I went for a second consult for a revison rhino and the surgeon said I would be under for 7-8 hours. First, is that a long time for a revision?


He said it is safe to be under that long and he is a perfectionist and takes his time. He is also working on my sinus area. My septum is very crooked and has alot of scar tissue from the prior surgery. I assume since my nose needs alot of work then the time frame we discussed is resonable.

Speed of a surgeon depends on a variety of factors. Its not just about being a perfectionist. Some surgeons are indecisive or simply slow. Others are slick and smooth and fast but good. (more)
