The Basics of Changing Your Nose
- Posted on: Dec 15 2018
It’s easy to think that today’s aesthetic surgeries are new, reliant on the latest technology. Some procedures, such as laser-assisted liposuction, definitely fit that bill. But other procedures have been around for a long time. Rhinoplasty is one of those.
The first recorded nose-enhancement surgery can be traced back to ancient times in Egypt and India. Fast forward to 2018, nose surgery, clinically known as rhinoplasty, is one of the most frequently performed cosmetic operations around the world. Most patients seek to make cosmetic changes in the way their nose looks. Others want to correct a nose that has been damaged by trauma or maybe has some functional problems.
Dr. Amirlak has been helping his Dallas patients like the nose they see every morning when they look in the mirror. For many people, this has been a long time coming, and nose surgery is very satisfying.
Here is some of what’s involved with nose surgery at Amirlak Plastic Surgery:
- Rhinoplasty with Dr. Amirlak is more than just altering the size and shape of your nose. He will consider all of these factors — your overall facial balance, nasal support, skin elasticity, ethnicity, and medical history.
- An excellent cosmetic outcome from rhinoplasty is not solely dependent on the skills of your surgeon but also the patient’s healing response, which may be influenced by the state of his or her health and lifestyle habits such as smoking.
- Rhinoplasty can be performed two different ways, either with an open or closed method. In an open rhinoplasty, the nasal cartilage and surrounding bone structure are exposed through a small incision on the columella between the nostrils. The closed method doesn’t have a visible scar, as all incisions are made within the nose.
- Waiting for your results after nose surgery requires some patience. There will be a significant amount of swelling post-surgery, and this can make you initially unhappy with your procedure. But as your swelling resolves, your results will continue to improve, and you’ll like what you see.
Whether it’s a droopy nasal tip or a variety humps and bumps that are bothering you call Dr. Amirlak at (214) 974-4948 and set up a consultation for nose surgery.
