What Can We Do?
When you turn to us for rhinoplasty surgery in Chicago, you will meet with our team of surgeons to evaluate your current nose and determine the best shape for you. We look at all aspects of your face, including the shape, position and size of other features, your profile, and other contributing factors. We then work with you to determine what results you want from the surgery to create a new shape. We create your new look on a computer first so you can see just what you will look like when the surgery is complete. We can adjust any aspect of your nose, including the shape, size and position. Whether you are unhappy with the way your nose looks or you want resolution for breathing or other problems, we are here to help.
How Does It Work?
Once you make the decision to undergo rhinoplasty, you may wonder what the procedure will be like. When we perform the surgery, we use sedation or general anesthesia so you won’t experience any pain during the procedure. We then make several small incisions inside the nose, eliminating the possibility of visible scarring after the procedure is over. Unfortunately, there may be some situations where external incisions may be necessary to achieve the look you want, however, we do try to avoid this as often as possible. If you are reducing the size of your nose, we will remove bone and cartilage from the nose so you have a straight profile. If we must remove a bump, we will carefully file away cartilage until we achieve the shape you are looking for. We can also address any breathing issues during the surgery.
As with any surgery, there may be some complications or side effects after rhinoplasty surgery in Chicago. There are minor side effects that are normal and will go away with time, including headaches, swelling, light bleeding, stiffness and bruising. After surgery, it is recommended to rest at home for one to two weeks to allow for proper healing. Contact us today to discuss your options for rhinoplasty surgery in Chicago.
