- Every nose and face is different. It’s important to evaluate each person’s likes and dislikes about their nose. Dr. Schuster does not do the same nose on everyone. Many changes can be performed in order to improve appearance and keep the nose in good balance with the rest of the face. During your consultation at our Maryland center, he can determine if rhinoplasty is appropriate for you based on your unique goals and needs
- An open rhinoplasty technique is used about 80 percent of the time. This method provides for full view of structures of the nose, which allows for more precision. It is especially useful for irregular tips and secondary (redo) surgery. All incisions are on the inside except one on the undersurface.
- Closed rhinoplasty is used 20 percent of the time. This technique may be used when little change is needed in the tip. All incisions are on the inside of nose.
- Both general and twilight anesthesia available
- Outpatient procedure, though arrangements can be made for an overnight stay
- At our Maryland center, rhinoplasty may be combined with other cosmetic options to enhance results, including facial procedures like chin surgery, brow lift, face lift, eyelid surgery, Restylane®, BOTOX® Cosmetic.
Recovery After Rhinoplasty:
- Relatively easy; because the nose is no longer packed after rhinoplasty, the procedure is much more comfortable
- Splint worn on outside of nose for one week
- Recommend one week off from work/school
- Back to full activity in three weeks
- Must be careful not to hit your nose for four to six weeks
