Rhinoplasty Q & A
What is a rhinoplasty?
A rhinoplasty is what is commonly referred to as a “nose job.” It’s a procedure that helps to reshape the nose and, if necessary, correct structural problems that cause difficulty breathing.
Rhinoplasty can be performed as a non-surgical procedure or a surgical procedure. With any rhinoplasty, it’s important to make sure you’re in the hands of a qualified, experienced surgeon.
What is a non-surgical rhinoplasty?
A nonsurgical rhinoplasty is a good option if you want to correct minor imperfections. The procedure is fast, results are visible immediately, and there is little to no recovery period.
Using injectables ― neuromodulators (such as Botox) and dermal fillers (like Juvéderm) – Dr. Obasi can relax an upturned nose or smooth the contours of your nose from bridge to tip. Only local anesthetic is needed (if any), and you may return to work or other activities right away.
When is non-surgical rhinoplasty appropriate?
A consultation with Dr. Obasi is the best way to determine if you’re a good candidate for the non-surgical rhinoplasty. You may qualify if you:
- Have a small bump on the bridge of your nose
- Want to make a slight alteration to the nasal tip
- Are interested in “test driving” a change in your nose shape
How long do results last?
If you opt for a non-surgical rhinoplasty, you can expect your results to last several months.
With a traditional, surgical rhinoplasty, you may experience swelling for several weeks, and your full results may not be entirely visible for up to 12 months. While the procedure is permanent, gravity and age can always cause changes in the face, which may shift the shape of your nose slightly.
Dr. Obasi will give you instructions on how to care for your new nose, as well as advice on what you should avoid until you’re fully healed (like contact sports, sun exposure, etc.)
