Rhinoplasty / Nose Reshaping

Rhinoplasty or surgery of the nose improves the appearance and proportion of your nose, enhancing facial harmony. Although heredity plays a large role in the shape of your nose, for some the appearance has been altered by injury or during prior surgery. Surgery of the nose may also be done to correct impaired breathing caused by structural abnormalities. Nose surgery can be done to change the nose size, width, or profile. It may also be done to change nostril size, width or upturn. For some the nasal tip may be too large, may droop or have an upturn. Nose surgery can also correct nasal asymmetry and deviation.

Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT ARE THE POTENTIAL RISKS OF RHINOPLASTY (NOSE) SURGERY?

All surgery carries some uncertainty and risk. Post-operative complications such as infection and blood clots are rare, but can occur. You can minimize the risk of blood clots by moving around after the surgery as soon as possible.  Other risks include rupture of the small surface vessels of the nose, nose asymmetry, and nasal septal perforation. Smokers are instructed to stop for several weeks both before and after surgery due to the risk of complications and delayed healing. You can reduce your risk of complications by closely following your surgeon’s instructions before and after the surgery, especially with regard to when and how you should resume physical activity.  These and additional rare but possible complications will be discussed at your pre-operative appointment and will be detailed in your consent form.

HOW IS RHINOPLASTY (NOSE) SURGERY DONE?

First your plastic surgeon will meet with you and spend some time marking the areas to be changed using a skin marking pen.  Next medications will be administered for your comfort during the surgery.  Your anesthesiologist or certified nurse anesthetist will begin your general anesthesia.  The surgery may be performed using a closed procedure, where the incisions are hidden inside the nose, or an open procedure, where the incision is made across the columella, the narrow strip of tissue that separates the nostrils.  Through the incisions, the soft tissues that cover the nose are gently raised, allowing access to reshape the structure of the nose.

If applicable, cartilage grafted from other areas of your body may be used to augment nasal structures.  If the septum is deviated, it is now straightened and the projections inside the nose are reduced to improve breathing. Once the underlying structure of the nose is sculpted to the desired shape, nasal skin and tissue is rewrapped and the incisions are closed.  Splints and internal tubes will likely support the nose at is heals for approximately one week.

WHERE WILL MY RHINOPLASTY (NOSE SURGERY) BE DONE?

At Mesos Plastic Surgery and Laser Center we have an accredited AAAASF surgical facility.  Your procedure will be performed in a fully equipped OR suite where every measure has been taken ensure the highest quality of patient care and safety.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SEE MY FINAL RESULTS FROM RHINOPLASTY (NOSE SURGERY)?

It may take weeks for initial swelling to subside and up to one year for your new nasal contour to fully refine.   You will notice gradual changes in the appearance of your nose as it heals.

  • “I recently went to Mesos to have a laser peel done.  The staff did a wonderful job at explaining what was going to happen before , during and after the procedure.  This was an important component as I work full time.   I especially appreciated that they are very honest and realistic about results you can achieve from their services.  I felt that they under promised and over delivered!  I wanted to write this so that if someone out there needs reassurance like I did, that you will be very happy the day you see your ” before” and “after” pictures.”

  • “…very truthful and informative. He let me know what to expect so there were no surprises. He explained to me the worst case scenarios (including possible remedies) and he explained best case scenarios. My results thus far have exceeded what I had imagined. He was personable, professional and his staff really put me at ease. Follow-up appointments were relaxed and he gave me a chance to talk and ask questions. I also felt that he and his nurses listened to me and addressed anything I did not understand. I would highly recommend him.”
