Many people are self-conscious about their noses, which makes rhinoplasty one of the most common procedures in plastic surgery today. With that said, I thought I would give you all some details and background on this surgery.
There are many reasons people choose to get nose jobs. Some want to correct an abnormality, such as a hump or narrow nostrils, and others are looking to correct a birth defect or problems that affect air flow, making breathing difficult. It can also restore your appearance after facial injury. Undergoing rhinoplasty provides the patient with the ability to reshape, reduce or augment the size of their nose. The decision to have Rhinoplasty is a major decision and can cause anxiety. Knowing all of this, we work with you and discuss exactly what you’re looking for. We will create a customized surgical plan to ensure your wishes are carried out.
Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that manipulates the structures of the nose to create a more appealing size and shape. This is achieved by adding or removing cartilage. Though the approach may change depending on the patient’s specific circumstances, the surgeon will make a small incision along the bottom of the nose in order to gently lift the skin and access the nasal structures. By adding or removing cartilage, the surgeon can correct asymmetry and aberrations or create a more appealing shape. Once the manipulations are complete, your surgeon will close the incisions and stabilize the structure. Initial recovery takes about two weeks. You will see your final results in six to twelve months.
