Rhinoplasty in Austin TX – FAQs

The nose is one of the most prominent facial features. When someone is not happy with the appearance of their nose, it can be a constant source of mild to moderate stress. For rhinoplasty, Austin TX patients can find a highly skilled and trusted physician in Dr. Patel at Devenir Aesthetics. If you are considering rhinoplasty, here are few FAQs to consider.

How is the nose manipulated during the rhinoplasty procedure?

Cartilage from the mid-point to the tip of the nose is often reduced or augmented, depending on the patient’s needs. In some cases, material from other parts of the body, such as cartilage from the ears can be used to augment areas of the nose.

Will my breathing be affected by the rhinoplasty procedure?

The nasal septum is another part of the nose that can impact its appearance. If a deviated septum is adjusted, breathing may improve. A quality surgeon will be able to maintain and sometimes improve the structural integrity of the nose.

Can I have rhinoplasty performed a second time?

If this is not your first time, there will be less tissue available to work with. In addition, most of the available tissue remaining will have hardened from previous nose jobs. A second rhinoplasty procedure is possible with a highly skilled and experienced surgeon like Dr. Patel.

How do I get an idea of the final result before I agree to the procedure?

Our clinic in Austin TX utilizes computer imaging technology to help give you and the doctor a preview of your goals.

What can be done for the tip and bridge of my nose?

Common concerns with the nose bridge include excessive sloping, or a crooked or humped nasal bridge. All of these issues can be corrected. The nasal tip can also be reshaped for enhanceddefinition.

What can I expect after the rhinoplasty procedure?

A protective nasal splint is placed around the nose for 5-7 days following surgery. All internal sutures will dissolve, and external sutures are removed after 5 days. Most of the swelling will subside within a few weeks. Our doctor will check up on you throughout the healing process to make sure everything is healing properly.
