Before & After

Your Rhinoplasty Experience

Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that reshapes the nose, bringing it into proportion with other facial features. In some cases, rhinoplasty may be able to improve breathing problems. This can be a life-changing procedure for the right patient. However, the ideal nose varies for each person, so a skilled surgeon is required to provide gratifying results.

Rosen Cosmetic Surgery

Is Rhinoplasty the Right Choice for Me?

During your consultation, Dr. Rosen will get to know your cosmetic goals and help you decide whether or not this is the right procedure for you. In most cases, rhinoplasty is sought by patients interested in boosting their self-confidence and improving their sense of facial harmony by changing their nose's size or shape for a more proportionate and symmetrical look.

A wide variety of aesthetic changes can be made to the nose with a rhinoplasty in Bucks County. If your nose appears too long, large, crooked, wide, narrow, or bumpy, rhinoplasty may be an appropriate solution.

Who's a Candidate for Rhinoplasty Surgery?

The ideal candidate for rhinoplasty surgery typically includes individuals:

  • Dissatisfied with the size, shape, or appearance of their nose, whether due to aesthetic concerns or functional issues such as breathing difficulties.
  • Who have fully developed facial bones, usually around the age of 15 or older for girls and slightly later for boys, to ensure that the nose has stopped growing.
  • In good overall health, with no underlying medical conditions that could increase the risks associated with surgery or impair healing.
  • With realistic expectations about the outcomes of rhinoplasty and a clear understanding of the potential limitations and risks of the procedure.
  • Who have discussed their goals and concerns with a qualified plastic surgeon and have received personalized recommendations for treatment.

What Are The Benefits of a Rhinoplasty? 

Rhinoplasty surgery offers several benefits:

  • Enhanced facial harmony by reshaping the nose to complement other features.
  • Improved self-confidence through correction of aesthetic concerns.
  • Correction of breathing problems by addressing structural issues.
  • Customized results tailored to individual anatomy and preferences.
  • Long-lasting improvements in nasal appearance and function.
  • Versatile procedure capable of addressing a variety of concerns.

How Does Rhinoplasty Enhance Nasal Proportion?

Before your procedure, you’ll meet with Dr. Rosen, as part of your pre-operative consultation, to discuss your aesthetic ideals as they relate to your nose. Together you may study photos and analyze angles of the nose to determine the intended result. The typical operation takes between one and three hours, under local anesthesia, with intravenous sedation. Dr. Rosen may choose to perform your rhinoplasty as a closed or open operation. 

During a “closed” rhinoplasty procedure, Dr. Rosen will make his incisions inside the nose. With an “open” rhinoplasty procedure, the skin of your nose will be lifted to allow a clear view of all nasal structures. Bone and cartilage will be reshaped according to your specific aesthetic goals. This may involve reducing, augmenting, or refining the shape of your nose. Some cases may require a tissue graft or even fracture of the bone.  Absorbable sutures will be placed after the nose is reshaped, along with nasal packing and a special splint. Dr. Rosen will walk you through everything you need to know about your procedure, answering any questions you might have, so you feel confident with your rhinoplasty in Bucks County. 

After Rhinoplasty: What to Expect During Your Recovery

Recovery time varies from patient to patient, with most returning to their routine a week or two. Pain medications will help you manage discomfort during the first week, after which the nasal packing (if used) will be removed. 

It will take a bit of time for the swelling from your rhinoplasty procedure to fully subside, so you might not be able to see your full results right away. For some, it can take as long as five to six months, but you’ll see gradual improvements.

Adjusting to your new nose is not always easy, and older patients may find it especially difficult. For at least six weeks, you’ll need to avoid activities that may potentially damage the nose. Contact sports are not recommended!

Are There Any Possible Rhinoplasty Complications?

Cosmetic surgery procedures all carry a risk of complications, which you can effectively minimize by going with a highly experienced surgeon like Dr. Rosen. With rhinoplasty, possible adverse events may include nasal obstruction, unsatisfactory results, bleeding, and sinus infection. Permanent numbness and difficulty breathing are also possible, however, these typically resolve during the healing process.

Rhinoplasty Alternatives

If a rhinoplasty in Bucks County is not an ideal solution for you, Dr. Rosen may recommend an alternative procedure. To improve breathing in the nose, a procedure called septoplasty may be recommended.

For non-surgical nasal contouring, a dermal filler injection may be the right choice. If your facial features are unbalanced and your nose appears prominent, a chin implant may bring your facial features into proportion.

Rhinoplasty FAQs:

Will there be visible scars after rhinoplasty?

In most cases, incisions for rhinoplasty are made inside the nose (closed rhinoplasty) or along the columella (open rhinoplasty). As a result, scarring is usually minimal and not easily visible.

Can rhinoplasty improve breathing?

Yes, rhinoplasty can be performed not only for aesthetic purposes but also to correct structural issues that may affect breathing, such as a deviated septum or enlarged turbinates.

How long do the results of rhinoplasty last?

Rhinoplasty results are generally long-lasting, and many patients enjoy the benefits for a lifetime. However, the final outcome may take several months to fully stabilize as residual swelling subsides.

Are there risks associated with rhinoplasty?

Like any surgery, rhinoplasty carries risks such as infection, bleeding, adverse reaction to anesthesia, or unsatisfactory aesthetic results. It's important to discuss potential risks with your surgeon during the consultation.

Can I customize the changes I want in my nose during rhinoplasty?

Yes, rhinoplasty is highly customizable. During the consultation, you can discuss your goals and expectations with your surgeon, who can provide insights into what changes are realistic and achievable based on your facial anatomy.

How do I choose the right surgeon for rhinoplasty?

It's crucial to select a board-certified plastic surgeon or a facial plastic surgeon with specific experience in rhinoplasty. Look at before-and-after photos of their previous patients, read reviews, and have a thorough consultation to discuss your goals and concerns.
