If you are unhappy with the shape of your nose or if you have breathing problems, nasal surgery may be a good option to help treat the problem. Nasal surgery, or rhinoplasty, can help remove unsightly lumps on the nose, change the overall size or shape of the nose, change the size or position of the nostrils and even reduce the size of your nose at the bridge. If you are considering nasal surgery for either cosmetic or medical reasons, please call our offices to schedule a consultation with a skilled San Diego cosmetic surgeon.

While most people who get rhinoplasty do so to change the overall appearance of their nose, many people who have had birth defects or who have been involved in accidents also need to undergo treatments to help restore the shape of their nose and correct certain breathing problems. Deviated septums are a particularly devastating medical condition that requires plastic surgery treatments in San Diego. It is important to recognize that not all breathing problems can be treated through rhinoplasty and that those who wish to change the shape of their nose may be able to do so through non-surgical means. When you schedule a consultation with your San Diego cosmetic doctor, he can evaluate your condition and needs to help you decide if rhinoplasty is right for you.

If you can be benefitted through rhinoplasty, you will need to take special actions to prepare for your surgery. If you are a smoker, you will need to drop the habit both before and after the surgery, at least until the area has completely healed. You will also need to avoid consuming alcoholic beverages for the week before and after surgery. As of midnight the night before your procedure, you will be asked to avoid eating or drinking, which will help make the surgery go smoother for your cosmetic surgeon in San Diego. Certain medications will also need to be discontinued prior to your treatment, such as anti-inflammatory drugs that may increase the risk of bleeding. Be sure to tell your San Diego plastic surgeon about all medications you take, even non-prescription or holistic treatments.

When you think nasal surgery may help you feel more self-confident or may help improve your breathing, it is important you get the facts about rhinoplasty from a skilled plastic surgeon in San Diego. If you have any questions, please call our offices to schedule a consultation.
