Miami Rhinoplasty Information

What is rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure to reshape the nose, whether it be for aesthetic goals or reconstructive purposes (to correct birth defects or breathing problems). Depending on the patient's desired effect, the outcome of surgery can be very subtle or dramatic.

Many consider rhinoplasty to be the most complex operation in cosmetic surgery. Since facial structure and nasal anatomy vary greatly between different people, rhinoplasty must be individualized for each patient who visits our practice at Bal Harbour Plastic Surgery Associates in Miami. Through rhinoplasty, plastic surgeon Dr. Salzhauer will enhance your nose so that it blends with your facial structure while still appearing completely natural.

Undergoing Rhinoplasty in Miami

At Bal Harbour Plastic Surgery Associates in Miami, rhinoplasty is performed under general anesthesia. It typically takes about one to two hours to complete the surgery. However, more complicated cases may take longer. Following surgery, a splint will be applied to your nose by Dr. Salzhauer in order to help it maintain its new shape.

Dr. Salzhauer will prescribe pain medication that you can take to alleviate any discomfort you might experience in the weeks following your rhinoplasty procedure. You can also apply cold compress to reduce any swelling. You should be out of bed after one to two days and able to return to most normal activities after about one to two weeks.

Open vs. Closed Rhinoplasty

Dr. Salzhauer can perform either open or closed rhinoplasty at his practice, depending on your unique surgical needs and the complexity of your case. In open rhinoplasty, surgery is performed through an incision made across the strip of tissue separating the nostrils. This type of surgery is great when dealing with tip work for instance. Open rhinoplasty provides a easier access and a better view of the inside of the nose, so it is often the preferred method, especially in more complex cases.

In closed rhinoplasty, all surgery is performed from an incision within the nose, so scars are hidden. This type of nose surgery is generally done for requests such as hump reduction. When you have your initial consultation with Dr. Michael Salzhauer in Miami, the different methods will be discussed and recommended depending on your specific surgical need. Both methods lead to beautiful, natural looking results.

Miami Rhinoplasty Revision Surgery

Dr. Salzhauer frequently performs rhinoplasty revision surgery on patients who have undergone nose surgery elsewhere. Rhinoplasty revision surgery, or secondary rhinoplasty, is meant to correct mistakes that may have been made with other surgeons, or to fix undesirable results, and nose specialist Dr. Salzhauer uses different techniques in this procedure to allow for the most natural and desirable outcome.

As a board-certified rhinoplasty specialist, he will take the time to understand why you are unhappy with your nose in order to create the most successful plan for your surgery. Dr. Salzhauer uses digital imaging to facilitate this process so that he completely understand his patients' requests and so the patients have the best idea of the results they should expect.
