The Rhinoplasty experience

The day of surgery:

  • Especially today, the best place to have surgery is in a fully accredited Outpatient Surgery Center….. Not a hospital. 
  • Dr. Brennan performs surgery at Surgical Suites at Newport Center, across from Fashion Island.
  • A very professional staff will greet you. 
  • You will have the safest method of anesthesia with no pain or awareness during the Newport Beach Rhinoplasty surgery.
  • Dr. Brennan has developed a unique Orange County Rhinoplasty procedure. Many cosmetic surgeons in Orange County use the “Open or External Technique,” which requires an incision along the base of the nose, increasing the surgical time and often resulting in permanent physical scarring. 

Dr. George Brennan in Orange County employs a closed technique in which all incisions are concealed inside the nose, utilizing:

  • No scarring
  • No packing – Dr. Brennan designed a system that eliminates the need for nasal packing.
  • No pain – The most you will need is Extra Strength Tylenol.

After a short recovery, you are sent home with a responsible caregiver (family or friend). You will shortly be fully awake and alert and may have a lite diet and get a good night’s sleep. You will be seen the following day for nasal hygiene and can breathe comfortably and have no pain. You may resume all regular hygiene, activities, diet, and sleep the day after surgery.

Only two things (with rare exceptions) can occur – Minor temporary swelling and minor temporary bruising.

The 30 minutes you spend in the operating room will change your life forever. If you want a rhinoplasty in Orange County, CA, please call our office at 949-644-1641 or book an appointment online today.
