How Rhinoplasty Enhances 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.
