Rhinoplasty Surgery (Nose Job) To Reshape Or Straighten Your Nose Or Nasal Pathways
Perhaps no other plastic surgery procedure has the potential to change a person’s appearance more than Rhinoplasty surgery.
Dr. Harris thoroughly enjoys talking about Rhinoplasty surgery and creating a plan that meets each patient’s expectations. Traditionally, the best time for patients to this type of surgery is at the age of 17 or 18 because this is when the overall facial bony structures have reached adult proportions. Also, this is a time of change in young individuals lives as they are frequently moving from one social environment to another and a change in nasal appearance is readily accepted.
As one ages, extreme caution must be used in creating drastic changes in appearance. By this time, most family and friends are used to the visual shape of one’s nose. It is accepted and loved for the way it is.
Because of his extensive practice and experience with facial rejuvenation surgery Dr. Harris has had the opportunity to address Rhinoplasty with many of his patients over age 50. Frequently, he will incorporate a subtle Rhinoplasty procedure at the time of a facelift surgery of which does not drastically change the appearance, rather it rejuvenates and matches better the overall facial features. Recovery from Rhinoplasty surgery is typically two weeks and make up can be used to cover any residual swelling or bruising.
