Dr. Ahn is a double board certiﬁed facial plastic surgeon who has performed more than 1,000 nasal surgeries. His goal as a surgeon is to create a nose that ﬁts your face, and complements not only your facial features but your overall aesthetic persona. Each rhinoplasty surgery is customized to the individual and is based on your personal concerns, facial features and ethnic background.
In your consultation with Dr. Ahn, he will take several photographs of you and show you the potential results of rhinoplasty using the computer imaging system. As he walks you through your potential before and after results, he will also explain the nasal structures and how your bone and cartilage can be sculpted to reshape your nose.

Immediately after surgery, a small cast will be placed on your nose to protect it and to keep the structure stable for one week. Your nose will be stuffy and there will be bruising of the lower eyelids. Cold compresses often reduce the bruising and discomfort. The cast and sutures are removed at seven days. At that point, most people have minimal yellow discoloration of the lower eyelids. While most of the swelling goes away in the first 2-3 weeks after surgery, the remaining swelling takes longer to resolve, particularly in the tip.
Some activities will be prohibited in the weeks after the procedure. Sun exposure, exertion, and risk of injury must be avoided for at least the first few weeks.
