Rhinoplasty (Nose Job) In Salt Lake City

Rhinoplasty is surgery that changes the shape, size and proportions of the nose. What is considered ideal is very subjective and varies across various ethnicities and subcultures. Nevertheless, most patients strive to achieve an appearance that is harmonious and in proportion with other facial features. This commonly includes a nasal dorsum of appropriate height, and a tip that is balanced and more refined. In addition to a desire to change the appearance of the nose, some patients may seek to also improve breathing.

How Does Rhinoplasty Work?

To understand how a rhinoplasty is performed, one must first have a basic knowledge of the nasal anatomy.

The lower third of the nose consist of the lower lateral cartilages, which define the size, shape and projection of the tip of the nose. Dividing the nostrils is the nasal septum. Together, the conformation of the lower lateral cartilages and septum can contribute greatly to a patient’s overall satisfaction with their nose. Rhinoplasty seeks to change the shape and size of the bone, cartilage, skin or all three.

A rhinoplasty is usually done as an outpatient procedure, meaning there is no overnight stay. The procedure is usually done under general anesthesia for airway protection, though local anesthesia with sedation can be considered for minor tip alterations. In either case, a patient should have very little awareness during the procedure.

Recovering From Rhinoplasty

After a rhinoplasty, patients usually wear a nasal splint for the first week. Swelling and some bruising around the eyes can be expected. This will begin to improve after the third day and last up to two weeks or more. You will be significantly recovered by 4-6 weeks. The final shape of your nose will be apparent will be apparent at 6 months.

Strenuous activity should be avoided for three to six weeks after surgery, but you may return to social activities as soon as two to three weeks.
