Rhinoplasty, also called a nose job, is a cosmetic procedure that reshapes and sculpts the nose for a more youthful, pleasing appearance. Many of our Pennsylvania patients choose rhinoplasty for purely aesthetic reasons, while others find that it can help solve difficulties with breathing.
In rhinoplasty, the nose is carefully reshaped to meet your specific cosmetic needs. Because the nose is so central to your appearance, having clear aesthetic goals and a realistic attitude are key to a successful operation. Some of the beneficial improvements that rhinoplasty can confer include:
- Reduction of humps on the nasal bridge
- Improvement in appearance of the nasal tip
- Reduction in size of excessively flared nostrils
- Reduction in overall width
- Improved breathing in patients with nasal obstruction.
Depending upon your specific goals, incisions can be limited to within the nostrils to reduce scarring (closed rhinoplasty), or external incisions can allow for more extensive restructuring of the nasal tissue (open rhinoplasty). Recovery from rhinoplasty is similar to other cosmetic procedures, though patients who choose closed rhinoplasty may recover somewhat more quickly than those who prefer the open option.
Rhinoplasty is a versatile procedure that can address numerous issues. If you’re ready to learn more about rhinoplasty, please contact Dr. David A. Bottger today at 610-355-1929. We are pleased to serve patients throughout Pennsylvania.
