Nose Surgery Candidates
There are many different aspects of the nose that can be altered or enhanced through nasal surgery, including:
- A prominent hump
- A wide bridge
- A deviated septum
- Large nostrils
- A long or bulbous nasal tip
While there are many different aspects of the nose that surgery can correct, in general, the shape can be reduced by altering the nostrils, bridge, and tip of the nose. Nose surgery can also help correct a deviated septum, which, in turn, can improve breathing.
When you come in for a personal consultation with Dr. Reuben, he will be sure to ask you what areas in particular you would like to address with rhinoplasty or septoplasty. From there, he will work with you to create a surgical plan that can help deliver the results you desire.
The Dr. Reuben Difference
An aesthetically pleasing nose helps to balance the face and create a beautiful overall appearance.
- Dr. Reuben
To begin the procedure, Dr. Reuben will determine whether you are a good candidate for an open or closed procedure. The method that Dr. Reuben chooses will depend on the degree of correction, both internal and external.
In Salt Lake City, a rhinoplasty procedure typically begins with Dr. Reuben creating an incision across the columella (for an open procedure), and creating incisions inside the nostrils (for both open and closed procedures). From there, various aspects of the nose can be altered, including the tip, bridge, and nostril size. Once this is complete, the nasal skin and tissue are re-draped, and the incisions are closed.
What to Expect After Your Nose Surgery
After surgery, you may experience some bruising and swelling, which will subside within the next few weeks. Patients should keep their head elevated as to keep the swelling to a minimum. It is important to note that the nasal shape may continue to change with time, with final results seen at around 1 year after surgery.
