What is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty provides patients with a nose that is more proportionate to their other features, and that is sculpted to fit their unique facial anatomy. Ideally, the nose does not draw attention to itself but rather provides a bridge between the smile and the eyes. Dr. Pruitt favors a conservative, minimally invasive approach that refines the nasal contours without extensive trauma to the facial tissue. His state-of-the-art rhinoplasty procedures are always personalized, with results that reflect the client’s most cherished aesthetic ideals.

When Should I Consider Rhinoplasty?

While some patients can achieve modest, temporary improvements through a dermal filler-based non-surgical rhinoplasty, most will require surgical changes to see the dramatic, youth-enhancing results they desire. Ideal candidates are healthy, non-smoking individuals who have realistic expectations for their results based on a private consult with Dr. Pruitt and his team.

Rhinoplasty may be ideal if you struggle with any of the following concerns:

  • A prominent dorsal hump
  • A flattened or elevated nasal bridge
  • Overly wide nostrils
  • An enlarged, upturned, bulbous, or drooping tip
  • A crooked nose
  • Asymmetry
  • Breathing problems

I was very fortunate to train, many years ago, under world-renowned plastic surgeons. Beyond that training I have endeavored to elevate my craft always enhancing and refining what I can achieve for my patients. The technical aspects of surgery must be combined with the aesthetic artistry that is so very important to every procedure. During more than 20 years of plastic surgical experience in private practice, it has been my privilege to take care of some of the most recognized faces in the world. I take pride in providing the highest quality care while consistently achieving aesthetically excellent results.

Preparing for Your Rhinoplasty Procedure

Your preoperative consultation is one of the most important steps that you can take in your cosmetic journey. It gives Dr. Pruitt a chance to work closely with you as he designs the surgical plan that will ultimately create your life-affirming results.

During the consultation, Dr. Pruitt will learn about your unique cosmetic goals and analyze your physical characteristics. He will perform a thorough medical assessment and investigate any risk factors that may be present. Your surgery will then be scheduled, and you will receive detailed information about costs and financing.

Your Rhinoplasty Experience

Whenever possible, Dr. Pruitt strives to perform surgeries under IV sedation and local anesthesia rather than using general anesthesia. With this approach, there is no tube placed down the trachea, and no machine breathing is required. Patients wake up quickly, often within minutes, and remain very comfortable. 

Dr. Pruitt uses cutting-edge fiberoptic technology that allows him to perform surgery through limited incisions, reducing postoperative scarring and minimizing downtime. He handles the nasal tissue with extreme care and gentleness, which produces a softer, less swollen postoperative look, often with little to no discoloration and expedited healing times.

Rhinoplasty Techniques

There is more than one way to perform rhinoplasty, and Dr. Pruitt will choose a technique that best aligns with your desired results.

Open Rhinoplasty

Open rhinoplasty is performed with an incision made across the columella, the strip of skin that separates the nostrils at the base of the nose. This incision will allow Dr. Pruitt to restructure your nose, reshaping cartilage and bone as needed.

Closed Rhinoplasty

The closed rhinoplasty technique is preferred by many patients thanks to its lack of post-surgical scarring. Here, the incision is placed inside the nostrils. This technique is typically chosen in cases where minimal to moderate reshaping is required.

What to Expect from Your Recovery Period

Recovery after a rhinoplasty procedure will typically take between one and three weeks, depending on the specifics of your procedure and your personal healing capabilities. You can expect to experience some bruising and swelling once your surgery is over. This is completely normal and can be well-managed with pain medications provided by the doctor.

You should keep your head elevated while at rest for about a week, as this will help to minimize post-surgical swelling around the nose and eyes. Your nose will be in a splint to help encourage proper healing, and you will need to avoid all vigorous activities for at least a period of three weeks.
