Are You Considering Nose Surgery?

Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a nose job, is a procedure that addresses both aesthetic concerns and functional issues of the nose. By skillfully reshaping and refining the nose's appearance, rhinoplasty enhances facial harmony, boosts self-confidence, and delivers a range of benefits:

Aesthetic Enhancement

Rhinoplasty in La Jolla achieves a more balanced, proportionate, and pleasing nasal shape that harmonizes with your overall facial features.

Improved Breathing

Corrects nasal breathing difficulties caused by a deviated septum, allowing for better airflow and enhanced quality of life.

Correction of Nasal Asymmetry

Aligns the nose to achieve symmetry and balance, eliminating noticeable irregularities.

Reduced Visible Imperfections

Addresses humps, depressions, or bulbous tips for a smoother and more refined nasal profile.

Youthful Rejuvenation

Rhinoplasty can create a more youthful appearance by addressing signs of aging, such as a drooping nasal tip.

Boosted Self-Confidence

Enhances self-esteem by aligning the nose with your desired image, leading to a more positive self-perception.

The Rhinoplasty Procedure is Fairly Straightforward

Once your anesthesia is administered, the surgery will begin. Typically, a rhinoplasty procedure takes a couple of hours.

  1. Incisions: Discreet incisions are made within the nose or across the narrow strip of tissue between the nostrils.
  2. Reshaping: The nasal bone and cartilage are expertly sculpted to achieve the desired shape and symmetry.
  3. Breathing Enhancement: If addressing functional concerns, such as a deviated septum, corrective measures are undertaken.
  4. Incisions Closure: Precise sutures or dissolvable stitches secure the incisions, contributing to minimal scarring.

The Recovery Process

Dr. Bolitho will help you through a tailored recovery process after rhinoplasty surgery. Expect some initial manageable pain, discomfort, swelling, and bruising during the first week. Plenty of rest and limited physical activity are vital during this time. Stitches will be removed during the following week. Regular postoperative appointments with Dr. Bolitho will ensure things are going as planned, and over the coming weeks, the full benefits of your rhinoplasty will be evident.
