Rhinoplasty is nose surgery used to change the shape of the nose in some way. Individuals may be displeased with the appearance of their nose for a variety of reasons. Some are unhappy with the natural appearance of their nose, while others seek Rhinoplasty surgery if their nose has been injured in an accident. Some seek Rhinoplasty to improve problems they may have with their breathing. There is no right or wrong reason to seek Rhinoplasty, but all patients who are considering it should speak with their surgeon to discuss the procedure and what they hope to accomplish with it.

 

    The Rhinoplasty procedure may be used to increase or decrease the size of the nose, remove bumps or straighten the nose’s bridge, alter the tip of the nose, change the shape of the nostrils, etc. The procedure may focus on the upper part of the nose that is composed of bone, the lower portion of the nose that is composed of cartilage, or both depending on your specific goals with the procedure. You will speak with Dr. Campos regarding your goals and will go through an evaluation consisting of a physical exam and a discussion of your medical history.

 

    You will also go over the procedure and your expectations in greater detail. A more thorough understanding of the procedure will help you figure out if this is something you want to pursue further. One important aspect that should be discussed is the possible risks that are associated with Rhinoplasty. Some may get nosebleeds, others may even find it more difficult to breathe through the nose following the surgery. There is also a chance of scarring and other side effects that Dr. Campos will discuss with you prior to the procedure.

 

    Most Rhinoplasty procedures are performed in the nose, as the surgeon will maneuver the bone or cartilage from the inside. The manner in which Dr. Campos will restructure the nose depends on the goals of the procedure.

 

    You will be provided all necessary recovery instructions following the procedure. A splint or other supporting structure is likely to be placed around the nose as well to provide support at least in the initial recovery period. You will likely be discouraged from certain activities such as blowing your nose, exercising, making extreme facial expressions, and more. You may even be encouraged to eat soft or liquid foods to avoid chewing too much.

 

    If rhinoplasty sounds like a procedure you may be interested in, set up your consultation with Dr. Campos to go over your motivations, expectations, and the procedure itself to help you better understand whether it is right for you.
