There are many men and women who are self-conscious about the appearance of their nose. They see that even the slightest imperfection of their nose can cause other areas of their face to feel off-balance or out-of-place. Dr. Vendetti performs nose surgery (rhinoplasty) to help create greater facial harmony with a carefully sculpted nose that complements each patient’s unique face.
What is nose surgery, and who is it best for?
Unlike other cosmetic facial surgeries, nose surgery (rhinoplasty) is less about correcting signs of aging, and more about improving overall facial balance. Nose surgery is popular with both men and women who are unhappy with the shape, size, angle, or projection or their nose. While it is most often performed for cosmetic reasons, Dr. Vendetti also performs nasal surgery to correct the effects of a past injury or to alleviate breathing problems.
Your nose surgery with Dr. Vendetti
Your nose surgery will begin with a personal consultation with Dr. Vendetti. He will listen carefully to understand your goals, and will carefully analyze your unique facial structure to determine the best ways to approach your cosmetic surgery.
The specific steps of your nose surgery will vary based on your discussion with Dr. Vendetti. He performs this surgery onsite at our state-of-the-art surgical center in Virginia Beach. Nose surgery is most often performed through a closed incision made within the nostrils; however, some cases may require an open approach with the incision being made across the tissue separating the nostrils (the columella). Dr. Vendetti will then be able to reshape the underlying structure of the nose to create the desired appearance.
Nose surgery can be performed with other cosmetic facial surgeries to further improve the balance between all features.
After your nose surgery
You will be able to return home under the care of a loved one just hours after your nose surgery. Dr. Vendetti will apply a lightweight splint to help your nose heal correctly in its new shape. This is typically removed about a week after your surgery.
Most patients will experience a recovery period of about one to two weeks. During this time, you may experience some stuffiness of the nose, soreness, and bruising or discoloration. At about two weeks, you will be able to look in the mirror and see your new nose with minimal signs of surgery.
Nose surgery with Dr. Vendetti can help men and women to finally have the nose they feel was meant for their face–one that is well-balanced with the other facial features and is completely natural in its appearance.
