Rhinoplasty

These days, it seems like we all know of someone who has had a "nose job." When celebrities undergo this popular procedure, it usually makes headlines in the tabloids. That is because even subtle changes in the shape of the nose can have a dramatic impact on a person's appearance — a fact that Dr. Bogdan's rhinoplasty patients from the Fort Worth area have seen firsthand.

If you are thinking about rhinoplasty, request a consultation with Dr. Michael Bogdan, a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in rhinoplasty.

What is Rhinoplasty?

As the nose is one of the most prominent features of the face, it has a significant influence on our overall countenance. If you are unhappy with your nose, it is something that affects you every time you look in the mirror. Rhinoplasty, or surgery to reshape the nose, is a relatively common plastic surgery procedure, and one of the oldest. In fact, modern cosmetic rhinoplasty has been around for over 100 years.

Women and men often choose this procedure for any combination of the following improvements:

  • Reducing or increasing the size of the nose
  • Changing the shape of the tip or the bridge
  • Narrowing the span of the nostrils
  • Changing the angle between the nose and upper lip

To help you decide exactly what changes you would like to have made, Dr. Bogdan likes to utilize 3D computer imaging to allow you to visualize potential outcomes. Dr. Bogdan uses Canfield Scientific's VECTRA M3 imager and Face Sculptor software to assist with consultation at his Southlake office.

Choosing Rhinoplasty

Depending on your anatomy and the desired changes, the operation can be performed using the closed rhinoplasty technique, which leaves no visible scars, or the open technique, which leaves a small scar on the underside of the nose. Most "nose job" patients from Fort Worth and surrounding areas choose to be put under under general anesthesia. It is normally not necessary to be intubated for the procedure, as a soft cushion airway is generally sufficient. The procedure can take from 1 to 4 hours, with the closed approach taking less time than open procedures.

When choosing rhinoplasty, many people also choose to have other facial cosmetic surgery procedures performed to achieve a more comprehensive makeover. These procedures may include forehead lift, eyelid surgery, neck lift, and facelift.

Recovery and Results

For 5 to 7 days after the surgery, your nose will be dressed in a splint, which maintains the shape of the nose as it heals. Swelling and bruising of the cheeks and eyes is common within the first 24 hours of surgery, but cool compresses will provide some relief. Discomfort after surgery is commonly due to nasal congestion, which is usually caused by swelling inside the nose. Pain is generally minimal, and should be well controlled with either prescribed or over the counter medications.

Within 2 to 4 weeks, swelling should become almost unnoticeable, but subtle changes in the appearance of the nose will continue to occur over the course of a year. To see the results of this popular plastic surgery, view some rhinoplasty before and after photos of Dr. Bogdan's patients.
