If you’re dissatisfied with the appearance of your nose because it’s large, wide, ill-proportioned, or damaged from injury or birth defects, we can help with rhinoplasty in Gahanna and Upper Arlington, OH. Rhinoplasty is the clinical term for a “nose job”, a procedure that restores proportion to your nose and more harmony to your natural facial aesthetics. A rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure, but our modern surgical facilities are equipped with the technology and resources, including full anesthesia options, to offer this treatment in-office.
Your surgery is completed by our board-certified oral and facial surgeon, Dr. Erik Evans. He’s highly qualified for these procedures due to his dental and surgical background and is highly experienced in functional and aesthetic treatments involving the face. With specialized and extensive training in cosmetic procedures like rhinoplasty, he can skillfully reshape your nose and provide you with a facial appearance that brings you confidence!
Rhinoplasty is generally a cosmetic procedure, so we take great care to ensure your surgery results in the aesthetic improvements you desire. At your consultation, we’ll take photographs and use preoperative computer imaging software to digitally alter the shape, size, and position of your nose. You’ll be able to see the results of surgery before we begin treatment and provide input as to how it looks. Using these digital photos as guidance, we’ll carefully sculpt and reshape your nose during surgery, either removing or adding bone and cartilage to get the desired result.
If you have a deviated septum, a functional concern that affects breathing, we can correct this while also improving nose aesthetics if necessary. You’ll be completely relaxed and comfortable in our surgical suite during this procedure while under custom anesthesia administered and monitored by our anesthesiologist. When your surgery is complete, we’ll place a splint and bandages to provide protection and support to your nose during your recovery.
Any swelling from the surgery will subside in a couple of weeks, though you might notice subtle changes to the contours of your nose for up to a year after surgery. This is why Dr. Evans takes great care to reshape your nose so that as it heals and changes over the next few years, it remains natural-looking and aesthetic with your facial appearance. Not all surgeons are qualified or skilled enough to perform surgery at this level of precision. Dr. Evans, through extensive training and experience, has mastered the art of rhinoplasty and can provide you with results that look amazing, even many years later.
