Whether you have a crooked nose, a nasal deformity due to injury, or are seeking to increase the proportionality of your nose to the rest of your face, if you’re looking for a plastic surgery procedure in Orlando, or considering a rhinoplasty in general, here are five common rhinoplasty questions and their answers.

What Is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that is typically performed on an outpatient basis. The procedure requires only local anesthetic and is performed with the intention of changing the shape of your nose. This can be to change either the functional or aesthetic aspects of the nose or both. A trained and certified doctor, such as Dr. Spence and Dr. Ovalle, will reshape your cartilage and bone, if need be, to help achieve the desired result and shape of your nose.

Is Every Rhinoplasty The Same Procedure?

No. Rhinoplasty is not a one-size-fits-all type of surgery. Due to each nose and each face being different, your doctor will need to hold a consultation and dialogue to understand your needs and the best course of action.

Why Is Rhinoplasty Done?

Rhinoplasty is typically done to address either functional or aesthetic issues to the nose.

Can I Get Rhinoplasty At Any Age?

Typically, no. If you are under the age of 18, you will need to wait until your nose is fully grown as nasal bones and cartilage continue to grow throughout puberty.

Is Rhinoplasty Painful?

No. The procedure is done under local anesthesia and, though you may experience discomfort due to swelling and inflammation after your procedure, pain is not expected. However, the recovery process should not be considered easy or be taken lightly. It is imperative to the integrity of your results that you carefully adhere to the guidelines for recovery as set forth by your doctor.
