WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO KNOW?
At Clinic Lémanic, patients are required to play a proactive role in their treatment. An initial pre-operative consultation will be set up with the surgeon. This is your opportunity to get clear and detailed answers to any questions you may have about the rhinoplasty. A surgeon who listens carefully to your expectations and gives you clear feedback is key to a successful Rhinoplasty that meets your needs.
2 Before the treatment
After some time to reflect on all the details shared with you, you will need to decide if you wish to proceed with the surgery. Once you have reached a decision, your rhinoplasty will be planned and scheduled.
On the day of your procedure, you should arrive at the clinic at least 2 hours before the scheduled appointment to allow enough time for the admission process. A final pre-operative consultation will be held with the surgeon so that expectations can be confirmed one last time.
The surgeon will then perform your rhinoplasty according to the personalised treatment plan outlined during your consultation, making small surgical incisions within the nostrils to effect the necessary corrections and achieve a well-proportioned nose. Since the techniques used by the surgeon are, for the most part, confined to the inside of the nose, the procedure generally leaves no visible scars.
Your rhinoplasty can be performed on an outpatient basis. However, to help ensure that you are comfortable and well-rested before your check-up the next day, we recommend that the night following your surgery be spent within the tranquillity of the clinic.
4 Post treatment
Post-operative follow-ups are planned for the day after your procedure, and at 5 days and 2 weeks post-surgery so that the surgeon can change your dressings and administer the necessary care. Where applicable, splints and stitches will also be removed during these follow-ups.
We advise that you exercise caution and pay particular attention to your well-being in the 2 weeks following your rhinoplasty. During this time, signs of the operation will be clearly visible, as you will be required to wear nasal packing for 3 days and a cast for 8 days. You may experience some difficulty breathing through the nose for a few days. Swelling will persist for about 2 months. Everything will gradually begin to normalise. Throughout the entire process, our highly qualified staff will assist and support you with personalised medical follow-up care.
