Rhinoplasty in Boca Raton, FL

Whether it is performed for functional reasons or cosmetic, a “nose job” can bring symmetry and create a more attractive appearance by simply reshaping it. In Boca Raton, FL, and the surrounding communities, Daniel, Man, M.D., a Florida board-certified plastic surgeon, performs rhinoplasty on individuals who want to reshape their noses to balance their faces and improve their self-confidence.

What is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty, more commonly called “a nose job,” is a surgical procedure used to reshape, contour, and adjust the proportions of the nose. This procedure is performed to straighten the bridge of the nose, reduce a bump on the bridge of the nose, alter the size or shape of the tip, or narrow the base of the nose or nostrils.

This procedure may also be a functional procedure to correct breathing difficulties due to blocked nasal passages (deviated septum). It is done by working inside the nose and nostrils to separate the outer skin from the underlying bone and cartilage. The nose is then contoured to a more desirable shape.

Benefits of Rhinoplasty

As one of the most requested and performed facial surgery procedures, rhinoplasty offers the following benefits:

  • Improved breathing and shape problems
  • Corrects lack of symmetry or deformity
  • Brings balance rest of face
  • Corrects dorsum (bridge) of nose
  • Removes irregularities
  • Narrows wide nostrils

Is Rhinoplasty Right for Me?

If you have breathing issues due to structural issues of the nose or are dissatisfied with the shape of your nose, you may want to consider rhinoplasty to achieve the appearance you desire or correct breathing problems.

How Involved is a Rhinoplasty?

A rhinoplasty procedure is different with each patient, as each patient’s nose is not the same. During the procedure, the incisions are made either inside the nose (closed procedure) or across the narrow strip of cartilage between the nostrils called the columella (open procedure). Dr. Man prefers the open procedure whenever possible.

Once the incision is made, the skin is lifted to provide access to the tissue. At that point, Dr. Man has access to the interior of the nose to reshape the nose and remove excess bone and cartilage. Depending on the purpose of the rhinoplasty, excessively large noses require the removal of bone and cartilage while a deviated septum may be straightened to improve breathing. For those with a hump in the center of the nose, bone is shaved to remove the hump.

Once the structural elements of the procedure inside the nose and any aesthetic reshaping are complete, the skin of the nose is re-draped in its proper place, and sutures close the incision. The rhinoplasty procedure takes roughly one to two hours but may be longer for more extensive reconstruction. The surgery is performed in the doctor’s office under local or general anesthesia.

Preparing for Rhinoplasty

Prior to a rhinoplasty, Dr. Man consults with patients about their issues with their noses and the desired final look. Once a plan is made, he also provides detailed instructions on how to prepare for your surgery. These instructions may include (but may not be limited to):

  • Have a complete physical
  • Have a mammogram
  • Stop smoking at least six weeks before surgery
  • Stop taking aspirin or other NSAIDs that can cause bleeding
  • Reduce alcohol consumption to three drinks per week or fewer
  • Stay hydrated

Other preparation may include planning for the initial time immediately following the procedure. This includes:

  • Arranging for transportation to and from the procedure
  • Having a caregiver for the first 48 hours following surgery
  • Taking two weeks off work following the procedure
  • Preparing cold compresses and supplies for the immediate 48-72 hours following surgery

After Rhinoplasty

After the procedure, patients rest comfortably until the anesthesia begins to wear off. Any necessary medications are administered to prevent infection and minimize discomfort. A tape (acting much like a splint) is worn for several days. The inside of the nose also contains packing tissue.

It is imperative for patients to have someone stay with them for the first 48 hours after the surgery. If necessary, patients may stay overnight at our center the first night following surgery to receive care during that time. Our nurses are all ACSL certified, and our facility has specialized recovery options, including chest wall cooling methods to reduce pain and swelling, a hyperbaric chamber, and oxygen treatments to speed healing.

How Is the Recovery from Rhinoplasty?

The first week requires much rest to allow the nose to heal, with packing and splints removed after one week. Dr. Man uses special methods to decrease swelling and black and blue discolorations around the nose and eyelids during and after surgery. With every passing day after surgery, the swelling decreases and results improve. Patients feel no pain due to Dr. Man’s advanced recovery techniques.

How Much Does a Rhinoplasty Cost?

The cost of a nose job varies, just as each procedure varies with each nose. It is based on the procedure and whether it is performed in conjunction with other procedures. Dr. Man goes over the cost with each patient during a consultation, as well as payment options and financing. Health insurance may provide coverage depending on the purpose of the procedure.

What Do I Do Next?

If you are unhappy with the shape of your nose or have functional problems, we recommend scheduling a consultation with Dr. Man. During this consultation, he talks with you about what you want and evaluates your nose and your concerns. At that point, he makes a recommendation and discusses what he would like to do in detail so you can make an informed decision about it. He also answers any questions you may have.
