What is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty can refer to any number of cosmetic procedures used to enhance facial symmetry and harmony or services to improve breathing through repaired structural defects. These procedures may be recommended to reshape or resize the nose or improve the airway and correct deviated septum.
Who Should Consider Rhinoplasty?
Patients may want to receive rhinoplasty for a number of reasons, including;
- Changing nose size to more proportionally balance other facial features
- Changing the width of the nose at the bridge or the with between nostrils
- Removing lumps or bumps to create a smooth nasal profile
- Reshaping a large, hooked, upturned, or bulbous nose tip
- Correcting asymmetrical nasal shape
- Changing the size or shape of nostrils
- Opening the airway
- Correcting deviated septum
How is Rhinoplasty Performed?
The performance of rhinoplasty depends in large part on the reason for your service. Our team always tries to perform treatments that can be completed with incisions inside the nasal passage to avoid scaring. If we need to make incisions and provide stitches on the outside of the nose, we will do so in the least noticeable areas. Treatments are typically outpatient procedures. That means you’ll be able to receive your rhinoplasty procedure and head home on the same day.
Why Should I Visit an Oral Surgery for Rhinoplasty?
Oral surgeons have advanced training that allows them to offer surgical treatment that involves any aspect of oral and facial structures. The Altitude Oral Maxillofacial Implant Center team is happy to provide both cosmetic and corrective rhinoplasty services.
What Should I Expect During the Recovery Process?
Every patient heals differently, so your recovery will take more or less time depending on your unique situation. Most patients feel significantly better after a few days. Noticeable swelling and inflammation is typically gone with 48 to 72 hours after your rhinoplasty procedure. If you experience severe pain or discomfort and swelling for more than a few days after your procedure, please contact one of our four office locations. We will assess the situation with you over the phone and walk you through first aid and pain management. When necessary, we can typically accommodate same day urgent visits for patients in need of emergency care.
