Cosmetic Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty)

San Antonio Rhinoplasty Surgeon Dr. Matt Bindewald Discusses Cosmetic Nose Surgery

· Rhinoplasty

The nose is perhaps the most prominent facial feature so it is not without reason that rhinoplasty (cosmetic nose surgery) is one of the most popular of all plastic surgeries. In 2014, nose reshaping was the most common cosmetic surgery for men and second most common for women.

Many people feel their nose detracts from their whole face, taking away from the natural beauty of their other facial features. There are numerous ways that an individual’s nose can be out of harmony with a person’s face. Whether you want your nose narrower, the “bump” softened, the tip more defined, or a drooping tip lifted slightly upward, all of these can be executed with precision. It is also important that a nose functions properly – that is to say, not only allow for unobstructed breathing through the nasal passages on the inside, but also can properly support a pair of glasses on the outside.  A rhinoplasty procedure can improve all of these attributes: profile, shape, and functionality.

Rhinoplasty is a very personalized procedure. It is important that you have a clear idea of how you would like your nose to look and, at the same time, realize that there are limitations to the procedure. During the initial consultation, you may be asked to look in a mirror and point out exactly what you would like to see improved. Dr. Bindewald will work with you to discuss your goals and create the look you desire.

Rhinoplasty is truly an art form.   It is amazing the types of dramatic changes that can be achieved given the various techniques that Dr. Bindewald has within his skill set as a plastic surgeon.

Dr. Bindewald typically performs rhinoplasty under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis. The entire surgery takes between three and five hours. Many patients return to work about a week after surgery, but strenuous activity and exercise should be avoided for four to six weeks.

The goal of rhinoplasty is a nose that looks natural and blends harmoniously with your unique facial features. Since the healing process is gradual, you should expect to wait up to one year to see the final results of your rhinoplasty. You are likely, however, to begin enjoying your new look within weeks of your surgery. Patients are generally extremely happy with the outcome of their procedure and feel more confident in themselves.
