Rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as a “nose job,” is one of the most popular plastic surgeries, with countless procedures performed throughout the United States every year. Reshaping the nose can eliminate breathing difficulties while improving proportion and aesthetics, so patients feel more comfortable and confident with their appearance.

What is a Rhinoplasty?

Also known as a nose job, rhinoplasty is surgery that alters the shape of the nose to enhance it’s aesthetic, improve breathing, or both.

The lower portion of the nose is cartilage, while the upper part of the structure is bone. Rhinoplasty can alter cartilage, bone skin, or all three, depending on the patient’s goals. 

When planning your rhinoplasty procedure, your surgeon will consider your other unique facial features, along with the skin on your nose and your expressed goals. If you’re a good candidate for surgery, our skilled, compassionate team will develop a customized plan just for you.  

Planning for your procedure often includes using our video imager to visualize goals for your surgery. This educational and communication tool helps define your concerns while seeing the anticipated results of rhinoplasty surgery.  

Reasons for Getting a Rhinoplasty

Patients may seek rhinoplasty for several good reasons, including: 

  • They have an asymmetrical nose.
  • They feel their nose is too small or too large for their face.
  • Their nose has an oddly-shaped tip or appears too wide.
  • They have a nose with a humped or crooked ridge. 
  • They experience breathing complications.

Nose surgery intended to improve obstructed airways involves careful evaluation of the nasal structure related to breathing and airflow. Correcting a deviated septum, one of the most typical causes of breathing impairment, is performed by adjusting the nasal structure to create better alignment.

Am I a Good Candidate?

Good candidates for rhinoplasty have imperfections, injuries, or natural issues that lead to breathing difficulties or aesthetic concerns. They should also have reasonable expectations and a clear understanding of their hope to achieve through cosmetic surgery. 

You will need to be in good general health and tolerate anesthesia. You will also need to have the ability to abstain from drinking and smoking during the period surrounding your procedure. You must also be old enough for your facial growth to be complete.

Procedure

Types of Rhinoplasty

There are two basic types of rhinoplasty: 

Open rhinoplasty

An incision across the skin that separates the nostrils, known as the columella, is used with an open procedure. The skin is then lifted from the underlying tissue to provide a clear view of the anatomy of the nasal cartilages. This is performed for any significant reshaping of the nose.

Closed rhinoplasty

This procedure lifts the skin from the nasal cartilage and bone after incisions are made inside the nose. There is no external scar. The bone and cartilage can then be removed, rearranged, or reshaped, depending on your individual goals and your surgeon’s recommendation. A closed procedure is typically done for minor reshaping of the nose.

Rhinoplasty is typically an outpatient procedure using intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. After waking from anesthesia, patients usually feel groggy and sore. You will need to arrange for someone to drive you to and from surgery and remain with you for at least the first night following your procedure.

Types of Rhinoplasty

Open 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.

Closed rhinoplasty

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.

Rhinoplasty Recovery

A rhinoplasty can lead to an improved and more balanced facial appearance. While some improvements will be seen relatively quickly, you may not see the complete and final results for up to a year.

Your nose will be swollen immediately following surgery, and you will possibly have stitches removed a few days after your procedure. The external cast to protect the nose can be removed a week following your rhinoplasty. The majority of swelling resolves within two weeks, as it will quickly decrease. 

It takes a full year before healing is complete, but subtle changes and improvements will continue during this time.
