What Are The Benefits of a Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty has several specific goals. Some facilitate breathing as well as improve facial appearance. During a rhinoplasty, Dr. Spence may make your appearance more pleasing to you by:
- Removing a hump on your nose
- Modifying the bridge of your nose
- Reshaping the tip of your nose
- Reshaping or resizing your nostrils
- Repairing your nose after an injury
- Increasing or decreasing the size of your nose
To keep you comfortable throughout the procedure, Dr. Spence performs rhinoplasty under either general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. Depending on your individual treatment plan, he performs either an "open" rhinoplasty, which involves an incision made along the columella (the area between the nostrils), or a "closed" rhinoplasty, which places all incisions inside the nostrils.
After he makes the incision, he reshapes or removes bone, cartilage, and tissue meticulously. If needed, he performs any additional surgery to correct breathing problems, such as in the case of a deviated nasal septum. Dr. Spence then closes the incisions carefully, to minimize any scarring.
What is Revision Rhinoplasty?
Revision, or secondary, rhinoplasty corrects deformities caused by a previous operation on the nose. It is a more difficult procedure to perform than primary rhinoplasty because there is less cartilage to work with and there may be scarring or tissue contracture. When performed by a highly-skilled plastic surgeon such as Dr. Spence, however, a revision rhinoplasty can improve both the appearance and the function of the nose.
Before & After Rhinoplasty
Recovery & Results after Rhinoplasty
Most patients wear a splint or bandage on their noses to protect the area. Any bruising or swelling usually is minimal and subsides within a few days. Most of Dr. Spence's patients return to work in about 1 week and can even return to their regular exercise routines in about 3 weeks.
The complete benefits of rhinoplasty surgery may take several months to be apparent. After their recovery, Dr. Spence's patients often say that they are delighted with their enhanced noses. In addition to a more flattering nose shape and size, the features of their faces are better proportioned and attractive.
