The nose is the anchor of the face, so when it is disproportionate to the rest of the facial features, symmetry can be thrown off. Patients who are unhappy with the size or shape of their nose can undergo Nose Surgery in Concord and Boston to correct any issues they may have.
What is Nose Surgery?
Nose Surgery, also known as rhinoplasty, is done to reshape and refine the nose. It can correct a number of issues, including bumps or humps in the nose, a hooked nose, a crooked nose, a hanging nasal tip, flared nostrils, and much more.
How is Nose Surgery done?
During Nose Surgery, a small incision is made along the columella or the strip of tissue between the nostrils. This allows access to the bones and cartilage underneath. Bone and cartilage can then be removed or added to create the desired nose contour.
During Asian Nose Surgery, the bridge of the nose is raised to increase the projection of the bones in the nose. Cartilage grafts, bone grafts, or implants can all help to achieve this step. A nostril narrowing plastic surgery facial procedure may also be done for desired results.
Who is a good candidate for Nose Surgery?
Good candidates are patients who are unhappy with the shape or size of their nose. Correction can be made to ensure more symmetrical, harmonious facial features. A consultation with Dr. Narasimhan will help to determine which steps should be taken to achieve your optimal nose contour.
What should I expect during recovery from Nose Surgery?
After Nose Surgery, a splint will need to be worn on the nose for 10 days to help protect the nose and ensure it heals correctly. Any bruising or swelling that occurs will subside within three weeks. Pain medication can be prescribed to help with any discomfort, though most patients do not need to take pain medication longer than two to three days.
