Enhance Form and Function through Rhinoplasty in Las Vegas
If your nose is out of balance with the rest of your facial features, it may detract from your overall attractiveness and make you feel self-conscious. Nasal re-shaping surgery, or rhinoplasty, performed at the Herte Center for Cosmetic Surgery by Dr. Mary C. Herte, can help create a more attractive profile and achieve facial harmony with better balance among the features of your face. And if you have trouble breathing through your nose due to abnormal nasal structures, you may also benefit from the addition of corrective procedures to your cosmetic rhinoplasty at our Las Vegas plastic surgery center.
An Individualized Approach to Rhinoplasty
Our differences are what make us distinctive. They make us special. Dr. Herte’s individualized approach for your rhinoplasty will achieve a nose that fits your face. Dr. Herte will listen to your concerns and aesthetic goal, and find out what you like and what you do not like about your nose, so that you can reach the vision of your new nose together. She will then carefully study your facial structure, and design a rhinoplasty procedure that meets your personal needs and preserves your uniqueness. Changes can be dramatic or subtle. Dr. Herte strives for a natural and balanced result. Ethnic features of your nose can be refined but preserved, in order to enhance your appearance without changing the essence of who you are.
The Rhinoplasty Procedure
Dr. Herte performs rhinoplasty at our fully accredited, private surgery center in Las Vegas. Most rhinoplasty procedures are performed under general anesthesia, administered by a board certified physician anesthesiologist for your safety and comfort. Because the nose is a complex three dimensional structure, rhinoplasty is a remarkably complicated procedure. Many different characteristics of the nose can be changed with rhinoplasty and the incision locations for rhinoplasty depend on the specific changes that are planned for your nose, but are mostly hidden inside the nose.
Structural changes in the amount and shape of the nasal cartilage are an intrinsic part of the rhinoplasty procedure in order to refine the tip and reduce how far your nose projects. At times, grafting of additional cartilage or bone may be needed to improve support of your nose or to adequately refine your nasal tip. Fracture and re-positioning of the nasal bones may be performed if the bridge of your nose needs to be narrowed for the best overall shape, or if your nose has a significant hump to remove. If a nasal bone fracture is required, a protective nasal splint or “cast” will be placed on the nose for about 10 days. Nostril size reduction may also be performed on occasion.
