Is Rhinoplasty the Right Choice for Me?

One of the most attractive aspects of the rhinoplasty procedure is that it can help patients to address both functional and cosmetic issues, in equal measure. Maybe you’re not satisfied with the way your nose complements the rest of your face. Perhaps you’re having trouble breathing. In some cases, we encounter a combination of both! Whatever the case may be, we’ll figure out how to unite you with the nose of your dreams.

You’re likely a great candidate for rhinoplasty if you’re dealing with:

  • Overly large nose
  • Too small nose
  • Uneven shape
  • Bumps or humps
  • Drooping tip
  • Asymmetry
  • Breathing issues

How Does the Actual Procedure Work?

Whether your nose issues were caused by injury or heredity, there can be a number of problems, both cosmetic and functional in nature, that might bring you into our office to learn more about the rhinoplasty procedures we can offer. By surgically correcting the shape of your nose, rhinoplasty can solve breathing problems, while also creating a nose that better complements your facial features, resulting in a greater sense of symmetry and facial harmony.

Each procedure is highly unique, and will be tailored to both your facial structure and the goals that have led you to seek out the procedure in the first place. The length of the procedure will depend on the specifics of your operation, and Dr. Markelov will be sure that you know exactly what to expect before the actual day of your operation. During your consultations, we’ll talk you through just about everything you might need to know.

Based on your goals, Dr. Markelov can straighten the nose, clear blocked passages, reduce the nose size, or increase its profile...all based on the patient’s specific goals and concerns. Incisions are typically hidden within the nostrils, so you won’t have to worry about any visible scarring once your procedure has been completed. You’ll need to wear a splint while you recover, but this can come off in a few days.

Preparing for Your Rhinoplasty Procedure

At Elevé Plastic Surgery, we understand that undergoing a cosmetic procedure of just about any kind is a pretty major event in your life. As such, we take extra care to work closely with our patients, and you’ll take an active role in helping us to develop the specifics of your surgical procedure. We’ll have at least two consultations before your surgery, answering your questions, and giving you a roadmap for recovery and beyond.

You’ll want to reach out to your insurance carrier, as rhinoplasty can sometimes be a tricky procedure when it comes to insurance coverage. Due to the functional nature of this surgery, there are instances where part of the cost can be covered, so we recommend reaching out to your provider and exploring your options, just to be on the safe side.

Your Rhinoplasty Recovery Period

Most rhinoplasty procedures take between one and two hours, and you’ll be able to return home when your surgery is completed. You’ll experience some soreness and swelling for the first 24 hours, and a bit of bleeding is also normal. We’ll use gauze and medication to control both of these issues.

Cold compresses will also help to mitigate bruising and swelling, which will be present for a few days. Stuffiness can persist for a few weeks, and you’ll need to take care not to blow your nose until the healing process has fully completed. You must also take care to avoid strenuous activity during this time.

We’ll set up follow-up visits to ensure that you’re healing properly, and you should start to see the results of your surgery after about two or three weeks, when the swelling begins to fully subside. Dr. Markelov will let know exactly when you’re able to return to your normal daily activities.

If you’re feeling like a new nose might significantly improve your quality of life, we want to hear from you here at Elevé Plastic Surgery. Dr. Markelov has extensive experience with the rhinoplasty procedure, enabling him to create elegant, naturalistic results that are motivated by aesthetics and functionality in equal measure.
