Candidates for Nose Surgery

Nose surgery can help individuals who are bothered by any of the following:

  • An oversized nose

  • A crooked or off-center nose

  • A bump on the bridge of the nose

  • Enlarged, flared or asymmetrical nostrils

  • An upturned, droopy or bulbous nasal tip

Sometimes rhinoplasty candidates have trouble breathing through the nose due to structural abnormalities. In many cases, rhinoplasty surgery can address anatomical and cosmetic imperfections to improve both the appearance and the breathing function of the nose.

If you are a teenager considering nose surgery, it is important that your nose has stopped growing. (This typically occurs after the age of 13 in girls and 15 in boys.) Operating on a nose that is still developing can jeopardize the cosmetic result.

As a candidate, you should be in good health, not smoke and understand the potential risks and rewards of surgery. Dr. Roham will work with you to determine whether your expectations of rhinoplasty are reasonable. It is crucial that you have realistic goals for surgery, lest you end up disappointed.

Treatment Details & Recovering from Nose Surgery

Nose surgery is performed on an outpatient basis with anesthesia. The particular surgical technique Dr. Roham uses is based on the corrections that need to be made.

Dr. Roham may use the open or closed technique. In the open technique, he creates the surgical incisions across the strip of skin separating the nostrils (the columella). In the closed technique, he creates the incisions entirely within the nose without any external incisions. Through the incisions, Dr. Roham removes or adjusts the underlying bone and cartilage to achieve the necessary nasal contours. If necessary, he can use grafts from the septum to add structure to the nose or reshape it.

After the surgery, Dr. Roham will place an external splint to support the nasal tissues as they heal.

Recovering From Nose Surgery

Expect some swelling and facial bruising after rhinoplasty. The aftereffects may be significant at first, but they will gradually resolve in the days and weeks following surgery. Dr. Roham encourages you to keep your head elevated at all times during your recovery to manage the swelling. Applying cold compresses to the face can also help minimize inflammation.

You should plan to take one to two weeks off from work or school to recover from surgery. Dr. Roham will advise when it is safe to resume exercise, sports and other physical activities.
