Some patients may not be happy with the natural appearance of their nose. In situations such as this, they may reach out to a plastic surgeon in the area of Dallas, Texas to discuss their options for reshaping and recontouring their nose. This surgery, known as rhinoplasty, is regularly performed by Dr. Rachel Walker of the Plastic Surgery Center of Dallas.
Understanding the rhinoplasty procedure
The rhinoplasty surgery, sometimes referred to as a “nose job,” is a cosmetic surgery that is used to enhance the shape, size, and overall contours of the nose. Because the nose is in a central location on the face, and projects outward in one’s profile, it is often more noticeable when it has specific flaws and imperfections. This is why it is important to seek the assistance of a professional plastic surgeon to resolve these concerns with plastic surgery.
The rhinoplasty procedure starts with a consultation appointment, during which the patient will speak to Dr. Rachel Walker about the specific concerns they have with the appearance of their nose. Nasal shape, size, projection, contours, and deformities are evaluated. If patients are a desirable candidate for the rhinoplasty procedure, a surgical date is scheduled.
The surgery itself is performed right in the practice as an out-patient plastic surgery by Dr. Rachel Walker. She will ensure patients are comfortable with proper sedation and anesthetics. During the procedure, she will use specific techniques to make sure incisions are inconspicuous to reduce the appearance of scarring. The will make necessary alterations to the nasal structures to achieve the desired results, including the nasal wall, tip of the nose, bridge, nostrils, or septum. Building and shaping the framework may also include alteration of the bones and cartilage found in the nose. With attention to detail and skilled hands, patients will love the results from their rhinoplasty with Dr. Rachel Walker of the Plastic Surgery Center of Dallas.
