Rhinoplasty, In Depth

In recent years, rhinoplasty has become one of the most popular facial plastic surgical procedures. Many people are unhappy with the nose they were born with, while others have had the shape of the nose distorted from an injury. Disorders of nasal breathing and sinusitis often complicate the situation. A range of techniques are used to fully address the desired change in appearance as well as to improve nasal breathing and correct chronic sinus infections. Sinus surgery, if indicated, is done with endoscopes to avoid any visible incisions.

Usually, the goal of rhinoplasty is to achieve better harmony between other facial features and the the nose. Rhinoplasty surgery does this by improving the size and shape of the nose. Specially, rhinoplasty can change the shape of the nasal tip, remove a hump, and straighten the nose. The size and shape of the nostrils can be changed. Rhinoplasty may be performed under general or sedation anesthesia on an outpatient basis. Most health insurance plans still provide some coverage for functional nasal surgery and sinus surgery.

Rhinoplasty Questions & Answers

How long is Rhinoplasty recovery time?

"80% of your swelling will be gone in 2 week, and 90% at 2 months." Downtime 1. For the first week we have patients wear a protective nose splint. Early removal of the split increases the risk of the nose not setting correctly, or may damage the delicate healing tissues. 2. For the first 2 weeks the casual observer, and family and friends, will be able tell you had nose surgery. 3. Bruising is usually resolved within 2 week, but varies by the patient bleeding tendency. We recommend Arnica gel. Complete Recovery Complete resolution of all the swelling can take up to 1 year (most of which is gone in 2 months). We follow up with patients until the healing is complete and patients have their final nose.

What does a Rhinoplasty procedure cost?

Prices for Rhinoplasty can range from $10,000 to $35,000 depending on: * The type of rhinoplasty (primary or revision) - since revision rhinoplasties are more difficult they tend to cost more than primary surgeries * The experience of the surgeon * The location of the surgical facility where procedure is performed * What work needs to be done on the nose - especially whether grafts (rib cartilage) need to be used. Functional components (septum, sinuses etc) may be covered, depending on the patient's insurance. As you decide to continue with Rhinoplasty keep 3 things in mind: this is your face, so you should never compromise on quality! Will the surgeon have expertise and proven record of making perfect noses? Finally, do you have any issues with breathing or sinuses? Having a great looking nose that doesn't function properly makes no sense.

How can an upturned nose be corrected?

Depending on the patient, this may be best addressed by trimming a portion of the columella to decrease the columellar show and adding cartilage in order to weight down the tip and rotate the tip downwards.
