Rhinoplasty (nose)

Obstructions in the nose that cause breathing and sinus problems and deformities of the nose such as a hump on the top or a nose that is too long or too wide can be corrected by a rhinoplasty. A rhinoplasty can be performed in conjunction with reconstructive nasal-septal surgery to relieve obstructions inside the nose. This operation is known as a septorhinoplasty. Incisions are placed inside the nose so that no scarring can be seen. Rarely, a small incision may be required across the skin between the nostrils. Most patients have packing inside their nose when they leave the surgery center which may be removed by a member of Dr. Joseph's staff the following morning. There will be a small cast on the nose for approximately 7 days which will be removed on the patient's post-operative visit. Rhinoplasty surgery is performed at Brighton Medical Corporation, a certified out-patient surgical center . These procedures can be done under a light intravenous sedation but may be done under general anesthesia. The patient is required to have a competent adult pick them up from the surgical center and stay with them the first night. Surgical fees, pre-operative and post-operative instructions are given at the time of the consultation and the patient is responsible for reading these instructions thoroughly prior to surgery.
