Frequently Asked Questions
Fortunately, significant complications from rhinoplasty are infrequent. Every year, many people have their noses reshaped, experience no major problems and are delighted with the results. Anyone considering surgery, however, should be aware of both the benefits and the risks. Your surgeon will discuss these with you during your consultation.
Generally, bruising around the eyes and cheeks is most apparent during the first few days following surgery. Most discoloration will disappear within a week. A few days after surgery, you can begin to wear make-up. Minor residual swelling may continue for several weeks, but generally this should not be apparent to others.
Depending on the extent of your Rhinoplasty and your general physical condition, you should be able to return to work within a week to ten days after surgery. Straining, bending and lifting should be avoided during the early post-operative period. Most normal activities, including some exercise, can usually be resumed within three weeks.
The aim of Rhinoplasty is a nose that looks natural, blends harmoniously with your other facial features and enhances your self-image.
Since the healing process is gradual, you should expect to wait to see the final results. You are likely, however, to begin enjoying your new look fairly soon after surgery.
In most cases, the results of Rhinoplasty are permanent, except for possible changes associated with the normal ageing process.
Allure medspa takes special pride in offering our patients excellent levels of post-operative support. Once your nose reshaping surgery is complete, we’ll monitor your progress through a series of regular examinations with your surgeon or a member of our nursing staff.

Insurance companies will pay only for the portion of rhinoplasty that is performed to improve breathing (functional surgery). They will not cover any portion performed to improve your appearance (cosmetic surgery). The Gunter Center for Aesthetics & Cosmetic Surgery does not contract with any insurance plans, Medicare or otherwise; however, if it is determined that you have a functional problem, we will contact your insurance company and attempt to obtain approval of coverage. You must have out-of-network benefits in order to be reimbursed for the surgeon’s fee and anesthesia. The surgery center DOES contract with many plans so your hospital bill may be insurable. Understand that it is our policy to collect 100 percent of the surgery and anesthesia fee four weeks prior to your surgery.
After we have sent a letter to your insurance company telling them your problems and outlining our recommendations including the costs, it is your responsibility to follow-up on the amount of the costs they will cover. Even after that, most insurance companies will not give you a specific amount but they are more likely to give information to you than they are to us. It is YOUR responsibility to obtain written authorization from your insurance company. They will not inform us of an exact dollar amount of benefits allowed nor will they guarantee coverage.
The length of a Rhinoplasty consultation at our Alluremedspa, Goregaon office is approximately one and a half hours. The consultation begins with our photographer taking several pictures of you. These will help the doctor to explain the goals of your surgery. The nurse then briefly discusses your medical history with you to ensure it is complete. The doctor will review your history, examine you, and discuss the benefits, risks, and potential results of the procedures that interest you. Next, you and the nurse will review guidelines regarding postoperative care before you are escorted to our patient coordinator’s office. The patient coordinator will discuss available surgery dates as well as the fees associated with your procedure. At the conclusion of the visit, she will provide you with a written fee quote and you will be required to pay a consultation fee. Please be aware that we do not contract with any insurance companies, so the consultation fee must be paid in cash or by check or credit card.
In most cases, surgery cannot be scheduled for the day after an initial consultation. During the consultation, a proper surgical plan is determined and the pros and cons of surgery are discussed. After this you must take some time to consider whether surgery is right for you before deciding to proceed. Patients evaluated through our Internet Consultation program, however, may be able to schedule surgery for the day following their in-office consultation. Please see our Are You a Candidate? page to learn more about Internet Consultations.
An overnight stay is required only if your rhinoplasty requires a rib cartilage graft or you are a high-risk patient.

Two weeks after rhinoplasty, you may begin exercising gradually and increase your routine as tolerated. Do not start your regular routine until at least three weeks after surgery. Patients who have had rib grafts should not do exercises that cause pain or discomfort in the chest area. However, other exercises such as walking or jogging may start at 3 weeks.
Yes, depending on the length of surgical time required. If your surgeon determines it is safe for you to undergo additional procedures, such as a chin implant or other facial and body surgery, our Allure practice will gladly coordinate it.
Some swelling and bruising of the nose and around the eyes are to be expected. After peaking 48 to 72 hours following surgery, this should start to subside. Some swelling and bruising is usually still present when the cast is removed at one week. Normally, after approximately 10 to 14 days, most of the visible bruising will have disappeared or be easy to conceal. Patients will also experience a feeling of numbness and stiffness in the tip of the nose, which will fade as the swelling subsides. It usually takes about four months for most of the swelling to resolve. While you may initially feel self-conscious about your temporary appearance after rhinoplasty, it is generally not noticeable to others after two to three weeks. In general, one year is required for the nose to assume its final appearance. For patients with thick or oily skin, certain effects may be slower to resolve.
