About Nose Surgery

Rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job, is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries performed by Plastic Surgeon Dr. Frank L. Stile at Stile Aesthetics in Las Vegas, NV. Cosmetic nose surgery is a procedure that is frequently performed to produce desired changes in the appearance and function of the nose. It also reshapes the nose in order to create a more pleasing look and form. However, the overall goal is to achieve facial harmony by bringing the nose into better proportion with existing facial features. In women, a more refined and delicate nose is the goal. In male patients, requests usually include reducing the size of the nose or correcting the contour of an overly arched nasal bridge while maintaining the masculine feature. Cosmetic nose surgery usually reduces the size of the nose, changes the shape and position of the tip, and can narrow the width of the nostrils.

Ideal Candidates

The best candidates for nose surgery:

  • Have cosmetic nose issues they want transformed
  • Have realistic outcomes
  • Desire a long-term solution
  • Desire a natural look

What to Expect

An outpatient procedure, rhinoplasty is performed while a patient is under general anesthesia at an accredited surgical facility. Depending on the technique used and the patient’s unique needs, surgery can last 2 – 4 hours. There are 2 types of nose surgery procedures: open rhinoplasty and closed rhinoplasty.

Open rhinoplasty, or external rhinoplasty, involves the plastic surgeon making a small incision on the underside of the nose between the nostrils to give the surgeon better access to the lower and middle parts of the nose. The surgeon can then manipulate tissue, skin, and bone as needed. In addition, the placement of the incisions allows for minimal scarring. Open rhinoplasty is used for more complex nose surgeries.

With closed rhinoplasty, or endonasal rhinoplasty, incisions are made inside of the nostrils. This technique is usually used for less complex surgeries, such as when the nose already has a good shape and isn’t considered too wide or too long. Due to the placement of the incisions, there will be no visible scarring.

Anticipated Results

After surgery, a patient’s nose can be stabilized with splints made of soft material. A follow-up appointment will be scheduled for the next day where the splints will be removed and external dressings will be placed on the nose, which will remain for about 2 days. Patients should expect some pain, discomfort, bruising, and swelling after surgery that should fully subside within a few weeks. The nose will reposition and evolve into its surgically enhanced shape for months after surgery. The finished product should be realized within a year with a beautifully shaped, positioned, and proportionate nose.
