Why consider a “nose job”?
Self confidence comes from a variety of factors, one of which is looking and feeling your absolute best. If you find that your confidence is lacking due to the size or shape of your nose, our surgeons can help you achieve the look you truly want. A Nose job, or Rhinoplasty, is not always about looks however.
We also help individuals with breathing difficulties restructure the nose so that they can properly breathe again. In either case, we are skilled and ready to help you achieve your goals.
What is a “nose job”?
A nose job is a procedure conducted to enhance the shape or structure of one’s nose creating facial symmetry. Individuals may choose to have a nose job in order to correct nose size, width, nostril size, or even a deviated septum which is causing breathing difficulty.
A nose job can help create harmony and balance in one’s facial appearance. Individuals that feel embarrassed by the shape or size of their nose will gain a sense of confidence after having corrected their concern through the procedure.
Am I a candidate for a nose job procedure ?
The two groups of candidates for a nose job procedure include those who are unhappy with the physical appearance of their nose and those who have difficulty breathing due to the physical structure of their nose. Individuals in both groups will need to be healthy, non-smoking individuals whose facial growth is complete.
What are the risks ?
The risks associated with a nose job are congruent to that of most surgical procedures and include:
- Adverse reaction to anesthesia
- Poor wound healing or scarring
- Change in skin sensation
- Nasal septum perforation (rare)
- Difficulty breathing
- Unsatisfactory results
All risks will be fully discussed with you during your consultation.
What should I expect during recovery ?
The initial recovery will include placing splints on both the inside and outside of your nose in order to stabilize the restructured bones. Swelling may come and go over the next several months after the procedure has been completed.
