Rhinoplasty vs. Rhinoplasty Revision Surgery
Deciding to get any type of plastic surgery is a major decision, especially surgery that involves your face. When it comes to your face, your nose is right in the center, so anything you do to change its appearance will be noticeable, right? Changing the look or shape of your nose is a decision you should feel 100% confident in before going in for surgery.
With that said, it’s important to find a rhinoplasty surgeon in Denver who is reputable and one you can trust. Sometimes, a nose job doesn’t go as planned and you may find you need the services of a rhinoplasty revision surgeon in Denver.
Let’s take a look at both procedures and how Dr. Keith Ladner can assist you with each of them.
A rhinoplasty, or nose job as it’s commonly called, is done to correct distracting nose features or to improve breathing. In some cases, the procedure is done for both purposes. Because a rhinoplasty not only involves the center of your face but can also impact your breathing, it’s important to find a rhinoplasty surgeon in Denver who can not only help you with the aesthetics of a nose job but also knows about the nasal anatomy.
During your consultation before the surgery, your surgeon will discuss the outcomes you hope to achieve and if they are realistic. Sometimes people have ideas of what they want their nose to look like that can not be done. Your surgeon will also advise you whether an additional procedure, such as a chin augmentation, can help you achieve the look you want.
During the surgery, bone and cartilage of the nose are reshaped to optimize and compliment other facial features. Incisions made during the procedure are usually done inside the nose to hide them and help in the recovery process.
The surgery itself can take anywhere from 1-4 hours, depending on the complexity. Many patients can return to work 3-5 days after getting surgery. This can vary from patient to patient.
Rhinoplasty Revision Surgery
If you had a bad experience during rhinoplasty surgery, you may need the help of a rhinoplasty revision surgeon in Denver. The surgeon can help to fix any noticeable defects as well as breathing issues that result from the original rhinoplasty.
For this to be a success, patients need to be clear about their expectations and the surgeon also needs to communicate what is possible and what is not. During a rhinoplasty revision surgery, it’s often necessary to give the nose additional structure and shape. This is usually done by using the patient’s own cartilage from the nose. Sometimes, cartilage from the rib or ear is needed.
If you need the help of a rhinoplasty revision surgeon in Denver it’s always a good idea to bring any before and after photos you have. This includes the ones you had before your original rhinoplasty surgery.
