Rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as a “nose job,” is one of the most popular plastic surgical procedures performed every year. Reshaping the nose occurs for a variety of reasons.
You may be a good candidate for rhinoplasty if you have
A nose that is too large or too small
A nose that is too wide
A nose that is asymmetrical
A nose with an oddly shaped tip
A nose with a crooked or humped bridge
Types of Rhinoplasty
Incisions are made in the columella, the vertical strip of skin separating the nostrils. The skin and tissue are then lifted from the underlying structure so Dr. Broadway can see the anatomy of the nasal area. This is done for any major reshaping of the nose.
The skin is separated from the bone and cartilage after incisions are made inside the nose. The cartilage and bone can then be removed, reshaped, or rearranged, depending on your ultimate goals and Dr. Broadway’s decision. This is done for any minor reshaping of the nose.
A rhinoplasty can lead to an improved and different looking face. This can be exciting, but recovery will take time. While some improvements are seen fairly quickly, you may not see the complete and final results for a year.
Your nose will be swollen immediately following surgery, but you will likely have stitches removed a few days after your procedure. The external cast used to protect the nose can be removed a week following your rhinoplasty. The majority of swelling can last two weeks, but it will quickly decrease. It takes a full year before healing is complete as subtle changes and improvements will be seen during this time.
