The Purpose of Rhinoplasty Surgery
Also known as rhinoplasty, surgery of the nose improves the appearance and proportion of your nose, enhancing facial harmony and self-confidence. Surgery of the nose may also correct impaired breathing caused by structural defects in the nose.
Tallahassee rhinoplasty can change:
- Nose size, in relation to facial balance
- Nose width, at the bridge or in the size and position of the nostrils
- Nose profile, with visible humps or depressions on the bridge
- Nasal tip, that is enlarged or bulbous, drooping, upturned or hooked
- Nostrils that are large, wide or upturned
- Nasal asymmetry
What Happens During Rhinoplasty Surgery?
At the start of nose surgery, anesthesia is administered. Incisions hidden at the nostril base and/or inside the nose allow access to reshape underlying cartilage and/or bone. This may include lowering humps, narrowing of nasal bones, shaping of the nasal tip or nostril size and improving the angle between the nose and the upper lip. Once the procedure is complete, incisions are closed using sutures.
Rhinoplasty Recovery and Healing
The recovery process after a nose job involves a degree of temporary swelling and bruising. Keeping one’s head elevated during this time is recommended. Patients will need to take time off from work and must avoid physically strenuous activities for several weeks.
Tallahassee rhinoplasty patients should see a change within 6-8 weeks following surgery, with continued refinement for 6-12 months. Cartilage is a flexible and growing tissue, therefore results following nose reshaping surgery can vary depending on the patient.
How Much Does Rhinoplasty Cost?
Nasal surgery varies in cost depending on the specific details of each case. Factors that affect the overall price of a rhinoplasty procedure include the techniques utilized, the time needed to perform the surgery, and the type of anesthesia administered. When rhinoplasty is performed for functional reasons like resolving breathing obstructions, its cost is often covered by health insurance providers.
