Rhinoplasty at MAXILLOFACIAL Surgery Services

Rhinoplasty – made famous by the entertainment industry with the term “nose job” – is our most popular surgical procedure. While rhinoplasty can give your nose a new size or shape, it’s also used to correct a number of physical issues, including:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Birth defects
  • Injury

If you’re a mature adult who is wondering if rhinoplasty is right for you, schedule a consultation – we’d be happy to talk about your options. With rhinoplasty, we can:

  • Change the sloping angle of your nose
  • Correct defects at the point from the tip to your upper lip
  • Narrow or widen the width of your nose
  • Increase or reduce the size or length of your nose
  • Correct bumps and other issues at the bridge of the nose
  • Change the shape of the nostrils
  • Enlarge or reduce nasal passages

Although rhinoplasty is usually performed on an outpatient basis, it’s a very visible procedure – give yourself time to heal. After the surgery, you’ll feel discomfort, puffiness, and pain in your nasal area. The first day, in particular, will be a bit uncomfortable; we recommend that you stay in bed, with your head elevated.

Patients with vision problems can wear contact lenses during their recovery, but glasses can interfere with the healing.
