With the nose being the central point in the face, it is very defining for the overall aesthetic of the face. When you are not happy with its shape this can be of a big influence to your self-confidence. A small alteration with regards to the aesthetics can already make a great difference, which makes nose remodeling a very popular surgery. Rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as a ’nose job’, can dramatically improve the aesthetic of the nose. In some cases it also improves the respiratory function. Remodeling the nose can reduce an overly large nose and add form and volume to a small nose. The procedure can also reshape the nose to correct bumps and other distortions. The result is a more balanced, harmonious facial appearance. In the following menu you can find more information on rhinoplasty. In case you would like our professional advice or if you would like to make an appointment, please contact us.

Consultation

During a first non-committal consultation, Dr. Fantozzi will discuss all the different aspects of the nose remodelling procedure. He will discuss your aesthetic wishes and subsequently advise you which method of treatment will let you meet those wishes in the best way possible. Furthermore you will be informed on the results you may expect, possible downtime and temporary limitations after the surgery. You can rest assured that you will always receive honest and professional advice during this consultation.

Procedure

There are two surgical approaches for this procedure – Open Rhinoplasty and Closed Rhinoplasty. During most surgeries it is possible to make use of the Closed Rhinoplasty technique. This involves making an incision inside the nostrils. In other cases it might be necessary to perform Open Rhinoplasty, during which an incision is made from outside the nose. Splints are usually placed inside the nose following surgery to maintain shape while the area heals. Because the nose is such a defining part of your face, it is of utmost importance that the aesthetic wishes and current dissatisfaction are analyzed during a non-committal consultation with Dr. Fantozzi. Subsequently it can be determined which approach will lead to the desired results, while always keeping the safety of our clients in mind. Regardless of which approach is used, you can rest assured that Dr. Fantozzi and his highly-skilled team will make no concessions when it comes to the quality and safety of the procedure.  Rhinoplasty is usually performed under local anesthesia and completed in about one hour.

Aftercare

Following the surgery you will temporarily need to use bandages around the nose area. The first couple of days you will experience swelling, which will naturally resolve itself. During the consultation Dr. Fantozzi will further inform you on what can be expected with regards to downtime and possible temporary limitations following the nose correction. To secure the quality and results of the surgery, we will schedule an appointment for a check-up following the procedure if desired.
