A rhinoplasty is a procedure designed to reshape the nose. People seek rhinoplasty for several reasons. Some are unhappy with bumps or irregularities of the dorsum of the nose. Others feel that their nose is too wide or large for their face. For still others, they are unhappy with the tip of the nose, and may feel it is too bulbous or boxy, or droops downward too much. Whatever the reasons, visit Dr. Mitchell for a free consultation to see if rhinoplasty may be right for you.
Rhinoplasty is typically performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia. Incisions are made within the nostrils as well as a single, small incision across the columella, the skin that lies underneath your nose between your nostrils. Through these incisions, the nasal skin is elevated and the underlying cartilage and bone is exposed.

From here, Dr. Mitchell uses a variety of techniques to alter and reshape this nasal framework in order to produce the results you desire. Recovery takes approximately two to three weeks. A lightweight splint is applied after surgery to protect the new shape. The splint is removed within a week, along with the external sutures along the columella. Swelling and bruising around the eyes may be present, and typically resolves within a few weeks.
