NOSE SURGERY (RHINOPLASTY)

       

       Rhinoplasty is the name of the operation to correct deformities of the nose. Its primary purpose is to improve the appearance and, in some instances, to improve function. The goal of a rhinoplasty is to produce a nose that appears natural, functions properly and is in balance and harmony with the rest of the face. The ”operated look“ is one that should be avoided. The patient’s wishes in regard to the type of nose desired are always considered, but there are limiting factors. Skin texture and thickness, previous injury and facial proportions and contour play an important role in what can and should be achieved. All of this will be discussed with you during your consultation.

FULL RHINOPLASTY

is a procedure performed to remove the excess bone and cartilage to reshape the appearance of the nose. After alteration of these supporting structures, the skin is allowed to drape over them to give the nose its new shape. The changes may be subtle or dramatic depending on the needs of the patient. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia and takes 2 hours. You may need to have someone stay with you the night after surgery and can usually resume work in 7 to 10 days. The cost includes the hospital fee, anesthesia fee and all of your follow up visits.
