Rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures. During a rhinoplasty, surgery can reshape, reduce, or augment your nose for cosmetic, and sometimes functional, purposes. A rhinoplasty may be performed to correct a birth defect, to repair an injury, to improve breathing, or simply to improve a patient’s appearance.
Candidates for rhinoplasty should be at least 16 years old since it is important that patients have finished their facial growth before proceeding with this surgery. Patients considering rhinoplasty should be in overall good health, should not be smokers, and should have realistic expectations about the outcome. Rhinoplasty is usually an outpatient procedure performed under IV sedation or general anesthesia and takes from 2 to 4 hours. There are two methods for performing a rhinoplasty: open and closed and I will choose the appropriate procedure for you with your input.
Immediately after surgery, your nose and eyes are usually bruised and swollen. Splints will remain on the nose for a week. Packing is possible but rarely used. Most patients feel like themselves within a few days and can to return to regular activities in about a week. During recovery, you should refrain from strenuous exercise and avoid nose blowing, vigorous toothbrushing, or any activity that puts pressure on the nose.
RISKS OF rhinoplasty
As with any surgical procedure, there are risks involved in a rhinoplasty, including adverse reaction to anesthesia, and localized pain, discoloration or numbness.
- Scarring inside the nose causing breathing difficulty
- Bleeding in the nose requiring surgery or nasal packing
- Infection in the nose requiring antibiotics or surgery
- Damage to the skin of the nose causing scars
- Movement of nasal structures during healing requiring revision surgery
A patient may be dissatisfied with the cosmetic results of the operation and a second surgery, called a revision rhinoplasty, may be desired. For most patients, however, rhinoplasty is an uncomplicated procedure with pleasing results. It is important to note that on a national level, 25% of rhinoplasty patients request a procedure to correct an issue after the initial surgery. There are additional costs for this revision surgery. The revision rate in this area is higher than other areas because the nose is right in the middle of your face and a tiny, 1 or2 millimeter issue that would not be noticed anywhere else, is evident every time you look in the mirror or someone sees you face to face.
