Rhinoplasty Atlanta

 Atlanta Rhinoplasty SurgeryRhinoplasty is the surgical correction of nasal issues. A patient’s nose may be experiencing cosmetic issues, meaning ones that are purely aesthetic in nature. Their issues may also be functional, meaning that they affect the nose’s ability to function correctly. Regardless of the type of issue, correcting a nasal problem can have a major positive impact on a patient’s quality of life.

If you feel like your nose is too big or looks somehow unusual, it’s best to make an appointment for a consultation at Marietta Plastic Surgery. During a consultation, your nose will be evaluated in order to better understand the problem. You will also be able to discuss your aesthetic goals with your plastic surgeon and ask questions about the procedure itself.

Noses can experience a wide variety of irregularities, including pollybeak, dorsal hump, inverted V, saddle nose/boxer’s nose, bulbous or pinched nasal tip, deviated septum, drooping nasal tip, overprojected nose, crooked nose, wide nasal base, hanging columella, and upturned nose. Many of these problems are genetic, appearing at birth or at some point during a person’s nasal development. Others come from trauma to the nasal area, which may displace the nasal bones or otherwise cause weaknesses in the internal architecture.

There are two methods of rhinoplasty available: open and closed. Open rhinoplasty is often employed for complex nasal procedures, since it offers a great deal of access to the internal structures. This method involves a tiny incision on the columella, which is the external soft-tissue area separating the nostrils. The skin of the area is then lifted.

Closed rhinoplasty is less invasive. For this method, the plastic surgeon will make small incisions within the nostrils and will then make internal changes through these incisions. When the incisions heal after surgery, any leftover marks will be well-hidden within the nostrils.

Either closed or open rhinoplasty may be available for use by your plastic surgeon depending on the exact nature of the corrections being made, along with your preferences and those of your surgeon.

The rhinoplasty procedure begins with the application of either local or general anesthesia. This decision, like many associated with plastic surgery, is made before the procedure during a discussion between the patient and the plastic surgeon.

After the incisions have been created, your plastic surgeon will perform any needed alterations to the patient’s nasal architecture, including changes to the cartilage, bones, and soft tissue. Once the nasal issues have been carefully corrected, the incisions will be closed using medical sutures.
