Your rhinoplasty will be done under general anesthesia, which means you will be asleep and completely comfortable throughout the experience.
Once you are sedated, we will create incisions either inside or outside the nose. If you require a minor adjustment, we may be able to create all the cuts inside the nose, resulting in no external scarring. However, if you need a more substantial transformation, or the nasal tip requires careful refining, we will make the incision along the columella, which is the strip of tissue that separates your nostrils. In this case, the incision will be hidden in plain sight and should be virtually imperceptible once its healed.
Through those openings, we will reshape your nose. This process will be completely tailored to your needs. We can resize your nose so that it’s balanced with the rest of your features, lower the nasal bridge if it’s too high, elevate and define the nasal tip, and more.
Once your ideal nose has been sculpted, we will close the incisions with care to minimize any scarring. Once the effects of the anesthesia have worn off, you will be free to return home to begin the recovery period.
