If you’re unhappy or dissatisfied with the size, shape, or appearance of your nose, you might be considering rhinoplasty in The Woodlands. Dr. Chaowen Wu performs open and closed rhinoplasties according to your specific goals and concerns to ensure optimal and natural results inspired by your own body. Please schedule an appointment if you’re ready to receive the gift of Wu and revel in your truest self.
You’re a good candidate for rhinoplasty if you…
- Are in generally good physical and mental health.
- Don’t have underlying medical conditions that prevent optimal wound healing or recovery.
- Don’t smoke or are willing to stop smoking several months before and after the surgery.
- Have realistic expectations from the rhinoplasty.
- Are dissatisfied with the shape, size, or general appearance of your nose or have trouble breathing.
Dr. Chaowen Wu will carefully examine your nose and discuss your goals during an extended consultation. She’ll also review your medical history, ask about your lifestyle, and determine if you’re a suitable candidate for a rhinoplasty.
What’s the post-rhinoplasty healing process like?
Depending on the specific details of your procedure, you may need 1 to 2 weeks of professional downtime after rhinoplasty in The Woodlands. This should give you enough time to rest and heal before resuming work. You must keep your head elevated for the first 24 hours to minimize bleeding, swelling, and bruising.
The nose splint will be removed after 1 to 2 weeks, but you’ll still have some post-treatment swelling and bruising for a few weeks. It may take up to 12 months for your nose to settle completely in its new position.
