If you are in generally good health and have a good understanding of the expected outcomes after this type of surgery, you are most likely a great candidate. Most of our Murrieta and Temecula rhinoplasty patients are seeking this treatment due to:
Rhinoplasty is a personal procedure, so we want to be sure to get to know you and your particular aesthetic goals. At a consultation, we’ll discuss this, as well as your medical history, to ensure you are an ideal candidate. Then, we will determine a treatment plan and give you full, detailed instructions on how to prepare for the procedure, including any medications that might need to be temporarily stopped.
Typically performed using general anesthesia, rhinoplasty typically takes between one to two hours, depending on the extent of the surgery. Once you’re under, the area is prepped and incisions are made. The skin, tissues, cartilage, and bone will be adjusted, and the skin will be replaced over the structures in the case of open rhinoplasty. Tiny sutures may be used in some cases.
You will likely be in the recovery area for a short period after your surgery. Swelling and tenderness are common in the first few days, and you will receive specific post-op instructions for care. Rhinoplasty results will be noticeable after the first few weeks of swelling subside, but patients should note that it can take up to a year for the nose to fully settle and for final results to appear.

We typically recommend waiting two to six weeks, but it largely depends on what type of frames you wear. This can be assessed at a consultation, so please be sure to bring your glasses.
You will need a driver after surgery, and it’s best to have someone around for about 24 hours to assist you while the anesthesia wears off.
Pressure relief is vital during the healing process, so it’s best to sleep slightly elevated and on your back for about one to two weeks after surgery.
The general consensus among plastic surgeons is that before 35 to 40, while the skin still has ample elasticity, is the ideal timeframe to undergo this procedure. However, there is no specific upper age limit.
