Surgery of the nose, or rhinoplasty is the procedure to improve the proportion or appearance of your nose to enhance facial harmony and at the same time, self-confidence. In some cases, a rhinoplasty may also help to correct breathing issues caused by structural abnormalities or deformities that may have been caused by an injury to the nose in previous years. While most of us are generally happy with our noses, we do find that many patients in West Palm Beach seek to make changes to their nose due a nose shape they have inheredited.
Rhinoplasty surgery helps treat:
- Your nose size, especially in relation to your other facial structures
- Your profile, altering or diminishing a visible hump or depression on the bridge
- Your nasal tip, making a bulbous tip less noticeable, or correct a droop or upturn
- Your nose asymmetry and possible deviation and width
As long as a patient has realistic goals, is healthy, over the age of 13 and is making the change to fulfill their own desires, not someone else's --- then they are a good candidate. At a consultation with Dr. Brian Hass, you will discuss your expectations, your overall health and how the procedure will be performed.
Surgically, rhinoplasty is a short out-patient procedure performed in our AAAASF certified facility under general anesthesia, or in some case, for tiplasty we can perform the procedure under twilight anesthesia. Patients will generally experience very little discomfort, but can have some swelling and bruising which may last about 1 - 2 weeks. Overall it's a fairly quick recovery. Rhinoplasty patients are back to school quickly and generally return to all physical activities within 4 - 6 weeks.
