The nose is the central, most prominent feature of the face and a major factor in defining balance and harmony among facial features.

If you are bothered by the size or shape of your nose, then cosmetic surgery of the nose may be right for you.

Cosmetic surgery of the nose, or rhinoplasty, is a procedure to improve the appearance of the nose.

Rhinoplasty Procedure

Is Rhinoplasty Right For Me?

Surgery of the nose is best performed when facial growth is complete, beginning around age 15. Rhinoplasty may be right for you if you:

  • Are healthy without a life-threatening illness or medical condition that can impair healing.
  • Don’t smoke.
  • Have a positive outlook and specific goals in mind for improvement.
What Results Can I Expect Right After Rhinoplasty?
  • Once your surgery is complete, a splint and/or packing will likely be placed inside your nose and a splint or bandages placed on the outside to support and protect the new structures during the initial healing.
  • Initial healing may include some swelling, bruising, headache and discomfort that can be controlled with medication and cold compresses.
  • Your surgeon will instruct you to keep your head elevated at all times until initial swelling has subsided, and to keep any nasal packing in place at all times.
  • A return to light, normal activity is possible as soon as you feel ready, usually within a few days of surgery.
  • Any packing or splints will likely be removed after the first week, although you may need to wear the splint for an additional week or two. You will be ready to return to work and normal activity at this time.
  • Cosmetics can camouflage any bruising or redness that remains.
  • Healing will continue for several weeks as swelling continues to dissipate and the improved appearance of your nose begins to become apparent.
  • Diligent sun protection is recommended as you continue to heal.
  • You must also protect your nose from injury during any physical activity for the next 4-6 months.
What Results Can I Expect Over Time?
  • The outcome of your nose surgery will appear gradually over time.
  • At a minimum, a year is considered normal for the outcome of the surgery to fully refine.
  • In general, the results of nose surgery are permanent; however, cartilage is continually growing and moving tissue that may change the outcome over time.

You should be pleased with the improved balance among your facial features resulting from rhinoplasty. Achieving your personal goals for an enhanced appearance will likely increase your self-confidence.

This patient had consulted a surgeon from another state years prior to this surgery but hadn’t followed through.

She underwent open rhinoplasty with “spreader flap” to improve breathing, reduction of nasal dorsum (hump) and septoplasty. She also received a partial removal of her nasal turbinate and removal of lesion at nasal tip. She has been thrilled with her short-term and long-term results.
