Nose Surgery

Candidates for Nose Surgery

Nose Surgery, also known as Rhinoplasty, is sometimes performed on patients with a deviated septum or other breathing problems. In this situation, insurance will often cover most of the costs for the procedure. Rhinoplasty is also an option for those suffering from certain birth defects. Nasal Refinement can correct and reshape the tissues and bone to better reflect the structure of a well-functioning and attractive nose, for those who may be unhappy with their facial profile. Given the intricacies of Nasal Refinement surgery, where a few millimeters may affect the entire outcome, you will be good hands with a skilled surgeon like Dr. Rogers.

The Procedure

Open Rhinoplasty – small bridging incision
Closed Rhinoplasty – all incisions are positioned inside the nostrils
Reduction Rhinoplasty – reduction of the overall size of your nose
Repair of Deviated Septum – correction of the placement of the septum for a better airway

The Recovery
