What is rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is a commonly performed procedure in plastic surgery that involves reshaping the nose.
Why is rhinoplasty performed?
Rhinoplasty is performed to:
- Enhance the proportions of the nose to other facial features
- Improve nasal width at the bridge and the position of the nostrils
- Amend visible bumps on the nasal bridge
- Adjust the tip of the nose
- Improve nasal symmetry
- Enhance breathing capabilities
During your consultation appointment, our team will discuss with you what your goals for this procedure with your plastic surgeon.
What results can I expect from a rhinoplasty?
Most of your results following a rhinoplasty are permanent. However, it is natural for some minor changes to occur to your facial profile –including the nose– as your body ages. Results will vary from person to person.
What is the recovery process like for rhinoplasty?
Following your rhinoplasty procedure, protective bandages will be placed around the nose for support during the healing process. It will take time for your reshaped nasal contour to properly refine. Some patients may experience periodic swelling. Our team will provide you with aftercare instructions on how to tend to the operated area. A follow-up appointment will be scheduled for us to monitor your recovery process.
Who is a good candidate for rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty may be a suitable procedure for you if:
- You are not a smoker
- You have realistic aesthetic goals through this procedure
- You are physically healthy individual
- Your facial growth has concluded
