What is a Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty, also called a nose job, is a cosmetic surgery that changes the shape or size of the nose. This technique can be used to adjust the tip of the nose, the bridge of the nose, or even the nostrils. Many patients choose to have a rhinoplasty to adjust their nose to better fit the rest of their facial features, creating a more balanced appearance. Rhinoplasties can also be performed to improve the function of the nose if a patient’s breathing ability is impaired.


How is a Rhinoplasty Performed?

At Anh Vu, M.D., every rhinoplasty begins with an in-depth consultation with Dr. Anh Vu. During this consultation, Dr. Vu carefully plans out the surgery based upon the patient’s aesthetic goals. Facial surgery can create permanent, life-changing results, so he spends a substantial amount of time discussing the procedure with the patient to ensure that they achieve the results they desire. Dr. Vu is incredibly meticulous during surgery, which involves precise cuts within the nostrils or along the base of the nose. Then, the cartilage, and in some cases the bone, are reshaped to match the patient’s aesthetic goals. All rhinoplasties are performed under anesthesia so that patients remain comfortable throughout treatment.

What Can I Expect After My Rhinoplasty?

After surgery, patients can expect swelling and minor bruising or discomfort for the first two weeks. After this time, the final results from your rhinoplasty will be increasingly visible. Most patients take a week or two off work to give the nose adequate time to recover, although it is common that patients look and feel well enough to resume work and other activities after just a week. Following your procedure, Dr. Vu will review instructions for specific post-surgery care and discuss the timing of any follow-up appointments.

How Long Do the Results from Rhinoplasty Last?

When performed by an experienced and qualified surgeon like Dr. Anh Vu, the results from a rhinoplasty can be permanent and are long-lasting.
