Patients in Dallas, TX and the surrounding communities who have considered plastic surgery to transform the shape, size, and overall appearance of the nose are welcome to book an appointment with Dr. Matthew Trovato to learn about the rhinoplasty procedure. Also referred to as a “nose job,” this surgery can provide functional and aesthetic benefits to the patient. Patients who have difficulty breathing through their nose, have a deviated septum, or are unhappy with the balance or overall look of their nose may be considered a proper candidate for a rhinoplasty.
Consultation with Dr. Matthew Trovato
Before starting rhinoplasty, patients need to consult with a plastic surgeon to determine if they are appropriate candidates for treatment. This evaluation may include x-rays and other diagnostic images to help the doctor determine the best course of treatment and educate patients on what to expect during the procedure. Dr. Matthew Trovato ensures that the treatment is not only effective, but is natural-looking for the patient.
Below are just a few of the concerns that can be addressed with rhinoplasty:
- Dorsal humps
- Nasal width
- Prominent or drooping nasal tip
- Post-traumatic deformities
- Birth deformities
- Internal valve collapse
- Septal deviation
The rhinoplasty procedure
The procedure itself is performed as an outpatient treatment. Patients are properly anesthetized for the treatment for optimum comfort. The doctor will address the areas of concerns while the patient is under anesthesia. Once the procedure is completed, patients will be taken to a recovery room. Patients leave the practice with another individual providing transportation, and are instructed in post-operative instructions to ensure proper healing and to reduce the risk of infection.
Patients will need to ensure they take appropriate time off of work and social activities to allow the nose to heal properly. Downtime may involve a week or two total. Patients will notice bruising, swelling, and discomfort, but are prescribed medications to manage these concerns. Patients also have a post-operative follow-up appointment scheduled during which the doctor can evaluate the healing process and make sure that the patient is happy with the results achieved.
