Rhinoplasty Boston

Rhinoplasty-stock-imageMost people are unhappy with something about their physical appearance, for many of these people the subject of their grief is their nose. Nose dissatisfaction is generally divided into one of two parts: aesthetic or functional. On occasion, the dissatisfaction is equally distributed between the two. Rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, can improve almost any nose issue.

Let’s take a look at some of the common complaints nose surgery can address:

  • Creates a more normal aesthetic and better functionality after trauma or injury
  • Adjusts the size so that it is more proportionate to the other facial features
  • Adjusts the width of the nose
  • Removes bumps and indentations
  • Adjust issues with the shape of the tip of the nose
  • Improves nostril size and shape
  • Realigns the nose for better symmetry
  • Clears the airway of obstructions and abnormalities for easier breathing

Nose surgery is best performed on patients 13 years and older who are in good physical and mental health, non-smokers, and have realistic expectations for the procedure and its results.

Now, let’s take a look at what the procedure itself will entail:

  • Anesthesia will be administered either intravenously with sedation or through general anesthesia.
  • Incisions will be made either inside of the nose (closed procedure) or across the narrow strip of tissue between the nostrils (open procedure).
  • The nose will then be reshaped to the desired result, often through cartilage grafted from another part of the body. If the obstruction is the issue, the nose will be straightened and aligned to clear the airway.
  • The incisions will be closed and the nose will be put in a splint.
  • Swelling will continue to go down over the following weeks, though it may take up to a year for your final results to settle.

As with all surgical procedures, there are risks. Discuss these with Dr. Darrow during your consultation. When you go home and as you continue to heal, you will have certain restrictions you will need to adhere to have a safe and speedy recovery. If you experience chest pain or shortness of breath, it is important to seek medical attention immediately.

Am I a good candidate for rhinoplasty?

If you are looking to enhance the appearance of your nose or correct functional issues such as breathing problems, rhinoplasty might be suitable for you. Ideal candidates are generally healthy, non-smokers, and have realistic expectations about the outcomes.

How long does rhinoplasty surgery take in Boston?

The duration of rhinoplasty surgery can vary, but it typically takes between 1 to 3 hours. The length of the procedure depends on the complexity of the surgery and the specific techniques used.

Will there be any visible scarring after rhinoplasty in Boston?

Rhinoplasty surgery is designed to minimize visible scarring. Any scars that do occur are usually well-concealed within the natural contours of the nose or hidden inside the nostrils.

What are the potential risks and complications of rhinoplasty in Boston?

As with any surgery, rhinoplasty carries risks such as infection, bleeding, or adverse reactions to anesthesia. Specific risks include nasal septal perforation, difficulty breathing, and dissatisfaction with aesthetic outcomes. A detailed consultation with Dr. Darrow can help you understand all potential risks.

When will I see the final results of rhinoplasty in Boston?

While initial swelling subsides within a few weeks, it can take up to a year for the new nasal contour to fully refine. During this time, you may notice gradual changes in the appearance of your nose as it settles into its new shape.

Can rhinoplasty correct functional issues with my nose, such as breathing problems?

Yes, rhinoplasty can address structural deformities that cause breathing issues, such as a deviated septum. It’s important to discuss all functional concerns with Dr. Darrow during the consultation.

Will rhinoplasty change the overall appearance of my face?

Rhinoplasty can alter your nasal shape, size, or angle, subtly enhancing your facial harmony. The goal is to achieve balance and proportion, complementing your unique facial features.

How long do the results of rhinoplasty last in Boston?

The results of rhinoplasty are generally permanent. While natural aging processes affect the appearance of the face over time, the changes made during rhinoplasty will typically last a lifetime.
