The nose plays a significant role in determining overall facial harmony and is the focal point of the face. As a result, rhinoplasty is one of the most common procedures performed at Gilpin Facial Plastics. Nasal surgery, also called a “nose job,” is a procedure designed to improve the shape, size, and contour of the nose.

This procedure helps create a balanced-looking nose by carefully correcting aesthetic problems that rhinoplasty patients dislike due to their genetics. Rhinoplasty can also reverse cosmetic issues caused by injuries, and it can even correct certain breathing problems and other challenges associated with the nasal passage.

Through surgical precision and artistic insight, Dr. David Gilpin has helped many men and women in Nashville feel more comfortable with the appearance of their nose. Discover how nose reshaping surgery can help refine your profile and create a more harmonious balance with your facial features.

RHINOPLASTY NASHVILLE: EXPLORE YOUR OPTIONS

OPEN RHINOPLASTY VS. CLOSED RHINOPLASTY

There are different surgical techniques available depending on the preference of the surgeon, but as an expert in facial plastic surgery, Dr. Gilpin finds that open rhinoplasty is a superior method. During his training, he was mentored by one of the pioneers of this technique and has a vast amount of experience with it. Using this method, Dr. Gilpin can expertly shape the tip of the nose and repair more extensive issues inside of the nose. Likewise, he can do more work on the dorsal bump area, resulting in a straighter nose.

Some patients are initially drawn to closed rhinoplasty because incisions are only made inside of the nostrils, and because of the common belief that it results in less swelling. However, open rhinoplasty offers much greater precision and the ability to create a more aesthetically pleasing nasal shape in ways that are simply not possible with closed rhinoplasty. Additionally, Dr. Gilpin’s refined techniques and expertise result in minimal discomfort during nose surgery recovery.

HOW OPEN RHINOPLASTY IS PERFORMED

Before your rhinoplasty procedure, you will be put under general anesthesia. Your incision will be made across the columella, which is the small strip of tissue under the nostrils. Because the incision is made in an area that is mostly hidden, any resulting scar will be minimal. In fact, the incision typically is imperceptible once it is fully healed and is difficult to find even if you know where to look!

After the incision is made, the cartilage and nasal bones that give the nose its shape are recontoured according to your anatomy and cosmetic goals. Once the final look is achieved, the incision will be closed with very fine sutures, and a nasal splint will be placed over the bridge of the nose for protection and support. Dr. Gilpin does not use nasal packing after rhinoplasty procedures.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Is nose job permanent?

A well-performed rhinoplasty by a facial plastic surgeon is expected to be permanent. However, the younger you are when having rhinoplasty, there is a small but increased chance of your nose changing shape with age.

CAN I WEAR GLASSES AFTER MY NOSE SURGERY?

Patients who wear contact lenses can resume wearing contacts immediately after nose surgery; however, patients who wear glasses will need to take extra precaution. If you need to wear glasses during the first four-to-six weeks after nose surgery, it's recommended that you either tape your glasses to your forehead or buy a special device that allows the glasses to rest on your cheeks instead of your nose. These devices are commonly used by patients after rhinoplasty.

Why do nose jobs collapse?

Rhinoplasties collapse when they are performed in such a way that eliminates the underlying structure of nasal bone and supportive tissue. Over time, the skin above this structure sags and changes the appearance of the nose.

WHEN WILL THE STITCHES BE REMOVED AFTER RHINOPLASTY?

Stitches are typically removed six or seven days after nose surgery.

WHEN CAN I EXPECT TO SEE RESULTS FROM NOSE SURGERY?

You will probably notice an immediate improvement in the appearance of your nose, but the final results will become more evident as swelling goes down over the coming weeks and months after your procedure. It may take up to a year for the final results of your rhinoplasty to become apparent. It's normal to feel a bit anxious to see the full results, but keep in mind that your body needs time to fully heal. Every day your swelling will subside, allowing you to adjust to your newly sculpted nose.

WHERE WILL MY RHINOPLASTY IN NASHVILLE BE PERFORMED?

Dr. Gilpin's procedures are typically performed at the Cool Springs Surgery Center, which is a fully accredited, state-of-the-art surgical center conveniently located in Nashville, TN.

WILL I BE ABLE TO GO HOME AFTER MY NOSE SURGERY IS COMPLETE?

Yes, after your nose surgery is complete you will be able to go home. Rhinoplasty is usually performed on an outpatient basis. As a caveat, you will still be under the effects of anesthesia after surgery, so you will need a responsible adult to drive you home afterwards. Also, you might want to consider arranging for someone to help you out for a day or two after surgery. This will allow you to relax and maximize your recovery time from rhinoplasty.

DOES RHINOPLASTY LEAVE NOTICEABLE SCARS?

Your rhinoplasty scars will be virtually undetectable. The incision is made across the columella, which is the bridge of skin and tissue between the nostrils. The remainder of the incisions are all made inside of the nose.u00a0At the conclusion of the nose surgery, Dr. Gilpin meticulously closes the columellar incision with fine sutures, which leaves almost no trace of the incision.

WHAT ARE THE POSSIBLE COMPLICATIONS FROM RHINOPLASTY?

Complications from rhinoplasty are rare, especially when performed by a board-certified surgeon on appropriately selected candidates. However, as with any surgery, risks are still possible. General complications after rhinoplasty include adverse reaction to anesthesia, poor healing, nosebleed, and infection.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECOVER FROM RHINOPLASTY? WILL I BE IN PAIN AFTERWARDS?

Most of Dr. Gilpin's Nashville nose surgery patients report minimal pain after the procedure, and the most common concern is nasal congestion and “stuffiness” because of post-operative swelling and bruising. Patients will need about one week of downtime to recover from rhinoplasty surgery. During this time, it's important to be very gentle with your nose when washing your face or applying cosmetics. After the first five-to-seven days, people can usually return to work and resume their regular daily activities. However, strenuous exercise should be avoided until Dr. Gilpin determines that your nose has healed properly. Dr. Gilpin's follow-up schedule includes an appointment four days after surgery, then one week, two weeks, six months, and one year. At your first follow-up appointments, he can make sure you're healing optimally and clear you for physical activity, when appropriate. In the case of non-surgical rhinoplasty, downtime is very minimal. Patients might experience minor swelling or bruising, but this typically doesn't last more than a day and can usually be covered by makeup.
