Whether you have issues breathing, suffered a trauma, or have just never liked the way your nose looks, rhinoplasty in Tampa may be the answer. This straightforward cosmetic surgery is one of the most commonly done. It can help you achieve facial symmetry, boost your self-esteem, and maybe even help you breathe easier!
What to Expect with Rhinoplasty
This procedure is typically done on an outpatient basis under anesthesia. In most cases, it can be completed in 1-2 hours. During the surgery, openings will be made in between and/or inside of the nostrils. The cartilage and bone will be reshaped and the openings sealed. If need be, additional cartilage can be harvested from the ears or deep within the nose. Some people choose to have cheek augmentation, chin augmentation, or other procedures done at the same time. After your procedure, you will be given a list of post-op instructions that are important to follow to ensure proper healing. One of the most important things will be sleeping with your head elevated.
What Can Rhinoplasty Address?
One of the reasons rhinoplasty is so popular in Tampa is because it can address a wide range of issues. This procedure can help:
- Make the nostrils narrower
- Straighten out the bridge of the nose
- Correct a curve or hook of the tip of the nose
- Make the bridge appear wider or narrower
- Make the nostrils appear more symmetrical
- Bring balance to your face
- Correct a deviated septum
Who Should Consider Rhinoplasty?
If you are having this procedure done for cosmetic reasons, it is important to wait until your face is done growing. This surgery is appropriate for a wide range of people. It is helpful to be a healthy non-smoker. This will help your recovery go smoother and reduce your risk of complications. It is also important to have realistic expectations and a positive outlook.
The results of this surgery are considered permanent. It is important to be sure that you want to undergo a dramatic change before deciding to have rhinoplasty done. Be aware that natural aging may eventually change the shape of your nose.
