What is a rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty, often referred to as a “nose job”, is a procedure where the tissues in your nose are altered, transforming its structure, function, and appearance. Rhinoplasty is a highly effective surgery that can aid in restoring your quality of life and your self-esteem.
With rhinoplasty, you can change the size and shape of your nose bridge, nose tip, or nostrils to improve your nose’s appearance. Also, any issues from traumatic injury or broken nasal bones can be corrected to help you look, feel and breathe better.
The Cleveland Plastic Surgery Institute team has an artistic eye and many years of experience in rhinoplasty. We utilize the latest technology to provide you with outstanding results.

The most frequently asked questions about rhinoplasty
During your consultation, your medical history will be reviewed and your nose examined. If you have difficulty breathing due to a deviated septum, have other nasal abnormalities, or are unhappy with how your nose looks, then rhinoplasty might be right for you.
The size, shape, texture, and contours of your nose can be changed based on your personal goals and desired outcome. To ensure this, your treatment plan will be tailored specifically to fit your unique needs.
Before the procedure, you will receive anesthesia to help you fall asleep and avoid any anxiety or discomfort. If asked, you should avoid taking certain medications and refrain from eating and drinking at least 8 hours before surgery.
Specialized surgical tools will be used to remove, repair, alter, or replace tissues in your nose in order to enhance its function and appearance. Any incisions made to your nose will be closed and packed or bandaged for proper healing.
After your rhinoplasty, you must wear a nose splint to help the nose hold its new shape. Your nostrils might be packed to support your septum and reduce bleeding. It is recommended to wear your nasal splint for one to two weeks after surgery.
It’s important that you have a friend or family member drive you home and stay with you for at least 24 hours after your procedure. Expect bruising, swelling, and redness during the healing process. Be sure to follow your post-surgery instructions and take all prescribed medications as directed by our staff.
In order for your nose to heal properly, be sure to attend follow-up appointments with the Cleveland Plastic Surgery Institute team. It will take a few weeks to start seeing the true shape of your nose, but as the swelling and bruising subside over time you’ll be able to enjoy your new appearance and breathe a sigh of relief!
