Rhinoplasty surgery in Dallas, also called a nose job, involves the repair or cosmetic intervention, to change the appearance of your nose. This is often needed to correct birth defects or imperfections. If you are not happy with the appearance of your nose, Dr. Yaker and Dr. Haidenberg can help. Through this procedure, problems with your nose can be fully corrected, so you can finally feel confident in your appearance. If you are considering having this procedure, read on for more information on how it is carried out.

Your nose procedure will be done on an outpatient basis, so you will not be required to stay in the hospital overnight. To correct any problems with your nose, the surgeon will create small incisions inside your nostrils. This allows the scars to be hidden, so no one will know you have had work done. These incisions will give the surgeon access to the inner structures of your nose, so the bone and cartilage can be properly shaped. Using special tools, your nasal structures will be shaped and defined, so you can be happy with the appearance of your nose.

After your procedure, drains will be placed in your nostrils and bandaging will be on the outside of your nose. The drains help to keep your nose from swelling shut, so you can easily breathe. It also allows any fluid to be drained away from the healing areas. After a couple of days, the drains can be removed. The bandages will be removed after several days.

You can expect some swelling, bruising and discomfort for several days while your nose heals. You will not be able to see how your new nose will look, until the swelling begins to go down. It may take several weeks to months, for your new nose to completely take shape, but you will soon love the way your nose looks.
