As humans, the nose is one of our most prominent features. It is important to our overall appearance that it is well shaped, functions properly, and fits within the natural contours on our face. For those unhappy with the shape, size or proportion of their nose, rhinoplasty (cosmetic nose surgery) may offer the improvement they seek. There are many variations to the rhinoplasty procedure. The technique our surgeon uses will depend upon your individual features and aesthetic goals. Alterations can be made to change your nose angle, reshape the tip, narrow the nostrils or change the size or width of the nasal bridge.
There are a couple of different ways to perform nose surgery, that being the closed technique and the open technique. Many plastic surgeons prefer the open rhinoplasty method because this approach allows them to gain a better view of the inside of the nose, as well as greater access to its support structures. The incision is made between the nostrils or under the nose near the nostrils. Once this incision is made, the skin is pulled back and the bones, cartilage and tissue within the nose are exposed so that reshaping and reconstruction can occur. Once the incisions are closed, scarring is minimal and will not be seen. Closed rhinoplasty is less invasive.
Rhinoplasty is considered an outpatient procedure. It is performed in an accredited surgical facility under general anesthesia. Patients will be swollen and bruised around the eyes and nose for up to 2 weeks. These are the primary side effects after surgery, but they will go away quickly if proper care is taken. Nasal packing, which is the insertion of gauze or cotton into the nasal chamber to control bleeding may be used. After surgery, patients will wear a nose splint for a couple of days. Once this splint is removed, the newly shaped nose will be revealed. It can take a few months for the nose to gain its sensation, as well as its final contour and softness.
