Thinking About Getting A Rhinoplasty?

Being one of the most common facial plastic surgical procedures, a Rhinoplasty, or Nose Job, is a procedure that gives our patients one of the most drastic changes to their appearance. Not only can it balance and enhance your overall facial symmetry, a Rhinoplasty, especially paired with a Septoplasty procedure, can also help the nose function more properly by helping improve your breathing. Follow along and learn why a Rhinoplasty with expert double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Jason Champagne, can do wonders for your confidence and leave you with natural looking results.

What Is A Rhinoplasty?

Our Rhinoplasty procedure, or more commonly known as a nose job, can correct an undesirable nasal appearance like a hump, bump, bulbous tip, or a wide or flat nose. Since your nose is one of the most noticed and characterizing features of your face, a rhinoplasty can be a very challenging procedure and must always be individualized since each nose is unique.

Dr. Champagne specializes in rhinoplasty and will use years of experience to help you achieve the look you desire. Some patients also experience difficulty breathing through the nose which can be caused by several factors such as a deviated septum or enlarged turbinates. During your consultation, Dr. Champagne evaluates your nose for these problems and can correct them with a septoplasty and/or turbinate reduction during your rhinoplasty procedure if necessary.

What Is The Recovery?
There are several approaches to rhinoplasty, but in general, an incision is placed either in the nose (endonasal) or externally and well hidden under the nose. A nasal cast is worn on the outside of the nose for the first week following surgery, and internal splints are also removed after seven days. Sutures, if necessary, are removed after four days. Nasal congestion should be expected for up to two to four weeks. If surgical adjustment of the nasal bones is necessary then bruising around the eyes is expected and can last two to three weeks. Swelling varies among patients, and the majority of swelling resolves over the first month. After one month, swelling, although minimal, will still be present and gradually resolves over the next six to twelve months. Because of this, final results should not be expected until one year after surgery.
