Are you unhappy with the size or shape of your nose? If you answered yes to this question, then Dr. Yugueros can help you!
Patricia Yugueros, MD, has extensive experience in rhinoplasty
to create a beautiful, natural-looking nose
that is perfect for your face!
Also known as a nose job, nose-reshaping surgery (rhinoplasty) is a common cosmetic procedure to:
- Reshape the nose, either across the tip or the bridge
- Reduce the size of the nose, making it shorter and/or narrower
- Reduce the size of large nostrils
- Increase the size of your nose if it is too small or too narrow
- Modify the angle between the nose and upper lip
- Correct birth defects and injuries
- Correct a deviated septum
Depending on your desires, results of rhinoplasty can be subtle or dramatic. But the best outcome is a natural-looking nose that is balanced for the size and features of your face.
Your Nose Surgery Consultation
Dr. Yugueros will discuss your desires, expectations, and concerns. She will review your medical history and examine your nose, chin, and face. She will take pictures of your nose and face with a digital camera so that she can digital show how your newly reshaped nose will look with digital imaging.
The Rhinoplasty Procedure
Rhinoplasty is usually an outpatient procedure. The type of anesthesia you have will depend on the complexity of your procedure. Most nose reshaping surgeries take 1 to 2 hours.
The shape of your face, thickness of your skin, age, and structure of your nasal bones and cartilage will influence your procedure. During the procedure, the skin of the nose is separated from its supporting bone and cartilage and sculpted to the desired shape. The location of incisions and stitches varies with each patient. During your consultation, Dr. Yugueros will explain her approach with your nose so that you will know what to expect.
In some complex cases, a second surgery might be necessary to achieve the goals for your nose reshaping surgery.
Rhinoplasty is a highly individual procedure. The incisions are generally very small and hidden inside the nose, so you should have no visible scars.
Recovery From Nose Reshaping Surgery
Dr. Yugueros will give you thorough instructions to prepare for and recover from your nose reshaping surgery.
Most patients describe mild discomfort after rhinoplasty, which can be treated with oral over-the-counter or prescription medications. You should be able to go home within a few hours of your procedure.
Bruising after a nose job typically lasts about a week. But you are likely to have some swelling for several months. The swelling is usually not noticeable to others, but it means your final results will take time.
External and internal nasal splints may be used to support your nose and maintain its new shape while it heals. Dr. Yugueros will remove your splints after a week.
Most nose reshaping patients do not have to have their noses packed after surgery. Mild bleeding from your nostrils is normal during the first week, but it is important not to blow your nose during the first week to ensure that it heals as quickly as possible.
You should be able to return to normal activities, including work or school about 10 days after your surgery. Dr. Yugueros will tell you when it is alright for you to engage in strenuous activities.
You will visit Dr. Yugueros a week after and periodically for up to a year after your nose reshaping procedure to ensure that you are healing properly.
Nose Reshaping / Rhinoplasty Results
The results of your nose reshaping surgery will become evident within 2 to 3 weeks as you heal and your swelling and bruising subside. Your final result, however, will be most apparent several months to a year later.
