Some women and men are unsatisfied with their physical appearance. Often, the shape and esthetics of the nose plays a key role in these concerns. Should you change something or do something? This question stays in the minds for years together with the question if a rhinoplasty could be the right solution.
With the experience of several thousand treatments on patients with similar concerns, I offer a consultation to you, during which many questions on the form, function and esthetics of the nose can be addressed. I invite you, in a very professional and enjoyable setting with enough time – in the heart of Munich – to speak with me, an expert on this topic, to discuss your questions, concerns and wishes. Every case is highly individual and unique and deserves an informed decision. I may help you to answer the question if a rhinoplasty could be the right decision for you.
The surgical correction of the nose, so called (septo-) rhinoplasty, is considered one of the technically most difficult operations in plastic surgery and otorhinolaryngology.
This is due to the complex anatomy of the nose with several cartilages and bones as well as soft tissues – and the fact that every millimeter can be decisive for esthetics and function. Furthermore a good nasal breathing function is very important for the overall well-being. ⟶
Prof. Dr. med. Veit
For more then 10 years I have been working as a board certified specialist in otorhinolaryngology and facial plastic surgery in University Medical Centers and specialized practices. Since summer 2021 I opened up my private practice “Rhinoplasty Munich” in the heart of my Bavarian hometown.
Because of my highly specialized knowledge and experience on the topic of nasal surgery and rhinoplasty I can offer you my expert opinion.
My research activities and peer-reviewed publications in international medical journals together with expert colleagues, the active participation on multiple conventions and meetings, and the annual performance of 250 rhinoplasties enable me to offer you a very modern, gentle and effective functional and esthetic rhinoplasty. ⟶
Frequently asked questions
When will the bruising disappear and I be “socially acceptable” again?
Typically 2 weeks, at most 3 weeks after rhinoplasty. By then, the bruising will resolve, so that you will feel good again and nobody will suspect anything – except the shape change of course.
Do you use nasal dressing or packing?
No, we do not use an inner nasal dressing of packing, so you will be able to breath right after the surgery and it must not be removed.
Will my health insurance cover a part of the costs?
If you have difficulties with nasal breathing, the functional part of the operation will usually be covered by your health insurance. The esthetic rhinoplasty will normally not be covered by your health insurance.
Course of the
At a first counseling appointment, patient and doctor get to know each other. Prof. Veit will answer all of your questions, discuss expectations, wishes and concerns regarding a possible rhinoplasty. Besides a careful examination of the nose, a computer-assisted visual simulation will take place. Your well-being is our most important goal. ⟶
Before the operation
During a second consultation all important details are discussed and refreshed again with Prof. Veit. Final remarks and documentation as well as written informed consent take place. You get to know the organizational details of the hospital and treatment. ⟶
In THE HOSPITAL
The operation usually takes place in the morning or noon, Prof. Veit will see you before and after the operation, which normally has a duration of 2 hours. You will stay at the Dr. Gärtner-Hospital for 2 to 3 days and will be seen daily by the surgeon. ⟶
After the operation
A few days after you dismissal from hospital you will have your first follow-up visit in the practice. At this time you will be counseled and a careful inspection of the nose, removal of the inner dressing, as well as change of the bandage will take place. You will be able to see your “new nose” for the first time, although it will still be quite swollen. After another week all bandages will be removed and you will feel almost “normal” again. The bruising and swelling will disappear within the next days. ⟶
Further follow-up visits
Typically there will be consecutive follow-up visits after 6 weeks, 3 months, 6 months and 12 months. The course of healing will be evaluated and questions can be answered. ⟶
