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 hospital (https://gaertnerklinik.de) 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.
