Rhinoplasty in Everett – Seattle Washington – Nose Surgery

facial plastic surgery everett wa

The rhinoplasty procedure or nasal surgery is designed to re-shape the nose according to the patient’s wishes and needs and keep it natural looking. This surgical procedure can be done to improve nasal appearance, facial features and function and balance following trauma and fractures, breathing abnormalities, dissatisfaction with appearance, or a combination of these reasons. There are a variety of approaches to Rhinoplasty, including the use of incisions on the inside of the nose and the outside of the nose. Rhinoplasty might include reducing the “hump” on the top of the nose, narrowing or widening the nose, increasing the projection or changing the “tip” of the nose, or other goals. Sometimes the nasal septum is curved or “deviated” and this can be straightened or changed. Attention will be paid to the upper portion, central or middle portion, and the lower portion of your nasal appearance. It is important to discuss with your cosmetic surgeon any prior nasal conditions or medications you are taking, as well as any prior nasal procedures you have had, if any to determine if you are a good candidate for rhinoplasty Seattle . Prior to the facial plastic surgery procedure, multiple visits are recommended with your rhinoplasty surgeon to carefully design a plan that is right for you. Best rhinoplasty procedures can help with symmetry, self-confidence, imperfections, obstruction, structure and aesthetics.

What to expect: Your medical procedure will begin after consulting with your board certified facial or plastic surgeon and your anesthesiologist or anesthetist. Typical approaches involve a small incision placed on the lower part of your nose skin. From this incision and incisions made inside your nose, the cartilage and internal structures of your nose can be reshaped, using both reduction and augmentation techniques to work toward a plan created by you and your Seattle surgeon. Occasionally, ear cartilage or rib cartilage can be helpful, but typically the tissues of your nose and septum are utilized.

Rhinoplasty Recovery

The recovery: Nasal packs are sometimes necessary and are removed in the office 1-2 days following your rhinoplasty surgery. An external splint shaped to your nose is sometimes necessary and may be created in the operating room by one of our doctors and is removed after 1-2 weeks. Some swelling and bruising following rhinoplasty also known as a nose job, can last for many months, but typically improves over several weeks.

Some of the unlikely complications: Infection, fluid collections, or bleeding can occur following any type of Rhinoplasty, and may require surgical drainage, opening the sutures, nasal packing or other intervention. More rarely tissue damage can occur. A more complete discussion of the risks, benefits, experience, results and alternatives will always be included at your nose job surgery visit. As always, our efforts are always directed at minimizing the risk of these complications and optimizing your safety.
