Questions about Rhinoplasty
Am I a good nose surgery candidate?
A good nose surgery candidate has problems with the appearance of their nose that they would like to correct. One of the best ways to determine if nose surgery is right for you is to schedule an initial consultation with Drs. Reid and Gordon in Austin, Texas.
During your initial consultation Drs. Reid and Gordon can listen to the problems that you would like to correct. We can correct many different problems that you may have with your nose, including:
- your nose appears too large for your face
- a bump on the bridge of your nose
- your nose is crooked or off-center
- the tip of your nose droops or is overly thick
How is rhinoplasty surgery performed?
Rhinoplasty is performed under general anesthesia. Incisions are then made inside the nose and possibly just under the nose, and the skin on the bridge of the nose is lifted away. Dr. Reid or Dr. Gordon then sculpts the nasal cartilage and bone. Scarring is minimal, and should be concealed within or just below the nose.
What will I look like after my nose surgery?
Immediately following the procedure, you may have black eyes, and your face may be swollen. This discoloration should be gone within a couple days, and any swelling will diminish over a few weeks. You will need to wear a splint over your nose for a few days following the procedure.
Like all surgical procedures, rhinoplasty involves certain risks including the possibility of bleeding, infection, and contour changes. You will discuss all of these risks with Drs. Reid and Gordon during your initial consultation.
Drs. Reid and Gordon will also discuss the recovery process during your initial consultation, and he will review the postoperative care instruction that you will need to follow.
