Rhinoplasty (Nose Job Surgery)
Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures for men and women. Commonly referred to as a nose job, this nose surgical procedure can correct nasal birth defects and injury. This can help you breathe better and feel more confident about your appearance.
How Rhinoplasty Works
There are a variety of techniques that may be used during rhinoplasty surgery, depending on what needs to be corrected. The procedure is performed under local or general anesthesia by a board certified plastic surgeon in about two hours. During the surgery, cartilage may be removed or added to reshape the nose. In some cases, a bone graft or implant is used.
A plastic or metal splint may be placed within or on the outside of your nose after surgery to provide support during recovery. Some swelling and bruising are to be expected. This discomfort can be eased using over-the-counter pain medication and ice packs. You should be able to resume normal activities in a week. A nose job can be combined with other cosmetic procedures to enhance your appearance.
Ideal Rhinoplasty Candidates
Individuals seeking rhinoplasty should be non-smokers in good physical condition. Smoking and underlying medical conditions increase the risk for complications to develop. A consultation with a board certified surgeon will help you understand the procedure and risks in-depth to help determine if it is right for you.
