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 Rhinoplasty in Austin??
Rhinoplasty is a highly personalized procedure, so costs vary quite a bit. Pricing includes facility fees, anesthesia fees, surgeon’s fees, and others. While elective or cosmetic procedures are not covered by insurance, if you suffer from structural problems that affect your breathing, your carrier may cover the treatment partially. We will provide you with a detailed quote at the time of your consultation.
How long does the surgery take?
The length of rhinoplasty surgery generally varies based on how much work is required to create the changes you desire. If bone or cartilage grafting is needed, the surgery will extend longer. In general, the length of the surgery should not be a huge factor in your decision to pursue rhinoplasty.
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.
