At Jaime Rodriguez Sierra Plastic Surgery, your health and well-being are our major concerns.
This procedure seeks to alter the nose’s dimensions in order to reshape it and transform into a beautiful, proportioned feature that achieves balance and harmony with the rest of the face.
The surgery is designed based on what the patient desires to change (bridge or tip of the nose, size of nostrils, etc.) and uses the least invasive technique (surgery can be open or closed) to make scars practically unnoticeable, providing very satisfactory and natural looking results.
Some of the indications that you may be a good candidate for rhinoplasty are:
In evaluating you for rhinoplasty, Dr. Rodriguez Sierra will conduct a routine and painless examination of your internal nasal structures.
Your skin quality as well as the size and shape of your nose and its relationship to your other facial features will be carefully studied.
There are 2 techniques, one in which all incisions are placed inside your nose (closed technique) or incision in the outside,not visibles (open technique).
Alterations may be made to increase or decrease the nasal bridge, reduce the size or width of the nose, narrow the nostrils, change the angle between the nose and upper lip, or reshape the tip.
If your nose needs to be built up in some areas, this can be done using nasal cartilage, or perhaps bone or cartilage from another site.
If you are a smoker, you will be asked to stop smoking well in advance of surgery.
Aspirin and certain anti-inflammatory drugs can cause increased bleeding, so you should avoid taking these medications for a period of time before surgery.
Your rhinoplasty will be performed in a hospital, you will be discharge the same day, local anesthesia and intravenous sedation are used.
A splint will been placed on the bridge of your nose for the purpose of holding the tissues in place until they have stabilized. The splint will protect your nose while you sleep and shield it from accidental bumps.
Dr Rodriguez Sierra does not use internal splints or packing.
There will be some swelling and bruising for some days, nasal splint and stitches will be removed at 5 to 7 days.
The final result will be at 6 to 12 months.
Occasionally, a touch up may be desired to further improve the results.
If this is the case, the additional procedure is usually less extensive than the original operation.
