Nose Surgery / Rhinoplasty

Enhancing Facial Harmony


Time to Shape Up Your Nose

Rhinoplasty involves changing the appearance of the nose. Reasons to have a rhinoplasty range from congenital deformity and trauma to simply being born with a nose that doesn’t quite fit the balance and symmetry of your face. Chin augmentation may be done in conjunction with rhinoplasty for a more global enhancement of one’s profile.

Rhinoplasty can address issues of a large nose, nasal hump, droopy tip, bulbous tip, large nostrils, traumatic defects, narrow nose, difficulty breathing, and irregularities or asymmetry.

What to Expect?

Rhinoplasty can involve sculpting of the nasal bones, repositioning and molding cartilage of the nasal tip. The width of the nose may be narrowed through skin incisions. Cartilage grafts may also be used to enhance the nose and ensure stability and function of the nose.

If incisions are made for rhinoplasty, they are strategically hidden in the shadows under the nose. When the nostrils are reduced in size, incisions are hidden in the creases around the nose so that they heal without a trace.

What are the side effects and downtime for a rhinoplasty?

It takes about two weeks to recover from a rhinoplasty. By this time, swelling and bruising have largely resolved to be socially presentable. Swelling persists long after surgery. On average, 80% resolves after one month. 90% resolves after 9 to 12 months. Complete resolution of swelling may take 1-2 years.
