About Rhinoplasty Surgery
Cosmetic nose surgery (rhinoplasty) is an aesthetic procedure that is used to improve the look of the nose. In addition, rhinoplasty also helps correct functionality in some patients. Our plastic surgeons, Dr. David G. Genecov, Dr. Carlos Raul Barceló and Dr. Huay-Zong Law, are seasoned cosmetic professionals who offer rhinoplasty with a conservative approach to produce the most beautiful and natural-looking outcomes possible. Even though rhinoplasty produces subtle changes, results are usually quite beautiful. Rhinoplasty at Genecov Plastic Surgery Group is used to make a nose look smaller or alter a nose that is too large or wide. The goal is to produce a more aesthetically pleasing nose that meets the cosmetic goals and functions as it should.
Both women and men are great candidates for rhinoplasty. If you're displeased with the overall look of your nose and have specific concerns you wish to enhance or repair, this surgery may be the ideal approach. It is important that realistic expectations are noted as your appearance will be changed. In addition, facial maturity should also be complete. This factor will be discussed during your consultation.
Cosmetic nose surgery is performed with the patient under IV sedation or general anesthesia and is considered an outpatient surgical procedure. Rhinoplasty has varying surgical techniques depending on your concerns and problems. We perform nose surgery with either a closed approach or an open method. The goal during surgery is to remove excess tissue and cartilage if there is too much present, or to improve and add cartilage if it's needed for reshaping. The nose is repositioned while the skin is reformed and draped over the newly enhanced framework. Sutures are placed either inside the nose or in a natural external crease.
What to Expect
After nose surgery, patients will be monitored closely in the recovery area and then released to heal at home. The area around the nose will be very swollen and bruised for a week or so. In most cases, there is bruising under the eyes as well. Cold compression and prescription medication can help with these effects. Your post-operative appointment will take place within the first several days after surgery in order for us to assess the healing process. On average, it takes about 2 – 4 weeks to heal from rhinoplasty. During the process, strenuous activity or exercise should be avoided. Rhinoplasty surgery produces beautiful outcomes, but it also needs a very skilled degree of surgical experience and visual artistry to create the appropriate shape. We recommend that you do your diligence and provide a detailed account of concerns and goals during the initial meeting.
