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.
*All pricing includes pre-op/post-op appointments, surgeons fee, and facility/anesthesia fees.
What is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular and commonly done plastic surgery procedures. Also known as a “nose job,” rhinoplasty is done to augment your nose whether it is for health purposes or birth defect, injury, or functional reasons, or strictly cosmetic it is done to help improve the harmony of the face, as well as correct any damage done to the nose or improve a patient’s breathing. There are two types of rhinoplasty, open and closed.
Am I a good candidate for Rhinoplasty?
Ideal candidates for rhinoplasty should be at least 16 years old before deciding to undergo a rhinoplasty, be in overall good health, non smokers, and to have realistic expectations for how they would like their nose to appear post surgery. Our team will sit with patients and decide which type of rhinoplasty will best benefit their needs and will also ask for a patients input as well during the consultation process.
Are there any risks to getting Rhinoplasty?
There are risks with any surgery involved, and we do our best to inform patients of all the risks before undergoing any sort of procedure. Risks that can come from getting rhinoplasty done is scarring within the nose that can hinder breathing, bleeding, infection and damage of the skin that can lead to scarring.
How long is the recovery period?
Majority of patients post surgery will experience swelling and bruising around the eyes and nose, and will have to wear splints on the nose for a week. Most patients reported being able to resume their regular activities a week post surgery, but we urge patients that they be careful with any strenuous activity and avoid blowing their nose too often or brushing their teeth too vigorously since it adds extra pressure to the nose.
