With A Warm, Caring Staff and Stunningly Natural Results,
Our Approach to Surgery is Anything but Plastic
Rhinoplasty is a procedure that sculpts the nose, changing its shape and/or size. You may feel that your nose has a hump, is too big, is crooked, or just doesn’t fit your face. Even small changes in the nose can have a noticeable impact on your overall appearance. Our experienced surgeon will ask you how you would like your nose to look. They will then evaluate the structure of your nose and how it relates to the appearance of your face. Your nose is complex and composed of bone, cartilage, fat, and skin. Dr. Coan at CARE will show you which of these components can be changed or altered to reach your goal. We also perform facial morphing to better visualize what your final result may look like.
Individuals who may benefit from a rhinoplasty are those who are unhappy with the shape or size of their noses. Ideal candidates include those who are physically healthy and whose facial growth is complete. Most girls’ noses are developed around 14 years old, while boys’ noses are developed around 16 years old. To learn more regarding candidacy and if rhinoplasty is right for you, contact our office today to schedule a consultation.
There are two main types of rhinoplasty surgery techniques, including an open rhinoplasty and a closed rhinoplasty. During an open rhinoplasty, an incision will be created across the columella or the skin between the nostrils. During a closed rhinoplasty, all incisions will be created inside the nose. The technique that is right for you will be determined by your surgeon.
Rhinoplasty is performed through a hidden incision under the nose. The skin of the nose is rarely removed in the procedure. Changing the underlying bone and cartilage is all that is necessary to make the change in the outer appearance. With that said, each nose is unique and the amount of reshaping or removal of bone and cartilage requires the type of expertise found at CARE Plastic Surgery. Recovery after rhinoplasty requires a week off of work and school. There will likely be a splint over the nose for the first week and you may have bruising around the eyes and cheeks for 2 weeks. The nose will also be swollen at first but will improve over the ensuing weeks and months.
Rhinoplasty is usually performed as an outpatient procedure. Following surgery, bruising and swelling are to be expected for the first 1-2 weeks. Most patients can return to school or work after 1-2 weeks, and most other non-contact activities can be resumed after three weeks. Over time, as swelling continues to dissipate, the improvements to the nose will become more noticeable. Be sure to follow the aftercare instructions provided by your surgeon for the best outcomes.
