Rhinoplasty

The nose is one of the first things people notice about someone’s appearance as it is within the center of the face. Unfortunately, many people are uncomfortable with the way their nose looks.  Some may have noticeable bumps, while others may feel their nose is too big or too small. Some patients may have undergone Rhinoplasty in the past, with unsatisfying results. Whatever your reason for seeking this procedure, Dr. Dillon can work to help you achieve your goals.

Rhinoplasty is a very popular procedure that can make profound differences in your facial features, as well as your self-esteem.  This surgical technique is used to reshape and correct deformations associated with the nose. Rhinoplasty can restore facial symmetry while giving the nose an aesthetically pleasing shape.

In addition to improving your appearance, Rhinoplasty can also correct impaired breathing caused by abnormalities in the nose, these adjustments include:

  • Changing the size of your nose
  • Altering the tip
  • Narrowing or widening the bridge
  • Altering the shape of your nostrils
  • Removing a bump caused by injury or genetics
  • Modification of nasal symmetry and deviation
  • Alignment of the septum

*The Procedure

Generally, incisions are made in the cartilage of the nose, allowing Dr. Dillon to access the nasal bone. The bone is then adjusted, thinned, and reshaped to produce the desired form. For patients who want to change the tip of their nose, this latter step may not be necessary.

*Post Surgery

Patients will experience swelling and bruising after their procedure. Splints typically support your nose for approximately one week to encourage proper healing. Once the splint is removed, you may be able to return to work. The swelling will begin to go down within the next few weeks. Results will be visible after a year.
