(Nose Surgery, Rhinoplasty)
If you grew up believing your nose just does not fit your face, nasal surgery can refine and reshape your nose and restore facial balance and proportions for you. It is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures performed today and can greatly enhance your appearance by fitting your nose to the shape of your face. Refining the size, shape of the tip, and overall appearance of your nose can make a substantial difference in your confidence and self-image.
If you are considering both nasal surgery and a procedure such as a face lift to refine your facial balance, Dr. Davidson can perform both surgeries at the same time.
Reshaping the Asian Nose
If your nose is naturally wide and flat with a round bulbous tip and larger nostrils, you may feel a different shape would be more flattering to you. Depending on your preference and facial proportions, Dr. Davidson can reshape your nose to better compliment your face. His procedure, which generally uses a biocompatible implant, builds a nasal bridge with an elegant projection and well defined nasal tip and narrower nostrils.
Nasal Surgery Procedure
During your initial consultation, Dr. Davidson will work with you to determine realistic goals and discuss options. There are several different techniques he can use to reshape your nose, depending upon the results you desire. In each, Dr. Davidson may remove skin from your nose or make an incision through the mouth.
Nasal Surgery Recovery
When the procedure is finished, your nose will be secured in place and given a splint to help preserve its shape as it heals. Before you resume your activities, you should plan on resting for about two days. You can return to work after a week, and should make a full recovery within three weeks.
