What is involved in a rhinoplasty procedure?

A rhinoplasty is performed under general anesthesia in our office in St. Paul, Minneapolis. The procedure starts with making an incision inside the nose cavity. The incision can also be made across the patient’s columella, the strip of tissue that separates the nostrils to make the incision lines less visible. The tissues will be raised to expose the underlying bone and cartilage of the nose. Changes will then be made to the nose structure to achieve the desired results.

A rhinoplasty procedure requires the reshaping of the nose. This might involve the reduction or trimming of the nasal bone or the removal of cartilage to create and ideal shape. Conversely, a nose can be reshaped by the introduction of tissue to help the nose achieve a natural and symmetrical shape.

In some cases, a nose will need to be broken and reset in order to straighten the structure. When done properly, a rhinoplasty can also improve the ability of patients to breath easier.

Once Dr. James A. Hoffman achieves the perfect contour, the incisions will be closed and will be lined along the creases of the nose to make it inconspicuous. A splint will be positioned outside the patient’s nose to help support the new contour and nasal packing will be applied to provide additional support for the new shape.

The experience was smooth and the outcome is fantastic

I am 2 years post my rhinoplasty and I still say a thank you to Dr. Hoffman every single morning when I look in the mirror. I was told he was a gifted surgeon and they were spot on. The experience was smooth and the outcome fantastic. I cannot say enough good things about his skills and how he helped make my nose fit my face. Love it! Thank you Dr. Hoffman!! Rhinoplasty Patient

What should patients expect after a rhinoplasty?

After a rhinoplasty procedure, patients can expect the wounds to heal in about a week. There will be bruising and swelling in the area surrounding the nose and below the eyes, which should gradually dissipate in a few weeks. Week after week after the rhinoplasty, patients in St. Paul, Minneapolis will notice that their nose contours will slowly refine and develop as they have envisioned the final results to be. The nose may be tender to the touch for a few months, but will continue to lessen in sensitivity over time. Patients will be able to fully appreciate the maximum effects from their rhinoplasty a year after the procedure was completed.
