Rhinoplasty in Bakersfield
Every year in Bakersfield and the rest of the country, over half a million people are interested in rhinoplasty, (nose surgery) to improve the appearance of their nose. Some are unhappy with the nose they were born with, and some with the way aging has changed their nose. Nose jobs fixes this problem. For others, an injury may have distorted the nose, or the goal may be improved breathing or a functional rhinoplasty. But in Bakersfield and elsewhere, one thing is clear: nothing has a greater impact on how a person looks than the size and shape of the nose, especially in Bakersfield. Because the nose is the most defining characteristic of the face, a slight alteration with a rhinoplasty can greatly improve one’s appearance.
Is Rhinoplasty In Bakersfield For You?
Skin type, ethnic background, and age are important factors to be considered in discussions with your surgeon prior to your rhinoplasty. Before the nose is altered, a young patient must reach full growth, usually around age fourteen or fifteen. As we age, the nasal tip tends to droop, the tip widens, and the hump on the nose enlarges, which can affect not only appearance, but also breathing.
Before deciding on rhinoplasty, ask if any additional surgery might be recommended to enhance the appearance of your face or neck. Many patients have chin augmentation or eyelid surgery in conjunction with a rhinoplasty to create a better balance of features.
Is Rhinoplasty In Bakersfield Worth It?
Whether the rhinoplasty is desired for functional or cosmetic reasons, in Bakersfield or elsewhere, your choice of a qualified board-certified facial plastic surgeon is of paramount importance. Your surgeon will examine the structure of your nose, both externally and internally, to evaluate what you can expect from rhinoplasty. You will more likely be pleased with the results of your surgery if you have a realistic idea of what nasal surgery can and cannot do for you. We perform all of our surgeries in Bakersfield and surrounding areas in accredited outpatient surgery centers, and we only use board certified MD anesthesiologists for your safety. Bakersfield nose jobs are very safe.
Understanding Rhinoplasty in Bakersfield
The incisions are made inside the nose so that there are no scars on the face; uncommonly, a single small horizontal incision may have to be made in between the nostrils. Next, certain amounts of underlying bone and cartilage are removed, added to, or supported, to provide a newly-shaped nasal structure. The tissues are then redraped over the new frame and the incisions are closed. A splint is applied to the outside of the nose to help retain the new shape while the nose heals.

What To Expect After Rhinoplasty
In the immediate days following your nose job, you may experience bruising and minor swelling in the eye area. Applying cold compresses and keeping the head elevated often reduce the swelling, bruising and discomfort. The nasal splint is removed seven days after surgery, at which time you will see your new nose. Recovery times in Bakersfield, on average, varies from 7 to 14 days.
