A nose which doesn't fit the face whether caused by birth, accident or disease.
A nose which if adjusted slightly would enhance overall facial appearance and proportion.
A breathing problem due to internal nasal deformity.
Computer imaging facilitates patient/doctor communication
regarding individualized surgery goals.
For cosmetic reasons, incisions are generally made inside the nose. Occasionally small external incisions are required.
Through the incisions cartilage and/or bone are cut, trimmed and manipulated to reshape the nose and alter its external appearance.
If surgery is for a breathing problem, the same general technique is used to straighten the septum.
Sometimes a chin enlargement will be offered in conjunction with a rhinoplasty to improve the profile.
With significant structural work on the nose, the patient goes home wearing a splint holding the bone and cartilage in their new shape. A light nasal pack may also be applied to protect the septum. Inside packing would be removed within 24 to 48 hours, the outer splint within a week.
There is minimal postoperative discomfort, easily controlled by medication.
Most swelling and discoloration will subside quickly over two weeks.
A more natural looking nose in proper proportion to all other facialfeatures.
Improved breathing, with reconstructive nose surgery.
