What Is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty, also called a nose job, is a common plastic surgery procedure to restructure the nose to bring better balance and proportions to the face. A rhinoplasty also serves as a functional medical procedure to improve breathing issues by correcting structural problems within the nose, such as a deviated septum.

Many different techniques can be used to modify the components of the nose and address and correct aesthetic issues, such as:  

  • Small bumps
  • Dorsal hump
  • Wide dorsum
  • Drooping nasal tip 
  • Bulbous tip
  • Under or over rotation of the nasal tip
  • Enhance symmetry 
  • Improve nasal and facial contours
  • Balance proportions

What are the Benefits of Rhinoplasty?

The goal of any rhinoplasty is to bring harmony to and enhance your facial features. Rhinoplasty can enhance the appearance to boost your self-confidence and improve the function of the nose to help you feel your best. By addressing the size, shape, or proportions, rhinoplasty can help restore nasal appearance and function.

Other aspects patients look to correct through rhinoplasty are:

  • Repairing damage from injuries
  • Correcting breathing difficulties
  • Adjusting proportions at the bridge or nostril
  • Addressing visible humps or depressions

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

Non-surgical rhinoplasty is an option for temporarily altering one of the most prominent facial features. Typically, non-surgical rhinoplasty uses injectables, like dermal fillers and Botox®, to temporarily address aesthetic issues, enhancing the nasal appearance without incisions, anesthesia, pain and discomfort, or a lengthy recovery. 

However, non-surgical rhinoplasty is not an effective solution for patients looking to dramatically restore crooked or broken noses or to repair breathing issues.

Am I a Good Candidate for Rhinoplasty?

Typically, candidates for rhinoplasty in Baton Rouge include patients in overall good health, looking to enhance the appearance of their nose. Dr. Daugherty recommends rhinoplasty candidates:

  • Be at least 18 years old 
  • Live a healthy lifestyle
  • Be non-smokers, or willing to quit prior to surgery
  • Not be pregnant or nursing 
  • Have realistic expectations and a positive outlook

What Can I Expect During a Baton Rouge Rhinoplasty?

Check-In and Anesthesia
Plan on arriving about an hour prior to your procedure. After you’ve been checked in by our team, Dr. Daugherty will ensure you are comfortable and answer any last questions. After you are safely given general anesthesia, Dr. Daugherty will begin your rhinoplasty.
Rhinoplasty Procedure
Depending on the anatomy of the nose, Dr. Daugherty will create well-concealed incisions in the columella and inside the nose to address structural and aesthetic issues. The procedure can range from three to five hours, depending on the extent of the procedural plan.
Rhinoplasty Aftercare
Following your procedure, an external nasal splint and an internal splint, or packing, may be placed on/in the nose. Typically, the internal nasal splint is removed two to five days after surgery while the external nasal splint is removed five to seven days after. Bruising and swelling are common following rhinoplasty. While swelling typically resolves in three to six months, it can take up to a year to fully resolve. Most patients can resume normal activities two to four weeks following surgery. However, you should avoid strenuous activities, including exercise and heavy lifting, for four to six weeks. For best results, thoroughly follow Dr. Daugherty’s post-procedural instructions.
