For those who are dissatisfied with the appearance of their nose, rhinoplasty can help. Rhinoplasty is one of the most common cosmetic procedures performed, and it can correct the size and shape of the nose, as well as help those who experience difficulties with breathing.
Many people choose rhinoplasty to address one or more of the following conditions:
- Facial imbalance
- Nasal asymmetry
- Disproportionate nostril size
- Nasal tip that is bulbous, drooping, or upturned
- Bumps or depressions along the nasal profile
- Breathing difficulties
- Nasal trauma
- Nasal deformities
- Deviated septum
Your rhinoplasty procedure will be completely customized to your individual needs, facial structure, and aesthetic goals. However, a typical rhinoplasty procedure involves a reduction of the size and shape of the nose. IV sedation or general anesthesia will be used. Incisions are made inside the nose. The bone and cartilage are rearranged using specialized tools to achieve the desired aesthetic, and the skin is then carefully placed over the new shape.
Bruising and swelling after surgery is normal and expected to decrease over the following weeks, although it can take up to a year to experience the full benefits of the rhinoplasty.
