What to Expect during RHINOPLASTY
Open rhinoplasty, or external rhinoplasty, involves the plastic surgeon making a small incision on the underside of the nose between the nostrils to give the surgeon better access to the lower and middle parts of the nose. The surgeon can then manipulate tissue, skin, and bone as needed. In addition, the placement of the incisions allows for minimal scarring. Open rhinoplasty is used for more complex nose surgeries.
With closed rhinoplasty, or endonasal rhinoplasty, incisions are made inside of the nostrils. This technique is usually used for less complex surgeries, such as when the nose already has a good shape and isn’t considered too wide or too long. Due to the placement of the incisions, there will be no visible scarring.
Many people of various ethnic backgrounds wish to enhance and transform their nose without losing aspects of their heritage. If this is the case, then ethnic rhinoplasty is the way to satisfy these complementary goals. Using proven skill and experience, double-board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Anthony E. Brissett, has the extra level of finesse that is required when making a patient’s aesthetic dreams become a reality.
Upset With Prior Rhinoplasty?
The overall goal of a rhinoplasty procedure is to provide a natural, aesthetically appealing nose that functions well. Due to a number of factors, a patient’s rhinoplasty (nose surgery) may not live up to his or her expectations. With the highly technical surgery, Houston, TX double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Anthony E. Brissett, can perform a revision rhinoplasty in order to correct a previous procedure.
who is a Candidate for RHINOPLASTY?
Is rhinoplasty safe?
All surgical procedures, including rhinoplasty and nose reshaping surgery, come with some risks. These risks can be minimized if you follow our guidelines for preparation and recovery. Rest assured that Dr. Brissett routinely performs rhinoplasty with excellent outcomes.
Do you need to break my nose?
In some cases, breaking the nose is necessary to reshape the cartilage and bone. Our team at Brissett Plastic Surgery can let you know if this is necessary during your initial consultation. Any broken bones will be reattached and reshaped for a more pleasing appearance and better function.
Should I get a surgical or nonsurgical rhinoplasty?
Nonsurgical rhinoplasty is a safe way to achieve subtle changes in your nasal profile. While this procedure involves cosmetic injectables and requires no incisions, the results are temporary and will need to be redone once or several times a year to maintain your appearance.
how long is recovery from RHINOPLASTY?
After surgery, a patient’s nose can be stabilized with splints made of soft material. A follow-up appointment will be scheduled for the next day where the splints will be removed and external dressings will be placed on the nose, which will remain for about 2 days. Patients should expect some pain, discomfort, bruising, and swelling after surgery that should fully subside within a few weeks. The nose will reposition and evolve into its surgically enhanced shape for months after surgery. The finished product should be fully realized within a year with a beautifully shaped, positioned, and proportionate nose.
