What Can Rhinoplasty Correct?
The changes you want to make to your nose are as unique as you are. Fortunately, rhinoplasty can correct nearly any concern you have.
Also called nose reshaping surgery or a nose job, this procedure is commonly used to improve:
- Nose size
- Nose definition
- Nose projection
- Nose width at the bridge
- A dorsal hump
- Nasal tip irregularities and rotation
- Large or wide nostrils
- Nasal asymmetry
- A deviated septum
Dr. Yash will examine your unique nasal structure during your consultation. He will assess your bone, cartilage, and tissue, all of which can be modified to achieve your desired result.
A skillfully performed rhinoplasty offers many benefits. The biggest advantage of this procedure is that it can improve the harmony of your facial features. It does this by making your nose more proportionate.
If you’ve been bothered by the appearance of your nose for some time, this procedure can also boost your confidence considerably. It can allow you to feel more comfortable with your appearance.
When medically indicated, rhinoplasty can help you by relieving restricted breathing and congestion. It is an effective way to correct the structural problems causing these issues.
Ideal Rhinoplasty Candidates
You are likely a candidate for rhinoplasty if you are in good general health and have realistic expectations. Your facial features must also be fully developed.
The procedure is particularly appropriate for individuals looking to restore their nose after an injury, correct breathing problems, or address cosmetic imperfections.
An in-person consultation is necessary to determine if rhinoplasty is an appropriate option for you. During your visit, Dr. Yash will review your relevant medical history and discuss what you hope to accomplish with the surgery. He will also look at your nose to determine what changes are possible.
Because Dr. Yash prides himself on transparency, you can expect to have an open and honest discussion about your nose shaping options. Even if you are not a candidate, he may be able to suggest alternative ways to achieve your goals.
Your Rhinoplasty Procedure
Rhinoplasty is a highly individualized procedure. The exact approach that Dr. Yash will use during your surgery depends on your anatomy and the changes you wish to see.
There are two different techniques for making incisions during nose surgery. These techniques are called open rhinoplasty and closed rhinoplasty.
With open rhinoplasty, an incision is made between the nostrils. This approach gives Dr. Yash greater access to the underlying nose structure and is most appropriate for patients seeking extensive changes. Open rhinoplasty leaves a scar that is concealed in the contours of the nose.
With closed rhinoplasty, incisions are made inside the nostril. This approach does not provide as much access to the nose structure. Therefore, it is commonly used for patients who require minor adjustments to achieve their desired results. Closed rhinoplasty has the added advantage of leaving no visible scarring.
Recovering from Rhinoplasty
In most cases, nose surgery recovery is relatively quick and painless. Following your procedure, you may experience some discomfort that can be easily managed with pain medication.
You will likely be sent home in a nose splint to ensure optimal healing. It is common to wear a splint for five to six days after rhinoplasty.
Patients are typically able to return to work or school in a week. Bruising may be apparent for a week or two, though it can be concealed with makeup. You will be advised to take a break from strenuous exercise for three to six weeks.
Rhinoplasty offers immediate results that continue to improve for several months after surgery. During this time, swelling gradually subsides to reveal your final outcome.
Patients appreciate that nose surgery is permanent. Its longevity often makes it a preferred choice over dermal fillers, which can be used on the nose but only offer temporary improvement.
