Special training for a functional and natural rhinoplasty.
Some people are not comfortable with the nose they were born with or with the way aging has changed the shape of their nose. Others have noses that were affected by a traumatic incident or an injury. From a functional standpoint, some people require a rhinoplasty atlanta as a result of their external nasal structure to improve breathing. A rhinoplasty can also be performed for people who have a deviated septum.
A rhinoplasty procedure can correct many aesthetic and functional abnormalities of the nose. Having a well-shaped nose can inspire confidence and greatly improve the overall balance and beauty of the face.
Our goal is to give you a natural new look that helps you have a more positive self image. We believe in making each nose “fit” the patient’s face and we utilize only the latest technology for the most natural looking results. Our Vectra M3 3D imaging software helps future rhinoplasty patients visualize what their new noses will look like post-operation.
How a Rhinoplasty is Performed
Rhinoplasty is performed utilizing concealed incisions inside the nose. In some cases, a small “w-shaped” incision is made in the skin of the columella (the structure between your nostrils). For other rhinoplasty patients, an incision is made at the base of the alae, the flaring part of the nostrils.
In either case, the bone and cartilage that determine the shape of the nose are carefully sculpted to give the intended result—an ideally-shaped, optimally-functional nose.
After surgery, the nose is taped with a nasal splint to hold the support structures in place. Absorbable sutures are used inside the nose. If external incisions are made, there may be sutures that need to be removed on the skin.
There are no visible scars after you’ve recovered from a rhinoplasty surgery. All sculpting and reshaping of bone and cartilage take place inside the nose. A small sponge is placed in the nose to prevent bleeding and can be removed 1-2 days after the surgery. The tape and nasal splint are removed on day seven. Mild to moderate bruising underneath the eye for 1-2 weeks may occur. Pain is well-controlled with pain medicine, which our doctors will prescribe for you.
Rhinoplasty patients may return to normal physical exercise after two weeks. However, contact sports should be avoided for six weeks following surgery. No hospital stay is required and patients can go home the same day of the surgery.
Rhinoplasty Atlanta FAQs
What is rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is a form of cosmetic surgery that’s used to reshape the nose. It can be used to alter the nose in several ways, including reshaping the tip of the nose, widening or narrowing the bridge of the nose and altering the size and shape of the nostrils.
Who can benefit from rhinoplasty?
If the appearance of your nose causes you to feel self-conscious, either because you feel it’s too long, too wide or too thin, then you can benefit from rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty is also used to help correct injuries that result in breathing problems.
Am I a good candidate?
A good candidate for rhinoplasty will be a person who has the right skin type and who has realistic expectations about what can be achieved with the surgery. Your surgeon will be able to determine if you’re a suitable candidate and also let you know what results you can expect to achieve.
How do I choose the right surgeon?
When looking for a surgeon to perform rhinoplasty you first want to be sure that they’re board-certified. This will guarantee a high standard of skill and care. Secondly you should look for a surgeon who has a great deal of experience performing rhinoplasty surgeries, and ideally who specializes in it. You should also be sure that you’re comfortable with them and feel like you can ask any questions without feeling silly.
What is the recovery like?
You’ll need to wear a cast on your nose for the first week after surgery. This will then be removed and the swelling will slowly subside over the following weeks. Usually after 2-3 weeks, the swelling will have subsided enough where people will not be able to tell you’ve had surgery. Some pain is to be expected in the days immediately following surgery although medication will be prescribed for this.
It takes approximately 3-4 months for the swelling to completely subside when you have rhinoplasty. After this time you’ll be able to appreciate the final results.
Will I need to take time off work?
Yes. It’s usually recommended that you take a couple of weeks off work so you’re able to recover properly and don’t have to worry about your nose being accidentally bumped or knocked, which could cause complications.
