What is a Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, is a procedure that can be used to reshape the nose for both cosmetic and medical reasons. It aims to create a more harmonious balance between the nose and other facial features. During this surgery, the external structures of the nose are modified to improve its appearance or function.

Types of Rhinoplasty:

Open Rhinoplasty

Performed with incisions made on the outside of the nose to gain access to the underlying cartilage and bone for reshaping.

Closed Rhinoplasty

Incisions are made within the nostrils, allowing access and reshaping the nasal structures.

Ethnic Rhinoplasty

Specially tailored to meet the unique needs of patients with ethnic backgrounds.

Revision Rhinoplasty

Used to correct any deformities or unsatisfactory results from a previous nose surgery.

Benefits of Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty can provide various benefits, both in terms of appearance and function.

Some of the key benefits may include:

  • Heightened self-confidence and self-esteem
  • Enhanced facial harmony and balance
  • Corrected breathing problems
  • Improved overall facial proportions and symmetry
  • Improved appearance of the nasal tip, bridge, or nostrils
  • Enhanced facial contours and definition

Am I a candidate for Rhinoplasty?

If you are unhappy with the appearance of your nose, or its function, you may be a candidate for the procedure. However, having realistic expectations about what the procedure can achieve and choosing a qualified and experienced surgeon is essential. Also, for a much-improved likelihood of a fully successful rhinoplasty New Haven area candidates should be in good health and have a fully developed nose, typically around the age of 15-16 for females and 16-17 for males. Lastly, patients with certain medical conditions or allergies may not be suitable candidates for the procedure.

Consultation and Preparation

During the consultation, the surgeon will evaluate your nasal structure and discuss goals and expectations for the procedure. We will also explain the procedure in detail, including the expected recovery time and potential risks and complications.

To prepare for the procedure, you may need to stop smoking and avoid certain medications and supplements that can increase the risk of bleeding. You may also need to arrange for someone to drive you home after the procedure and to help you with daily activities during the initial recovery period.

Rhinoplasty FAQs

As with any surgery, this procedure carries a few potential risks, such as bleeding, infection, and scarring; however, these can be managed when you seek the services of an expert surgeon and follow pre-operative instructions.

The results of the procedure are generally considered to be permanent. However, the nose can continue to change over time due to the natural aging process and other factors such as weight gain or pregnancy.

The cost of rhinoplasty can vary depending on the complexities of your specific outcome and goals.

In most cases, this is considered a cosmetic procedure and is not covered by insurance. However, the procedure may be partially or fully covered in some cases if it is deemed medically necessary to correct breathing problems or other functional issues.
