Rhinoplasty in Austin – What to Expect
Rhinoplasty in Austin, commonly known as nose reshaping surgery, improves a wide range of cosmetic issues. These include an overly projecting nose, drooping tip, bump or excessive fullness along the bridge, flared nostrils, among others. Dr. Daniel J. Leeman delivers natural results by taking into account his patients’ gender, ethnicity, nasal anatomy, and facial features. To further ensure a high patient satisfaction rate, our renowned facial plastic surgeon will also consider your cosmetic goals and body frame. The idea is to create a new nose that looks as if you were born with it.
Your Consultation for Rhinoplasty
Be ready to disclose your medical history, use of medications including supplements and recreational drugs, any previous surgeries on the nose if there are any, and any other medical conditions during your consultation. By being honest with our surgeon in Austin, he can determine if you’re a good candidate for rhinoplasty and/or help you control risk factors so you can achieve your optimal results, which is the key to a short recovery and great cosmetic results.
During the consultation, you should also describe your cosmetic goals down to the tiniest detail. Take note that good patient/doctor communications and rapport is the key to achieving satisfying results.
Rhinoplasty in Austin comes in different forms. For example, there is open rhinoplasty, and there is the closed technique. In most patients, Dr. Leeman uses the closed technique, which in turn promotes shorter recovery compared to the open technique. The open rhinoplasty, meanwhile, is reserved for patients who require more complex surgeries.
Rhinoplasty in Austin is typically done as an outpatient procedure. Dr. Leeman can reshape the bone and cartilage to correct the appearance of a drooping or bulbous tip, bump along the bridge, the excessive fullness of the bridge, or any other cosmetic issue that bothers you.
Take note that it may take up to a year before you see the final results. This is particularly true for someone with very thick skin, which needs more time than thin skin to redrape to the new contour.
