Scarless Rhinoplasty: Minimal Recovery and Maximal Results

If you have ever considered rhinoplasty to refine the size, shape, or symmetry of your nose, you’re not alone. Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular procedures performed in the world and has helped a diverse range of patients attain a more balanced, proportionate appearance. Confidence can soar after rhinoplasty, which is why so many patients are eager to discover how nose recontouring may help them achieve their goals.

Traditionally, the prospect of post-operative scarring or a long, arduous recovery period would deter some individuals from pursuing the procedure. With the scarless closed rhinoplasty performed by world-renowned board-certified plastic surgeonJoe Gryskiewicz, MD, patients can recontour their nose with no external scarring, a relatively brief recovery period, and lifetime results!

No Scarring, Minimal Downtime

Dr. Joe Gryskiewicz specializes in the scarless rhinoplasty procedure, which places incisions inside the nose and doesn’t cause any external scarring. From these internal incisions, Dr. Gryskiewicz can make many improvements to the nasal cartilage, soft tissue, and bones. Best of all, there are no visible scars after surgery to ensure a natural-looking enhancement that complements your inherent beauty. As a previous president of the Rhinoplasty Society and the leader of the cadaver lab at the annual meeting of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Dr. Gryskiewicz trains plastic surgeons from all over the world in advanced rhinoplasty techniques.

Many patients are surprised by how easy and tolerable the recovery period after a scarless closed rhinoplasty can be. A week of swelling can be expected, followed by another week of bruising. By the third week after surgery, most patients feel comfortable enough to go out to dinner and other public outings. At three months post-op, you should be ready for events, weddings, and other special occasions. This quick recovery technique preserves the important structures of the nose to reduce swelling, bruising, and downtime, as well as make the recovery period more comfortable.

Preview the Potential Results Before Surgery

Dr. Joe can also give patients a preview of what their potential rhinoplasty results can look like by performing a non-surgical liquid rhinoplasty using dermal fillers! With these soft-tissue fillers, the outcome of some of your desired enhancements can be simulated without surgery or incisions so you have a “preview” of the improvements possible after a surgical procedure.
