Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures. It is comparable to the facelift in its popularity. If you’re thinking about getting a rhinoplasty, you should know that the timing is not always right. Here is what to know about the different types of rhinoplasty and how to schedule your consultation with Dr. Paquet.
Types of Rhinoplasty
Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures because it can correct nasal problems like breathing difficulties, snoring, and sleep apnea by restoring nasal shape and size. It can also correct cosmetic problems and bring better balance to the face. There are actually different types of rhinoplasty, and Dr. Paquet can help you determine the right approach during a consultation.
The liquid rhinoplasty is also known as nasal filler, often used to build up the nasal structure without surgery. It works by injecting hyaluronic acid fillers into the nose to enhance its size or shape. It’s a temporary option that can help you explore your cosmetic goals before undergoing surgery.
This procedure can be done in two ways: it can be done through an incision across the columella (or strip of skin between the nostrils) or completely inside the nasal passages. These are sometimes called open and closed rhinoplasty respectively.
This surgery involves using an endoscope to perform the procedure in the nose. An endoscope is a long, thin surgical tool that has a live-feed camera on the end of it. It gives your plastic surgeon more access through a tiny incision and allows them to perform surgery without as much trauma on the nearby tissues as traditional surgery.
Nasal Tip Surgery
Nasal tip surgery is a less invasive technique than a traditional rhinoplasty. It typically involves reducing the tip of the nose or changing its shape if it’s not balanced with the rest of the features. It can be performed along with a traditional rhinoplasty or on its own.
The revision rhinoplasty is a reconstructive procedure performed after you’ve undergone an initial rhinoplasty. You might need a revision rhinoplasty because you dislike your initial results, you experienced complications, or you’re experiencing breathing problems after your initial procedure.
Rhinoplasty can have various price ranges depending on where you live, the surgeon, the type of procedure you choose, and the needs and objectives of your nose. Dr. Paquet will give you a full cost estimate of your procedure during a consultation.
