Few other plastic surgery operations have the impact and benefit of rhinoplasty, sometimes referred to as a “nose job” by patients. Rhinoplasty is an excellent solution for a range of nasal issues, from cosmetic, to functional, to reconstructive. Sometimes a rhinoplasty is combined with a chin implant for facial symmetry. However, the benefits of nasal surgery are more than skin deep. A nose that is overly large, lacks balance, is crooked, or has some other prominent aesthetic issue can influence the look of the face negatively and trigger low self-esteem and confidence, particularly in young people.
Patients don’t want to look like they had a nose job. The small, pinched nose has been replaced with a more natural one that is subtly different than their existing one. Patients don’t want to look different, just better.
Advanced techniques have made rhinoplasty a very safe, short recovery operation. Our patients recover quickly, often within a week. Most patients can resume normal activities after 7 days with minimal bruising and pain. Full results are visible within 6 to 12 months.
