What is Rhinoplasty (Beverly Hills, CA)?
Nose surgery (rhinoplasty), uses a variety of different surgical techniques to change the shape and contours of the nose. Every nose is as different as the patient requesting a change. Because of this, many different techniques must be employed to generate a custom plan to produce the best possible individualized results.
Rhinoplasty can reduce or increase the size of your nose, change the shape of the tip or the bridge, narrow the nostrils, or change the angle between your nose and your upper lip. It may also correct a birth defect or injury, or help relieve some breathing problems.
You may want nose surgery (rhinoplasty) if you:
- Are dissatisfied with the shape, length and visible appearance of your nose
- Suffer from emotional distress due to your appearance
- Have a birth defect or injury
The Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty) Procedure:
Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty, Beverly Hills) is performed under general anesthesia and typically takes 1-3 hours, though it varies from case to case. During surgery the skin of the nose is separated from its supporting framework of bone and cartilage and sculpted to the desired shape. The skin is then re-draped over the new framework.
Rhinoplasties are performed from within the nose or as an “open” procedure. In open procedures, a small incision is made across the columella, the vertical strip of tissue separating the nostrils.
When the nose surgery is complete, a splint will be applied to help your nose maintain its new shape. Rhinoplasty patients are able to return to work in about one week, and back to normal several weeks after the surgery.
Prior to your rhinoplasty procedure, Dr.Calvert will provide instructions for how to help reduce the risks of complications both before and after your nose procedure.
