Types of Rhinoplasty

Reduction Rhinoplasty

Reduction rhinoplasty is one of the most common nose reshaping procedures. This surgery helps patients by creating a more proportional nose to their other facial features. This is achieved by addressing bumps on the bridge of the nose and extended nasal tip or flared nostrils. During the procedure, areas of bone or cartilage will be sculpted to create the perfect shape.

Augmentation Rhinoplasty

Augmentation rhinoplasty is another popular treatment. During this surgery, bone or cell grafting is performed on the nasal tip or bridge. This can help straighten the area and add volume to areas where there may be depressions or other issues.

Post-Traumatic Rhinoplasty

If an individual has suffered an injury to the nose, they may take advantage of post-traumatic rhinoplasty. Patients can use this treatment to correct the nose and remedy the nasal septum. Commonly, post-traumatic individuals have suffered a broken nose. If an individual has experienced a significant nose injury, they might need to wait several months before undergoing a comprehensive surgical procedure.

Reconstructive Rhinoplasty

Patients might require reconstructive rhinoplasty if they have lost all or part of their noses to an injury, skin cancer, or another major illness. A specialist reconstructs the nose during the surgery using skin grafts, flap techniques, and other innovative approaches. Due to the intricate nature of this procedure, patients might need multiple surgical treatments over several months.

Adolescent Rhinoplasty

Most of the time, medical professionals recommend teen patients wait until their noses have stopped growing before receiving a rhinoplasty. There are exemptions, specifically in situations of trauma or breathing problems. When young patients undergo rhinoplasty, it requires a dedicated medical professional who can safeguard the still delicate nasal features. Furthermore, a medical professional should ensure that the patient is psychologically ready for the procedure.

Aging Rhinoplasty

Although the nose stops growing around age 16, the shape may transform over time. Areas may start to droop, or the nasal passages might tighten, triggering breathing problems. With aging rhinoplasty, a surgeon can alleviate these concerns to make breathing more manageable and offer a patient a more youthful, renewed look.

Ethnic Rhinoplasty

Ethnic rhinoplasty utilizes the same techniques as other nose reshaping surgeries but is designed for specific ethnic demographics. Generally, ethnic rhinoplasty describes treatments performed on African American, Afro-Caribbean, Oriental, Hispanic, and Middle Eastern descent. These patients usually have softer nasal shapes, and the surgeon should take special care to protect these unique attributes.

Rhinoplasty Recovery

Recovery after rhinoplasty in Manhattan is a crucial phase following the surgical procedure aimed at reshaping the nose. During the initial days, patients may experience mild discomfort, swelling, and bruising around the nose and eyes. Nasal congestion and breathing difficulties are common due to internal swelling. Most surgeons will place a splint on the nose to support and protect it during healing.
Strenuous activities should be avoided for several weeks, and patients should follow post-operative instructions diligently. While the majority of swelling subsides within a few weeks, complete healing and final results may take several months. Dr. Espinoza will provide recovery instructions to help you recover quickly and achieve the best aesthetic results.
