Rhinoplasty Nose Reshaping

Your nose is the central feature of your face, and it can have a huge impact on the overall balance of your facial features. If your nose is too big, it could overwhelm your face. And, a bothersome bump on your bridge could affect your self-confidence. Luckily, even the subtlest changes to your nose can make significant improvements to the symmetry of your face. So, if you’re unhappy with the size or shape of your nose, you may be a great candidate for Rhinoplasty.


Rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as a “nose job,” is typically used to reshape the nose and enhance your overall appearance. However, it can also be used to address functional issues with the nose, including birth defects, injuries and breathing problems. At The South Florida Center for Cosmetic Surgery, our talented and experienced rhinoplasty surgeons can improve a variety of common concerns about the external appearance of the nose, as well as some concerns about anatomical configuration and internal function.

After rhinoplasty, our patients often experience a boost in confidence, and they’re much happier with their appearance. Results from surgery are also very natural, so you’ll look like a better version of yourself.

The Process

Consult

During your initial consultation, you’ll work with your surgeon to address your concerns and desired results. You’ll also undergo an extensive physical exam and blood tests before your surgeon takes photographs to aid in planning and performing your nose reshaping surgery. Finally, you’ll receive important instructions to prepare for treatment, as well as a realistic explanation of the results you can expect to achieve.

Procedure

Depending on your particular case, your rhinoplasty surgery will involve one of the following procedures:

  • Reducing the nasal bridge or building it up with a cartilage graft
  • Sculpting the tip of the nose
  • Refining the nostrils
  • Straining the septum or reducing oversized turbinates to address the appearance and breathing function of your nose.

In some cases, an implant or cartilage from another part of the body may also be added to obtain your nose’s final shape. However, since most rhinoplasty procedures are done inside the nose, there are virtually no visible incisions or scarring.

Recovery

At the end of your procedure, your surgeon will apply taping and a protective splint over your nose. These are generally left in place for seven days. Your nose may also be packed with light gauze for five days. However, the placement and removal of the packing are painless. Swelling and discoloration of the nose and bruising around the eyes is standard following nose shaping and should not alarm you. Reduction in swelling and bruising begins on the fourth or fifth day.

Post Surgery

You can resume moderately active sports such as swimming, tennis, and golf after three weeks. Sports involving body contact such as football, wrestling, etc. are prohibited for six weeks. Your surgeon will also give you specific instructions regarding rest, sleeping position, washing your face and hair, and breathing techniques.

“I did a rhinoplasty with Dr. Lakin after doing research and meeting with him. He is so sweet and professional and has a great approach and worth ethic. I was born with a deviated septum and it has bothered me for 28 years. My nose is now perfect, and I really could not be happier.”

We perform rhinoplasties on patients as young as 15 years old with parental consent. However, health is the primary consideration in determining the maximum age allowed for this procedure.

Typically, nose shaping incisions are made inside the nose, so there are no visible scars. Using specialized instruments, your surgeon cuts the nasal bones and moves and narrows them to reshape your nasal structure. Your surgeon can also shorten or raise the top of your nose by removing or adding cartilage. And, in some cases, they may use an implant to give a more flattering shape.

During your initial visit, expect to provide your complete medical history, including all your medications, allergies, and previous surgeries. You’ll also undergo an extensive physical exam and blood tests before your surgeon takes photographs to aid in planning and performing your rhinoplasty surgery. Finally, you’ll receive essential instructions to prepare for treatment as well as a realistic explanation of the results you can expect to achieve.

Your surgery time will vary, depending on the amount of shaping necessary. Most rhinoplasty surgeries take between 60 and 90 minutes to complete. However, work done to improve your breathing (septal) may add twenty minutes.

Yes. Rhinoplasty does not require a major recovery process. However, it is necessary that you have someone to pick you up after the procedure, take you home, and stay with you for at least 24 hours.

Most patients return to normal activities within seven days.
