RHINOPLASTY or SEPTO-RHINOPLASTY (A NOSE JOB)
The feature in the center of our face is directly connected to your self-esteem and your very essence. A big nose…a crooked nose…a wide nose…a nose out of balance with the face…any of these can provoke cruel teasing and calls of “Hey Snozz!” But changing your nose through surgery can dramatically change the way others see you if…
- You are self-conscious about your nose and feel unattractive because of it.
- You avoid being seen or photographed in profile.
- Your nose labels you with an ethnic identity (which may or may not be your actual heritage).
- You are a mature person with a clear idea of what you’d liked changed about your nose.
- You understand that a rhinoplasty will enhance your appearance and boost your self-esteem, but it can’t solve social or relationship problems.
Whatever your reason for deciding to have a rhinoplasty, a lovelier you and a brighter future is waiting when Dr. Collini uses an artist’s sensibility to create a nose that is customized just for you!
There are two versions of this surgical procedure. A rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure designed to improve the shape, form, and function of the nose. It addresses aesthetic imbalances such as a nose that is too large for the face, a “bump” on the nose, a nose or nostrils that appear too wide, or a nose tip that lacks projection or droops. Sometimes a rhinoplasty is combined with another procedure called a septoplasty. This is a functional procedure performed to improve nasal breathing. The septum is the tissue that separates the nostrils. Inside the septum is cartilage. If the cartilage is twisted, misshapen, or broken either at birth or by trauma later in life, it can veer off to one side and obstruct nasal breathing. When the two operations are performed together, it is called septo-rhinoplasty.
Dr. Collini performs nasal surgery in the privacy and comfort of our state-of-the-art surgery center. It is performed with general anesthesia or with intravenous sedation and local anesthesia. The operation usually takes 1½ – 2 hours to perform from start to finish. You will go home shortly afterward.
