The rhinoplasty is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic surgeries worldwide. In 2018 alone, over 200,000 rhinoplasties took place in the United States, (1) and the surgery’s popularity is showing no signs of waning! Many people wish for a straighter, slimmer nasal contour that helps to balance their facial features. And, although non-surgical nose jobs are a temporary option, the only permanent choice is rhinoplasty.
The shape and size of the nose can greatly impact our appearance and self-confidence. So whether you are unhappy with the size, shape, or proportion of your nose, rhinoplasty offers a solution to enhance its aesthetic appeal.
Correcting a Dorsal Hump
One common concern that can be addressed through rhinoplasty is the dorsal hump, which refers to a prominent bump or irregularity along the bridge of the nose. By carefully sculpting and reshaping the nasal structure, we can create a smooth and harmonious contour that complements your facial features.
Nasal Tip Contouring
The shape and projection of the nasal tip play a vital role in defining the overall appearance of the nose. Many individuals may feel that their nasal tip is too bulbous, droopy, or lacks definition. By meticulously sculpting the cartilage and tissue of the nasal tip, our skilled doctors can refine its shape, creating a more attractive and balanced appearance. Whether you desire a more refined, upturned, or rotated nasal tip, our team will work closely with you to achieve your desired outcome.
Rhinoplasty is not only sought after for cosmetic reasons but also for functional purposes, such as correcting breathing difficulties caused by a deviated septum or other structural abnormalities. Our skilled surgeons have extensive experience in performing septorhinoplasty, a combination of rhinoplasty and septoplasty, to improve both the form and function of the nose. Similarly, those who have experienced nose trauma or injury can benefit from rhinoplasty to restore the shape and function of the nose.
In some cases, patients may require revision rhinoplasty to correct unsatisfactory outcomes from previous surgeries. Our experienced team employs advanced techniques to address complications, improve aesthetics, and restore confidence.
Rhinoplasty is considered one of the most – if not the most – technically challenging cosmetic surgeries. There are two commonly-used techniques.
Open Technique – The open technique involves creating a small incision on the columella, the strip of tissue between the nostrils, allowing for maximum visibility and access to the nasal structures. (2) This approach is ideal for complex cases or when significant reshaping of the nose is required.
Closed Technique – On the other hand, the closed technique involves making incisions inside the nostrils, resulting in no visible external scarring. This technique is suitable for patients seeking minor modifications or improvements to their nasal appearance.
Benefits of Rhinoplasty
Rhinoplasty has the power to improve your overall appearance and increase your self-confidence. A well-proportioned and symmetrical nose can significantly enhance your facial harmony, making you feel more attractive and self-assured. Our goal is always to create natural-looking results that complement your unique features, ensuring that you feel like the best version of yourself.
Beyond the aesthetic benefits, rhinoplasty can also correct breathing problems and improve nasal function. If you struggle with obstructed airflow, chronic snoring, or sinus congestion, our surgeons can address these issues during the procedure, allowing you to breathe easier and experience improved quality of life.
Candidates for Rhinoplasty
If you have ever wanted a new nose, you can achieve it with a rhinoplasty procedure! Candidates for rhinoplasty are individuals who desire to enhance the appearance of their nose permanently. They are in good overall health without any underlying illnesses or conditions that could adversely affect their treatment.
It is vital that patients be aware of the pre-and post-operative requirements, including adequate preparation and diligent aftercare. As with any cosmetic procedure, rhinoplasty candidates should have a positive attitude to surgery and realistic expectations for their cosmetic outcomes.
Personal Consultation in Miami
During your consultation, we will conduct a thorough assessment to determine the specific aspects of your nose that you would like to address. This will allow us to develop a surgical plan tailored to your unique needs and goals.
To gain a comprehensive understanding of your nasal structure, we will perform a detailed examination of your nose. This includes evaluating the internal structures, assessing the symmetry, and analyzing the proportions in relation to your facial features. Additionally, we will review your medical history to ensure your safety and identify any potential risks or contraindications. Facial analysis is also an integral part of our approach to rhinoplasty. By considering your unique facial features and proportions, we can create a harmonious balance and achieve natural-looking results that enhance your overall appearance.
Our skilled surgeons will take the time to discuss the potential outcomes of the procedure and ensure that you have a clear understanding of what can realistically be achieved. Open communication and collaboration are key to achieving optimal results that align with your vision.
At Miracle Mile Cosmetic Center, we are committed to providing our patients with the highest level of care and achieving their desired results through rhinoplasty. For more information, call us at (305) 901-2388 or complete a simple inquiry form on our website to get started.
Getting Ready for a Rhinoplasty Procedure
- Preoperative Instructions: Once your surgery is scheduled, you will receive detailed preoperative instructions. It is crucial to follow these instructions diligently to optimize your results and minimize any potential risks. These instructions may include discontinuing the use of blood thinners, supplements, and certain medications as advised by Dr. Miracle.
- Nicotine-Free Lifestyle: In the weeks leading up to your rhinoplasty and throughout your recovery, it is vital to refrain from nicotine use. Nicotine can impair the healing process and increase the risk of complications. Therefore, it is recommended to stop smoking or using any nicotine products to ensure a successful outcome.
- Medications: Fill the prescriptions for pain medication and antibiotics prior to your procedure to have them readily available post-surgery. This will help manage any discomfort and prevent infections during your recovery period.
- Transportation and Support: If sedation or general anesthesia is planned for your rhinoplasty, it is essential to arrange for transportation home after the surgery. Additionally, having a trusted friend or family member accompany you on the day of the procedure can provide emotional support and assistance during your recovery.
- Time Off and Rest: Plan ahead and coordinate time off from work and social commitments to allow yourself adequate time to rest and recover. Rhinoplasty involves a period of healing, and it is crucial to prioritize your well-being during this time.
What Happens After My Surgery?
Swelling and bruising are common in the initial days following the procedure, but these will gradually subside over time. Our team will provide detailed instructions to facilitate a smooth recovery.
During the first week of recovery, you will need to rest and limit physical activities. Swelling and bruising will be at their peak, but this is normal and expected. You may experience nasal congestion due to internal swelling. Your surgeon may use nasal packing or splints to support the newly shaped nose and promote proper healing.
By the second week, most patients see a significant improvement in swelling and bruising. You may start to feel more comfortable and resume some light activities. Nasal congestion should gradually improve, but it is common to experience mild stuffiness.
As you enter the third week of your recovery, you will notice a further reduction in swelling and bruising. Breathing through the nose should become easier, although some mild congestion may still persist. You may be advised to avoid strenuous exercises and contact sports during this time.
Fourth Week and Beyond
By the fourth week, you should see a major improvement in your nasal appearance. However, it’s important to note that residual swelling may still be present, especially at the tip of the nose. This swelling will continue to subside gradually over the next several months. Although swelling will subside considerably in the weeks that follow, the results of some rhinoplasties take longer than most other cosmetic surgeries to settle, up to one year. We will take time to ensure your results are progressing well with follow-up appointments at our office.
