What Advantages Does Rhinoplasty Offer?

Rhinoplasty may have highly favorable consequences on an individual’s self-image and look. At Raleigh Plastic Surgery Center it is of the utmost importance that the patient has reasonable expectations and a thorough comprehension of the procedure. Doctors often demand two consultations for rhinoplasty patients in order to guarantee good communication between the patient and cosmetic surgeon and to address any issues and concerns thoroughly.

Why Do People Choose Rhinoplasty?

  • Patients choose rhinoplasty to treat a variety of nose-related issues. Common grievances include:
  • very big nose
  • a dorsal hump (bump on the bridge of the nose)
  • a swollen apex (tip too round or amorphous)
  • An overly large nose (nostril flare)
  • a flat nose (lack of a bridge)
  • A nasal deformity (deviated septum or nose)
  • difficulty breathing via the nose

A rhinoplasty may solve all of these concerns and more.


You will have a pre-operative appointment around two weeks prior to surgery. You will sign the surgical permission form, have photographs taken, and get an information package at this time. The pre-operative package contains complete pre- and post-operative instructions. Aspirin, ibuprofen, and other blood-thinning drugs must be avoided for at least two weeks prior to surgery. Additionally, nothing should be consumed after midnight the night before surgery.

Concerning the Operation

Rhinoplasty (nose job) is done in a certified outpatient surgery center as an outpatient procedure. Under general anesthesia. Having an anesthesiologist present enables a surgeon to focus only on achieving the optimal aesthetic outcome, as opposed to monitoring the patient’s vital signs. Depending on the intricacy of the surgery, the procedure takes between 2 and 4 hours. A natural and polished look of the nose is always the aim of Rhinoplasty.
