Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery)

If you are considering rhinoplasty in Indianapolis or Carmel, Dr. Janet Turkle or Dr. Stanley Harper can help. Rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job or surgery to reshape the nose, is a common cosmetic procedure that can have profound results on a person’s appearance and self-confidence. Rhinoplasty at our Indianapolis practice can accomplish any number of changes, including size augmentation or reduction, a narrowing of the nostrils, changes in the bridge or tip of the nose, correction of a deviated septum causing breathing problems, or an alteration to the angle of the nose and upper lip. Regardless of the specific purpose, rhinoplasty creates a more contoured and shapely nose. Approximate price for rhinoplasty:

Rhinoplasty Cost: $3725-$5,500

The Rhinoplasty Surgery

The Rhinoplasty surgery begins with the doctors making an incision, either from within the nose or across the columella (the vertical strip separating the nostrils). The nose then is sculpted to the desired shape and size. Finally, the surgeon stitches the incision. Rhinoplasty is performed on an outpatient basis.

After Rhinoplasty Surgery

Following Rhinoplasty, a splint is applied to the nose to maintain the new shape. Patients can experience some swelling and bruising around the eyes and nose, although medication greatly reduces any discomfort you may experience. Stitches are usually removed in five to seven days after Rhinoplasty, and patients can return to work in seven to 10 days.
