- An overly large nose
- A nose that is too small
- Large bumps/humps on the nose
- A drooping tip
- Crooked bridge
- Nasal injury
- Nasal obstruction
If you are unhappy with the look of your nose, or if it is causing you physical discomfort due to injury or an obstructed airway, our plastic surgeons at Coastal Empire Plastic Surgery can help achieve a more balanced appearance with a nose surgery in Savannah, GA.
Your Rhinoplasty Procedure
Your surgery will be performed under general anesthesia. A small incision will be made within the nostril to minimize visibility of future scarring. Once the underlying structure of your nose is revealed, your plastic surgeon can reshape the cartilage, bone and tissue to the size and profile that you desire.
Sometimes the hump is removed, and typically the nose is thinned out at the tip and slightly elevated. It is usually necessary to narrow the nose at the time of surgery. A splint and packing are removed by the 5th day and most people are presentable in approximately a week to 10 days. If you have difficulty breathing, your insurance may pay for a portion of the rhinoplasty procedure.
