In What Ways Can Rhinoplasty Surgery Change the Nose?
Your nose is a central part of your face. As a result, if you aren’t happy with its shape, it can lead to a lack of confidence and happiness in how you look. That’s why rhinoplasty – or surgery to improve the look of your nose – is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures. At Exclusively Faces Cosmetic Surgery and Medispa in Sharpsburg, GA, our team performs rhinoplasty surgery to help patients meet their goals, whether that’s in appearance or function. Here are the ways in which rhinoplasty surgery can change your nose for the better.
How can rhinoplasty surgery change the nose?
Almost anyone can be unhappy with the appearance of their nose. Rhinoplasty, which is commonly referred to as a “nose job,” is performed on men and women of all ages to improve the appearance or function of the nose. In many cases, people feel like a nose doesn’t quite “fit” their face, because of its larger size.
Rhinoplasty can address this and many other issues, including:
- Masculine nose
- Crooked nose
- Turned-up nose
- Hooked nose
- Humped nose
- Bump on nose
- Bulbous nasal tip
- Nostril concerns, like large nostrils or asymmetric nostrils
- Previous botched nose job
- Previous nose trauma
It can also address functional problems of the nose, such as:
- Trouble breathing
- Difficulty sleeping
- Sleep apnea
Rhinoplasty surgery can help you achieve improved facial symmetry and balance, leading to enhanced confidence and self-esteem.
Rhinoplasty surgery for your face
At Exclusively Faces Cosmetic Surgery and Medispa, our team takes care to personalize rhinoplasty procedures for each patient. Starting with an initial consultation at our office in Sharpsburg, GA, we’ll review your facial features, including how symmetrical they are, what proportions they have, and any other aspects that you want us to address.
We’ll discuss your goals and desires to create a plan that helps meet your needs. This might include reducing bony material or cartilage, cartilage grafting, and more. Our goal is to ensure your new nose fits your existing facial features to enhance your natural beauty.
What happens during rhinoplasty surgery?
After a treatment plan is created, rhinoplasty surgery is done as an outpatient procedure. You’ll be under sedation to make the procedure more comfortable. The surgery usually begins by removing excess tissue and cartilage or building up and reconstructing existing cartilage. Depending on your individual plan, the features of your nose will be repositioned, and the skin will be draped over the new framework of your nose.
To finish the procedure, you’ll have sutures on the inside of your nose or along the external crease, where there will be minimal to no scarring.
After rhinoplasty surgery, you’ll rest in our private recovery area before going home to heal. You can expect some bruising and swelling around your nose and below your eyes. To minimize this, use ice packs and inflammatory medications. For the next few weeks, you should avoid strenuous activity as you heal. After about 2 – 4 weeks, your nose will look normal, and you’ll be able to enjoy your new look with confidence.
