Rhinoplasty (nose job) is an operation to improve the shape and size of the nose so that it is in harmony with the rest of the face. Rhinoplasty is essentially a surgical sculpting of the nose and is accomplished by careful contouring of the bone and cartilage giving the nose its shape. At the same time deformities that cause breathing problems and some sinus disorders can be corrected. Most incisions (seamless rhinoplasty) are placed inside the nose where they are least visible.
The use of seamless nose surgery allows for no visible external scars
Rhinoplasty is performed under sedation with local anesthesia. The surgery takes approximately one and one-half to two hours. The use of “seamless” nose surgery allows for no visible external scars and with this type of seamless nose surgery discomfort is minimized because no plates, tubes or painful packaging are used.
Rhinoplasty is often an enhancement to facial rejuvenation, particularly in the correction of the aging nose (drooping of the tip). A significant “combo” effect is seen with facial augmentation in conjunction with cosmetic nasal surgery.
In most instances, change in appearance can be seen immediately.
