Am I a Good Candidate for Rhinoplasty in Milwaukee?
A rhinoplasty procedure has the ability to change a person’s entire look. It can restore balance and symmetry to your face offering great improvement with even the most subtle use of corrective surgery. Dr. Bosbous can address a number of concerns you may have with your nose, including the following:
- Size (too big, too small)
- Width (too thin, too wide)
- Projection issues
- Unusual nostrils or nasal tip
- Overall appearance of profile
In addition to cosmetic issues, functional issues can also be addressed with a rhinoplasty procedure. With regard to a deviated septum, a curving of your septum may be making it difficult for you to sleep or even breathe. Dr. Bosbous is well qualified to help you with both your functional and cosmetic concerns and will partner with you to create a personalized surgical plan. These topics will be discussed during a confidential and complimentary consultation.
The Rhinoplasty Procedure
Your rhinoplasty will be done as an outpatient procedure. You will have two choices when it comes to the placement of the incisions:
Open Procedure: Incisions are made within the nostrils and across the columella (the small strip of skin that separates the nostrils.)
Closed Procedure: All incisions are hidden within the nostril.
Once the incisions are made (in either procedure) the skin and soft tissue will be elevated, allowing Dr. Bosbous to access and modify your nose’s deep structure. Following the adjustment to the bone and cartilage, the skin and soft tissue will then drape over the new framework and the rhinoplasty is complete. Dr. Bosbous understands that each patient is unique. During your consultation he will explain in detail the specific adjustments that will be required to address your individual concerns and partner with you to develop a surgical plan that will help you achieve your goals and expectations.
Rhinoplasty Recovery and Results
Dr. Bosbous will make every effort to minimize complications and provide a natural appearing result. Internal splints/tubes may be put in place along with an external splint on top of the nose to protect your nose during the early healing process. You may experience initial swelling and bruising, but this should subside over the course of a few weeks allowing you to resume social activity. Patients of rhinoplasty in the Milwaukee area who are under the care of Dr. Bosbous can expect to enjoy their final result within 6-8 months of their rhinoplasty surgery.
