What is Rhinoplasty?

Nose surgery, or rhinoplasty, is a surgical procedure that can correct several nasal deformities such as:

  • The size of the nose in relation to the rest of the face
  • Size and position of the nostrils
  • Width of the nose at the bridge
  • Depressions or bumps on the bridge of the nose
  • A nasal tip that is bulbous, hooked, upturned, or drooping
  • Large, wide, or upturned nostrils
  • Nasal asymmetry

In cases where asymmetrical tissue impairs breathing problems, or deviated septum, a rhinoplasty has the added medical benefit of correcting this condition and opening up the nasal passages.

How is Rhinoplasty Performed?

In order to create minimal visible scarring, Dr. Ramirez Gavidia will hide incisions along the normal folds and contours of the nose when possible. Depending on your individual procedure, he will manipulate the tissues and cartilage of the nose to create a more pleasing shape and appearance. In cases where a deviated septum is being corrected, symmetry is created between the nasal passages and obstructing tissue is removed to improve breathing.

What is Rhinoplasty Recovery Like?

After this procedure, recovery is typically minimal and requires minimal time away from normal activities. The new nasal contours may be bandaged to protect against post-surgical swelling, and any discomfort is typically easily controlled through prescription medication and aftercare instructions provided to you by Dr. Ramirez Gavidia.

What Results Can I Expect?

After all post-surgical swelling and bruising have subsided, men and women are able to fully enjoy their new nasal contours.
