What is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty, or nose reconstruction surgery, is commonly known as a “nose job” and refers to a surgical procedure that repositions the nose, as well as alters the size and shape. Rhinoplasty, or nose reconstruction surgery, may also be performed to correct impaired breathing that is caused by structural defects in the septum or nostrils. Rhinoplasty may be recommended to improve the size or proportions of the nose or to repair tissue damage that results from injury or past surgeries. The overarching goal of rhinoplasty is to improve the nose in a way that restores harmony to the facial features.
Benefits of Rhinoplasty
Rhinoplasty, or nose reconstruction surgery, is typically done to correct a nose that is off-center; has a hooked, round, or misshapen tip; a bump or “ski slope” on the bridge; is either too wide or too thin and looks out of balance with the other facial features; or virtually any other aspect of the nose that needs correction. Rhinoplasty, or nose reconstruction surgery, provides the following benefits:
- Corrects the size of the nose
- Improves the appearance of the bridge of the nose
- Enhances your facial profile by eliminating bumps or depressions
- Reshapes the tip of the nose
- Reshapes the nostrils
- Restores symmetry to your nose
- Centers a nose that is off-center
Rhinoplasty is also used to reconstruct damaged tissue caused by past injury, illness or surgery, and it may also be used in some cases to correct respiratory problems caused by such structural defects as a deviated septum.
Is Rhinoplasty Right for Me?
If you are an adult or teenager enjoying overall good health, but you’d like to see improvements in the appearance of your nose, you may be a good candidate for rhinoplasty.
For teenagers, Dr. Groves and his team will determine if the bones of your face are fully developed before recommending rhinoplasty.
How Is Rhinoplasty Performed?
Cosmetic rhinoplasty is a highly individualized procedure that requires a unique approach to every patient in order to provide the most personalized, customized, and natural results. Dr. Groves and his team will work closely with you to recommend the best treatment options to correct your particular problem areas. Rhinoplasty is normally performed as an outpatient procedure, and may require up to two hours to complete. Following the procedure, you may be advised to wear a splint to help your nose maintain its new shape for a few days and to protect and support delicate tissue.
