What is a nose job?

A rhinoplasty, or a nose job, is a surgical procedure in which cosmetic imperfections with your nose can be addressed. There are different rhinoplasty techniques that can be used to correct issues including bumps and humps, as well as the size, shape, and contour of your nose. With a rhinoplasty, your nose can be brought into balance with the rest of your face.

Who should consider a nose job?

A candidate for a nose job may feel their nose distracts from other facial features and may lead to an awkward and embarrassing appearance. If you are dissatisfied with the look of your nose for any reason, you may want to consider a rhinoplasty.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Gonyon will carefully assess your entire face to determine if a rhinoplasty is right for you. In some instances, your face can be brought into proportion with alternative techniques such as chin implants.

How long will it take for my results from a rhinoplasty to show?

A standard recovery period from a rhinoplasty lasts anywhere from 4 to 6 weeks. During this time there can be moderate swelling and bruising, and your results will become more visible afterward. As your body continues to heal your nose will take on a more attractive shape and size, but final results may take up to one year to be fully realized.

Is a rhinoplasty permanent?

A rhinoplasty surgically changes the shape and size of your nose. As such, it is a permanent procedure. A rhinoplasty cannot stop the aging process, and your face will begin to change as you grow older. However, barring trauma, your nose will maintain its new shape and size for years to come.
