The nose is the focal point of the face; the most prominent facial feature. Naturally then, the length, width, proportions, and profile of the nose is critically influential in determining the attitude, and balance of the face. It is no wonder that any imperfect characteristics of the nose is not tolerated well and many patients discuss their options with us.
Embarrassment, low confidence, difficulty in formative years, or even a more mature appreciation of proper delicate balance are the motivating factors for having nose altering surgery.
A Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure designed to sculpt and reshape the nose. Abnormalities such as a crooked or humped nasal bridge, a bulbous or stubby nasal tip, as well as any other issue with shape and size can be addressed through a Rhinoplasty. The Rhinoplasty includes as many or as few small alterations as needed to tweak the appearance of the nose so that it settles into its proper relationship with all the other facial features.
Advances in technique as well as understanding of the nose, allow us to perform the Rhinoplasty more safely and effectively than ever.
The Rhinoplasty Procedure:
Rhinoplasty procedures are performed at an accredited outpatient surgery center, with a fantastic anesthesia staff. The Rhinoplasty procedure will take between one and three hours to perform.
There are many possible maneuvers possible in the Rhinoplasty surgical plan. At your consultation, Doctor Basile will discuss with you, after understanding what your objections and goals are, as to which exact plan is right for you.
The Rhinoplasty Recovery:
The initial recovery from a Rhinoplasty will take generally one to two weeks; although most patients are able to return to work or school just a few days after their procedure. Swelling and bruising are common, most of which will diminish after just a few weeks.
The Revision or “Secondary” Rhinoplasty:
When a Rhinoplasty does not provide the results that were first expected, a Revision Rhinoplasty may be required. This is a reparative surgery, often used, first, to correct physical or functional concerns resulting from the initial Rhinoplasty, and second, to further improve on the effects sought.
Use a trusted and experienced surgeon. Dr. Basile has over 20 years of Rhinoplasty experience and is Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
