Rhinoplasty in Knoxville

Rhinoplasty Surgery in Knoxville, TN with H/K/B Cosmetic Surgery


Rhinoplasty is a highly popular surgery at H/K/B Cosmetic Surgery in Knoxville, TN, and it receives very high satisfaction scores from patients. The procedure involves techniques such as removing cartilage, adjusting nasal bones, and sculpting the nasal tip, enabling patients to achieve a look that they feel confident about.


Rhinoplasty is intended to enhance the nose’s appearance and sometimes to better respiratory function. It aims to harmonize the overall facial features or adjust specific parts of the nose that may be oversized or malformed. The procedure primarily involves 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 the closed rhinoplasty method, incisions are made internally within the nose, ideal when focusing on the bridge or dorsum, or when correcting a deviated septum.

Conversely, open rhinoplasty provides comprehensive access to the nose’s structural elements, from the top to the tip, facilitating precise visualization and modification. This technique is used for extensive adjustments, such as reducing a prominent dorsal bump or refining large or outward-flaring nostrils.

The incision in open rhinoplasty is placed across the columella—the tissue between the nostrils—and may extend into the nasal creases. Typically, this scar fades and is hardly noticeable within six to twelve weeks. Post-surgery swelling is common and can last up to six months, but the reshaped nose is generally visible once the splint is removed about five days after the surgery. Temporary numbness in the tip of the nose may occur but usually diminishes over a few weeks.

Questions To Ask Your Knoxville 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

During the recovery phase following rhinoplasty, it’s common for patients to experience bruising, swelling, and a sensation of nasal congestion. Many patients find these symptoms mildly uncomfortable but are often pleasantly surprised by the swift improvement in the days following the surgery. 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.
