Rhinoplasty/Septoplasty

Conveniently located to serve Thousand Oaks, Carpinteria, and Santa Barbara

What is a RHINOPLASTY/SEPTOPLASTY?

Dr. Park is highly recommended for reshaping the nose. He is a double Board-Certified ENT (Ear, Nose, and Throat) and completed his fellowship in Facial Plastic Surgery. He completed his fellowship at the prestigious Lasky Clinic. Due to his extensive training on the face only, he would be an exceptional choice for this procedure. Rhinoplasty (nose surgery) is a procedure that reconstructs the outer shape of the nose. This procedure is considered a cosmetic surgery to reshape the nose. A Septoplasty or correction of the septum is a procedure that treats some types of breathing problems and reconstructs the inner parts of the nose. Most insurance companies may cover all or a portion of a Septoplasty procedure.

How long does a RHINOPLASTY/SEPTOPLASTY usually take to perform?

Depending on the complexity, the procedure can take anywhere from 1 hour to 4 hours if both the inside and outside of the nose are being corrected. Each case must be evaluated by the doctor during your complimentary consult. At that time, a proper estimate of time in surgery will be provided to you.

How do you perform a RHINOPLASTY/SEPTOPLASTY?

On the day of surgery, the patient will be put to sleep under anesthesia. During the procedure, cuts may be made on the inside of the nostrils or alternatively, the skin may be lifted off of the cartilage. The first method allows for less swelling and downtime but is more difficult for patients seeking changes to the tip of their nose. The latter is preferred for cases in which the patient would like to adjust the size of the tip of their nose. Upon consultation, Dr. Park will explain which method he will use depending on the changes you are seeking.

Who is a good candidate for a RHINOPLASTY/SEPTOPLASTY?

Patients with breathing issues may benefit from a Septoplasty procedure. The doctor will determine if Septoplasty would be an appropriate treatment for your concerns. Most patients seek changes to the nose in their 20s and 30s. The face tends to change naturally during this time, thus changing the structure of the nose can easily be altered. Many of our patients have wanted a specific change to their nose for an extensive amount of time. We want you to have the best possible results! After your consultation, we will email your imaging so that you have adequate time to review the changes and confirm that it’s exactly what you want!

How long does it take for a patient to recover from a RHINOPLASTY/SEPTOPLASTY?

The patient will need to come in for 24 hours follow-up post-surgery. Then, the doctor will see the patient in one week to remove the cast and straws from the nose. Dr. Park will continue to see the patient at one month, six months, and twelve months post-surgery. Bruising may occur during the first week following the procedure. The patient can resume most activities after one week, but will still have some swelling for a few months.
