How do I find the right plastic surgeon for my rhinoplasty?

You can hide many types of plastic surgery under clothes. A rhinoplasty is not one of them. Your nose is one of the main focal features of your face and, as a result, is one of the ways people shape their first impressions about you. If you’re choosing to get rhinoplasty because you don’t like the current appearance of your nose, the last thing you want is a new nose that looks fake or has visible scars.

That’s where Dr. Peck comes in. He’s a rhinoplasty expert. In fact, top-tier nose jobs run in his family. His father is the world-famous plastic surgeon George Peck, MD. Dr. George Peck trained his son extensively on rhinoplasty procedures, ensuring he could further the family legacy by performing beautiful, natural-looking nose jobs. 

What should I expect from a rhinoplasty?

Some patients choose rhinoplasty to change the appearance of their nose. Others choose it to improve their breathing. When you choose Richard Peck Plastic Surgery for your rhinoplasty, you should expect a dedication to helping you achieve your aesthetic and breathing goals. 

Dr. Peck performs endonasal rhinoplasties. That means he places all of the incisions necessary for your nose reshaping inside of your nostrils. As a result, you have no visible scarring after your procedure. 

During your procedure, Dr. Peck can adjust the bone, cartilage, and/or skin of your nose, depending on your desired outcome from the procedure. Some of the issues he can correct with an endonasal rhinoplasty include:

  • An asymmetrical nose
  • A too-large nose
  • Too-wide nostrils
  • A hooked or bulbous nose tip
  • Bumps or ridges along the bridge of the nose
  • Deviated septum

Whatever your reason for choosing a rhinoplasty, Dr. Peck ensures your new nose blends naturally and gracefully with your face. 

How is the rhinoplasty healing process?

After your procedure, Dr. Peck dresses your nose, usually with a splint and gauze. He gives you detailed directions on when and how to change your dressing. You may have some swelling and bruising for up to a few weeks after your procedure. Dr. Peck recommends resting during this period.
