What is Involved in Nose Surgery Procedures
New Jersey Nose Job | Best Plastic Surgeons in NJ
Palisade Plastic Surgery wants you to look and feel your best. We offer nose surgery, or rhinoplasty, for patients who wish to change the appearance of the nose. One specific type of rhinoplasty is nasal reconstruction surgery. This is done for patients who have a malignant skin growth on the nose or wish to correct a disorder like a deviated septum.
A rhinoplasty can be performed for cosmetic or medical reasons. It can balance the size of the nose with other features of the face, modify parts of the nose like the width at the nose bridge or the shaping of the nostrils, reduce humps or depressions on the nose, and can contour the tip of the nasal. There are two types of techniques for a rhinoplasty. The first is open rhinoplasty. This type makes an incision across the tissues between the nostrils. A closed rhinoplasty makes an incision within the nostrils. For a rhinoplasty, patients will be under IV sedation or general anesthesia. The procedure lasts between one and two hours and many patients return to work within one week.
Nasal reconstruction surgery is a complex procedure that requires a skilled surgeon. Before having the procedure, whether it is for a deviated septum repair or malignant skin removal, the nasal area will be assessed to determine where to make incisions and how to avoid scar tissue. There are a few different options for the nasal reconstruction surgery. These include a linear closure, a split-thickness or full-thickness graft or a cutaneous flap alternative. Local anesthesia is usually all that is needed during the surgery, and sutures are removed within five to seven days.
