Can a Rhinoplasty improve my breathing?
A rhinoplasty reshapes the nose to enhance appearance and restore function. A septoplasty straightens septal deviation within the nose and improves breathing. Together, a septorhinoplasty enhances the outer appearance and inner structure of the nose while increasing overall nasal patency.
How long does it take to achieve a final result after a Rhinoplasty?
A rhinoplasty is performed to create a nasal shape that balances well with your facial features and demonstrates your natural beauty. To achieve this, the nasal structure must be meticulously altered and reshaped to not only enhance appearance but also support the underlying anatomy to last a lifetime. While it takes a minimum of six months for the majority of nasal swelling to resolve, it will take at least a full year for the nose to reach its final contour. In cases that involve significant tip correction, inherently thick nasal skin, or extensive revision surgery, full results may take up to two years.
WHAT IS THE COST OF A RHINOPLASTY IN AUSTIN?
The cost of a rhinoplasty in Austin at Givens Facial Plastic Surgery is variable and depends on individual patient anatomy, complexity of the case, and whether or not other adjunctive aesthetic procedures will be performed simultaneously. Rather than focus on a specific number, you should concentrate on selecting a surgeon with significant experience and whom you trust to give you the results you desire. A detailed quote that includes all necessary fees will be provided during your private consultation with Dr. Givens.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO PERFORM A RHINOPLASTY?
The time required to perform a rhinoplasty is based on surgeon experience, operative technique, and complexity of patient anatomy. Additional time may be required if your procedure is performed in conjunction with other facial rejuvenation treatments. When it comes to your face, there is no reason to compromise on quality.
At what age can I undergo a Rhinoplasty?
There is no ideal age to have a rhinoplasty. However, a comprehensive medical assessment and physical evaluation with Dr. Givens is required if you are considering a nose job in Austin. While it is Dr. Givens’ preference to perform significant nasal reshaping post-puberty, there are exceptions to this rule and the decision to undergo surgery is case dependent.
What is a Revision Rhinoplasty?
A revision rhinoplasty is a corrective surgical procedure that addresses new or persistent imperfections of the nasal appearance and breathing issues after a failed initial nasal reshaping procedure. This very procedure is among the most delicate and challenging of all facial surgeries. A revision rhinoplasty requires expert technique skills and a comprehensive understanding of complex nasal anatomy.
How successful is Revision Rhinoplasty surgery?
Most of the time, an experienced surgeon can produce long-lasting results that both of you are pleased with—often for several decades. However, even in the most experienced hands, there are no guarantees in surgery. Dr. Givens’ approach to success begins with a private consultation to physically examine your nasal structure and ultimately understand your concerns prior to developing a customized treatment plan.
How soon can I undergo a Revision Rhinoplasty, and is it more expensive than a Primary Rhinoplasty?
While Dr. Givens is empathetic to your concerns and needs, she will not schedule a revision rhinoplasty in Austin for at least six months from the date of your first surgery and more likely closer to a full year unless absolutely necessary. It is imperative to allow for most if not all of the post-operative swelling and inflammation to resolve prior to further operation. A revision surgery is often more expensive than a primary rhinoplasty as repair and restoration procedures are usually very time-consuming and much more complex.
Will I need a Revision Rhinoplasty if I break my nose after my first nasal reshaping surgery?
Trauma to the nose affects each patient differently. As a result, there is no guarantee as to if you will need further treatment. However, you should notify Dr. Givens if you do incur a traumatic incident after your initial reshaping procedure to address the issue and discuss future treatment options.
