Rhinoplasty – Charlotte, NC

Different noses, different nose jobs

Rhinoplasty, or the nose job, has consistently been one of the most popular forms of cosmetic surgery over the past few years. Every nose job is different, starting with a unique nose and ending with a specific outcome. To change the shape of the nose, the surgeon remolds the bone and cartilage under the skin. To get the best result, the incisions of rhinoplasty are usually done inside the nose, where no one can see them.

The skin on the nose is thin in some places, thicker in others. As a general rule, the thicker the skin, the thinner the cartilage underneath. This again means that nose jobs must be tailored to the patient. And in some cases the best way to improve the nose is by giving the patient a chin implant. This gives balance to the face, enhancing the effect of the nose job. About one in five patients seeking rhinoplasty should consider a chin implant. After surgery, there tends to be swelling, moderate bruising and sometimes temporary skin numbness. All of these effects go away fairly quickly — the bruising fades within a week to ten days, while the swelling can last for several weeks.
