The more you know in preparation for your rhinoplasty, the better your results and overall experience will be. Rhinoplasty is a sophisticated plastic surgery that requires you to stay in communication with your surgeon as well do your own preparation.
In the time leading up to your rhinoplasty, you will be asked to get a lab test or medical evaluation, take certain medications or adjust current prescriptions, stop smoking and avoid taking aspirin or other anti-inflammatory drugs—aspirin and anti-inflammatory medication complicate surgery as they increase bleeding.
An experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Burton or Dr. Reps Sundin will guide you through the steps of your rhinoplasty by giving you specific instructions about what to do the night prior to the surgery, what kind of anesthesia will be used and how to best handle your post-operative recovery. All of this will be explained to you before your procedure.
Contact us to schedule your appointment for a consultation where Dr. Reps or Dr . Burton Sundin will sit down with you at our office in Richmond and walk you through the procedure.
