Rhinoplasty is a procedure designed to change the shape of your nose and create a more balanced appearance to your face. This may be achieved by narrowing the nose, reshaping the tip of the nose, narrowing the size of the nostrils, or removing bumps from the nose. Rhinoplasty surgery may also correct birth defects or breathing problems.

Typically, surgery is performed after the growth of the nose is complete, usually around 15 or 16 for girls, somewhat later for boys. However, rhinoplasty may be performed on adults as well. After surgery, a splint is applied to the nose in order to maintain its new shape. Nasal packs or soft plastic splints may also be placed in your nostrils to stabilize the nose.
The rhinoplasty procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia or conscious sedation on an outpatient basis. Most patients return to their usual daily activities after one to two weeks. We have performed countess Rhinoplasty procedures in the Chicago area.
