What is Rhinoplasty?
At its best, plastic surgery can transcend science and begin to resemble art. Such is the case with rhinoplasty, a procedure that refines the features of your nose to make it more proportionate to the rest of your face. At Janiga MDs, we offer several variations on rhinoplasty, including standard, tip-only and rhinoplasty combined with septoplasty.
Traditional rhinoplasties refine the features of the nose to make it more proportionate to the rest of the face. By contrast, a septoplasty is an internal nasal surgery performed to correct a deviated septum, which may be inhibiting your ability to breathe or the sinuses to properly drain. This procedure is performed primarily for medical purposes. When combined with a rhinoplasty, the two can correct common septum-related issues while also improving on the overall cosmetic appearance of the nose.
Tip-only rhinoplasty refines the tip of your nose, reducing a bulbous tip or giving definition to a poorly defined tip. Because this is one of the most artistic procedures in plastic surgery, experience is crucial for achieving optimal results.
Dr. Janiga performs rhinoplasty using general anesthesia in a Reno-area surgery center. The procedure typically involves an incision underneath the nose and on the inside of the nose. The cartilage and bone of the nose is often reshaped. Sometimes cartilage grafts are used to improve and refine the appearance of the nasal tip and dorsum. Dr. Janiga works very closely with his patients to help you achieve your desired look. This procedure takes approximately one to three hours with one to two hours of recovery time before leaving the surgery center.
