Rhinoplasty in Miami
If you’re considering a rhinoplasty or nose job in Miami, book a free consultation with one of our skilled Board Certified Plastic Surgeons at Pierini Esthetic Surgery.
The nose is one of the most defining features of the face, but it shouldn’t stand out. Rhinoplasty – also known as nose reshaping or a “nose job” – is a delicate surgical procedure performed to enhance the shape, size and appearance of the nose and bring harmony to your overall face. Rhinoplasty can reduce the size of your nose, reduce bumps, reshape the nostrils and even add volume to your nose if needed. The end result is an esthetically improved nose that you no longer have to hide behind. Rhinoplasty is not only cosmetic, but combined with nasal deformity revision, it can also correct defects that cause breathing difficulty and snoring – such as a deviated septum and airway obstruction.
What to expect
At Pierini Esthetic Surgery, our doctors use great care and artistry to shape the nose to best complement your face. We have perfected the rhinoplasty or nose job in Miami, thanks to the customized approach we take to every nose and face.
Your rhinoplasty begins with a consultation to determine your surgical options. Once you are clear on how you would like your nose to be reshaped, you may also discuss other procedures that may also enhance your appearance. These could include a chin enhancement, brow lift or eyelid lift. Your doctor will take pictures (frontal and side view) and show you a computerized impression of the kind of results you can expect from your cosmetic surgery in Miami.
Our plastic surgeons will perform your rhinoplasty on an outpatient basis at our comfortable surgery center in Miami. There are two incision techniques that can be used to access the cartilage and bones in your nose. These are referred to as open and closed rhinoplasty. Our plastic surgeon will discuss with you the type of rhinoplasty you will be having in advance of your procedure. In an open rhinoplasty, the incision is made outside the nose and at the base of the nostrils. This allows for more extensive surgeries but will leave a small, barely-visible scar between the nostrils. In a closed rhinoplasty, the incision is made inside the nostrils. The surgical access is somewhat restricted in comparison; however the scars are completely hidden after surgery.
A nose job is an outpatient procedure performed in our Florida registered outpatient facility and you will be able to return home the same day. While rhinoplasty is considered a simple cosmetic operation, precautions are recommended to ensure a fast recovery. After nose reshaping surgery, gauze will be placed inside your nostrils and a splint will be applied to provide structural support and maintain the shape of your nose. This also helps guard it from bumps or injury, especially during sleep.
During the first few days after surgery you may experience minor pain or discomfort. Keep your head elevated as much as possible and use ice or cold compresses during the first 48 hours of recovery. Be careful to keep nasal passages moist and clean and avoid bumping or blowing the nose for the first two weeks after your rhinoplasty in Miami. While you may feel better right away, do not exercise until cleared by your doctor because this increases your risk of bleeding and swelling. Also, it is very common to experience swelling and bruising around the nose and eyes, so patients typically take time off of work and avoid social functions during the first few weeks after nose surgery in Miami.
A simple nose job can be life changing.
When you look your best, you feel your best. For many of our patients, having a rhinoplasty not only gives them the nose they’ve always wanted, it also boosts their happiness and self-confidence.
