Sometimes we are unsure of the solution to cosmetic problems like your nose being cosmetically unattractive or unshapely compared to your other facial features. You will be glad to know there are procedures to fix this. Rhinoplasty, or nose reshaping, can help you have the perfect nose you’ve always wanted. This allows you to correct any birth defects, disease or injury that may have resulted in an abnormal appearance of the nose. Rhinoplasty helps produce a more attractive nasal shape, with a better proportion to your other facial features. This procedure can also be used to successfully correct large nostrils. Dr. Soler has been performing rhinoplasty surgeries for many patients in Tampa and the surrounding areas such as Clearwater and St. Petersburg, FL. Dr. Soler has the experience and board certified qualifications to perform your next cosmetic surgery.
How is a rhinoplasty procedure performed?
Dr. Soler performs rhinoplasty under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis. Any initial discomfort after the surgery is controlled using oral medicine. Most of the bruising and swelling subsides gradually over a period of two to four weeks after surgery. You will see some results of the surgery showing up within about three weeks, but the complete result will be evident in about a year or 14 months following surgery. To make the nose more symmetrical with the rest of the face, other procedures may be performed in conjunction with a rhinoplasty, such as a facelift or ear surgery.
Will my nose job be covered by insurance?
Nose reshaping done for cosmetic reasons is not covered under insurance. This procedure may be covered, at least partially, if it is performed for health reasons or as a result of injury. You will need to get pre-authorization information from your insurance provider. Any individual risk or suitability factors can be determined at the time of consultation with Dr. Soler. Even though all surgical procedures carry a slight degree of risk, major complications are rarely seen in rhinoplasty. Any minor complications that may arise do not hamper the end result of your surgery.
