Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery)
If you are considering rhinoplasty in Indianapolis or Carmel, Dr. Janet Turkle 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.
The Rhinoplasty Consultation
Generally, during your confidential consultation, you will first meet with our staff and watch a rhinoplasty surgery video. Then you will meet with Dr. Turkle so she can get to know you as well as discuss your goals and expectations from the nose surgery. She will also discuss your medical history.
We find many patients have trouble visualizing what their final surgical result will look like and some patients find it difficult to exactly communicate their goals from rhinoplasty.
To bridge the gap, we use VECTRA 3D Imaging which provides a general simulation of what you might expect from your surgery.
The VECTRA Imaging procedure begins with a 3D photograph being taken of your face. We then use your actual image and the system tools to manipulate your photo to show you simulated “after” photos giving you a realistic animation of what result you can expect after your procedure. Viewing and discussing these simulated photos with Dr. Turkle will help guide her in performing your surgery to your specifications so that you are sure to love the end result!
The Rhinoplasty Surgery
The Rhinoplasty surgery begins with the doctor 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.
