Many people are not born with a perfect nose. Noses that are too big are especially difficult, as they almost seem to take over your face, drawing attention away from your other features. Patients who have issues with a large nose often complain about disproportion in their looks, causing them to hide their nose in photos or skip being photographed altogether. Reduction Rhinoplasty can provide comfort to these individuals by resizing their noses to better suit their other features. Dr. Peter Abramson and his team of experts at Rhinoplasty Atlanta are ready to help you change your appearance to correct unbalanced facial symmetry.
Reduction Rhinoplasty does exactly what it says – it reduces the size of the nose. When patients opt for this type of surgery, they can choose to reduce the overall size of the nose or concentrate on specific areas that need to become smaller, like the tip, a hump or bump, and more. During this process, the resizing is often done by removing cartilage and/or bone from the nose to achieve the desired shape and size.
About the Procedure
Regardless of what you’re changing, most Rhinoplasty procedures are approached in a similar fashion. They all begin with incisions, either in the closed or open style. Regardless of where your incisions are placed, cartilage and/or bone will be removed to lessen the size of your nose. If you are only looking to reduce the size of certain aspects of your nose, like the nostrils or a hump, Dr. Abramson will concentrate on these areas. When your reduction Rhinoplasty is finished, your nose will be more proportional to your other facial features and less likely to draw unwanted attention.
Aftercare and Recovery
Reduction Rhinoplasty involves the same recovery time frame and strategies of any type of Rhinoplasty. Following the procedure, patients will experience swelling and discomfort for several days as the nose and surrounding tissues begin to heal. Bruising and swelling will subside gradually as the results of your procedure begin to emerge. Most patients return to work and resume regular activities within seven to ten days.
