Common Concerns Addressed with a Rhinoplasty
Rhinoplasty aims to address several facial concerns. Below is a short guide to some of the most common concerns that a nose job can fix.
Size of the Nose
You may be a candidate for a nose job if you are unhappy with the size of your nose. If your nose is significantly larger than your other facial features, a rhinoplasty procedure is something worth considering.
Excessively Flared Nostrils
Some people have large nostrils that appear to be excessively flared all the time. A rhinoplasty procedure can fix this facial aesthetic issue by reshaping the nostrils to be smaller.
Width of the Nose
The standard width of a nose for a man is 2.2 inches, and for a woman is about 2 inches. Those with wider noses often consider rhinoplasty to improve their facial appearance.
Bump on the Nose Bridge
A bump on the nose bridge, also known as a dorsal hump, can impact a person’s chin, neck, and jaw symmetry. This is one of the most common kinds of rhinoplasty procedures and involves reducing the nose bridge’s bump.
Tip of the Nose
Rhinoplasty can drastically improve an asymmetrical nasal tip. This kind of nose reshaping is referred to as a tip plasty. Patients often choose a tip plasty if their nose’s tip is too broad, bulky, or pointed.
Crooked or Off-Center Appearance
Many people choose to have a rhinoplasty procedure performed because their nose is crooked, off-center, or asymmetrical. With that being said, the nose is one of the most prominent features on the face and is one of the primary facial features that determines attractiveness in the brain. The brain is attracted to facial symmetry, and if one’s nose is crooked, the person is likely considered less attractive. Rhinoplasty offers a solution to this facial imbalance by giving people the chance to change their nose’s dimensions and size.
Asymmetry Due to Previous Injury
If the nose has been broken before, likely, it is now asymmetrical. An asymmetrical nose impacts the appearance of the face and can obstruct breathing. A rhinoplasty procedure can fix a previously broken nose. Some of the most common types of nose fractures that a nose job can fix include:
- Le Fort
- Saddle Deformity
Types of Rhinoplasty Procedures
Dr. Castellano offers various types of rhinoplasty procedures for Clearwater patients. Dr. Castellano understands that each rhinoplasty procedure is unique and complex in its own way. That’s why he and his knowledgeable support team will do all that they can to create a customized surgical plan for you that ensures your safety and satisfaction. During your free consultation, Dr. Castellano will go over the type of rhinoplasty procedure he believes is right for you. Below are the two main surgical techniques used for rhinoplasty procedures that Dr. Castellano will go over with you.
Open rhinoplasty is the more common rhinoplasty technique used by cosmetic surgeons. This kind of procedure involves making small, horizontal incisions across the skin that separates the two nostrils. Usually, there is no scar from this external incision.
The purpose of this kind of procedure is to get greater precision during the rhinoplasty surgery by gaining greater visibility to the anatomy of the nose and the surgical site.
A closed rhinoplasty involves making incisions on the inside of the nostrils. This kind of rhinoplasty procedure is used for simple nose jobs as Dr. Castellano will not have a full and direct view of the nose’s anatomy. It’s important to point out that the only kind of scarring from this procedure will be inside the nostrils.
Rhinoplasty Recovery Time
Recovery after a rhinoplasty procedure is different for every patient, depending on the complexity of the procedure, whether or not the patient had other procedures performed simultaneously, and how well the patient is following care instructions. Most people are fully recovered in 4-6 months; however, some patients can take up to a year to recover. It’s important to point out that though a patient can take months to recover, the recovery is not debilitating and will not get in the way of daily life tasks and responsibilities. Most Clearwater patients can return to work, light exercise, and social events 10-14 days after their rhinoplasty procedure.
Like any surgery, the first 24 hours is the most difficult. We recommend that all Clearwater rhinoplasty patients arrange a ride home and spend the rest of the day taking it easy. We also recommend that patients plan to take off work for about a week and avoid any strenuous activity during this time. You will likely bruise and swell during the first week of recovery, though this often subsides around the second week of recovery.
It’s imperative that you follow all of your surgeon’s post-operative instructions in order to heal quickly, safely, and appropriately.
Can Rhinoplasty Be Combined with Other Procedures?
Yes! Dr. Castellano is skilled at performing multiple procedures at once. Many people combine rhinoplasty procedures with facial reconstruction surgeries such as a facelift, brow lift, or even an eyelid lift. People often choose to combine cosmetic surgeries in Clearwater to save money and to only have to deal with the recovering process once.
