Rhinoplasty, or nose reshaping surgery, can improve the shape and proportion of your nose. It can also correct breathing problems caused by structural defects in the nose. Rhinoplasty can be performed on an outpatient basis at our ambulatory surgery center or hospital. Most patients are able to return home the same day as their procedure. However, you will need someone to drive you and stay with you the first night.

Rhinosplasties can be complicated to perform and require the right surgeon with a good understanding of nasal anatomy, function, and aesthetics. An inexperienced surgeon may produce unfavorable cosmetic or functional results, and complications are not uncommon. The surgeon must respect the critical structures of the nose and use a surgical technique that does not compromise them in order to obtain high patient satisfaction rates.

After rhinoplasty, you will have some swelling. This will reduce over time. However, it can take 12 to 15 months before you can see the full results of your procedure.

Before your rhinoplasty, discuss the desired changes you would like to make with your surgeon. He or she will explain how your nose can be changed, and what the limitations are. You should also consider the effects your changes will have on other facial features such as the eyes, chin, or cheeks. You can ask to view computerized images of your face that will show you what the surgery will look like before you decide to go ahead with it. nose reshaping
