What is Rhinoplasty?

Commonly known as a nose job, Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic surgery procedure that corrects and reconstructs the nose. The upper portion of the nose is bone, and the lower part of the nose is cartilage. Rhinoplasty can alter the bone, the cartilage, or the skin of the nose. There are two types of Rhinoplasty: Cosmetic surgery and reconstructive surgery.

Reconstruction restores and improves the form and function of the nose caused by nasal injuries, birth defects, or breathing problems. Cosmetic Rhinoplasty improves the appearance of the nose.

What can Rhinoplasty treat?

Rhinoplasty surgery can change the size of the nose, the width of the nose at the bridge, visible bumps or depressions on the bridge of the nose, the nasal tip, nasal asymmetry, and nostrils.

Who is a good candidate for Rhinoplasty?

A good candidate for Rhinoplasty is an individual whose facial growth is complete, is a non-smoker, is in overall good health, and someone who has realistic expectations.

What can I expect during surgery?

Dr. Carvajal will sedate you either by intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. Incisions will be made inside the nose (hidden) or across the columella (the strip of tissue at the bottom of the nose that separates the nostrils).

Open rhinoplasty incision across the columella

For a few days following your surgery, splints and gauze will hold the nose in place as it heals.

Will my health insurance pay for Rhinoplasty?

In some cases, a portion or all of Rhinoplasty is covered by insurance. If Rhinoplasty surgery is to improve breathing function, even if it is performed in conjunction with cosmetic Rhinoplasty, it is considered reconstructive and could possibly be covered by your health insurance. Along with prior authorization from your insurance carrier, a detailed physical examination is required to verify the cause of your breathing impairment.
