Difficulty breathing through your nose? Was your nose ever broken? Unhappy with the shape of your nose? Rhinoplasty might be for you then.

What Is the Process?

Closed Approach

The closed approach to rhinoplasty surgery involves several incisions within the nose, which is most useful for more minor corrections to the nasal structure.

To reshape the nose, the doctor will remove bone or cartilage, or add cartilage grafts. In order to correct a deviated septum, another option is nose tip surgery.

During this procedure, the doctor will straighten the septum inside the nose in order to improve the patient’s ability to breath. Afterward, Dr. Athré redrapes the nasal skin and tissue and the incisions are stitched back together. Patients heal between six and eight weeks after surgery.

Open Approach

The open approach to rhinoplasty surgery involves an incision across the strip of skin between the nostrils, allowing the doctor to completely view all of the bone and cartilaginous structures in the nose.

The Benefits

Rhinoplasty can reshape a central part of the patient’s face. Nose surgery can minimize large noses, straighten out bumpy bridges, or reshape wide nostrils, depending on the patient’s aesthetic preference. For those with medical problems behind their nasal structures, restructuring the nose can lead to easier breathing and smoother healing after a break.

What Is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty, more commonly referred to as a nose job, is the surgical reshaping of the nose for aesthetic or corrective purposes. This is one of the most common facial cosmetic surgery procedures. Dr. Athré is one of the foremost rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty surgeons in the country.

Although common, rhinoplasty is also one of the most demanding surgical procedures, and requires an in-depth consultation, complete physical exam, and a discussion regarding the patient’s aesthetic preferences before surgery can get started. Athré Facial Aesthetics also utilizes computer imaging in order to help patients gain a better sense of their desired results.

Nose jobs are not only done for aesthetic purposes, however. If you suffered a broken nose or complications from a previous nose surgery, rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty can correct the shape and size of your nasal structures and help you breathe.

After the in-depth consultation but before the surgery, the patient receives anesthesia and Dr. Athré performs either an open approach procedure or a closed approach procedure, depending on the case.
