Nose Reshaping Houston
Nose surgery (a.k.a. Rhinoplasty) can address both functional and aesthetic concerns. This reshaping procedure can improve overall facial appearance, nasal aesthetics, and nasal proportion, as well as increase ease of breathing in certain patients. A surgical plan will be customized to address all areas of concern.
The procedure time varies depending on the goals of the nasal reshaping, ranging from 3 – 6 hours. The procedure is performed under general anesthetic and patients typically stay overnight in the hospital for observation. Nasal packing and a splint is placed after surgery. Patients commonly experience pain, bleeding, swelling, and bruising. Patients can typically return to work after 1 – 2 weeks, often requiring makeup application to cover bruising.
Additional surgical risks will be discussed in consultation.
Please schedule a consultation with Dr. Carpin to discuss if you are a surgical candidate, and to review the risks, benefits, alternatives, and expected outcomes of the procedure.
