Rhinoplasty changes the nose’s shape and size improving facial harmony and self-confidence.
While the shape of your nose is usually the result of heredity; the appearance may have been altered in an injury or during prior surgery.
Also known as rhinoplasty, surgery of the nose improves the appearance and proportion of your nose, enhancing facial harmony and self-confidence. Surgery of the nose may also correct impaired breathing caused by structural defects in the nose.
Rhinoplasty can change:
- Nose size, in relation to facial balance
- Nose width, at the bridge or in the size and position of the nostrils
- Nose profile, with visible humps or depressions on the bridge
- Nasal tip, that is enlarged or bulbous, drooping, upturned or hooked
- Nostrils that are large, wide or upturned
- Nasal asymmetry
Nose Surgery or Rhinoplasty can correct breathing difficulties caused by structural irregularities. If the septum is deviated, it is now straightened and the projections inside the nose are reduced to improve breathing.
Post nose surgery you will have a splint on the outside of your nose and perhaps silicone splints inside the nose. Dr. Wesley Wilson doesn’t pack the nose with gauze. These splints are removed about 1 week post op. When the external splint comes off at 1 week you will see an immediate difference but the nose will still be quite swollen. You should see more of a change within 6-8 weeks following surgery, with continued refinement for 6-12 months.
Dr Wilson has trained with the worlds experts in rhinoplasty surgery and finds this surgery to be very rewarding for both himself and the patients.
