All major rhinoplasty surgeries are typically carried out with the help of general anesthesia. But there are specific cases where local anesthetics and IV sedation can be used. Procedures usually take anywhere from one to three hours to complete. The time it takes depends on the complexity of the case, also the desire of the patients to achieve impeccable results are of course taken into account. Dr. Torgerson’s rhinoplasty surgeries are performed through closed method; what this means is that the nasal surgery is done with incisions made inside the patient’s nose. Dr. Torgerson strongly believes that this method results in better patient satisfaction and it allows him to operate with better precision and care. Open method is another approach and greater nose exposure is achieved by actually opening the skin overlying the nose.

Patients are advised to take at least a week off work in order to better recover. The first week usually entails stuffiness, a little bleeding, some bruising and swelling; casts are removed a week after surgery.
