What is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty surgery is often requested to change the size or shape of the nose by removing tissue such as bone, cartilage or skin. In addition to modifying the nose for aesthetic reasons, a nose may need a correction to its interior structures to reduce snoring or sinus infections. Rhinoplasty surgery from a facial plastic surgeon is also vital for repairing congenital abnormalities or damage from trauma injuries.
What are the Benefits of Rhinoplasty?
Because the nose is one of the first things people notice about someone’s face, many individuals feel self-conscious about its size or shape. In some cases, a nose has a crooked bridge due to a poorly healed fracture or a congenital abnormality that makes it look unusual. Not only can a traditional rhinoplasty from Dr. Papel improve the appearance of your nose, it can help also help you breathe better to avoid sleep apnea at night. Rhinoplasty can also help improve a patient’s self-esteem.
How is Rhinoplasty Performed?
Patients require a careful examination from Dr. Papel to determine if rhinoplasty is a suitable plastic surgery for them. Medical images and three-dimensional computer software helps Dr. Papel understand how to repair or improve a patient’s nose. Patients require general and local anesthesia during the surgical process. Small incisions are made on the inside or outside of the nose to reach tissues and make adjustments.
