The shape and size of your nose have a big impact on your overall facial appearance.
Whether it’s a hump on the bridge, a wide nose, or breathing issues from structural or medical problems, cosmetic procedures can offer a solution for many patients. In today’s world, these procedures (known as rhinoplasty) have both surgical and non-surgical options for nose reshaping.
So whether you’re looking for a complete surgical makeover or a less invasive procedure, Revalla Plastic Surgery and Medical Aesthetics has you covered.
Traditional Rhinoplasty: A Surgical Approach
Traditional rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that alters the structure of the nose to give patients a more balanced and proportional appearance.
Dr. Nguyen at Revalla Surgery and Medical Aesthetics can help tailor a surgical plan to address each patient’s specific needs. That could mean reducing the width, changing the shape of the tip, or correcting a deviated septum. Surgery usually takes two to four hours and requires incisions inside the nostrils or along the base of the nose. Recovery generally involves swelling, bruising, and some drainage, but the results are usually permanent.
Liquid rhinoplasty is a minimally invasive alternative to traditional surgery. It involves injecting dermal filler to modify the nose’s appearance. This is especially suitable for those looking for temporary changes or those hesitant to undergo surgery. While liquid rhinoplasty can’t reduce the size of the nose, it can add volume in specific areas to create a more harmonious silhouette. The effects generally last up to two years.
Recovery and Aftercare
The post-op experience differs depending on whether you opt for surgical or non-surgical treatment. Surgical rhinoplasty patients can expect facial swelling and bruising, with recovery taking a few weeks to a year for the final result to manifest. On the other hand, liquid rhinoplasty typically has minimal downtime, allowing you to return to your normal activities almost immediately.
