Cosmetic nose surgery can alter imperfections that include:
- Disproportionate nose size
- Disproportionate nose or nostril width
- Bumps or depressions on the bridge of the nose
- Misshapen nasal tip
- Deviated septum
Dr. Smith will work closely with you to develop a custom treatment plan that suits your individual facial characteristics and meets your aesthetic desires.
Nose Surgery Candidates
Viable rhinoplasty candidates are nonsmokers who are in good general health and whose facial development is complete.
Patients should have a positive outlook about the procedure, as well as realistic expectations for its results. Dr. Smith will discuss the procedure’s advantages and limitations with you in detail during your consultation.
The Rhinoplasty Procedure
Each rhinoplasty treatment is different based on the patient’s facial features and cosmetic goals, but there are some basic similarities among most cosmetic nose surgeries. Tiny incisions are used to raise nasal tissue and access the underlying bones and cartilage.
The bone structure, cartilage and skin tissue are then reshaped to achieve appropriate form and symmetry. The exterior tissue is then repositioned, and the incisions are closed.
Rhinoplasty Recovery and Results
Most rhinoplasty patients are able to resume work and day-to-day activities within a week of surgery. Some swelling may linger for a few weeks as you recover, but the initial results will be noticeable soon after surgery.
In the months that follow your rhinoplasty, your nose will continue to subtly refine its appearance as it heals. Dr. Smith will review your recovery guidelines with you in detail prior to your surgery, and the team at Smith Cosmetic Surgery will remain with you throughout your recovery process.
