Rhinoplasty in Chapel Hill

Rhinoplasty Surgery in Chapel Hill with H/K/B Cosmetic Surgery


Rhinoplasty is a highly favored procedure at H/K/B Cosmetic Surgery, known for its outstanding patient satisfaction rates. The surgery employs methods like cartilage removal, manipulation of the nasal bones, and shaping of the nasal tip to assist patients in attaining a look that brings them pride.

Rhinoplasty is aimed at enhancing the aesthetic of the nose and, occasionally, to facilitate better breathing. It serves to align the facial features more harmoniously or to adjust specific aspects of the nose that may be disproportionate or misaligned. The procedure predominantly employs two techniques: closed and open rhinoplasty. However, the open technique is more commonly used as it provides the surgeon with greater flexibility to deliver excellent outcomes.

What Happens During Rhinoplasty Surgery?

In a closed rhinoplasty technique, incisions are hidden inside the nose. This is possible when the bridge and/or dorsum of the nose are the primary concern. It can also be used in cases of a deviated septum.

The open rhinoplasty technique allows for all cartilage and bone components from top of the nose down to tip to be clearly visualized and accurately shaped. This includes an abundance of detailed procedures to correct everything from a large dorsal hump to oversized or flaring nostrils.

The scar crosses the columella – the column of skin between the nostril openings – and extends into the nasal folds. The scar is usually undetectable within six to twelve weeks. There is usually swelling following a rhinoplasty, which may persist for as long as six months, however the new shape is visible upon splint removal at approximately 5 days after your procedure. Numbness of the tip, which is temporary, may also be experienced for several weeks but will get better with time.

Questions To Ask Your Chapel Hill Rhinoplasty Nose Surgeon

It’s important to make sure all of your questions are addressed during your consultation. Here are some subject you may want to bring up during your personalized, one-on-one visit with your surgeon.

  • What kind of anesthesia will be provided, and by what kind of anesthesia provider?
  • Is it an advanced anesthesia provider, such as what we have at H/K/B? An advanced anesthesia provider is the gold standard in safety and care.
  • Is the procedure being performed at an accredited surgery facility? You should be sure that your procedure is being performed in an accredited facility. Accreditation Boards include AAAASF, which is the American Association for the Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgical Center, AAAAHC, the American Association for the Accreditation of Health Care Facilities, and JACHO, the Joint Commission for the Accreditation of Hospital Facilities. All of these organizations are recognized as proper certifying bodies, and the surgical facility should be certified by one of these entities.
  • Is the plastic surgeon and the staff advanced cardiac life support certified? Although this is not required, having the physician and all clinical staff certified in advanced cardiac life support such as we have at H/K/B ensures the highest level of supervision, evaluation, and care of all patients should there ever be an emergency.
  • May I have a tour of the surgical facility? Is the surgical facility properly outfitted? Is there proper cleanliness, proper lighting, and proper space for the procedure as well as the recovery room and, overnight facilities, which are commonly necessary following important rhinoplasty nose surgery and body contouring procedures?

Additionally, the level of pain and discomfort is typically lower than expected, making rhinoplasty a relatively painless experience for most.

The number of follow-up appointments can vary based on the intricacy of the surgery and the surgeon’s approach, generally ranging from two to eight visits over several weeks.

The timeline for returning to exercise after rhinoplasty is determined by your surgeon, depending on how complex your surgery was. Typically, most patients are able to engage in their usual physical activities within a few weeks.
