What Nose Irregularities Can Rhinoplasty Correct?

Featured Image

We pay a great deal of attention to our noses. This is understandable since it is one of our most obvious features. Many people prefer a smaller nose shape, a narrower tip, or improved symmetry that gives them a balanced look. Others experience breathing issues due to problems with their underlying bone structure. If you think rhinoplasty surgery could help, it is best to speak with a skilled, double board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Jaimie DeRosa.

Want to know what kind of irregularities a nose surgery like rhinoplasty can correct? Schedule an initial assessment with DeRosa Clinic Plastic Surgery. Our Palm Beach, FL facility can perform custom treatments to get the successful results you want.

How rhinoplasty works

When it comes to rhinoplasty, patients can receive reconstructive nose surgery, cosmetic nose surgery, or both depending on their needs. Reconstructive rhinoplasty restores the function of your nose if you have breathing problems due to a deviated septum, while a cosmetic rhinoplasty enhances your physical appearance. Dr. DeRosa accomplishes these procedures by making modifications to the underlying bone structure, cartilage, and soft tissue.

Reasons for rhinoplasty

It is uncommon for someone to be born with a perfect nose. Sometimes genetics causes large bumps or too-narrow nasal passages. In other situations, people suffer from injuries that change the shape or function of their nose. This is where rhinoplasty comes in. Rhinoplasty procedures can fix a wide range of issues so you can feel confident in your appearance and more comfort when breathing. Here are some examples of what rhinoplasty can do for you in Palm Beach, FL:

  • Resize nose shape to make it larger or smaller

  • Remove bumps or depressions from the nasal bridge

  • Reshape the nostrils

  • Treat a bulbous or droopy tip

  • Correct asymmetry

  • Change nose length or width

How rhinoplasty is performed

DeRosa Clinic Plastic Surgery performs nose surgery while you are under IV sedation or general anesthesia. Dr. DeRosa chooses from several different surgical methods based on your personal goals for the treatment, but we generally offer both open and closed techniques. Once we rework the underlying tissue and structure, we drape the skin and close the incisions with surgical sutures. Our team is careful to place sutures in areas that minimize scarring.

How we achieve custom results

While many nose shapes are similar, none are exactly alike. In your assessment with Dr. DeRosa, we can listen to your concerns and what kind of results you want to achieve. People who want improved cosmetic results can even bring in photographs of the shape they desire. Of course, we may not be able to reproduce someone else’s look exactly. Our goal is to provide results that improve your nasal function and appearance without making you appear “operated on.”

Change your nose for the better

Most people who undergo nose surgery wish for aesthetic balance. Others require treatment to correct their breathing. Whatever your reason to change your nose, Dr. Jaimie DeRosa is here to help. Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular procedures we offer at DeRosa Clinic Plastic Surgery in Palm Beach, FL. Our clinic can treat a range of issues so you love your results.
