When patients come to Ottawa plastic surgeon Peter Brownrigg with complaints about the appearance of their nose, rhinoplasty is the solution. Dr. Brownrigg can completely reshape a patient’s nose through the rhinoplasty procedure. Depending on a patient’s desires, Dr. Brownrigg can make alterations to the nostrils, reshape the bone or cartilage, and even insert small implants to give a patient a nose that fits proportionately with their other facial features. For our patients in Ottawa, rhinoplasty surgery can significantly enhance a patient’s appearance without dramatically altering their appearance.

Dr. Brownrigg will give patients instructions to follow during their recovery phase. These instructions should be carefully followed to make your recovery as comfortable as possible and ensure that your nose heals fully. Some tips that can ensure a smooth recovery include the following:
If you follow these tips, you should experience only a moderate amount of discomfort that can be easily managed through your prescribed pain medication. Following these steps will also help you avoid injury or stress to your nose during this vital recovery period.
