Nose reshaping can fix several things: Size of your nose in proportion to your face
There are several factors to consider to determine whether you’re a candidate for rhinoplasty, among them:
Age: You must be at least 15 years old. At this age, the structures of the nose have stabilized, making the surgery possible.
Intact Structure: If you’ve suffered severe damage to the bone and cartilage due to another surgery or accident, you may not be able to undergo nose reshaping.
Expectations: You must have realistic expectations of what your results will look like.
Good Health: You must be healthy enough to withstand invasive surgery, anesthesia, and the post-surgical recovery period. Certain medical conditions or reactions to anesthesia may not make it possible for you to undergo surgery.
Rhinoplasty is performed on an outpatient basis. The surgery can take anywhere from one to three hours, but longer for a revision surgery. You will receive local anesthesia, with sedation. In some instances, general anesthesia may be required. Your surgeon will either perform open rhinoplasty or closed rhinoplasty, which refers to the incisions made. Learn more about the types of rhinoplasty. Next, your plastic surgeon reshapes the nose by reducing or augmenting nasal structures, and correcting a deviated septum, if necessary. Finally, the incision is closed, and the nasal skin and tissue re-draped. Your doctor may apply a cast or splint.
Here’s a quick overview of your options:
Open rhinoplasty: Incisions are made in the small area of skin separating your nostrils, known as the columella.
Closed rhinoplasty: Typically used for minor reshaping, incisions are made within the nose. Your plastic surgeon separates the skin from the bone and cartilage so that it can be reshaped, rearranged, removed or augmented as needed.
Revision rhinoplasty: Performed to correct problems from a previous rhinoplasty. Filler rhinoplasty: Uses injectable fillers to correct depressions, and smooth out problem areas. Results are usually not permanent.
