procedure

Dr. Leader performs rhinoplasty procedures at our state-of-the-art AAAASF-certified operating facilities in Palo Alto. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia, with a triple-board certified anesthesiologists. Dr. Leader will use techniques best suited for you to carefully augment your nose into its new form. Once the procedure is finished, a splint or cast will be placed over the nose to maintain compression for about one week.

Recovery
& Results

Cosmetic nose surgery in Palo Alto

The first few days after rhinoplasty may be uncomfortable, but are not often described as painful. You should anticipate facial swelling and bruising, and you will feel congested. The splint that was applied after surgery will be removed at your one-week follow-up appointment.


If you have a rhinoplasty to aid with breathing problems, you should experience much better breathing as soon as the splint is removed. Your breathing will continue to improve as your healing progresses and swelling subsides. At two weeks post-procedure, you should be ready to go out in public without obvious signs of swelling. If you have any residual bruising, you may use makeup to cover it.


At three months, most of the swelling will have disappeared, and you will have a much better idea of your rhinoplasty results. You may love the sight of your new nose at this point, but be ready to love it more when 90% of the residual swelling subsides by the six-month mark. Final results are seen at one year.
