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.
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.
