Benefits of a Rhinoplasty
The benefits of rhinoplasty depend on the patient and the reason for surgery, but in all cases, the goal and the result is a visually pleasing nose for the patient. Rhinoplasty can be the ideal aesthetic procedure for cosmetic purposes, such as if you would like to eliminate a bump on the bridge of your nose, to reshape your nostrils, or to alter the size or shape of your nose. In some cases, nasal surgery may be performed to correct breathing, which may involve simply straightening the wall of cartilage inside your nose that separates the two nostrils and their airways, or it may require building up the structure and support of your nose to improve airflow. It’s important to note that many health insurance carriers cover medically indicated functional nasal surgery.
Who Is The Ideal Candidate For A Rhinoplasty?
Are you looking for an increase in your ease of breathing, or a boost in your confidence with a more aesthetically pleasing nose? A wide or large nasal tip can be refined, as Dr. Zamora will meticulously sculpt the cartilage that makes up the tip of your nose. A droopy nose can also be resolved with similar techniques. A rhinoplasty may be performed for functional purposes, such as to correct a deviated septum. Repair of nasal trauma can involve correction through rhinoplasty of any abnormalities of your nose caused by trauma or birth defects, as well as restore normal breathing. Each procedure is highly individualized by Dr. Zamora, according to your anatomy and aesthetic goals.
What Do I Need To Do Before A Rhinoplasty?
Whether reconstructive or cosmetic, nasal surgery may improve your breathing while rejuvenating your appearance. Dr. Zamora will provide all of your preoperative and postoperative instructions prior to your rhinoplasty. It is likely that prior to your rhinoplasty that we will ask you to stop certain vitamins, herbs, and medications, including aspirin and ibuprofen, among other measures. Patients will thus be advised not to eat or drink anything the day of their procedure and to stop smoking. Transportation arrangements should also be made because of the dressings, as well as the initial discomfort.
What Should I Expect On The Day Of My Rhinoplasty?
The surgery is relatively quick and can be completed in an outpatient setting. Each type of rhinoplasty has different techniques involved, but the two main types of procedure are open and closed. The closed rhinoplasty does not use any external incisions.
How Long Does It Take To Perform A Rhinoplasty?
The rhinoplasty is a relatively quick procedure. During your consultation, based on the type of rhinoplasty that you are pursuing, Dr. Zamora will give you specific information about how long it will take to perform your rhinoplasty.
What To Expect After A Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty recovery is a simple process. When rhinoplasty is complete, the first 48 hours may be accompanied with some side effects. Since we do not pack your nose after nose surgery, the great majority of our patients do not have pain after rhinoplasty, and many patients feel a mild sensation of fullness or tightness from the swelling, but not pain. The doctor will suggest patients keep their heads elevated and rest after surgery. Most of the swelling inside and outside of the nose after nasal surgery will be gone one week after your surgery, and the healing process only takes about two weeks, but your nose needs time to fully recover, which can take up to a year.
Will I Have Scars After Getting A Rhinoplasty?
Dr. Zamora will review his strategy for minimizing scars during a rhinoplasty at your consultation. A closed rhinoplasty begins with an internal incision inside the nostril, so the patient is able to be entirely scar free.
When Will I See The Results?
Although you will be able to visibly appreciate the results of the procedure after a couple of weeks, it takes a full year before the final results can be fully appreciated.
What Are Possible Complications Of A Rhinoplasty?
During your rhinoplasty consultation with Dr. Zamora, the procedure will be explained in detail, as Dr. Zamora takes the time to find out your goals for the surgery, in addition to discussing any possible complications of a rhinoplasty procedure.
How Long Will The Results Of A Rhinoplasty Last?
The results of your rhinoplasty will last a lifetime, which is why a rhinoplasty with Dr. Zamora is such an invaluable investment in your current and future happiness, self-confidence, and self-esteem.
