Nasal Surgery (Rhinoplasty)

Indications

Acquired or congenital nasal deformities occasionally accompanied by nasal airway obstruction.

Surgery

The operative correction involves reshaping the nose into an aesthetically pleasing appearance (rhinoplasty) and improving or maintaining the nasal airway (septoplasty). Occasionally done in conjunction with a chin augmentation. Time 2-3 hours.

Risks

Although uncommon, complications can occur and include bleeding, infection, and the occasional need for additional surgery if some deformity persists.
