Modern rhinoplasty techniques enable patients to enhance the shape or size of their nose without having to worry about unsightly scarring. At Rosenthal Cosmetic Plastic Surgery and Dermatology, we offer rhinoplasty to men and women living in Boynton Beach, Delray Beach and Wellington, FL.
What is a Rhinoplasty?
A rhinoplasty, often referred to as nose surgery or a nose job, is a facial surgery that is used to adjust the shape or size of the nose. With a rhinoplasty, patients can address any undesired qualities of the nose, enhancing the shape of the nose to better complement their other features and improve facial balance. Although many patients choose to have rhinoplasty as an elective cosmetic procedure, it can also be used as a reconstructive surgery technique. In these cases, rhinoplasty can be used to correct breathing difficulties and restore the shape of the nose.
How Much Does a Rhinoplasty Cost?
The cost of a rhinoplasty will vary based on the unique needs and treatment goals of the patient. During your consultation, we take many things into consideration in order to design a personalized treatment plan that will optimize your results and treatment experience. Once this treatment plan is determined, we will be able to provide you with a clear breakdown of the costs associated with your rhinoplasty procedure. For your convenience, we accept cash, checks, credit cards, and financing through CareCredit®.
What Can I Expect During the Rhinoplasty Procedure?
Before a rhinoplasty, we will use anesthesia to ensure that the patient remains safe and comfortable throughout the treatment. During the procedure, incisions are made either inside the nostrils or along the base of the nose. Through these incisions, adjustments will be made to the cartilage and bone to produce the desired results. A rhinoplasty can take a few hours depending on the extent of surgery required.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from a Rhinoplasty?
After a rhinoplasty, patients can expect some moderate swelling initially. It can take a few months for this swelling to dissipate and reveal the full results of treatment. Once the body heals, patients can enjoy enhanced facial balance and symmetry thanks to precise adjustments made to the nose. The results from rhinoplasty can be permanent.
What is the Recovery Period Like Following a Rhinoplasty?
Due to the invasive nature of a rhinoplasty surgery, patients often have to take time away from work and other activities while they recover. Dr. Rosenthal will inform patients how to care for themselves as they heal, which may include important instructions regarding hygiene, diet and daily activities.
