If you’ve considered reshaping features of your nose you aren’t pleased with, you’re not alone. Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures because it’s incredibly versatile and successful in reshaping the nose. Because your nose is such a central feature to your face’s overall balance, even subtle changes can make a big difference. Dr. Adam Stein is a rhinoplasty specialist performing nose jobs on thousands of patients who’ve loved their new nose.
How Does Rhinoplasty Work?
As a rhinoplasty specialist, Dr. Stein is Raleigh’s go-to surgeon if you’re concerned about the shape, size or function of your nose. Rhinoplasty, in broad terms, can correct a bump or dip on the bridge, the width of your nose, the shape and position of its tip, and the appearance of your nostrils. It can also improve breathing functionality if you have a deviated septum that should be corrected. It’s highly individualized to your specific features, and men and women from all over the US come to Dr. Stein for his expertise with rhinoplasty.
Types of Rhinoplasty
There are a variety of rhinoplasties that may be right for you. Dr. Stein specializes in rhinoplasty, therefore, he has a wealth of experience in the various techniques used to reshape the nose. Below are a few of the types of rhinoplasties available at Stein Plastic Surgery.
Open rhinoplasty is the most common technique characterized by a small incision between the nostrils in the strip of skin called the columella. With this incision, Dr. Stein can access all the structures of your nose to make corrections to its shape, size, or position.
Closed rhinoplasty is often referred to as scarless rhinoplasty because the incisions are made inside the nostrils. Dr. Stein can still correct aspects of your bridge and nasal tip, but the closed rhinoplasty is reserved for patients who don’t require much remodeling to achieve their aesthetic goals.
Ethnic rhinoplasty preserves unique features to you and your heritage without compromising surgical skill and cosmetic improvement. These procedures may take more time to complete, but Dr. Stein’s understanding of the structural foundation of ethnic features serves his diverse patients well.
Revision rhinoplasty takes an elevated level of knowledge and skill to complete. Many patients come to Dr. Stein unhappy with a previous rhinoplasty procedure and looking to improve their appearance. Special consideration must be given to the initial remodeling to achieve your desired look. Dr. Stein is well-versed in what makes for a successful revision even under challenging situations.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Rhinoplasty?
Dr. Stein is a rhinoplasty specialist who has helped countless patients meet their aesthetic goals by creating beautiful noses for them. Patients interested in having a rhinoplasty should set up a comprehensive consultation with Dr. Stein to see if they qualify as candidates.
Ideal patients are healthy, have no serious medical conditions, and don’t smoke or can remain smoke-free for months to allow the tissues to heal properly. Ideal patients are also realistic about what cosmetic changes can do for their appearance. There is no minimum age, but your facial growth should be nearly complete.
What is Rhinoplasty Surgery Like?
Rhinoplasties are very unique to the patient, but they are all carried out on an outpatient basis in Stein Plastic Surgery’s state-of-the-art accredited surgical suite. Dr. Stein will perform your procedure according to the treatment plan you’ve created together. When you awaken, you’ll be allowed to recover in the familiarity and comfort of your home. Most patients return to work after 7-10 days.
What Results Can I Expect From My Rhinoplasty ?
Your results will be immediately visible, though some swelling and bruising may partially disrupt them. While it can take up to 1 year for your tissues to settle into their final position, your outcome will be noticeable in the first few weeks. Your nose will bring balance to your other facial features, and the aspects of it that made you self-conscious should be gone. You can live with confidence knowing your nose is flattering to your overall appearance and no longer stands out.
