Rhinoplasty in Charleston

Rhinoplasty Surgery in Charleston, SC with H/K/B Cosmetic Surgery


Rhinoplasty is a highly favored procedure at H/K/B Cosmetic Surgery that’s known for its outstanding patient satisfaction rates. Nose 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 intended to enhance the nose’s appearance and sometimes to facilitate easier breathing. It aims to create a more balanced and harmonious alignment of facial features or to adjust certain parts of the nose that may be oversized or irregularly shaped. In rhinoplasty, there are primarily two approaches used: closed and open rhinoplasty. The open technique, however, is favored more frequently because it allows surgeons the greatest flexibility to achieve superior results.

What Happens During Rhinoplasty Surgery in Mt Pleasant?

In the closed rhinoplasty approach, incisions are made inside the nostrils, making them invisible externally. This technique is particularly effective for addressing the nasal bridge or dorsum, and it is also suitable for correcting a deviated septum.

The open rhinoplasty method provides complete visibility and access to the nasal structure, from the upper part of the nose to the tip. This allows for precise modifications of everything from significant dorsal bumps to enlarged or protruding nostrils.

An incision is made across the columella—the tissue that separates the nostril openings—and it extends into the natural folds of the nose. The resulting scar typically fades and becomes imperceptible between six to twelve weeks. Postoperative swelling is common and may last up to six months, yet the reshaped contour of the nose is usually apparent once the splint is removed, about five days post-surgery. Temporary numbness at the nose tip may occur but generally resolves over several weeks.

Questions To Ask Your Charleston 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? At H/K/B, we are proud of our fully certified surgical facilities and are excited to have any prospective patient tour our facilities.

Rhinoplasty Nose Surgery Recovery

After undergoing rhinoplasty, it is common for patients to experience bruising, swelling, and nasal congestion, which may cause slight discomfort. However, many are pleasantly surprised by the rapid healing that occurs just days after the procedure. Additionally, patients frequently note the unexpectedly low level of pain and discomfort associated with the surgery, making rhinoplasty generally not very painful.

The number of follow-up appointments after rhinoplasty can vary based on the specific details of the surgery and the surgeon’s protocols, typically ranging from two to eight visits spread over a few weeks.

When it comes to resuming physical activities, the decision will depend on your surgeon’s advice and the specifics of your surgical procedure. Generally, most patients are able to return to their regular exercise routines within a few weeks.
