ideal nose shape for womenRhinoplasty or nose surgery (reshaping) is a procedure in which adjustments are made to the shape and size of the nose. These modifications are carried out to make the nose smaller or larger, contour the nostrils, correct a hump, or augment the nose. This surgery is also done to alleviate breathing problems, or improve facial deformities. Dr. Marco is an experienced nose plastic surgeon and ensures that the results you achieve are exactly the way you always envisioned them to be.

What will happen during my nose surgery?

Rhinoplasty surgery can be performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia, or using local anesthesia with sedation. Surgery may be performed using either open or closed procedures. In closed rhinoplasty surgery, all incisions are made inside the nose. In the case of open rhinoplasty, an incision is also made in the skin that divides the two nostrils. This makes it easier to lift the skin off the tip of the nose.

What you can expect after the surgery

Patients generally go home the same day after surgery. Most patients do not experience any pain after rhinoplasty; however, some post-operative discomfort may occur. Full recovery will take several weeks.

Who is a good candidate for Rhinoplasty?
