Also known as rhinoplasty, this procedure can vary from nasal tip definition to full correction of a dorsal “hump.” While contouring, the external appearance of the nose surgery can also be done to correct breathing abnormalities from a deviated septum or other internal derangements.
Procedure: Incisions hidden at the nostril base and/or inside the nose allow access to reshape underlying cartilage and/or bone. This may include lowering humps, narrowing of nasal bones, shaping of the nasal tip or nostril size and improving the angle between the nose and the upper lip.
Results: Splints and internal tubes may support the nose as it begins to heal for approximately one week. You should see a change within 6 to 8 weeks following surgery, with continued refinement for 6 to 12 months. Cartilage is a flexible and growing tissue; therefore results following surgery are not fully predictable. Swelling may come and go and worsen in the morning, or with activity, during the first year following your nose surgery.
