What Is Rhinoplasty?

Who Should Have Rhinoplasty?

Adults and teenagers over 16 years of age are candidates for rhinoplasty. If you're unhappy with the appearance of your nose and have areas you hope to improve, enhance, or correct, this surgery may be the ideal course of action. It's very important to maintain realistic expectations, as your nose and facial profile will change. Furthermore, facial growth should also be complete. This factor will be discussed during your consultation, especially for patients under 21.

Surgical Technique

Rhinoplasty is performed with patients under sedation, such as general anesthesia, and is usually an outpatient surgery. Rhinoplasty can use various surgical methods, depending on your concerns and problems. Dr. Corbin performs nose surgery with either an open or closed technique. The goal during surgery is to reduce excess cartilage, tissue, and bone or to improve and add cartilage if needed for reshaping. The nasal features are repositioned and the skin is draped over the newly enhanced framework. Stitches are positioned either on the inside portion of the nose or along the natural external crease.

What to Expect after Rhinoplasty

Upon completion of your nose surgery, you'll rest comfortably in our recovery area, and then we'll release you to heal at home. The area around your nose will likely be swollen, bruised, and sore for a week or so. In most cases, there is bruising and discoloration beneath the eyes in addition to the nose. Ice packs and pain medication can help with these effects. Your post-operative appointment with Dr. Corbin will be scheduled within a couple of days after surgery to assess your healing progress. On average, it takes around 2 – 4 weeks to look normal following nose surgery. During the healing process, strenuous activity should be avoided.
