What is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is a procedure performed to reshape and refine the nose, offering functional and aesthetic benefits. Depending on your nose shape issues, the procedure can be performed via an open or closed approach. Both techniques heal well, and the incisions are virtually invisible. Occasionally, your body’s own cartilage may need to be harvested to help create the most balanced framework for your enhanced nose shape.

Who is a candidate for rhinoplasty?

Individuals seeking to enhance the aesthetic appearance of their nose or improve its functional aspect, namely breathing, make for ideal candidates for this procedure. Good candidates include those dissatisfied with the natural shape of their nose, those who have a crooked or asymmetrical nose, or individuals who have breathing issues due to structural problems within the nose. This procedure offers a dual benefit. It improves not only the physical appearance but also the practical functionality of the nose.

What is a rhinoplasty consultation like?

During your consultation, it’s crucial to ask all your questions to ensure you’re comfortable and confident about your choice of plastic surgeon. It’s equally important to be transparent about any medical conditions that could potentially impact your rhinoplasty procedure.

This consultation is an opportunity to view before-and-after photos of previous patients, providing a clearer understanding of the potential results. You’ll also receive detailed information about the surgical process and the rationale behind each step.

How do I prepare for rhinoplasty?

Individuals preparing for rhinoplasty should stop all medications that can increase the risk of excess bleeding in the weeks leading up to surgery. Patients should also arrange for a loved one to stay with them for the first few days after the operation to help with medications, adequate hydration, and nutritional needs.

What can I expect during recovery from rhinoplasty?

Our Jacksonville nose surgery team will help ensure a rapid recovery. The procedure is performed while the patient is under sedation or general anesthesia. Patients are asked to wear a nasal splint for approximately 7-10 days after the procedure. Some bruising does occur around the nose and eyes but resolves within a few weeks. As the swelling diminishes, you will see the new and improved you. Some minor swelling can take several months to resolve completely.
