What is a Rhinoplasty?
A rhinoplasty, also called a nose job, is a facial surgery that is performed to enhance the size and shape of the nose. Most often, rhinoplasty is performed to enhance the qualities of the nose so that it best complements your other facial features and enhances facial harmony. However, rhinoplasty procedures can also be performed to restore or improve a patient’s breathing ability. Whether you are experiencing breathing difficulties or you’re unhappy with the appearance of the nose, rhinoplasty offers an effective and permanent solution.
How Much Does a Rhinoplasty Cost?
Like many cosmetic surgeries, the cost of a rhinoplasty can vary significantly depending on the treatment goals and needs of the patient. To determine the cost of your rhinoplasty treatment, we invite you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Banks’ team. During your consultation, we’ll develop a personalized treatment plan that includes the exact cost of your treatment. In an effort to make this and other treatments as affordable as possible, we offer flexible financing options.
What is the Rhinoplasty Treatment Like?
The rhinoplasty procedure can be performed under local or general anesthesia depending on your treatment plan. Treatments that require general anesthesia will be performed at our local surgery center. To perform the surgery, incisions are typically made inside the nose, where they will be virtually invisible. Incisions may also be made along the base of the nose. Once incisions are made, both cartilage and bone in the nose can be reshaped to produce the desired results.
What Can I Expect After the Rhinoplasty Treatment?
After a rhinoplasty, you will need to take at least one week off of work and other activities. During this time, you can expect swelling, bruising and discomfort in the nose. These symptoms are most severe within the first week, but we will provide you with a prescription for pain medication and clear guidelines to make your recovery as comfortable as possible. While you can expect to return to all activities within a month or two, you may continue to experience some residual swelling in the nose for several months. It is important to avoid any activities that could damage the nose during the healing period to ensure optimal results.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from My Rhinoplasty?
The results from a rhinoplasty will be visible immediately, and will become more noticeable as the body heals and any side effects fade. The results from rhinoplasty will be permanent.
