Rhinoplasty in Greensboro

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


Rhinoplasty is an exceptionally popular procedure at H/K/B Cosmetic Surgery, renowned for its notably high patient satisfaction levels. The surgery involves various techniques, including the removal of cartilage, adjustment of nasal bones, and reshaping of the nasal tip, enabling patients to attain an appearance they are delighted with.

Rhinoplasty is primarily performed to enhance the aesthetics of the nose and, in some cases, to enhance breathing capabilities. It aims to harmonize the overall facial features or adjust specific regions of the nose that are either too large or misshapen. The procedure generally involves two methods: closed and open rhinoplasty. However, the open method is more frequently employed as it offers the surgeon greater flexibility to ensure excellent outcomes.

What Happens During Rhinoplasty Surgery?

In closed rhinoplasty, incisions are made internally within the nostrils, keeping them out of sight. This approach is especially useful for alterations to the nasal bridge or dorsum and is also applicable for correcting a deviated septum.

Open rhinoplasty, on the other hand, offers complete visibility and access to the nose’s structural components, from the bridge to the tip. This technique enables precise sculpting and is essential for addressing various issues, such as reducing a prominent dorsal hump or adjusting disproportionately large or wide nostrils.

The incision for open rhinoplasty runs across the columella—the strip of skin separating the nostril openings—and might extend into the nasal creases. Typically, the scar becomes virtually invisible within six to twelve weeks. Postoperative swelling is common and can last up to six months, but the reshaped nose is often evident once the splint is removed, about five days post-surgery. Temporary numbness at the nose tip is common but usually improves over the following weeks.

Questions To Ask Your Greensboro Rhinoplasty 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

In the healing phase after rhinoplasty surgery, it’s typical for patients to experience bruising, swelling, and a sensation of nasal congestion, which can be somewhat uncomfortable. However, many patients are pleasantly surprised at how swiftly the healing process begins, often within just a few days. Additionally, the level of pain and discomfort is frequently much lower than anticipated, making rhinoplasty generally a tolerable procedure.

The frequency of follow-up appointments can vary based on the complexity of the surgery and the surgeon’s preference, usually ranging from two to eight visits spread over several weeks.

When to start exercising again post-surgery will be advised by your surgeon and will depend on the specifics of your rhinoplasty. Generally, most patients are able to resume their normal physical activities within a few weeks.
