Rhinoplasty in Fort Worth, TX
The Center for Cosmetic Surgery offers rhinoplasty and nose surgery to residents of Fort Worth, Arlington and the surrounding communities in Texas.
What Is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty, also called nose surgery or a nose job, is frequently performed to reshape, enhance, or reduce the structure or profile of an individual’s nose to improve facial harmony and self-image. In some cases, an injury or birth defect such as a deviated septum or asymmetry has caused a deformity that looks unsightly and interferes with breathing. In other cases, the shape, size, width, or angle of the nose appear disproportional to other facial features. In any case, Dr. Lavine can perform rhinoplasty to correct and restructure the nose. This is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures, and our patients love having a more balanced and attractive face after nose surgery.
How Is Rhinoplasty Performed?
During this procedure, small, discreet incisions are made, either on the inside of the nose or across the tissue between your nostrils. Through these incisions, Dr. Lavine separates the skin from the underlying cartilage and bone and then restructures them into the desired shape. He may remove excess material or reposition material from the septum as needed to achieve optimal results. Finally, the skin is gently replaced and sutured. The result is a natural-looking, symmetrical nose that improves breathing function, balances other facial features, and creates a more confident, attractive profile.
What Can I Expect During Recovery from Rhinoplasty?
In the beginning, you should avoid bending, straining, and lifting. Most patients can return to work within ten days after surgery and resume normal activities in three weeks. After a few months, it is safe to expose your nose to direct sunlight, although you will need sunblock.
