Rhinoplasty

As the central focus of the face, your nose plays an important role in creating a balanced, attractive facial appearance. For many men and women, a poorly proportioned or shaped nose can dramatically impact how comfortable and confident they are with their appearance. Many teens and adults suffer from a nose that lacks aesthetic appeal by being too large, too short, or too wide. Natural or trauma-caused deformities can also affect the breathing function of the nose. Dr. Messa performs rhinoplasty to improve your nasal structure, enhance your appearance, and restore balance to your facial features.

Who Can Benefit?

Many men and women are born with a poorly proportioned nose, or sometimes their nose naturally grows out of balance with the rest of their facial features. In many cases, an undesirable nasal appearance is the result of a nose that is naturally too long or too short. Some patients suffer from a drooping nasal tip that affects the overall appearance of the nose.

What Do You Desire?
Addressing Your Concerns

  • Recovery

    You will experience bruising and swelling following your surgery. Nasal packing and splints are using to support your healing nasal structures. You will be required to rest with your head elevated for one week to help minimize excess swelling.

     

    Most patients return to work within two weeks of their procedure. You will need to avoid strenuous physical activities for up to four weeks. Most major swelling subsides after six weeks. After this time, you can wear eyeglasses if necessary, but they will require special support for several more weeks.

  • Scars

    A closed rhinoplasty will result in no visible scarring. However, not every patient is suited for a closed technique. Patients that undergo an open rhinoplasty may have some minor visible scarring at the base of their nostrils. The extent of scarring often depends on your body’s natural healing process. Any scarring that does develop is likely to fade over time.

  • Cost

    The cost of a rhinoplasty is determined by a number of factors and varies between patients. The extent of correction needed along with hospital fees, facility fees, and anesthesia fees will all affect the ultimate cost of your procedure. A detailed quote will be provided following your consultation.

  • Pain

    There many be some initial discomfort caused by difficulty breathing due to the nasal packing. Some patients need time to adjust to the obstructed nasal airways. You may feel some mild soreness around your face. This may be controlled using an oral pain medication.
