What is a Rhinoplasty?
A rhinoplasty or nose job refers to any procedure that alters the shape of the nose. It may be performed to correct damage due to injury or purely for cosmetic reasons.
Benefits of Rhinoplasty
Many people desire a rhinoplasty because they are unhappy with the way their noses look.Many of those patients can obtain relief by undergoing a nose job performed by Dr. Ryan Flannagan, a board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience in rhinoplasty surgery.
Is Rhinoplasty Right for Me?
Only you can determine if rhinoplasty is right for you. You might desire rhinoplasty if you are highly self-conscious about your nose and avoid certain social situations because of it.
Elements of a Rhinoplasty
A nose job is one of the most tailored procedures we provide. As such, your rhinoplasty surgery could include one or all of the following elements:
- General anesthesia to produce a light sleep
- Trimming off excess cartilage
- Repositioning bone
- Altering the size or position of the nostrils
- Nasal splints and bandages
How Long is the Recovery After a Rhinoplasty?
It could take weeks or even months for you to fully recover from a nose job, depending upon the degree of alteration performed. In general, patients can resume social activities in one to two weeks. Periodic evaluations in our office are required during the recovery period in order to gauge your progress. You should avoid contact sports until after you are fully released by Dr. Flannagan.
