Rhinoplasty Q & A

What is rhinoplasty?

Sometimes called a nose job, rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that changes the structure of your nose. This procedure can alter your nose’s size, shape, or proportions to accomplish one of the following:

  • Treat breathing problems due to structural abnormalities
  • Repair deformities from an injury
  • Correct an issue present at birth
  • Improve aesthetic concerns

If you need surgery to correct a deviated septum or another structural issue that impairs your breathing, you may be able to get a nose job at the same time. You can discuss this option with your Lakeshore ENT surgeon.

 

What problems can rhinoplasty treat?

Rhinoplasty can treat several functional and cosmetic nasal issues, such as:

  • Disproportionate nose size
  • An asymmetric nose
  • A profile that shows visible bumps or depressions in the nasal bridge
  • Large, wide, or upturned nostrils
  • An enlarged, bulbous, drooping, upturned, or hooked nasal tip

The team at Lakeshore ENT determines if a rhinoplasty is right for you during your consultation.

 

What should I expect from a rhinoplasty procedure?

The compassionate and professional Lakeshore ENT facial plastic surgery team understands that any facial surgery is complex and multidimensional. Before you go into surgery, they thoroughly discuss your concerns and aesthetic goals. They also prioritize your comfort and satisfaction, so they’re happy to answer all your questions as thoroughly as possible.

The Lakeshore ENT specialists use the most cutting-edge technology available, including computer imaging that illustrates how potential changes to your nose will affect your overall appearance. With this technology, you can rest assured your surgeon knows what you want.

Only the most highly skilled, board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeons are on staff at Lakeshore ENT. They’re affiliated with Henry Ford Macomb, St. John, and Beaumont hospitals, but for your added convenience, you can take advantage of the in-office surgical suite at the Lakeshore ENT office in Macomb Township.

After your rhinoplasty procedure, your surgeon bandages your nose and provides aftercare instructions. While swelling generally subsides within a few weeks, it may take up to a year to see full results.
