If you’ve entertained the thought of nose surgery, but have always been hesitant about taking the next step, schedule your consultation with Dr. Peña. Learn about the different nose reshaping techniques and look at before and after photos to get an idea of the changes that are possible. You may schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Peña and there is no obligation. You can talk to him about the aspects of your nose that you are not happy with and he will provide you with recommendations on how your nose can be surgically altered.
While Dr Peña is an artist in the shape and appearance of the nose, he partners with a renowned Otorhinolaryngologist (ENT) who will take care of the septoplasty, sinus, and turbinate problems that may contribute to difficulty breathing. The surgery is performed in tandem in an outpatient center.
Who Can Benefit From Nose Surgery?
You may be a good candidate for rhinoplasty if you want to cosmetic address:
- A large or small nose
- A nose that is out of proportion with your other facial featuresv
- A crooked bridge
- A bump, depression or the nose tip droops or is bulbous
- A nose injured due to trauma
- A nose that collapses during a deep breath
Dr. Peña advises patients that their nose must be done growing before a rhinoplasty can be performed. The youngest is 16 years of age for girls and 18 for boys.
What Type of Cosmetic Enhancements Should I Choose for My Nose?
Everyone will have their own idea of “the perfect nose.” Dr. Peña and his cosmetic enhancement staff can help you choose the nose proportions that will not only look attractive, but also integrate well with your other facial features for a more balanced, aesthetically pleasing result. The use of a VECTRA 3D computer rendering of your nose will allow you and Dr Peña to plan your surgical results with precision.
Other facial enhancement procedures may be recommended to create a more balanced and harmonious facial appearance. For example, a chin implant can be used to add further balance to the face. Based on your goals and the types of noses that appeal to you in photos, we will recommend a solution and show you a digital image of what it can look like once the surgery is finished and the nose is healed.
How is Rhinoplasty Performed?
During rhinoplasty, Dr. Peña will use a reshaping technique chosen based on your personal needs. Most procedures are performed on the internal nose involving the manipulation of existing bone and cartilage. Incisions are placed in the nostrils or in the area between the nostrils called the columella. The skin is separated from the nose and the reshaping can involve reduction of bone and cartilage, the addition of cartilage, and reshaping the cartilage with sutures. The procedure is usually done under intravenous anesthesia and can take from one to three hours.* The procedure may be longer if you have breathing problems that will be handled at the same time by the ENT (Dr. Bello). In those cases, general anesthesia is required for your safety.
Is Rhinoplasty a Painful Procedure?
The rhinoplasty procedure involves surgery, so there will be some discomfort during the recovery period. Dr. Peña prescribes pain medication to help you with any pain. Comparatively, rhinoplasty surgery discomfort is overall described by our patients as mild.* The post-surgical period will require you to follow explicit instructions from Dr. Peña.
A week or more of recovery time may be needed, depending on the extent of surgery and your current health. Rhinoplasty patients can expect some discomfort, swelling, bruising, nausea and minor bleeding.* Rest assured that these side effects are temporary and can be minimized with medication. Plenty of rest is recommended. You will return to see Dr. Peña for bandage removal and to make sure you are healing properly. Dr. Peña and his staff will go over all of the post-operative instructions several times and provide you with a take-home information packet.
