Nose Reshaping Surgery in Costa Mesa

Your nose is the central-most feature of your face. Because of this, the way you feel about your nose can greatly impact the way you feel about the rest of your appearance. A nose that is too big or too small may cause other facial features to appear disproportionate as well. If you are uncomfortable with the look of your nose or have experienced changes due to injury or disease, you may be a good candidate for rhinoplasty with UCI Plastic Surgery.

Why People Consider Rhinoplasty

Nose surgery continues to rank as the second-most popular plastic surgery procedure in the United States. More often than not, if you were to ask random people on the street what they would change about their look, they would invariably mention their nose. Self-consciousness about one’s nose is very common, and it is no surprise why. A person’s nose can set the tone for the rest of his or her appearance – be it good or bad. It can make them look older or cause other features to appear imbalanced.

Men and women seeking rhinoplasty may be wanting to improve issues such as:

  • A large or smaller nose or bridge
  • A crooked nose or bridge
  • A large bump
  • A drooping tip

With rhinoplasty, our plastic surgeons can reshape the structure of the nose to create a more symmetrical and harmonious appearance. Nose surgery can also be used to correct medical concerns, such as an obstructed airway or damage left by an injury.

How Rhinoplasty Works

Each rhinoplasty procedure will be performed in a way that is customized to the patient’s unique goals and situation. We will discuss what it is that you hope to achieve, so we can provide you with the best results possible.

To begin your procedure, you will be put under general anesthesia. The underlying structure of your nose will be revealed by making incisions within your nostrils (this way, future scarring will not be visible). Your plastic surgeon can then reshape your nasal bone and cartilage to achieve the nose that you desire. A deviated septum can also be corrected to improve any breathing problems that may exist.

Your incisions will then be closed, and a splint will be placed to help your nose heal properly.

Recovering from Your Nose Surgery

Following your procedure, you will experience some bruising and swelling that will temporarily hide the final results of your procedure. As your nose heals, it is important to keep your head elevated to minimize swelling.

Most patients are able to return to work about ten days after their procedure. You may choose to use makeup to help conceal any persisting bruising or redness. As your nose improves, you will realize a more balanced appearance of your face. Your new nose will help bring harmony and symmetry to the rest of your features, often resulting in a life-changing boost to your self-confidence.
