Dr. Kay performs Rhinoplasty procedures in an outpatient facility. You will be returning home or to our concierge hotel for recovery.
Rhinoplasty is most commonly done under general anesthesia, which is where you are put to sleep. Nasal reshaping can be done under sedation, but Dr. Kay will discuss the best options for you on an individualized plan for your procedure.
You should be able to return to work within 7-10 days after nasal reshaping.
If you have an injury to the nose and there is documentation relating to that injury, then your insurance will review the case to see if this is a covered service for each individual plan. If you have a documented airway obstruction, deviated septum then your insurance will review it in relation to your insurance plan.
Your nose will be reshaped to enhance your facial proportions which can lift your spirits and make you look and feel better about yourself. If you are having reconstructive nasal procedure to improve your breathing, or snoring issue then you will feel relieved after your procedure.
