We perform rhinoplasty in order to reshape the nose and/or improve nasal function. Appearance may be improved for those people who are dissatisfied with the shape and size of their nose. Nasal reconstruction was one of the first cosmetic procedures ever developed and is among those most frequently performed today. Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure in which deformities of the nose are corrected by removing, rearranging, or reshaping bone or cartilage.
REASONS FOR SURGERY
Reasons include reducing the size of the nose, removing bumps, and improving the angle of a nose. Conditions may be natural or due to external trauma to the face. This operation may also help patients who have difficulty breathing. The operation can be performed on all age groups, including teens and the elderly.
A medical history along with a careful examination is conducted in order to evaluate your general health. We will discuss with you the way your nose can look in relation to your other facial features. Preoperative instructions may include the elimination of certain drugs in order to minimize the possibility of excess bleeding. Antibiotics may be prescribed before surgery to prevent infection.
METHOD OF SURGERY
Surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia. In most cases involving a reduction in shape or size of the nose, improvement of the angle, or removal of a hump. The bone and cartilage are reshaped and the skin redraped over the surface. Patients who have a deviated septum may benefit by correction of this problem. The incisions are placed inside the nose, unless the surgeon uses an open approach, in which case the incisions are made across the tissue between the nostrils. In cases where the nostrils flare, the surgeon may make an incision at the junction between the nose and the skin of the upper lip to narrow the flared appearance. It is not unusual to combine rhinoplasty with chin augmentation to improve the profile.
The recovery takes several weeks. Most people resume their normal nonathletic activities within a week or two. Following surgery, a lightweight splint is applied to maintain the new shape of the nose. The splint is removed within a week. There is always some stuffiness of the nose, especially when work has been done on the nasal septum. Nasal packing may be required for one or more days..
Pain is minimal and is controlled with medications. Bruising occurs around the eyes but fades within 1-2 weeks, in most cases. Swelling may be slow to completely resolve.
