Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a nose job, is a surgical procedure aimed at reshaping and enhancing the appearance of your nose. Whether for cosmetic reasons or to address functional issues, our board-certified plastic surgeons at the Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads offer personalized rhinoplasty in Newport News & Williamsburg to improve your overall facial harmony.

Elevate Your Nasal Shape,
Size, and Symmetry

Rhinoplasty is a specialized surgical procedure that enhances the aesthetics and functionality of your nose. This versatile surgery can address various concerns, from altering the nose’s size, shape, and symmetry to improving its overall balance with the rest of your facial features. But rhinoplasty is not just about cosmetic improvements; it can also correct structural issues that affect breathing and overall nasal function.

At the Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads, our skilled surgeons use advanced techniques to achieve your desired results while maintaining a natural and harmonious appearance. During a rhinoplasty, your surgeon can modify the nasal bones, cartilage, and soft tissues to create a nose that aligns with your facial proportions. Whether you’re seeking refinement, correction, or reconstruction, rhinoplasty helps you look and feel your best.

Rhinoplasty Techniques Include…

Closed Rhinoplasty

Closed rhinoplasty, or endonasal rhinoplasty, is a surgical technique where incisions are made inside the nose. This allows for minimal external scarring, as all the modifications are performed through the nostrils. Closed rhinoplasty is often chosen for patients seeking subtle changes or specific adjustments to their nasal appearance. It can result in quicker recovery times and less noticeable post-operative scarring than open rhinoplasty.

Open Rhinoplasty

Open rhinoplasty involves an incision made across the columella, the small strip of tissue between the nostrils. This allows the surgeon to lift the skin and soft tissues, providing better visibility and access to the underlying nasal structures. Open rhinoplasty is often preferred for more complex cases or when extensive changes are required. While it may leave a small external scar, open rhinoplasty in Newport News and Williamsburg can produce dramatic cosmetic and functional improvements.

Teenage Rhinoplasty

Teenage rhinoplasty is a decision that requires careful consideration by parents, their teenagers, and the surgeon. While it’s not uncommon for teenagers to express concerns about their appearance, especially when it comes to their noses, you must ensure that your child is emotionally prepared for the procedure. Their motivations should be driven by a genuine desire for self-improvement rather than external pressures or societal expectations.

Teenage rhinoplasty must be performed on individuals whose physical growth is complete. The minimum age for teenage rhinoplasty is around 16 for girls and 17 or older for boys. Our plastic surgeons will perform a thorough evaluation to determine if your child is physically prepared for the procedure. We will discuss your teenager’s motivations, expectations, and the potential risks and benefits of the procedure and only proceed if both you and your teenagers are ready.

I chose the Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads to do my Septoplasty and Rhinoplasty. I had a deviated septum and a big dorsal hump on my nose that had bothered me since I could remember.

Rhinoplasty Surgery in Hampton Roads

Your rhinoplasty surgery is typically performed under local or general anesthesia, depending on your individual needs and the extent of the surgery. The surgery begins with your surgeon making carefully planned incisions inside your nostrils for closed rhinoplasty or across the columella for open rhinoplasty. In closed rhinoplasty, all incisions are hidden within the nasal passages, while open rhinoplasty offers better visibility and access to the nasal structures.

Once the incisions are made, your surgeon can sculpt the nose by reshaping the bone and cartilage. This may involve removing excess tissue, reducing a dorsal hump, or adjusting the nasal tip. If you have functional issues, such as a deviated septum, those can also be corrected during the procedure to improve your breathing. After the adjustments, the incisions are closed with dissolvable sutures. Your surgeon may place a splint on the outside of your nose to provide support during the initial healing phase.

Rhinoplasty Recovery Guidelines:

  • Ensure you get ample rest in the days following surgery to aid in healing.
  • Keep your head elevated when resting or sleeping to reduce swelling.
  • Use cold compresses to minimize swelling and bruising.
  • Follow your surgeon’s prescribed medications for pain and swelling management.
  • Maintain good hygiene around incisions to prevent infection.
  • Refrain from strenuous activities that could impact your nose for several weeks.
  • If recommended, use saline nasal sprays to keep the nasal passages moist.
  • Be cautious when wearing glasses or sunglasses, and avoid any pressure on the nose.
  • Drink plenty of fluids to aid in the healing process.
  • Keep scheduled post-operative appointments with your surgeon for monitoring.
