Rhinoplasty Surgery in Houston
Rhinoplasty, which literally means “shaping the nose,” is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in Houston. The treatment can dramatically improve and enhance your appearance, leading to greater symmetry in the face and improved self-esteem. During the procedure, small incisions are made, providing access to the bone and cartilage support system of the nose. Next, bone and cartilage are removed, built up, or rearranged, resulting in a newly shaped structure.
The Benefits of Rhinoplasty
Nasal surgery provides a vast array of aesthetic benefits for patients. Rhinoplasty can widen a narrow nose, increase the size of a flattened nose, or correct for extreme nose curvatures (hooked nose). Despite the complexity of the procedure, many patients recover within a few weeks, can resume their normal activities, and enjoy their new look.
In addition to aesthetic benefits, rhinoplasty has many medical benefits as well. Rhinoplasty can correct nasal trauma, correct congenital, and birth defects. For those suffering from respiratory impairment or narrow nasal cavities, rhinoplasty can help open up nasal airways allowing a patient to breathe more easily. Rhinoplasty can also correct a perforated septum or deviated septum.
For those who have nasal deformities as a result of a broken nose, collapsed bridge, or displaced nose, rhinoplasty is an excellent solution to address the individual’s aesthetic concerns. Those suffering from autoimmune disorders that affect the appearance of the nose, or those who suffered from cancer also elect to undergo rhinoplasty in order to enhance their appearance.
What You Can Expect
Dr. Freeman’s objective is always to create a natural-looking nose that complements the patient’s other facial features, enhancing their overall appearance. He accomplishes this by carefully contouring the nasal profile, reshaping the nasal tip, and subtly changing the angle between the nose and the upper lip, for a more youthful look. Patients who undergo this procedure can experience dramatic positive changes in their appearance. Because of the complex nature of the cartilage, bone, and support systems that make up the nose, it is very important that patients find a skilled and experienced cosmetic surgeon to complete the procedure.
