Rhinoplasty, nose job or nose surgery is one of the most common procedures performed in plastic surgery. Dr. Trussler has specialty training in all aspects of rhinoplasty, including cosmetic and functional rhinoplasty, septoplasty, as well as ancillary procedures commonly performed with rhinoplasty such as turbinate reduction, correction of traumatic deformities and chin augmentation. Rhinoplasty is performed to reshape the nose to fit the face and provide facial harmony. The nasal procedure can reduce or augment a person’s nose, remove a hump, narrow nostril width, change the angle between the nose and the lips, or to correct injury, birth defects, or other problems that affect breathing. Results can be dramatic but do depend on the patient’s nasal structure, facial shape, and skin thickness. Rhinoplasty is commonly performed on men and women, as well can be performed after a teenager has completed their growth spurt.
Revision (Secondary) Rhinoplasty
Many patients who undergo previous rhinoplasty, septoplasty, or nose surgery, are unhappy with their results and function. Dr. Trussler does have advanced training and experience approaching these complex problems commonly seen in the secondary rhinoplasty patient. The common complaints which can be corrected with a secondary rhinoplasty include incomplete correction or over correction of the nose. Cosmetic and functional problems can be corrected using nasal, ear or rib cartilage. Secondary rhinoplasty should be performed no earlier than one year after the first nasal surgery.
