Thank you very much Dr. Saigal. The results are astonishing especially after taking a look at the pictures. I can't believe it myself. I knew i was under good hands. the hard work and effort shows. thank you once again. take care.
I came to Dr. Saigal with very little knowledge about rhinoplasty procedures and apprehension about the final result. Dr. Saigal was completely understanding of my needs and concerns. He walked me through the whole process and even included my family members to ensure that my final result was (...)
After having MOHS surgery on my nose (for basal cell carcinoma), I had a HUGE hole on my face and walked into your office literally in tears. An hour later I left with so much confidence in you, you did such a beautiful job. Six months have gone by and I have a tiny scar that I can hardly see. (...)
I don't even know where to start. Every part of my experience with Dr. Saigal has been beyond excellent. He is truly a professional devoted to his patients. He is a perfectionist. His staff is also amazing. From the begging when I was searching around for a surgeon, Tracy was so friendly and w (...)
I cannot speak highly enough of Dr. Saigal. He has been nothing but excellent throughout my entire experience with him. His professionalism, bedside manner, and follow up is impeccable. I couldn't have been in better hands. I would recommend him to anyone!
I recently saw Dr. Saigal for treatment for general signs of aging of my face. He was both patient and extremely careful to explain the procedure for injecting Restylane, Juvederm and Botox. He spent a great deal of time making sure that I felt confidant that he understood my expectations and (...)
I want to express my deepest gratitude to Dr. Saigal and his staff. I really think of Dr. Saigal as my friend more than I think of him as my surgeon. He made me feel very comfortable and my new nose looks so amazing and so natural. Even my mom loves it, and she didn’t even want me to have the (...)
Throughout the entire process, Dr. Saigal was very straightforward and reassuring. He answered all my (and my family’s) questions and surgery went EXACTLY as he explained. I love my new look and recommend him highly to all my friends and family.
I always hated the hump on my nose and wanted to get a rhinoplasty for the longest time. I also had a deviated septum which blocked breathing from my left nostril. I am not a fan of cosmetic surgery, but in my case I had no choice. I was extremely lucky to come across Dr. Saigal. I knew he wou (...)
A small splint will be placed on the nose immediately after the surgery and remain for one week at which time the splint will be removed and the nose cleaned. There may be some bruising and swelling around the eyes. Cold compresses and an-ti-swelling medication aid in recovery.
No. When they talk about a "nose job," patients are using a slang term for nasal surgery. Rhinoplasty is the technical medical term for cosmetic nasal surgery.
Usually there is mild discomfort with nasal surgery. Oral medication will be prescribed to help with the discomfort. Cold compresses also help with discomfort
Dr. Saigal uses a small, gentle cotton ball coated with antibiotic ointment that is placed in each nostril. This is because a special quilting suture is used to control any bleeding and greatly decrease the amount of discomfort associated with formal nasal packing. A small drip dressing will be applied after surgery.
As a rule, 80% of the swelling is gone after two weeks; another 10% after two months. The tip of the nose may retain swelling longer and continued improvement in the tip can be seen over the next several months. There may be some temporary numbness of skin of the nose which improves with time.
Most patients can be seen in public in a week, after the splint is removed. It is important to avoid strenuous activity for 2 weeks. At this time you can gradually work back to your usual routine, including exercise. Contact sports should be avoided for 6 weeks.
There are risks with any surgical procedure; however, the risks of facial plastic surgery are minimal. Bleeding, infection, unfavorable scarring, asymmetry, septal perforation (hole in septum), and persistent nasal deformity are rare. These will be discussed during your consultation as well as ways to avoid them.
A purely cosmetic procedure is never covered by insurance. However, if a patient has difficulty breathing and is found to have a deviated nasal septum or nasal allergy resulting in enlarged turbinates, the functional portion of the surgery may be covered by insurance. A sinus condition may be treated at the same time as a rhinoplasty. For your convenience, our practice offers CareCredit financing support for all cosmetic fees.
