Rhinoplasty

For cosmetic or reconstructive purposes, nasal surgery (also known as rhinoplasty) reshapes the nose. Our surgeons can change the size of the nose, change the shape of the tip or bridge of the nose, narrow the span of the nostrils, or change the angle between the nose and upper lip. In some cases, nasal surgery can be used to correct a birth defect or relieve breathing problems.

CONDITIONS IMPROVED

Nose shape, breathing problems.

BENEFITS

Gain relative proportion and contour to your face, while improving nasal breathing ability.

THE DETAILS

Dr. Thomas performs this procedure at the hospital or surgical center, usually on an outpatient basis. Following surgery, the patient’s face will feel puffy and the nose may ache. Healing after nasal surgery is slow and gradual. Bed rest is recommended for the first full day after surgery, with most activity resuming within approximately one week. Swelling will subside in about two weeks, but the final result can take several months to appreciate.

Patient Reviews

“I’ve worked at the hospital for 18 years and had seen Dr. Thomas take care of his patients. He always put them first and would come in on his days off to check on them. The combination of his experience and skills and his genuine care for people made it so easy to choose him for my surgery. I know he is honest and would never do anything if he didn’t think it was 100% right for the patient. He gives people realistic expectations and I truly believe that he is not just concerned with how someone looks but how they feel in the end. Personally he made me feel very comfortable. Having plastic surgery usually means bringing attention to the one part of your body you don’t like and Dr. Thomas made me feel completely at ease. I was always self-conscious about my appearance and was teased about my nose my whole life. Having this procedure changed everything about how I felt about myself and my only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner.”
