Rhinoplasty in Huntersville

Rhinoplasty Surgery in Charlotte, NC with H/K/B Cosmetic Surgery


Rhinoplasty, commonly known as nose reshaping surgery, is a highly sought-after procedure at H/K/B Cosmetic Surgery, boasting a very high satisfaction rate among patients. This surgical technique involves the removal of cartilage, reshaping of the nasal bones, and sculpting of the nasal tip, enabling patients to attain a look that fills them with confidence.

Rhinoplasty surgery aims to enhance the nose’s aesthetics and, occasionally, to facilitate better breathing. This procedure can align the facial features more harmoniously or adjust parts of the nose that are asymmetrical or overly prominent. Rhinoplasty typically employs two primary methods: closed and open rhinoplasty. However, the open technique is more frequently used as it provides the surgeon with greater flexibility to deliver excellent outcomes.

What Happens During Rhinoplasty Surgery?

In the closed rhinoplasty approach, incisions are made internally within the nostrils. This method is particularly suitable when modifications to the bridge or dorsum of the nose are needed, as well as in instances involving a deviated septum.

On the other hand, the open rhinoplasty technique provides complete visibility of the nasal structure from the upper part down to the tip, allowing for precise modifications. This method facilitates a range of detailed adjustments, from reducing a prominent dorsal hump to resizing nostrils that may be too large or wide.

The incision in open rhinoplasty runs across the columella—the strip of skin separating the nostril openings—and may extend slightly into the creases of the nose. Typically, the resulting scar fades and becomes barely noticeable between six to twelve weeks post-surgery. Post-operative swelling is common and can last up to six months, though the new contour of the nose is often apparent once the splint is removed about five days following the surgery. Temporary numbness at the tip of the nose may last for a few weeks but generally improves over time.

Questions To Ask Your Charlotte, NC 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

During the recovery period after a rhinoplasty nose surgery, bruising and swelling usually occur as well as nasal congestion (a stuffy nose). While this can be slightly uncomfortable, most patients are surprised by how quickly it begins to heal after a few days. Furthermore, rhinoplasty patients are often quite surprised at the low level of pain and discomfort they feel. For most patients, rhinoplasty is not a very painful procedure to experience.

Follow-up visits vary depending on the complexity of your procedure and the preferences of the surgeon, but typically range from 2- 8 visits over the course of a few weeks.

Resuming exercise will be determined by your surgeon and based on the complexity of your procedure. However, in most cases, patients can resume most physical activities within a few weeks.
