Your nose is one of the most defining characteristics of your face, so if you’re not happy with that feature, it can affect how you view the rest of your face. We have good news. At Blue Illusion Beauty, with locations in San Diego, Murrieta, and Carlsbad, CA, we offer rhinoplasty. This procedure will address any concerns with your nose so that you can improve your facial symmetry, proportion, and overall appearance.
What Is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is the technical term for nose surgery. It is a procedure designed to reconstruct and reshape the nose to correct structural and aesthetic imperfections. This procedure can help the nose function better, look better, or both.
What Can It Address?
Rhinoplasty can address several different cosmetic and functional concerns with the nose. It can help widen the airways to help improve breathing, correct a deviated septum, and increase or decrease the size of the nose. It can also remove any bumps on the nose, straighten a crooked nose, and improve the appearance of the tip of the nose.
How Does It Work?
The nose surgery begins with a consultation. Your consultation is a very important step in the treatment process because it helps us understand your concerns and aesthetic goals. Our surgeon will design a specific treatment plan to address your concerns. If you want to improve the appearance of your nose by addressing imperfections or aspects that you’re not happy with, he will review your options in detail.
If you want to address the functionality of your nose to improve your ability to breathe, he will make recommendations on how to help you improve your breathing. Whether you want to treat cosmetic concerns, functional concerns, or both, we can design the right treatment plan for you.
Addressing Each Patient’s Unique Needs
Everyone’s nose is different. For that reason, we will discuss your concerns in detail and evaluate the structure of your nose and any imperfections that are preventing you from feeling confident about your appearance. We will take different factors into account, including your facial anatomy, so that we can make the necessary changes while still preserving the integrity and harmony of your face.
Customizing Your Procedure
Each procedure is customized to meet the specific needs of the patient. Some patients may need to consider addressing or augmenting their chin to promote facial harmony. This is not the case for all patients, but if our surgeon thinks that you will get the best results by addressing your nose and chin, he will incorporate that aspect of the procedure into your treatment plan so that you can get the most natural and harmonious looking results.
Preparing for the Procedure
Once we create your treatment plan, we will schedule your procedure. There are some ways that you can prepare for your procedure to ensure that you achieve the best possible outcome. We ask patients to refrain from using specific medications and supplements that act as blood thinners, including aspirin and fish oil.
We also recommend that patients wear loose-fitting clothing, have someone who can drive them to and from their appointment, and arrive an hour before their scheduled procedure. Once your procedure is complete, you’ll be able to return home the same day.
Your procedure will be performed as an outpatient surgery. Depending on your treatment plan, we will use general or local anesthesia to help minimize your discomfort throughout the surgery. This procedure involves separating the nose skin and tissues from the structural parts of the nose. There are two different methods that are used to perform this procedure. The first method is called the endonasal method.
This method makes corrections and improvements from the inside of the nose and doesn’t require any external incisions. The second method is called an open procedure and is performed by creating a very small incision in the tissue between the nostrils. Both of these methods can help different patients reach their goals, and our surgeon will help determine which is the right method for you when he creates your treatment plan.
Your recovery will take place in two different phases, your initial recovery, and your final outcome. You can expect to see results within two weeks of your procedure. It may take several months before you notice your final results, but they will continue to improve with every month that follows your procedure. If you choose this procedure to address concerns with breathing, you will notice an improvement in your breathing within a few weeks of your procedure.
Our surgeon will prescribe pain medications to help you maintain optimal comfort after the procedure. You can expect to return to work within one to two weeks of your procedure.
Who Is a Candidate?
The best candidates for rhinoplasty are men and women who want to improve their nose’s symmetry, proportions, aesthetics, and entire appearance. Whether you want to address the size, shape, or function of your nose or address imperfections that have resulted from an injury or surgical procedure, we can help design the right treatment plan for you.
The best candidates are healthy men and women over the age of 16 who have positive and realistic expectations about their procedure and results. We will determine if nose surgery is right for you ar your initial consultation. Dr. Mehta will take the necessary steps to evaluate your nose and determine how to best meet your aesthetic goals.
The Importance of Realistic Expectations
Patients must realize walking into this procedure that it is not designed to make you look like an entirely different person. The purpose of this procedure is to restructure the nose that you have and alter it so that you still look like you, but your nose takes on a more aesthetic appearance.
We will provide you with a better idea of how your nose will look post-op so that you know what to expect and are satisfied with your results. We will take every step to help you achieve a natural yet perfectly proportioned nose that will help increase your confidence in your appearance.
Is Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Right for Me?
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a treatment that involves the use of a dermal filler to improve the shape and appearance of the nose. It is a simple, quick, and effective in-office procedure that can help transform your appearance with no downtime, recovery, or pain. For patients who want to make minor adjustments in the appearance of their nose, this treatment may be the best option.
However, nose surgery may be a better option for those who want permanent and more drastic improvements. This is the importance of the consultation. This appointment allows our surgeon to evaluate your nose in person, listen to your goals, and make the right recommendations to help accommodate your needs and goals.
