Dr. Toft will perform isolated tip rhinoplasty, dorsum rhinoplasty or full rhinoplasty, depending on the patient's needs.
Dr. Toft uses minimally invasive techniques so that the recovery process for his rhinoplasty patients will be as comfortable as possible. He typically uses no nasal packing, and patients rarely experience bruising around the eyes.
Pain medication may be needed for the first 2 to 3 days, but people typically report feeling good within 4 to 5 days of surgery. A support splint is taken off after a week, and many patients are 80% recovered after 2 weeks. Within a month of surgery, patients should be at 90% in the recovery process with no major restrictions.
Because it is normal for minor swelling to linger, Dr. Toft tells patients that their new look will evolve over time, with final results expected in 6 months to 1 year.
