Previous injuries, genetics, and environmental factors can alter the shape and structure of your nose. Minor aberrations can certainly have a cosmetic effect on the appearance of your face and impede the passage of air through one or both of your nostrils.
In many of these situations, an endonasal rhinoplasty can be used to alter the nasal structure of your nose. This can correct the natural passage of air while also improving your nose’s appearance. The level of alteration required will depend on the severity of the deviation in your nasal structure.
Dr. Banki and Dr. Paletta can often perform and endonasal rhinoplasty in a single outpatient appointment that requires full sedation. It’s best to arrange for a ride home afterward while the sedative effect gradually dissipates. You will also need to refrain from eating and drinking after midnight the evening before.
Our cosmetic surgeons will provide you with additional post-operative care information during your consultation appointment at their Warwick, Rhode Island, clinic. This might also include prescription anti-inflammatory or pain management medication to help maintain your comfort while the altered tissues heal.
If you live in the Warwick, Rhode Island, area and you have an issue with the structure or passage or air with your nose, you should call 401.732.1440 to set up an endonasal rhinoplasty consultation at Artistic Contours.
