Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular forms of cosmetic enhancement for patients in the Charlotte, NC area, also including teen rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty.
Because it is one of your most prominent features, your nose can significantly impact how you perceive your face and overall appearance. Candidates for rhinoplasty may include teens, however, the nose must be fully developed. For many people, the purpose of rhinoplasty is to improve their facial balance, so a chin implant may be a successful way to compliment rhinoplasty. Surgery is performed using general anesthesia at the state-of-the-art operative suite The Center for Facial Plastic and Laser Surgery in Charlotte, NC. Recovery typically involves moderate bruising for 7 to 10 days, temporary skin numbness, swelling for a few weeks, and very minor swelling for up to several months.
It is advised to wait at least one year after your initial rhinoplasty procedure before pursuing revision surgery. This gives the scar tissue time to reduce, which increases the likelihood of a desirable outcome. Typically, revision rhinoplasty is performed through an external approach, and often times, cartilage grafting is needed to rebuild the tip of the nose.
