Your journey to facial harmony

You will feel confident knowing that Dr Gerarchi has the highest levels of knowledge and understanding of the asymmetrical relationship between various aspects of the nose and mouth. No two procedures will be exactly the same as each face is unique, and the precise techniques that will be used to restructure and reform your nose will be meticulously devised and discussed during your consolation phase.

Your recovery

Though a cleft lip rhinoplasty differs to a standard rhinoplasty procedure, you can expect a similar recovery process. It is likely that you will be sent home after your surgery so you can relax and recover in the comfort of your own home. Your nose will be placed in a cast to protect the area and to hold it in place. Stitches will later be removed, or will naturally dissolve with time, depending on which your surgeon has decided will be best for you. Rest is a crucial part of the journey as ever, so Dr Gerarchi recommends that you avoid physical activity, smoking and alcohol consumption and that you sleep with your face in an elevated position.

Managing your recovery

Your comfort in the days following your surgery is paramount, so Dr Gerarchi will prescribe pain medication and antibiotics to assist your body and mind through the healing process. It is important that you inform your surgeon about any additional medication you are taking or are intending to take – including non-prescription – as they may interfere with your healing process and encumber you realising your new nose and lip.

Your post-surgical journey

To ensure that you are progressing satisfactorily and you are pleased with your progress, some follow-up appointments will be scheduled. Dr Gerarchi will examine the area and you are encouraged to communicate openly about how you are feeling and any questions you may have. From consultation, to follow-up, your care and your happiness is at the forefront of the entire process.
