r6The nose is one of the noticeable facial features that highlight the beauty of the face. That is why it can be discouraging to have an unusually-shaped nose. There is a cosmetic surgery that can aid that problem, though. Rhinoplasty, or a nose surgery, here in our Minneapolis plastic surgery practice can improve the appearance of the nose, as well as enhance its proportion to promote facial harmony. A rhinoplasty in Minneapolis is also imperative to be undergone by people with structural abnormalities in the nose that can affect one’s breathing.

What rhinoplasty can achieve

A nose job can change the size and proportion of your nose and nose bridge. It can improve one’s nose profile by removing any bumps and indentations present. A rhinoplasty can also change the nose angle so that it is proportional to the patient’s upper lip.

Not only those, the procedure can alter the nasal tip orientation and correct any nasal deviations to achieve symmetry. Structural abnormalities of the nose that can hinder proper breathing can also be corrected through rhinoplasty. It can restore the nose back to its normal structure after a trauma due to an accident. It can also be done to enhance the overall look of the patient.

How it works

The procedure is usually done with the patient under intravenous sedation or general anesthesia, depending on the patient’s preference. An incision can be made inside the cavity of the nose or across the columella. With this, the incision lines would be less visible. Then, the nasal tissues are raised, exposing the underlying nasal bone and cartilage. Right then, changes on the nose structure are made to achieve the patient’s desired results.

The surgical wound is expected to heal in about a week. To answer more of your queries, contact us at 651.686.4548 or fill out this online contact form for an appointment with Dr. Hoffman.
