What is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure used to enhance the look and shape of the nose. Furthermore, rhinoplasty may help improve breathing function in many patients. At our Denver, CO facility, Dr. Raj TerKonda is a seasoned cosmetic facial surgeon who offers rhinoplasty, taking a subtle approach to creating the most natural results. While rhinoplasty consists of slight changes, results can be quite dramatic. This surgery at Cherry Creek Face and Skin is performed to make a nose appear smaller in size or improve a nose that is too large or wide. The objective is to produce a more aesthetically pleasing nose that meets your goals and functions well.

How does Rhinoplasty work?

If you are unhappy with the appearance of your nose and have distinct issues you wish to correct, this procedure may be beneficial. It is important that expectations are understood, as your facial appearance will be altered. Cosmetic nose surgery is performed while the patient is under sedation, such as general anesthesia, and is usually an outpatient surgical procedure. There are various surgical methods, depending on your aesthetic goals and concerns. Our team performs rhinoplasty using either a closed approach or an open method. The objective during treatment is to remove excess bone, cartilage, and tissue, or to build and increase cartilage if needed for reshaping. The nose is repositioned while the skin is re-draped over the newly structured framework. Sutures are placed either inside the nose or along the natural external crease. Upon completion of your cosmetic nose surgery, the area around the nose will be swollen, bruised, and sore for the first few days. Ice packs and prescription medication can assist with these effects. Your follow-up appointment with our team will take place within 48 – 72 hours after surgery to check your healing progress. It takes about 2 – 4 weeks to heal from rhinoplasty. Within this timeframe, strenuous activity should be avoided.
