Rhinoplasty, in Tucson, Az

Procedure Details

This is a 20-year-old woman from Tucson, Arizona that came to Rao Plastic Surgery to discuss options to improve the appearance of her nose. During her consultation she explained me that she did not like the bump on her nose and she wanted to improve the shape of her nasal tip. She not been experiencing breathing problems and denied any trauma to her nose. On exam she did have a prominent dorsal hump and a boxy nasal tip. Her intranasal exam did not reveal any septal deviation or enlarged turbinates. I felt she was a good candidate for an open rhinoplasty. I explained that an open rhinoplasty would allow us to address the bump on her nose and improve the shape of her tip. She underwent an open rhinoplasty at an outpatient surgery center in Tucson AZ. During her surgery I took down the cartilage and bone that was causing her dorsal hump and I used sutures to give her nasal tip better definition. She did well with surgery and was discharged after a short period of time in the recovery room. She had a nasal splint placed at the time of her surgery and that was removed after one week along with her sutures. She had an uneventful recovery. She is now six months out from surgery she loves the appearance of her nose.
