The patient arrives at The Keyes Surgicenter on the day of surgery. The registered nurse will check-in and prepare the patient for rhinoplasty surgery. Dr. Keyes and the anesthesiologist will meet with the patient prior to starting surgery. Dr. Keyes usually performs this procedure on an outpatient basis, either at The Keyes Surgicenter or at the affiliated hospitals - Cedars-Sinai Hospital or Century City Hospital.
Following the procedure, a small splint is applied to the nose for protection and to reduce swelling in the early postoperative
period. This splint is usually removed between five to seven days after surgery; bruising is variable. Dr. Keyes does not routinely use packing in the nose in most cases.
