Helping Achieve a Nose that Fits
Nose surgery involves reshaping tissue and cartilage to balance nose shape and size with your other facial features. There are certain characteristics and qualities that beautiful noses have in common. Some are best suited for women while others are better for men. Together with a skilled eye and artistic touch, our plastic surgeons can guide you in deciding which characteristic is balanced to your facial proportions.
Should You Consider Rhinoplasty?
A variety of conditions can be addressed during nose surgery to produce a satisfying result:
- Large nose
- Crooked nose
- Hook nose
- Nasal hump
- Bulbous tip
- Wide nostrils
Dr. Boschert, Dr. Craig, and Dr. Mills can also change the shape and proportions of your nose with dermal fillers, as well. Renaissance is helping reshape facial contours for balance and proportion for many patients. Call today for more information or to schedule a consultation for your nose surgery procedure.
Your Rhinoplasty Surgery
For your surgery, the incision will typically be made within your nostrils to avoid any unsightly scarring once you are healed. The skin is carefully pealed back to reveal the internal nasal structure. Your surgeon will then surgically reshape the bone and cartilage of your nose to achieve your desired shape and size. Once the incisions are closed, a splint will be placed to ensure that your nose maintains its new form.
Any swelling and bruising will continue to fade over time. You may not be able to realize the results of your surgery right away, but don’t let that discourage you. Healing from rhinoplasty is a process, but within a week or two, you will begin to notice the changes. Once the nose has fully healed, many patients are thrilled with their results and often find themselves to be more self-confident and comfortable with their appearance.
