Rhinoplasty and Septoplasty
The shape of your nose can define the appearance of your entire face. Cosmetic nose surgery, or Rhinoplasty, can help to improve the size and shape of your nose, as well as its relationship to the rest of your face. A similar procedure, Septoplasty, is non-cosmetic plastic surgery designed to restructure the inside of your nose in order to allow for better breathing. In many cases, this can be covered by a patient’s insurance carrier.
Often, these two procedures are combined for patients who want to correct both their inner breathing pathways as well as the outward appearance of their nose.
Dr. Wooten’s Rhinoplasty Procedure
Dr. Wooten performs Rhinoplasty through a small incision at the tip or from the inside of the nose. The main focus of the Rhinoplasty procedure is to alter the bone and cartilage of your nose. As stated above, a Septoplasty, a nasal surgical procedure performed to correct breathing difficulties, can be performed simultaneously with a Rhinoplasty. The key difference between the two procedures is that Rhinoplasty is designed to correct the appearance, while Septoplasty is performed in order to permit improved breathing.
Problems Fixed With Nose Surgery
Nose surgeries can address many different problems, including nose size, width of the bridge of the nose, bumps or ridges in the nose, a large, drooping, or bulbous tip, or any asymmetries. When the patient has their initial consultation with Dr. Wooten, they will find that coming to Beleza for a “nose job” does not mean they must have a standard nose at the end of the procedure. Dr. Wooten listens to each patient’s individual concerns, then creates a nose that is congruent with your face. Each nose will look different for each patient and will be as individual as you are.
