Thousands of people undergo rhinoplasty in Dallas. Rhinoplasty is commonly known as a nose job. It is performed as either a cosmetic or reconstructing surgical procedure for correcting or reshaping the nose.
Some people will also choose to have rhinoplasty in Dallas for cosmetic reasons. It could be they want to remove an unsightly bump on the bridge of the nose, narrow wide nostrils, change the slope of the nose, narrow or widen the nasal bridge, or correct the proportions of the nose.
Benefits of Rhinoplasty
In addition to making the nose more symmetrical, rhinoplasty can help to improve how the nose functions. Many people who have breathing issues, trauma to the nose or a nasal birth defect can improve the function of the nose with rhinoplasty.
There are several different types of procedures the surgeon can perform.
Closed rhinoplasty is performed under general anesthesia in which surgical incision is hidden after the patient heals. This procedure produces no visible scarring.
Open rhinoplasty is a procedure in which the incision is made in the small strip of skin between the nostrils. This procedure leaves a very small, unnoticeable scar under the nose.
Rhinoplasty in Dallas is a safe surgical procedure and can typically be combined with other cosmetic procedures such as a chin augmentation. Combining other surgical procedures with rhinoplasty can bring balance to a disproportionate face.
Recovery from rhinoplasty surgery is typically one to two weeks. Most patients will experience swelling, pain, and tenderness at the surgical site. Most of the swelling will be gone within four to six weeks.
There are many options available to patients who wish to undergo rhinoplasty in Dallas. Always talk to your physician to discuss which option is the best for you and which one best meets the needs to correct your nasal issues.
