Rhinoplasty, sometimes referred to as a “nose job” or “nose reshaping” by patients, enhances facial harmony and the proportions of your nose. It can also correct impaired breathing caused by structural defects in the nose.
Medications are administered for your comfort during the surgical procedure.
Rhinoplasty is performed either using a closed procedure, where incisions are hidden inside the nose, or an open procedure, where an incision is made across the columella, the narrow strip of tissue that separates the nostrils.
Through these incisions, the skin that covers the nasal bones and cartilages is gently raised, allowing access to reshape the structure of the nose.
An overly large nose may be reduced by removing bone or cartilage. If the septum is deviated, it can be straightened and the projections inside the nose reduced to improve breathing.
The visible improvements of a Neck Lift appear as swelling and bruising subside. As a restorative surgery, a Neck Lift does not change your fundamental appearance and cannot stop the aging process.
During your Rhinoplasty recovery, a splint or bandages placed on the outside to support and protect the new structures during initial healing.
While initial swelling subsides within a few weeks, it may take up to a year for your new nasal contour to fully refine. During this time you may notice gradual changes in the appearance of your nose as it refines to a more permanent outcome.
Swelling may come and go and worsen in the morning during the first year following your Rhinoplasty surgery
