Facial Harmony

The nose is often considered a focal point of our face, so it’s important to ensure that your nose complements your overall facial aesthetic. For patients whose nose crooks one way or the other or those suffering from injuries to the nose, rhinoplasty may be a good option. At Inspire Aesthetics, we strive to give every patient the look they desire with advanced techniques and surgical options to ensure your new nose meets cosmetic goals.

About Rhinoplasty Surgery

Rhinoplasty, often referred to as a “nose job,” is a surgical procedure aimed at reshaping and enhancing the appearance of the nose. At Inspire Aesthetics, our plastic surgeons perform rhinoplasty in Delray Beach & Fort Lauderdale to alter the size, shape, and length of the nose, bringing it into better harmony with the rest of the face. Whether you seek cosmetic improvements or require medical intervention to address nasal breathing issues, our skilled team helps you achieve your desired results.

We see rhinoplasty patients in their late teens (once the nose stops growing) and adults to reshape the nose for cosmetic reasons, to correct birth defects, or to resolve breathing issues through the nasal passage. We can improve the size and width of the nose, change the shape of the tip or the bridge, narrow the nostrils, and more. Our plastic surgeons consider your specific facial structure and features to ensure a realistically balanced, gorgeous outcome.

Rhinoplasty offers many benefits to patients looking to enhance their facial appearance. This procedure can be performed at any age, but it is suggested that children and teens wait to undergo this procedure until their facial growth is complete. Good candidates for rhinoplasty in Fort Lauderdale or Delray Beach may have any of the following nasal issues: a disproportionate nose, deviated septum, enlarged nasal tip, excessively flared nostrils, crooked or off-center nasal bridge, or other cosmetic or functional concerns related to the nose.

Types of Rhinoplasty Techniques

Rhinoplasty is usually performed as an outpatient procedure with the patient under local or general anesthesia. Each patient’s surgical experience will differ due to their needs and goals. There are several approaches and techniques that can be used during nose surgery, including open and closed rhinoplasty. When augmenting the nose, the surgeon can take cartilage from deep within the nose, or the cartilage may be harvested from other areas, such as the ribs.

Closed Rhinoplasty

Closed rhinoplasty is a surgical technique to reshape and enhance the nose’s appearance without visible scarring. This procedure involves making incisions solely on the inside of the nostrils, eliminating external scarring. Through these hidden incisions, plastic surgeons can access and modify the nasal structures, making it an attractive option for patients seeking subtle changes with less postoperative visibility. Closed rhinoplasty offers a quicker recovery period.

Open Rhinoplasty

Open rhinoplasty is a surgical technique to address complex nasal issues and achieve precise aesthetic results. During this procedure, a small incision is made across the columella, the strip of skin between the nostrils, allowing the surgeon to lift the nasal skin and access the underlying structures for a thorough examination and adjustment. While it may leave a faint scar, open rhinoplasty provides surgeons with greater visibility and control. Don’t hesitate to call our offices to learn more about open rhinoplasty in Fort Lauderdale or Delray Beach.

Nose Augmentation

Nose augmentation is a surgical technique that involves using cartilage grafts to enhance the shape, size, or projection of the nose. During this procedure, a skilled surgeon typically harvests cartilage from the patient’s own nasal septum, ear, or rib and sculpts and implants it into the desired areas of the nose. This technique is commonly used to correct nasal deformities, improve the nasal bridge, or refine the nasal tip, resulting in a more balanced appearance.

Septoplasty

Septoplasty is a surgical procedure to correct a deviated septum, the thin wall of cartilage and bone that separates the nasal passages. A deviated septum can cause breathing difficulties and contribute to issues like snoring and chronic sinus problems. During septoplasty, a surgeon reshapes or removes the obstructing tissue, allowing for improved airflow and nasal function. This procedure can relieve nasal congestion and enhance overall quality of life.

Your Rhinoplasty Recovery Process

Following surgery, patients can expect to have swelling and bruising around the nose and eyes for approximately 2 weeks. Patients must keep their head above their chest to help improve swelling. Congestion is also common following rhinoplasty in Delray Beach or Fort Lauderdale, and may be caused by the splints and nasal packing worn the first few days post-surgery. After removing the splints, patients can see and admire their newly shaped and contoured nose.

Rhinoplasty FAQs

Is rhinoplasty painful?

Most patients experience some discomfort following rhinoplasty, but it is generally well-managed with prescribed pain medications. Swelling and bruising are common in the days following the surgery, but these side effects typically subside within a couple of weeks.

How long is the recovery period?

The recovery period varies from person to person, but most patients can expect to resume their normal activities within one to two weeks after surgery. It may take several months for the final results to manifest as residual swelling subsides.
