Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a "nose job" service is conveniently located in downtown Miami, Florida, just minutes from the Miami International Airport.
Who Are Candidates For A Rhinoplasty?
Nasal reshaping or nose surgery can be done by people who:
- They want to refine / reshape their nose to improve its appearance
- They were born with a nasal deformation that requires surgical correction with a plastic surgeon
- Have suffered a nasal injury in an accident or sporting event
- They consider that the tip of their nose is dropping due to the weakening of structural support caused by aging
However, we advise against performing these procedures on children for cosmetic purposes only, as the nose continues to grow and develop until 14 or 16 years of age.
What results can I expect from a nose job?
Nasal refinement surgery is often the most challenging operation for plastic surgeons. Achieving a natural-looking “nose job” or revision rhinoplasty depends not only on the skills and experience of your surgeon, but also on the ability to consider the unique anatomical features and features of each patient.
The Rhinoplastic consultation process
Since everyone's face and cosmetic nasal reshaping goals are unique, an expert will help you make an informed decision about your nasal enhancement procedure. Under his care, you will receive what is best for you.
Rhinoplastic Surgical Technique And Protocol
Rhinoplasty is a term that describes a series of operative techniques that can be used to modify the aesthetic and functional properties of the nose. Surgical access to the nose can generally be obtained through incisions inside the nose or through a combination of incisions inside the nose and outside the nostrils.
In an open rhinoplasty procedure, an incision is made in the area of the nose called the columella (the small segment of skin between the nostrils). Then the expert gently penetrates the nose to access the upper and lower lateral cartilages. The advantages of an open rhinoplasty are: little bleeding during surgery (if any), minimal swelling, and a faster and easier recovery.
In a closed rhinoplasty procedure, the expert makes several incisions on the inside of the nostrils and none on the outside, so there are no visible scars after surgery.
Recovery and aftercare
During surgery, a small splint is placed on your nose to keep it stable and protected. The splint stays in place for five to seven days. Depending on the patient, nasal packing may be used to help reduce inflammation and bleeding. This packing is placed inside the nose during surgery and is removed the next morning. Don't be alarmed if your nostrils are blocked or if you feel stuffy after surgery.
