Rhinoplasty / Nose Surgery:
Surgery of the nose, also known as Rhinoplasty improves the appearance and proportion of your nose, enhancing facial harmony and self-confidence. Rhinoplasty can change the nose size, width, tip, and profile and address asymmetry. Large nostrils are surgically reduced to improve both aesthetic contour and shape.
Surgery of the nose is performed either using a closed procedure, where incisions are hidden inside the nose, or an open procedure, where an incision is made across the columella (the narrow strip of tissue that separates the nostrils). Through these incisions, contouring of the nose can be performed. Once the underlying structure of the nose is sculpted to the desired shape, nasal skin and tissue is redraped and incisions are closed. You may have nasal packing that is removed on the third postoperative day.
Your results may in some cases be immediately noticeable, however you will see more of a change in 6-8 weeks following surgery, with continued refinement for 6-12 months. Cartilage is a flexible and growing tissue and some results are not fully predictable.
