What is a rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty, nose surgery or a nose job, is a surgical procedure that reshapes the nose into a more desirable contour. After the eyes, the nose is the most prominent feature on the face. For those unhappy with their nose, make a change. However, caution is advised. Rhinoplasty is a procedure where every millimeter counts. Trust your rhinoplasty to an experienced, board-certified surgeon like Dr. Dunkley.

Why is a rhinoplasty performed?

Most often, rhinoplasty is performed for cosmetic reasons. Patients seek to change the shape or size of their nose for various reasons. Some people are born with noses of an unusual size or shape. Others may have broken their nose or had impact injuries never repaired. Still, other people complain they don’t like the shape or they can’t breathe through the nose. Rhinoplasty is the answer in all of these cases.

What can I expect during my procedure?

Dr. Dunkley will alter the shape of the nose using one of two major rhinoplasty approaches — closed or open. A closed rhinoplasty makes all incisions on the inside of the nose, eliminating any exterior scarring. An open rhinoplasty makes one incision on the outside fleshy part of the nose between the nostrils. Dr. Dunkley usually recommends the closed approach. You are asleep for your surgery. After a short stay in the recovery room, you are ready to go. The biggest complaint for the next two weeks is the nose being stuffy.

What happens after my nose surgery?

For several days following your surgery, you may feel puffiness in the face, especially around the eyes and nose. Bruising and swelling are common. To alleviate discomfort, Dr. Dunkley advises his patients to apply cold compresses to the area and to take pain relief medications as needed. The swelling and bruising usually fade in 10 to 14 days.

What can I expect from the results of a rhinoplasty?

Depending on the correction done on a patient’s nose, the results can appear minor or more significant. After the cast and tape are removed, the shape change will be obvious. Months are needed to see the final results. The tip swelling is the last to resolve. It’s important to have realistic expectations going into your surgery. Rhinoplasty could be the improvement to your face that you’ve always desired.
