Rhinoplasty

Patients who are unhappy with their noses turn to us to help them achieve the look they want with rhinoplasty.

Rhinoplasty can change not only the appearance of the nose, but it can have a positive impact on how your entire face looks!

Our plastic surgeon can perform rhinoplasty to give your nose and face a more balanced look, make the nose smaller or larger, and get rid of bumps and other issues you may be having.

There are two types of rhinoplasty surgeries: open surgery and closed surgery. With open rhinoplasty, your surgeon will make the incisions on the outside of the nose; this is for rhinoplasty procedures that will require a little more work. During a closed rhinoplasty, your surgeon can make the incisions on the inside of the nose. To give your nose a new shape, she will either remove, add to, or refine cartilage and bone. After reshaping the nose, the surgeon will stitch or suture the incisions. 

A rhinoplasty typically takes two to four hours and is performed under general anesthesia. You will probably need to wear a mustache pad/drip pad for one to two days and a splint for five to seven days. Total recovery time is one to two weeks.
