Nose Surgery

Nose Surgery, also known as Rhinoplasty, is a plastic surgery procedure that provides an enhanced appearance of the nose. In addition, the procedure may improve breathing difficulty. Rhinoplasty is requested by young adults, women and men to improve genetic defects, consequences of traumatic injury, or to revise the results of an earlier procedure, including:

  • Bring the nose into proportion with the face
  • Improve the width of the nose at the bridge and nostrils
  • Smooth visible bumps
  • Fill depressions on the nose
  • Improve a nasal tip that is disproportionately large, turned downward or upward
  • Improve asymmetry between the nose
  • Create a smooth profile of the nose
  • Improve a deviated septum or enlarged turbinates

Nose Surgery / Rhinoplasty Procedure

Dr. Hardesty uses exceptional skill to refine features of the nose. They bring a wealth of experience to the table in creating balance and harmony for the face.

The Incision

Surgery involves incisions that may be placed completely inside the nostrils (closed procedure), or along the tissue strip that separates the nostrils or in select folds of the nose (open procedure). The type of incision depends upon the goal of the patient and the type of technique that will be used in the procedure- open or closed.

Rhinoplasty Techniques

Surgery may involve reducing or increasing the size of the nose by treating structures that are found under the tissue of the nose. The underlying structures such as cartilage may be reshaped to remove lumps and improve asymmetry. Underlying structures may need cartilage from other areas of the body such as the ears to augment the nose. A deviated septum may be improved by straightening the cartilage, not only altering the profile of the nose but improving breathing as well.

Nose Surgery Recovery

Recovery is optimized by resting and following directions provided by Dr. Hardesty. Within a week, bruising and swelling subsides to show the refined appearance of the nose. At this time, the results from nasal surgery are apparent. This time period is usually several days at which time you can return to normal daily activities. Often over time, the nasal shape continues to improve. Many people find that the procedure improves aesthetics, function and other aspects of patients’ lives such as self esteem.
