Commonly Asked Questions:
What Can Rhinoplasty Do For Me Aesthetically?
Are There Risks Associated With Facial Plastic Surgery?
After rhinoplasty, there is a risk that one’s breathing may be worsened after surgery, as the nose plays a vital role in breathing. Dr. DeRosa understands how to manage both the nasal airway and the external appearance will likely be able to reduce this risk significantly. Another risk with rhinoplasty surgery is damage to the nasal skin, which can be devastating and irreversible. Since the nose will continue to heal months, years, and decades after surgery, some problems may not be recognized or noticed right away. Dr. DeRosa believes that follow-up after surgery is very important to help try to prevent or reduce such problems. She also has extensive experience correcting such problems when patients have had previous nasal surgery/rhinoplasty. Although there are risks associated with rhinoplasty, undergoing surgery with a physician who is well qualified and experienced in rhinoplasty can help to reduce such problems.
What Different Ways Can Rhinoplasty Be Performed, and Where Will My Stitches Be?
Which method is used is typically determined by the specific goals for surgery, the nasal anatomy, and the surgeon’s preference. In general, there will be incisions along the inside of the nostrils, and dissolvable sutures (stitches) are used, which do not need to be removed. When the nose is opened using an external approach, there will be a scar along the columella (the area of the nose that touches the upper lip in the midline). Often there are stitches at this site that need to be removed typically within the following week. Most patients after rhinoplasty do wear an external cast on the nose for approximately one week.
