What cosmetic issues can rhinoplasty correct?
Age, genetics, and trauma all contribute to the changing shape and appearance of your nose. Rhinoplasty addresses a number of concerns that leave you feeling dissatisfied with your profile. Surgery can make your nose larger or smaller, change the shape of the tip, narrow the nostrils, or create more symmetry.
Rhinoplasty is a very personal procedure, and you should feel confident that your surgeon understands your unique goals. Dr. Schultz takes the time to get to know you, answer your questions, and explain what to expect from this cosmetic surgery. Our team will ensure you are fully prepared for your nose reshaping procedure.
How does Dr. Schultz perform rhinoplasty?
Dr. Ben Schultz was trained in both open and closed rhinoplasty procedures. Not all patients are for a closed rhinoplasty (no incisions). Those who require an open rhinoplasty will have a small incision on their columella that will disappear in a matter of weeks-to-months. Whether open or closed, Dr. Ben is able to reshape the bones and cartilage with ease. The surgery takes about two hours to complete, and our patients are able to go home on the same day without internal splints.
When do rhinoplasty results show?
Rhinoplasty patients can see an immediate improvement in their appearance following surgery. However, it may take up to 9-12 months for the full results to become apparent. Swelling and inflammation are normal but temporary side effects, and they can prevent you from seeing your final outcomes right away. Dr. Schultz provides patients with post-operative instructions and a care plan to ensure proper healing.
How to make rhinoplasty recovery as smooth as possible
Recovery following rhinoplasty surgery is generally a smooth and uncomplicated process. Most people experience bruising in addition to swelling around the nose. Dr. Schultz will prescribe pain medication to minimize discomfort and schedule follow-up appointments as needed. We may also place a splint on the outside your nose to support the new structures. Try to avoid strenuous exercise and activities that put excessive pressure on the nose (such as wearing eyeglasses)
Are rhinoplasty results permanent?
Results from nose reshaping can last a lifetime with proper care. However, natural age or factors beyond our control may lead to subtle differences in your features over time. If you experience any changes or trauma that affects your outcomes, contact our office for an evaluation. Dr. Schultz may recommend a revision rhinoplasty procedure to restore your previous appearance and address any new concerns.
