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:
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.
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 Knoxville plastic surgery office for a consultation today.
