Nose Job is an operation performed on the nose with the goal of improving the appearance of facial symmetry to create balanced features, or to remove deviations which may have been caused by birth defect, injury or breathing obstruction.
As the central facial feature, your nose plays a pivotal role in your appearance and self-esteem. Nose Surgery or Rhinoplasty changes the size or shape of your nose, restoring proportion to the rest of your face. It can have amazing results for your appearance and your entire life.Best of all, Nose Surgery is usually not painful and doesn’t leave visible scars.
Nose Job is used to:
• Reduce or increase the size of your nose
• Remove a bump
• Change the tip or bridge
• Narrow the span of your nostrils
• Change the angle with your upper lip
• Relieve breathing problems
Rhinoplasty Revision is performed to correct an unwanted outcome from a previous Rhinoplasty Surgery. With over 20 years of outstanding Plastic Surgery experience and over 1000 Rhinoplasty cases, Dr Edinburg is a preferred Plastic Surgeon for Rhinoplasty Revision.
During nose surgery, incisions are usually made inside the nose or between the nostrils. To reduce nose size,some cartilage in the middle of the nose (septum) is removed until the desired size is achieved. To build up the nose, cartilage and bone may be added to increase its size. Changing the tip or bridge, and the nose angle is achieved by reshaping the nose’s cartilage and soft tissue. Nostril span is narrowed via small incisions at the base of each nostril.
After the procedure, some packing may be fitted inside your nose and a splint on the outside to support the nose during initial healing. You may experience bruising and swelling around the eyes, but this should ease off in about a week, and you should be ready to resume normal activities by then. Your new nose shape will refine over the next few months, as the swelling settles.
