What Is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that reshapes the contours of the nose. It can include a number of changes such as the following:

  • Reducing the size of the nose
  • Narrowing the bridge
  • Correcting deformities
  • Changing the shape of the nostrils to make them more symmetrical with one another
  • Correcting a deviated septum, which occurs whenever bone and cartilage inside the nose are off-center

Benefits of Rhinoplasty

A rhinoplasty procedure corrects the proportions of an individual’s nose. It is often performed for cosmetic reasons but can be needed for medical reasons as well. For instance, rhinoplasty is sometimes sought to fix breathing problems resulting from a structural defect in the nose.

How Is Rhinoplasty Performed in Santa Clarita?

A rhinoplasty requires general anesthesia to ensure you are fully asleep. It may be performed using one of two procedures. The first is a closed rhinoplasty that requires only internal incisions. An open rhinoplasty will require an incision across the columella, which is the area between the nostrils. The type of incision you receive will depend on where and how your nose needs reshaping.

After making the incision, Dr. Hu will work to reshape the nose or nostrils. He may sculpt the bridge or tip of the nose to change its shape or may alter the angle in the area between the upper lip and nose. In some cases, it might be necessary to remove excess tissue inside the nose.

When the procedure is complete, your incisions will be closed. Splints and/or gauze packing will also be placed inside the nose to prevent swelling and excessive bleeding. Depending on the extent of your reconstruction, an overnight stay in the hospital may be required.
