Rhinoplasty / Nose Reshaping

Rhinoplasty is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures. It's performed to reshape, reduce or augment a person’s nose. Results depend on the patient’s nasal bone and cartilage structure, facial shape, skin thickness and age.  Insurance may cover 
rhinoplasty if it is done for reconstructive or medical reasons, but not for cosmetic purposes.

This outpatient procedure typically performed under general anesthesia and takes one to two hours unless more extensive work needs to be done. Dr. Mitchell uses one of two techniques:  
The incision is either made within the nostrils, thus hiding scars after surgery, or across the columella (the vertical strip of tissue separating the nostrils) in an “open” procedure, where scars are small and hidden on the underside of the base.  In both procedures the skin is lifted, the bone and cartilage sculpted, and the skin replaced and stitched closed.
