Reshape and Redefine
Some people are unhappy with the nose they were born with, or with the way, aging has changed their nose. Others may have a nose which is distorted due to injury, or some want to improve their breathing. According to the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Inc. (AAFPRS), every year half a million people consult with a facial plastic surgeon to improve the appearance of their nose with Rhinoplasty. Dr. Chadwell can make slight alterations that can greatly improve your appearance.
Nasal Reshaping is a non-surgical technique to augment the nose performed with only numbing cream, taking only 15 minutes, and with virtually no pain, bruising or swelling. You can return to your work or social life with immediate results. Dr. Chadwell injects Juvederm™ or Restlyane® in precise locations to hide dents, bumps, or deviations; raise the nasal tip, or improve irregularities to restore a more symmetric look to the nose. The end result is that your nose will appear in harmony with your face.
Rhinoplasty & Nasal Reshaping
The nose is the center of the face and affects the entire facial profile. As the focal point, the nose determines the overall harmony of the face, so it isn’t surprising that some people are insecure about the appearance of their nose. Those unsatisfied with the look of their nose can undergo rhinoplasty to correct deformities they were either born with or that have resulted from an accident or injury. Rhinoplasty can change the shape, size, or appearance of the nose, and it can improve breathing problems caused by some conditions like a deviated septum. Nasal reshaping can sometimes be performed to address small abnormalities in the appearance of the nose. This is a non-surgical alternative to rhinoplasty that utilizes injectable filler to reshape the nose.
Recovery and Results
Surgical rhinoplasty will require a splint to support and protect the nose during the healing process. It is important to avoid touching the nose during recovery, which includes not pulling clothing over the head that is too tight. Patients should sleep elevated to reduce swelling. The majority of this swelling will subside within a few weeks. Although many patients notice dramatic results within weeks after surgery, full results may take up to a year to fully develop.
