Will My Rhinoplasty Leave Visible Scars?

Thankfully, a variety of cosmetic and even functional issues of the nose can be remedied with rhinoplasty. During the consultation, I will carefully examine your nose and create a treatment plan to give you a nose you can be proud of.

What Problems Can Rhinoplasty Solve?

Patients seek rhinoplasty for many different reasons. In general, you are a good candidate for rhinoplasty if you’re a non-smoker in good physical health who also:

  • Has a bumpy nose that lacks smooth contours
  • Has a crooked nose
  • Feels the size of your nose is either too large or too small for your face
  • Has difficulty breathing out of one or both sides of your nose
  • Simply doesn’t like the appearance of your nose

During the consultation, I will talk with you to understand what your specific issues are, examining your nose both inside and out, and craft a plan for treatment that addresses both the aesthetic and functional problems you have with your nose in a single surgery.

Recovery and Scarring

Your rhinoplasty will be done under general anesthesia in an outpatient surgery center and will typically last only 2-3 hours. You’ll be able to return home the same day as your procedure, with soft supporting material inside your nose and a splint or nose guard to protect the outside.

Though there will be noticeable swelling and possibly bruising on the outside of your nose after surgery, this usually subsides in only a week’s time. The scars that are left are about 5mm long underneath the tip of your nose – totally hidden from view, leaving no lasting reminders of your surgery. If you’re considering rhinoplasty to improve the look or airflow of your nose, call our office for a consultation today.
