Rhinoplasty Q & A

What is a Rhinoplasty?

A rhinoplasty — also called a nose job — is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of your nose. In addition to their cosmetic benefits, rhinoplasties can address functional issues with breathing, often due to nasal obstruction and congestion.

At Specialty Physician Associates, the team works with you to determine how rhinoplasty can help you achieve your aesthetic goals while reducing the severity of breathing problems, if you experience any.

What are the Benefits of Rhinoplasty?

Besides helping you feel more confident in the appearance of your nose, rhinoplasty can help with:

  • Improving nose size in relation to your other facial features
  • Improving the width of your nose at the bridge or nostrils
  • Removing visible humps or depressions on the bridge of your nose
  • Improving the appearance of a nasal tip that is hooked, bulbous, drooping, or upturned
  • Reducing the size of nostrils that are wide, large, or upturned
  • Reducing nasal asymmetry

If you experience any of these issues and want to make a change, discuss your desires with the team to determine if your aesthetic goals are achievable through rhinoplasty.

Am I a Candidate for Rhinoplasty?

In order to be considered for rhinoplasty, the team discusses your goals for the surgery in order to determine your desired outcome and ensure that the surgery is a safe and beneficial option for you. Some important factors the team takes into consideration to determine if you’re a candidate for rhinoplasty include:

  • Your facial growth is complete
  • You’re healthy
  • You don’t smoke
  • You don’t have any medical conditions that could delay healing, such as diabetes or kidney disease

The team thoroughly examines your nose inside and out to better understand its anatomical structure and what changes can be made during the surgery to address your aesthetic concerns.

They discuss these changes with you before your surgery to make sure you understand how the procedure is performed and what to expect once you’re fully healed.

How Long is Recovery After Rhinoplasty?

In most cases, recovery takes about a week. Your doctor gives you at-home care instructions and follows up with you a few days after your surgery to remove the soft splint that is supporting your nose as it heals.

You’ll likely notice swelling and tenderness around your nose for the first week as it heals. In most cases, you can return to school, work, or other obligations after a week.
