Rhinoplasty in Savannah, GA
As the central feature of the face, the nose is largely responsible for the overall symmetry and appearance of the face. With the rhinoplasty at Savannah Plastic Surgery, patients can enhance the qualities of the nose to best complement their other facial features. We offer this and other facial surgery procedures to the men and women living in Savannah, GA, and the surrounding areas of Chatham County.
What is a Rhinoplasty?
A rhinoplasty, often referred to as a nose job, is a facial surgery technique that is used to enhance the qualities of the nose. The nose is actually one of the most complicated features on the face. It contains more variations and unique qualities than almost any other facial feature. Unfortunately, genetics do not always work out in our favor! There are many instances where the qualities of the nose do not harmonize with the other facial features. Luckily, men and women who feel that their noses are asymmetrical, too large, or have other imperfections, can use the rhinoplasty procedure to improve the nose's appearance. As a result, these patients enjoy an improved facial balance and an increase in self-confidence.
How Much Does a Rhinoplasty Cost?
The cost of a rhinoplasty at Savannah Plastic Surgery can range from $6,000 to $7,000. The exact cost of your treatment will depend on variables that include your treatment goals and the extent of treatment necessary to achieve those results. During your consultation, we will discuss these factors in order to develop a personalized treatment plan and provide you with the exact cost of treatment. We can also determine your eligibility for health insurance coverage at this time. To learn more about our insurance policies or your payment options, please refer to our financing and insurance page.
What is the Rhinoplasty Treatment Like?
The rhinoplasty procedure is performed in our surgicenter and begins with using the appropriate anesthetic, ensuring that our patients receive a safe and comfortable treatment. For most rhinoplasty procedures, incisions will be made on the inside of the nostrils, or underneath the columella, the tissue that separates the nostrils. From here, we can remove or otherwise manipulate the tissue in the nose to produce the desired shape and size. After two to three hours of surgery, the incision will be closed and the treatment will be complete.
What is the Rhinoplasty Recovery Like?
After a rhinoplasty procedure, it is common to experience bruising and swelling in and around the nose. For most patients, this bruising resolves in a few days. Swelling, on the other hand, may persist for a few weeks before completely subsiding. Following the surgery, we will provide a nasal splint to keep the nose protected as it heals. We recommend taking a few days off of work and other activities to rest and recuperate from the surgery. Additionally, it is necessary to avoid exercise and other strenuous activities for about a month, as these can interfere with the body's healing processes.
What Rhinoplasty Results Can I Expect?
The results from the rhinoplasty procedure will be noticeable immediately, but it may take a few weeks for all swelling to subside and for the full results to become visible. Once the rhinoplasty procedure is performed, the results are permanent. However, the nose can be very fragile during the recovery period, so it is important to follow all recovery instructions closely in order to ensure optimal results.
