untitled-design-1

Looking in the mirror every day and seeing a nasal bridge that looks convex and projects outwards can be depressing. If you’re getting rhinoplasty in Hawaii to fix this, it’s helpful to learn about dorsal hump rhinoplasty recovery options here in Honolulu.

During dorsal hump rhinoplasty recovery, a splint may be used to stabilize the area. The area is also wrapped in tape. The splint will be worn for a week, after which it will be taken off. After this, the patient should re-wrap the nose once a day for the next two weeks, aiding in the healing process.

Experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Shim Ching will be happy to offer his perspective and approach to the procedure, provide you with patient education, and answer any questions you may have.
