What’s a Rhinoplasty Procedure?

Rhinoplasty, otherwise known as a Nose Surgery or a Nose Job, is a procedure performed to produce changes in the appearance, structure, and function of the nose. Rhinoplasty can reduce or increase the size of the nose, change the shape of the tip, or narrow the width of the bony portion of the nose and the nostrils. This operation can improve deformities associated with prior nasal injuries and help relieve some breathing problems.

This procedure is custom tailored for each individual patient’s needs. Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Rayham, will address your specific concerns and will provide you with detailed information to help choose specific approach to your rhinoplasty procedure. You may require reduction of the hump or augmentation of the profile of your nose, straitening of the bone or cartilage, or refining of the tip. There are times when your nasal irregularity has been caused by a prior accident or trauma or might be accompanied by breathing difficulties. In such instances your insurance policy may cover full or a part of the cost associated with your procedure.

Rhinoplasty is usually an outpatient procedure. It can be performed under either local (twilight sleep) or general anesthesia and lasts from one hour for a simple procedure to several hours for more complicated ones. Also, rhinoplasty can be performed in conjunction with other cosmetic surgical procedures. An individualized consultation is needed to select the procedure most appropriate for your needs.

It has been estimated that about 400,000 rhinoplasty operations performed each year, and it is considered to be one of the most popular cosmetic procedure in the United States.
