Facial Plastic Surgeons Who Specialize in Rhinoplasty at Village Institute of Plastic Surgery
People choose to have nose surgery for a variety of reasons making it one of the more common cosmetic procedures. Rhinoplasty is a surgery that reshapes the nose for most often for cosmetic reasons. People who are experiencing breathing issues will also undergo rhinoplasty to enlarge their nasal airways. Some of the benefits of rhinoplasty include: reducing or increasing the size of the nose, changing the shape of the tip or the bridge of the nose, altering the size of the nostrils, and changing the angle of the bottom of the nose. At Village Institute of Plastic Surgery we strive to deliver the best Rhinoplasty The Villages has to offer.
At VIP in The Villages rhinoplasty is performed at our practice’s on-site state licensed ambulatory surgical center. A fully equipped Operating Room, just like you will find in a hospital. The procedure is performed by one of our surgeons who is accompanied by a surgical staff of licensed and certified nurses and medical technicians.
The actual procedure can take from about 1 hour up to 3 or 4 hours. It all depends on the complexity of your particular needs and goals. Rhinoplasty can be performed in one of two ways: Depending on your procedure, our surgeons may be able to perform surgery by working through the nostrils. For more complex procedures involving the shape of the nose, incisions are almost always made that will require sutures, and the skin of the nose is usually separated from the bone and cartilage of the nose. This allows the surgeon to sculpt and reshape the bone and cartilage of the nose as desired.
Rhinoplasty surgery is different than most plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery procedures because it most often involves altering bone and cartilage. For this reason the healing process can take much longer than procedures that only involve skin, muscle and fat.
After surgery your nose will be very tender and you should avoid touching it or wearing glasses for at least the first week or so. Also during this time you will likely be directed by your surgeon to refrain from any activity that would increase your heart rate or blood pressure. After this initial stage of recovery, you will be able to return to work but continue to avoid strenuous activities. Generally after a few weeks internal and external incisions are healed but swelling will remain for many months, gradually improving over time. Typically after about a year your nose will have completely healed to is new shape and appearance.
