What is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty, or a nose job as it is commonly called, is one of the most common plastic surgeries performed in the United States and globally. Rhinoplasty intricately restructures the nose in order to bring better balance and proportion to the entire face. A rhinoplasty can also serve as a functional procedure to improve breathing issues by correcting structural problems, such as a deviated septum, within the nose. There are several variations of the procedure, such as ethnic rhinoplasty, which is rhinoplasty that preserves each patient’s ethnic identity and unique facial characteristics.

Dr. Davis can use various rhinoplasty techniques to modify the bony or cartilaginous components of the nose. Nose surgery can correct problems such as:

  • Dorsal hump
  • Wide dorsum
  • Bulbous tip
  • Under- or over-rotation of the nasal tip

Surgical Rhinoplasty

A traditional surgical rhinoplasty may be performed from inside the nose or through small incisions at the base of the nose to adjust the placement of bones or cartilage beneath the skin. Depending on an individual’s aesthetic goals and current nose structure, the shape of nasal bones or cartilage can be altered in many ways. Nose surgery offers permanent, long-lasting resultsDr. Davis combines functional rhinoplasty and cosmetic rhinoplasty surgery methods to provide optimal results in terms of appearance and function.

In general, good candidates for rhinoplasty include women and men who are in good mental and physical health and want to enhance the appearance of their nose. 

All candidates should:

  • Be non-smokers
  • Live a healthy lifestyle
  • Have completed facial growth 
  • Have realistic expectations for rhinoplasty
  • Understand the risks of a surgical procedure

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

A non-surgical rhinoplasty, sometimes called liquid rhinoplasty, provides temporary results. Non-surgical nose jobs address issues with a patient’s nose through the use of dermal fillers. There is no anesthesia with non-surgical rhinoplasty, so there is less risk involved than with traditional surgical rhinoplasty. Results are immediate, and there is minimal downtime.

Non-surgical rhinoplasty can address:

  • Small bumps
  • Asymmetries
  • Contouring issues
  • Droopy tips 

However, non-surgical rhinoplasty is not recommended for:

  • drastic restorations, such as repairing severely crooked or broken noses
  • repairing breathing issues
  • those who wear heavy glasses routinely

What Can I Expect During A Surgical Rhinoplasty Procedure?

Dr. Davis’s expertise allows her to personalize each rhinoplasty procedure to individual patients’ preferences. While each surgical rhinoplasty procedure will have varying details, there are some general steps you can expect throughout the process:

You will be greeted by the friendly peri-operative team at the clinic and check in. Dr. Davis will evaluate you, perform her surgical markings, and ensure you feel relaxed and comfortable before entering the operating room. Once you are safely sedated with general anesthesia, Dr. Davis will begin your rhinoplasty procedure as determined during your consultation. 

Dr. Davis will create incisions that are well-concealed in the columella and inside the nose. The duration of the procedure can range from 3-5 hours, depending on the patient’s nasal anatomy. An external nasal splint and an internal splint or packing will be placed.

The internal nasal splint or packing is typically removed 2 days following surgery, and the external nasal splint is removed on days 5-7. Swelling and bruising are common after this procedure. While it can take several months for the swelling to resolve entirely, most patients can resume their normal activities two to four weeks following surgery.

How Soon Will I See My Nose Job Results?

The length of the healing process from rhinoplasty will depend on your procedural plan. In most cases, the nasal splints are removed 5-7 days following surgery. You may experience swelling and bruising for several weeks following surgery. 

As the swelling from rhinoplasty can persist for months, it can take up to a year to fully realize your new nasal contour. You will notice gradual changes throughout that time until your nose fully heals.

As with any facial plastic surgery procedure, it is essential to thoroughly follow Dr. Davis’ instructions regarding performing physical activities, cleansing the area, and taking medications to ensure you retain your optimal results.
