The nose is at the center of the face, often making it the first thing people look at. If you are unhappy with the shape or size of your nose, or if a deviated septum is hindering your breathing, you may be able to benefit from a rhinoplasty.
A Rhinoplasty or nose surgery is performed on patients who wish to change the size, shape or angle of their nose. A Rhinoplasty may also be performed to remove nasal blockage that hinders breathing. Dr. Basile can improve the overall look of your nose with this procedure by removing a bump, grafting cartilage, or using other techniques to transform and smooth the nose based on your goals.
Am I a good candidate?
If you have a nasal defect that gives you troubled breathing or are self-conscious about the shape and size of your nose, you may be a good candidate for a rhinoplasty. You must be in good health and a non-smoker to be a candidate for this procedure.
How is a Rhinoplasty procedure performed?
A rhinoplasty procedure can be performed in various ways based on your aesthetic goals. A consultation with Dr. Basile will allow for discussion around those goals and give you a better idea of the procedure required to help you achieve your desired results. In many cases, much is discovered when Dr. Basile makes the incisions and has a better understanding of your bone and cartilage structure.
Results and Recovery
Incisions for this procedure are commonly hidden inside or underneath the nose, therefore visible scarring is not visible or nonexistent. Directly following your procedure, Dr. Basile will have you bandaged and wearing a nasal splint to protect your nose. During your follow-up appointment within the first two weeks, your surgical packing will be removed. Patients typically return to normal activities within three weeks, but you should avoid exercise until cleared to do so.
