• Rhinoplasty, enhances facial harmony and the proportions of your nose. It can also correct impaired breathing caused by structural defects in the nose.

    Rhinoplasty surgery can change:

    • Nose size in relation to facial balance
    • Nose width at the bridge or in the size and position of the nostrils
    • Nose profile with visible humps or depressions on the bridge
    • Nasal tip that is enlarged or bulbous, drooping, upturned or hooked
    • Nostrils that are large, wide, or upturned
    • Nasal asymmetry

    Rhinoplasty to correct a deviated septum

    Nose surgery that’s done to improve an obstructed airway requires careful evaluation of the nasal structure as it relates to airflow and breathing. Correction of a deviated septum, one of the most common causes of breathing impairment, is achieved by adjusting the nasal structure to produce better alignment.

    You may be a good candidate for rhinoplasty if:

    • Your facial growth is complete
    • You are physically healthy
    • You don’t smoke
    • You have a positive outlook and realistic goals in mind for the improvement of your appearance

    During your rhinoplasty recovery, a splint and/or packing may be placed inside your nose and a splint or bandages placed on the outside to support and protect the new structures during initial healing.

    You will be given specific instructions that may include:

    • How to care for the surgical site
    • Medications to apply or take orally to aid healing and reduce the potential for infection
    • Specific concerns to look for at the surgical site or in your general health
    • When to follow up with your plastic surgeon.

    Getting back to normal

    Most rhinoplasty patients are up and about within two days, and able to return to school or sedentary work a week or so following surgery. It will be several weeks, however, before you’re entirely up to speed.
