Rhinoplasty: The Procedure

Rhinoplasty is a type of nose surgery intended to improve the external appearance of the nose. This procedure requires the expertise of a surgeon who specializes in plastic surgery of the face.

Prevalent nose issues that can be improved with rhinoplasty include crooked nose, traumatic nasal deformity, dorsal hump, bulbous tip, nostril asymmetry, nasal obstruction, and nasal valve collapse. At Rejuvenation Medical Aesthetics, we strive to deliver the best rhinoplasty Newtown has to offer. The doctor is regarded by her peers and patients as a rhinoplasty specialist, as she has dedicated fellowship training in rhinoplasty and a genuine commitment to evolving her surgical approach and creating beautiful noses. Each rhinoplasty surgery is uniquely designed and performed according to the anatomy and treatment goals of the individual patient.

What To Expect After Rhinoplasty

Each rhinoplasty procedure is different. Therefore, the extent of swelling, bruising, and tenderness experienced following surgery will vary by patient. At the conclusion of surgery, a protective outer nasal splint cast is placed over the operated nose. Every one of our Newtown rhinoplasty patients will follow-up with the doctor one week following surgery to remove this splint and any external sutures. Bruising and swelling after surgery is typically managed well with icing and head elevation with the majority subsiding by two weeks out from surgery. Residual nasal swelling will continue to improve over the next six months to one year. Nasal pain after surgery is usually controlled well with prescribed pain medication. We maintain close follow-up with every rhinoplasty patient to ensure that each patient heals well and is satisfied with their results.

Risks Associated With Rhinoplasty

Possible risks associated with rhinoplasty surgery include but are not limited to the following: bleeding, infection, pain, swelling, damage to surrounding structures, poor scarring, nasal obstruction, prolonged stiffness or numbness, unsatisfactory result, and need for additional surgery. During each consultation and pre-operative visit, the doctor dedicates the necessary time and effort to review the associated risks with the procedure and to address all patient questions and concerns.

Septorhinoplasty

Septorhinoplasty is one type of nose surgery that addresses both the outer appearance of the nose and the septum. A patient with a septum problem such as a deviated septum or a septal perforation may qualify for a septorhinoplasty to improve nasal breathing function. The functional portion of the surgery may be eligible to be covered by medical insurance. The doctor possesses specialized training in both rhinoplasty and septorhinoplasty and will determine which type of nasal surgery is best meets the patient's treatment goals.

Ethnic Rhinoplasty

Patients of non-Caucasian ethnicity often desire rhinoplasty to help alter particular aspects of their nose while still maintaining facial features that are natural and consistent with their ethnicity. Common ethnic nose issues that can be improved with rhinoplasty include but are not limited to over projected nose, dorsal hump, flat nasal bridge, and bulbous tip. As a rhinoplasty specialist, the doctor has unique training in ethnic rhinoplasty and has operated on patients of various ethnicities including patients of Asian and African descent.

Revision Rhinoplasty

Revision rhinoplasty is a type of procedure performed on patients with history of one or more previous rhinoplasty surgeries.

A patient may qualify for a revision rhinoplasty if they demonstrate a persistent or new nasal deformity or nasal breathing issue from their previous rhinoplasty. Revision rhinoplasty is usually an even more difficult procedure compared to primary rhinoplasty, and revision rhinoplasty patients are at higher probability of needing additional future nasal procedures. The doctor has extensive training in revision rhinoplasty including experience with ear and rib cartilage grafts to create natural, durable noses that are both look aesthetically pleasing and breathe well for the long term.
