Understanding Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty, better known as a “nose job”, is a cosmetic surgery that involves reconstructing and changing the appearance of a nose. There are a multitude of reasons individuals receive a nose job including: better breathing, more streamlined structure, balance and a better overall appearance. With the reasons varying for a desired nose job, there are two types of rhinoplasty procedures that are generally performed:

  • Reconstructive- to restore the form, shape and function of the nose
  • Cosmetic- to alter the appearance of the nose

Regardless of the reason for your desire or need for rhinoplasty, the ultimate goal is to provide an enhanced and natural looking nose that provides optimum breathing, appearance and function.

Rhinoplasty Questions & Answers

What’s the history behind rhinoplasty?
The art of rhinoplasty lies within ancient times. In fact, some of the original nose reconstructive procedures date back as far as the 5th century AD. A procedure referred to as an “Indian flap” was utilized which reconstructed the noses of individuals, following major injury. Throughout time, the art of rhinoplasty has evolved into one of the most successful cosmetic procedures. With attention to detail and proficiency, we provide patients with nose surgeries that ensure better appearance, better health and minimal recovery time.

Consultation- Your rhinoplasty procedure and process will begin with a complete consultation. It’s important to note that a rhinoplasty isn’t a “one-size-fits-all” surgery.

Your anesthesiologist will begin an IV and administer medication that garners rapid sleepiness. You will be completely unaware of anything being done, during your nose job procedure. There is absolutely no pain at all with your rhinoplasty procedure. Once your surgery is complete, you can expect minimal to no discomfort afterward.

Recovery- During the recovery process, we utilize the highest level of skilled nursing personnel ensuring complete healing and improvement. As medical masters of rhinoplasty, we create noses that don’t include the traditional appearance of “black eyes” and “packed gauze”.

Afterward- After your rhinoplasty, your nose will be presentable in appearance in approximately 5-7 days, with the majority of minor swelling being resolved.

In fact, your nose’s appearance is generally excellent by 14 days following surgery, with gradual refinement subsequently taking place. We will also spearhead your post-operative care, which will entail follow-up visits, medications and more.
