What is a Rhinoplasty?

A rhinoplasty adjusts the appearance or function of the nose. For some people, the nose feels out of balance with the rest of the facial features or has a shape they do not feel comfortable with. For others, a problem with the nose has affected the person’s breathing and caused them physical issues. 

A cosmetic rhinoplasty improves the nose’s size, shape, or overall appearance. Since most crooked noses do not cause a functional problem, they are still considered cosmetic even though they cause a lot of distress. 

Some crooked noses or other issues like a deviated septum can affect a person’s breathing ability. In this case, Dr. Schalit performs a functional rhinoplasty with the goal of restoring the full function of the nose

How to Fix a Crooked Nose

While experienced injectors can improve a mild crooked nose with dermal filler, most crooked nose corrections require a rhinoplasty. During the procedure, you will feel nothing under a general anesthetic. Dr. Schalit will usually separate the skin of the nose from the bone and cartilage. He then rearranges the structure of the nose to correct the shape, size, or symmetry of the nose. At this point, he will correct the structural problem that results in a crooked nose. 

What are the Benefits of a Rhinoplasty?

If you have felt self-conscious about your crooked nose, this insecurity may have held you back. You will not see that crooked nose in the mirror anymore, and this gives many people a powerful boost of confidence. This confidence may allow you to feel more outgoing and social. 

If your crooked nose left you with difficulty breathing, rhinoplasty can let you breathe freely again. A crooked nose can block airflow, so rearranging the bone and cartilage provides a clear passage. Dr. Schalit will also make sure to create a pleasing appearance to the nose as he recontours it. 

What is Recovery Like From a Rhinoplasty?

During the first days of your recovery, you will wear a splint on your nose to protect it. Your nose may feel swollen and stuffy, and you may have bruises around the eye area. Most people can go back to work and light activities within seven to ten days, although you should wait for Dr. Schalit’s approval before moving on to more strenuous activities.

“Almost two years ago, on April 5th 2017, I FINALLY was able to afford to get my rhinoplasty. I had broken my nose when I was 8 years old and got bullied for it for a long, long time. For the almost decade that I had that broken looking nose, I was never really happy with the way I looked no matter what I wore, no matter how I changed my hair, or how much makeup I had on. My nose always got in the way of how I saw myself and how I let others see me. I hated it completely. I had zero confidence. My mom was finally able to afford the rhinoplasty, and after the consultation they made me an appointment immediately. I couldn’t believe just how quick they got me in. The day of my surgery, I was excited as ever, and the nurses, anesthesiologist, and of course Dr. Schalit were all so caring and helped ease any anxiety I may have had. I am completely ecstatic with my experience at Florida Oral & Facial with Dr.Schalit. He did an amazing job, he fixed my nose, made it look normal again. I have confidence now, and don’t hate how I look. You can definitely trust him if you’re needing or wanting anything done. He did an absolutely incredible job, and I am so beyond happy with the results. It’s the best decision I have ever made, 100%.” *
