For men and women in and around Nashville and Franklin who are not satisfied with the size and shape of their nose, rhinoplasty (nose reshaping) cosmetic surgery with Mayo Clinic-trained, board-certified Nashville plastic surgeon Chad Robbins, M.D., F.A.C.S., may be the solution.
What is Rhinoplasty?
A rhinoplasty (nose job) procedure can reshape or resize the nose or nostrils to better complement the shape of the face or restore balance to facial features. This procedure can also help correct breathing problems, as well as restore symmetry to a nose affected by birth defects, injury, or disease.
Benefits of a Rhinoplasty
Rhinoplasty surgery patients often are thrilled that they chose this procedure. Some benefits include:
- Improved appearance of the face.
- Smoother, more symmetrical nose.
- Increased breathing function.
- Greater peace of mind and self-image.
During a personal consultation, Dr. Robbins discusses individual goals realistically with each patient. Rhinoplasty is often performed in conjunction with other facial surgeries (such as chin augmentation), so the patient and the doctor decide together which procedures Dr. Robbins will perform in order to enhance the patient’s facial symmetry. Once a date for surgery is set, he will provide instructions on how to prepare.
Rhinoplasty Procedure Details
Dr. Robbins performs nose-reshaping surgery while the patient is under general anesthesia. During the procedure, he either removes skin from the nose or makes an incision through the nostrils. He then reshapes the nose and cartilage to create the desired shape. Depending on the particular reshaping techniques used, Dr. Robbins may apply a temporary splint to be worn during initial healing. Swelling and bruising from rhinoplasty usually subside within a week after surgery, and most patients may resume normal activities including exercise within three weeks.
Am I a Candidate for Rhinoplasty?
If you are unhappy with the size, shape or appearance of your nose, rhinoplasty may be the best procedure for you. For children, Dr. Robbins recommends waiting until after 16 years of age to ensure the child has finished his or her teenage growth spurt. Both men and women in Nashville are candidates for rhinoplasty surgery. It is important to be realistic about your goals and understand that while you will love your improved appearance, you may not receive a positive reaction from everyone. Therefore, it is important that you are clear about your goals with Dr. Robbins and that you are happy with the results of your procedure.
How Much Does Rhinoplasty Cost?
Cost for rhinoplasty surgery will depend on the extent of the surgery as well as the number of treatments required to achieve the desired result. Most insurance plans do not cover plastic surgery or cosmetic procedures. Financing is offered via CareCredit® and Prosper Healthcare Lending.
