One of the most common of all cosmetic procedures is nose surgery also known as rhinoplasty, it can improve your appearance and facial proportion as well as correct birth defects, injuries, and relieve breathing problems. If the procedure corrects a breathing problem or a marked deformity, a portion of the cost may be reimbursable by your insurance.
What to expect
Incisions are made inside the nostrils or at the base of the nose. The skin is separated from the supporting bone and cartilage, which is then sculpted to the desired shape. The hump is removed, the nasal bones are brought together to form a narrower bridge, and cartilage is trimmed or added to reshape the tip of the nose. Finally, the skin is re-draped over the new framework.
What to expect after surgery?
When completed, a splint will be applied for 1 week to help your nose maintain its new shape. The patient will have a smaller, straighter bridge, well defined nasal tip, and an improved angle between the nose and upper lip.
