"Broken and Collapsed Nose in an Accident. Houston, TX - I highly recommend Dr. Brissett!!! I broke my nose while dancing and getting ready for a show. I lost a lot of blood and the whole experience was overwhelming. I am 30 years old and I have never been hurt or been to the ER. It all changed on my 30th birthday when I had the accident. My friend accidentally hit me with the back of his arm and broke it. I was recommended to Dr. Brissett from the ER I went to. I called his office the next day so he can check my nose and make sure all was ok. He saw me the next day. He wanted to make sure I didn't have any damage inside my nose that needed to me fixed right away before it was too late. My nose was real swollen and the break was clean so he said it looks like I will not need surgery but to still come back in about a week. His friendly staff set the appointment. I had trouble breathing through my right nostril after the swelling went down. I mentioned it to him when I went back and he checked and I received the news that I needed surgery to lift up the inside of my nose because it caved in and blocked my airway. I was kind of upset because I had to be put to sleep to have this done and I was mainly terrified lol. I went through with the surgery. I felt like I was in good hands. The day I came home from surgery my mom dropped off my prescription and Walgreens said they never got the antibiotic prescription. This is the one I really needed. I called the number the hospital gave me incase I needed anything and they called Dr. Brissett. He called me back within 30 minutes and called my pharmacy and put in the prescription for me and let me know that he called it in. This was a plus for me too. He cares about his patients. He took time and make sure I got the antibiotics that I needed. I had to wear a cast for a week and i got it off today. I feel like a new person. My nose looks great!! It was uneven from the side of it being caved in and now it looks normal. I will go back in a month to take pictures and see the before and after pictures, and he will make sure my nose is looking good. :)I recommended him already to lots of people and I recommend him to you all."- Y. / RealSelf / Oct 13, 2014

"Very nice manner. He will not suggest procedures that are unnecessary. He probably could have talked me into a procedure for my nose. He suggested I leave it the way it is. I am happy with that decision. For me, he's a smart, talented physician. I am lucky to have access to a doctor of his caliber."- Anonymous / Vitals / Nov 14, 2012
What to Expect
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.
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.
