Rhinoplasty

A nose that doesn’t complement your facial appearance can be a huge source of anxiety. You may have been born with a natural defect in your nasal appearance, or trauma to the nose could have affected your nasal aesthetic. Restoring a pleasing facial balance helps many patients feel more comfortable with their appearance. Rhinoplasty is designed to correct physical and functional abnormalities of the nose. Dr. Rey tailors each procedure to the patient for natural, harmonious results.

Benefits of Rhinoplasty

Improved Size

Improved Size

Most people considering rhinoplasty feel that their nose is too large for their face. For this, we can remove cartilage and make a smaller nose. However, some people may feel their nose is too small in comparison to their features, and cartilage can be added to build out their nose.

Better Shape

Better Shape

Bumps, humps, and crookedness can all impact the shape of your nose. Dr. Rey uses an artistic eye to sculpt new nasal structures that beautifully complement your facial features. An improved shape can help your nose look and feel more natural.

Facial Harmony

Facial Harmony

As the focal point of the face, an unattractive nose can cause disharmony with your facial features. A nose that is poorly sized and shaped can affect the balance between the rest of your facial features. Restoring facial harmony can help you feel more confident in your looks.

Design Your Rhinoplasty

Open rhinoplasty utilizes an incision placed on the base of the nose between the nostrils. This provides visual access to the underlying structures but may result in some mild visible scarring.

Closed rhinoplasty places all incisions inside the nasal cavity. This provides adequate access to the nasal structures and doesn’t result in any visible scarring.

  • Septoplasty is performed to correct breathing problems caused by a blocked nasal passage due to a deviated septum, which is the crooked alignment of the cartilage that separates the nasal passages.
  • People with deviated septums often snore and have difficulties breathing during physical activities.
  • Septoplasty can be performed on its own or in conjunction with aesthetic corrections.
  • Overly large nose
  • Nasal hump
  • Wide nasal bridge
  • Enlarged nostrils
  • Small nasal structures
  • Drooping nasal tip

Concerns

You will experience bruising and swelling around your nose following your procedure. You may feel impacted or have trouble breathing due to the nasal packing. Any discomfort can be controlled using oral pain medication. You will need to rest with your head elevated for at least one week following your surgery. Most patients can return to work within two weeks of their surgery. You will be required to limit your physical activities for up to four weeks following rhinoplasty. The majority of your swelling should subside within six weeks, after which your final results will become apparent.

The amount of scarring that develops is dependent on the techniques used as well as your body’s natural healing process. An open technique may result in visible scarring, which fades over time.

The cost of this procedure may vary from patient to patient depending on various factors such as type of correction, surgical fees, and anesthesia fees. A detailed quote will be provided during your consultation.

Anesthesia is used to prevent pain during the procedure. Mild discomfort after the procedure can be easily controlled with medication prescribed by your plastic surgeon.

Faq

The best candidates for rhinoplasty are healthy teens and adults who are dissatisfied with the size and shape of their nose but have realistic expectations for what the surgery can accomplish (i.e., they are not expecting perfection).

Many teens benefit socially and emotionally from undergoing rhinoplasty. The facial features must be fully developed before we consider surgery, which usually occurs between 15 and 17 years of age.

Rhinoplasty is performed using a general anesthetic to ensure patient safety and comfort.

Rhinoplasty provides long-term correction to your nasal appearance. Most patients don’t require any follow-up procedure to help them achieve the results they desire. Depending on the technique used for your surgery, you may develop mild visible scarring on the underside of the nose, which is likely to fade over time.
