Nose Surgery - Utah County And Salt Lake County
Rhinoplasty helps our Salt Lake City, Provo and Orem area patients feel better about the balance of their nose with the rest of their face. This surgical procedure is one of the most popular facial plastic surgeries in the United States, and for good reason – even subtle changes to the nose can produce a remarkable improvement and enhanced self-image. Rhinoplasty can also be combined with a facelift for patients who also want to reduce the signs of facial aging.
About the Procedure
Our Provo and Salt Lake City rhinoplasty patients can reshape the nose by:
- Reducing or increasing size
- Removing a hump
- Changing shape of the tip or bridge
- Narrowing the span of the nostrils
- Changing the angle between the nose and the upper lip
The surgery also can be performed to relieve some breathing problems, birth defects, or injuries, in which case it may be fully or partially covered by health insurance. The outpatient procedure usually takes from 2 to 4 hours, and usually requires general anesthesia.
Recovery and Results
During recovery, you may experience swelling, bruising around the eyes and nose, headache and/or nasal stuffiness. You may need to take 1 to 2 weeks off from work, depending on how concerned you are about your appearance. The shape of the nose will continue to change subtly over the course of up to a year, but you should be able to see significant improvement in just a few weeks.
