Rhinoplasty (Cosmetic and Reconstructive)

Rhinoplasty, or a nose job, involves the surgical reshaping of nasal cartilage and bone.  Reasons to have a rhinoplasty range from cosmetic – to improve or change the appearance of the nose for personal gain or preference, to medical – for difficulty breathing and severe deformity following nasal trauma, or congenital development of the nose that affects nasal breathing.  When breathing is compromised, the septum or divider of the nose is often crooked.

Septorhinoplasty

Septorhinoplasty involves the combined correction of both the external and internal parts of the nose.  Some insurances cover these procedures should it involve a medical issue listed above.

Rhinoplasty is uniquely tailored to each individual’s nasal anatomy, facial structure, skin type and health.  Healing from “open” nasal surgeries such as a septorhinoplasty can be a slow process.  Most people can return to work after 10-14 days.  Swelling decreases 80% on average by three months.  90% of the swelling typically resolves by 9 months.  It may take up to 12 – 24 months for all of the swelling to resolve from the nose after rhinoplasty
