WHAT IS THE IDEAL RHINOPLASTY?
Rhinoplasty, sometimes referred to as a “nose job,” is a procedure used to modify the shape and proportion of your nose to create facial harmony. It can change the size, width, and shape of your nose as well as the position of the tip. It can also correct impaired breathing caused by structural defects such as a deviated septum. The ideal rhinoplasty does not leave you with an “operated” look but creates a harmonious, natural result.
WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE?
An ideal candidate for rhinoplasty is those who would like to enhance the shape and size of their nose to improve their appearance and facial harmony. If you want to correct your breathing, strengthen the appearance of your nose and obtain a natural-looking result, this is the procedure for you.
During a rhinoplasty, incisions are created through your nostrils to allow access to the bone and cartilage that will be sculpted to create your desired look. If your new nose needs a small amount of additional cartilage, your doctor may remove some from your ear or deep inside your nose. This procedure is done under anesthesia and usually takes 2 to 3 hours.
After surgery, your doctor may place a plastic or metal splint on your nose to help retain its new shape while it heals. Patients can expect discomfort, swelling, and bruising that improve significantly after a week. Most people can return to work after one week, and strenuous physical activity should be avoided for a minimum of 2 weeks.
You should be able to see immediate results in the shape and size of your nose after your rhinoplasty. Although swelling can linger for a few weeks after your procedure, your nose will continue to improve and settle into its new place. If you are impatient, a rhinoplasty may not be for you: It can take up to a full year to see your final results!
The cost for a rhinoplasty can vary depending on the needs of every patient but it is usually $7,500 – $11,000.
