A rhinoplasty, also referred to as nose reshaping, is a procedure that can improve the proportions and appearance of your nose. It can also correct breathing issues associated with odd-shaped noses. At UELC, we provide rhinoplasty surgeries as part of our full spectrum of surgical treatments and procedures.
Just like all procedures conducted in our facility, we treat our patients with the utmost care and attention. We have a team of qualified surgeons, including Dr. Narayanan Nandagopal, to help craft the beautiful face you envision.
What is Rhinoplasty?
A rhinoplasty is meant to enhance your face’s harmony. It can change the proportions and size of the nose, so it looks natural and is in line with the rest of your facial features. It can be done alone or combined with other cosmetic surgery procedures.
Why Should You Choose to Have a Rhinoplasty?
Our specialists may recommend nose reshaping in the following cases:
- Repair nose deformities from an injury
- Correct a birth deformity
- Improve breathing difficulties
- Change the shape, size, or proportions of the nose
- Smooth a prominent bump on the nose
- Restore symmetry to the nose
Preparing for Nose Reshaping Surgery
At UELC, we follow a systematic process for our cosmetic surgery procedures, which includes the following steps:
- Examine Your Medical History
We will ask questions about your medical history, including inquiring about nasal obstruction, previous surgeries, and any medications you take.
- Conduct Physical Exam
We will conduct a complete physical examination, including your facial features, the inside and outside of your nose. If necessary, we will also conduct laboratory tests, such as blood tests. This will help us determine what changes need to be made with regards to the thickness, shape, and size of your nose. It will also help us know how the modifications will impact your results and your breathing.
- Take Photographs
We will take pictures of your nose from different angles to help discuss your goals. They will be used for before-and-after assessments and kept as references during surgery.
- Discuss Your Goals & Expectations
You can discuss your expectations and goals during the consultation. You must be open with the surgeon to ensure that you get the desired results from the surgery.
What to Expect During Nose Reshaping Cosmetic Surgery
- During the Surgery
Depending on the complexity of your procedure, the cosmetic surgery for reshaping the nose may require local anesthesia with general anesthesia and sedation. We will determine the type of anesthesia best-suitable for you before the procedure. Also, based on your expectations, we will choose the right method for the surgery.
- After the Surgery
Rhinoplasty is an outpatient surgery. After the procedure, we will keep you in a recovery room and monitor you. Depending on your recovery, you may leave that day or stay overnight. We will provide you with instructions to help you recover at home.
