Rhinoplasty – Cosmetic Nose Surgery – Houston, TX
ABOUT RHINOPLASTY SURGERY
Cosmetic nose surgery (rhinoplasty), is an aesthetic procedure that is used to improve the appearance of the nose. In addition, rhinoplasty also helps correct functionality in some patients. Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr. Anthony Nikko, is a seasoned cosmetic face and nose surgeon who offers rhinoplasty, taking a conservative approach to produce the most beautiful and natural-looking outcomes. Even while rhinoplasty produces subtle changes, they usually are quite dramatic. Rhinoplasty is used to make a nose look smaller or enhance a nose that is wide, too large, or misshapen. The goal is to produce a more aesthetically pleasing nose that meets aesthetic goals and functions as it should. To learn more, call the Nikko Cosmetic Surgery Center today.
Women and men both are candidates for rhinoplasty. If you’re displeased with the overall look of your nose and have specific concerns you wish to enhance or repair, this surgery may be the right answer. It is important that realistic expectations are noted as your appearance will be changed. In addition, facial maturity should also be complete so this factor must be considered as well, especially for individuals under 21.
Cosmetic nose surgery is performed with the patient under IV sedation or general anesthesia, and is considered an outpatient surgical procedure. Rhinoplasty has varying surgical techniques depending on what is being addressed. We perform nose surgery with either a closed approach, or an open method. The goal during surgery is to remove excess tissue and cartilage if there is too much present, or to improve and add cartilage if it is needed for reshaping. The nose is repositioned while the skin is reformed and draped over the newly enhanced framework. Sutures are placed either inside the nose, or within the natural external crease.

WHAT TO EXPECT
After nose surgery, patients will be monitored closely in the recovery space and then released to heal at home. The area around the nose will be very swollen and bruised for a week or so. In most cases, there is bruising under the eyes as well. Cold compression, as well as prescription medication can help with these effects. Your post-operative appointment will take place within 72 hours proceeding surgery in order for us to assess the healing process. On average, it takes about 2 – 4 weeks to heal from rhinoplasty. During this process, strenuous activity or exercise should be avoided. Rhinoplasty surgery produces gorgeous, transpiring outcomes, however, it also needs a very skilled degree of surgeon experience, and visual artistry to create the appropriate shape. We recommend that you do your diligence and provide a detailed account of concerns and goals during the initial meeting.
