The most commonly performed procedure, a rhinoplasty reshapes the nose to the patient’s desired specifications. Whether seeking to bring about facial symmetry or correct breathing issues, Dr. Robbins’ can reshape your nose to balance your facial features. A rhinoplasty can help improve your self-image and your confidence level.
Mayo-Clinic trained, board-certified Nashville plastic surgeon Chad Robbins, M.D., F.A.C.S., will discuss your goals with you during a personal consultation. The surgery will require the use of general anesthesia, where Dr. Robbins will reshape the nose and cartilage after separating the nose from the bone that supports it. Swelling and bruising resulting from the surgery will subside within a week.
A temporary splint may be worn during the initial week to aid in recovery. Most patients are able to return to normal activity only three weeks after surgery. To find out what to expect from a rhinoplasty with Dr. Robbins, see the before and after photos below:
