Nose surgery, otherwise known as rhinoplasty, has quickly become one of the most popular surgical procedures in the world.

If you are looking for an expertly done ultrasonic rhinoplasty in Austin, Dr. Antunes can help you.
What can I expect from recovery?
Following your ultrasonic rhinoplasty in Austin, bruising and swelling around the eye area are normal and to be expected in the first week. Beyond that, as there will be some temporary nasal congestion, patients will need to adjust to mouth breathing for a period of time. As with any surgical procedure, patients are likely to feel a bit fatigued for the first few days. Patients should get ample rest while remaining in an upright position, ensuring that the swelling goes down.
Generally speaking, preservation rhinoplasty is associated with a lighter, faster recovery process than that of traditional rhinoplasty. One week of complete rest is usually needed following the treatment. Patients should refrain from engaging in strenuous exercise for at least six weeks following the treatment.
The final outcome of the procedure is usually evident by the 6-month mark following the procedure.
