Rhinoplasty generally refers to reshaping of the nose. The procedure can be performed for functional (breathing) or cosmetic reasons, but is often performed with both goals in mind.

What is the difference between an open and closed rhinoplasty?

Open rhinoplasty involves an incision on the columellar skin of the nose leaving a small but permanent scar on the nose while a closed rhinoplasty involves incisions only inside of the nose leaving no scar on the skin.

What can I expect after a rhinoplasty?

After a rhinoplasty the patient usually has a nasal splint, which will be left in place for 1-2 weeks and also possibly some internal nasal packing or splints if needed. You will notice the improvement in your nose with each passing day. Most of the edema and swelling in your nose will subside within 14 days and it will be possible for you to see the final results within 12 months.

What is involved in a revision rhinoplasty?

A secondary rhinoplasty may be required and occurs 10-15% of the time after primary rhinoplasty for a multitude of reasons. You can expect the second surgery to be longer; more involved and likely necessitate the need for harvesting cartilage for grafting to rebuild the nose.

Who should I consult with regarding my facial Aesthetic/Cosmetic Surgery?

There is a select small group of surgeons whom should be performing facial cosmetic surgery and even fewer whom should be performing rhinoplasty. This group of plastic surgeons has an extensive expertise in facial cosmetic surgery. At the Atlantic Center we have not one but two surgeonsโ€™ with extensive training operating on the face and will be happy to help you with your facial aesthetic or rhinoplasty needs.
