Why Get Nose Reconstruction?
The nose sits on the center of the face. It is one of the prominent features that is noticed when people look at you and changes to it can have a significant effect facial aesthetics. Perhaps you have a bumpy nose and want it smoothed out. While heredity and ethnicity typically determine the shape of your nose, rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that can change the appearance and proportion of the nose, enhancing facial harmony and self-confidence. Perhaps you think that your nose is too small, too big, too narrow or too wide. Maybe your desire to change your nose is not due to a cosmetic reason, but rather a medical need (ex: a deviated septum, sports injury, or prior nose surgery that was incorrectly done). Though heredity, ethnicity or an accident has determined the shape of your nose, now you are able to change it to what you desire.
Rhinoplasty (nose surgery) can improve the proportion and appearance of your nose, as well as correct a breathing issue associated with the nose. The plastic surgeons in South Florida will perform rhinoplasty using a closed or open procedure. In a closed procedure, the incisions are hidden inside the nose. In an open procedure, the incision is made across the columella (the narrow strip of tissue that separates the nostril). When these incisions are made, the best plastic surgeons in Fort Lauderdale are able to reshape the nose structure by gently raising the skin that covers the nasal bones and cartilages. If the patient has a deviated septum, during nose surgery, it can be straightened and the projections inside the nose can be reduced to improve breathing.
During your rhinoplasty recovery, the surgeon will place a splint and/or packing inside of your nose, as well as bandages or a splint outside your nose to support and protect your new nose structure during the healing process. Even though the swelling will subside within a few weeks, it may take up to a year for your new nasal contours to fully refine. During the first year following your rhinoplasty surgery, swelling may come and go and worsen in the mornings. Your Florida plastic surgeons will prescribe medication to help you control your pain. Your surgeon will also give you specific directions on how to care for your surgical site and these directions should be followed exactly. As your nose is refined to a more permanent outcome, you will notice gradual changes in the appearance of your nose.
