Is Rhinoplasty For You?
Both women and men are potential candidates for rhinoplasty. If you feel unhappy with the overall appearance of your nose or you want to treat certain issues, this surgery could be a great option. It is important that you set realistic expectations because your appearance will change. During your consultation, Dr. Mang will discuss these changes to ensure you feel comfortable. Additionally, before undergoing rhinoplasty, your facial growth should be complete. We will discuss all of these factors at your consultation.
Rhinoplasty is performed with general anesthesia and is considered outpatient surgery. Depending on your specific needs, Dr. Mang will select from a variety of surgical techniques. Generally, he performs nose surgery with either a closed or open technique. Our goal is to remove excess tissue and cartilage, or to enhance and add cartilage for a new shape. After repositioning the nasal features, your skin is placed over your newly structured nose. Your sutures are placed inside the nose or along the natural external crease.
What to Expect
Following your surgery, we will take you back to the recovery room for monitoring. After a brief monitoring period, patients can return home to recover. Your nose and the surrounding area will look swollen and bruised for the first few days. Often, many patients will also experience bruising and discoloration underneath the eyes. To reduce discomfort, Dr. Mang recommends cold compresses and inflammatory medications. We will schedule your follow-up appointment within 72 hours to assess your healing progress. On average, it takes about 2 – 4 weeks to recover from nose surgery. During your recovery period, you should avoid strenuous activity or exercise.
How much does rhinoplasty cost?
The cost of rhinoplasty varies based on the technique used and how complex your procedure is. Before estimating costs, Dr. Mang will listen to your needs and goals to help develop your custom treatment plan. When this is complete, he can discuss costs for the facility, anesthesia, and more. To get your best results, it's important to focus on selecting an experienced surgeon, like Dr. Mang, instead of the cheapest cost. To help make your surgery easy to afford, Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery accepts several payment methods, and we can help you find low-interest financing.
Will my insurance cover functional nose surgery?
While rhinoplasty to improve your appearance is not covered by insurance, if your nose reshaping surgery is considered medically necessary to improve your breathing, some of your costs may be covered by insurance. If you may be applying for reimbursement from your insurance, please tell Dr. Mang during your consultation. We can help you submit any needed paperwork and information to your insurance to properly process your claim.
Are there nonsurgical options to change my nose?
If you want to smooth lumps and bumps on your nose, a hyaluronic acid-based wrinkle filler (like JUVÉDERM® or Restylane®) might be an option. An injectable filler can temporarily improve minor imperfections on your nose, which may help you decide if you want to proceed with rhinoplasty. Nose surgery is better for larger changes, long-lasting results, and to adjust the internal structure for better function. At your consultation, Dr. Mang will tell you more about nonsurgical nose reshaping.
What about ethnic rhinoplasty?
Ethnic rhinoplasty focuses on improving the appearance of the nose while still maintaining your cultural identity. This is often a consideration if you are African-American, Asian, or Middle Eastern. In your consultation with Dr. Mang, you can talk about what you want to keep and what you want to change. This will allow him to personalize your treatment plan to give you your best results.
Can I combine nose surgery with other facial surgeries?
Many patients think about combining nose surgery with another cosmetic procedure, like cheek or chin augmentation. Combining surgeries for a dramatic result can be discussed during your consultation with Dr. Mang. Once he understands your goals, he can help you decide what procedures should be in your treatment plan. Nose reshaping surgery can often help make your whole face look more balanced, so you should wait to see your results before getting another procedure.
