DESCRIPTION

Dr. Vinyard can customize rhinoplasty surgery to meet your specific needs. Rhinoplasty is an outpatient surgical procedure that can alter the structure and appearance of the nose by reducing a dorsal hump, altering the shape and projection of the tip, changing the width of the nostrils, or by changing the angle between the nose and upper lip. Rhinoplasty can also be performed to help correct nasal injuries and birth defects. Nose reshaping procedures can involve treating one or multiple parts of your nose depending upon its shape. Results can range from a small refinement of the nasal shape to a dramatic change in facial appearance depending upon your specific needs and desires. In some cases, it can be combined with other facial procedures such as a chin implant and/or micro-liposuction of the submental region (underneath the chin) to provide more balance to the face. Dr. Vinyard will employ the use of the Vectra X3 3-D camera as a communication tool during your consult while he is analyzing your nasal structure, as well as, create a 3D image of your projected surgical outcome. This will help you understand and visualize the end result after surgery.Photo Gallery

What type of anesthesia is required for a rhinoplasty?

Dr. Vinyard prefers general anesthesia during a rhinoplasty.

How long does will my rhinoplasty take?

There are many approaches to nose reshaping surgery (rhinoplasty). Just as the appearance of everyone's nose is different, there are just as many ways to correct the area(s) of concern. Depending upon the type of procedure that Dr. Vinyard recommends for you, your rhinoplasty procedure can last from 1 ½ to 3 ½ hours. He will be able to advise you on the length of surgery at the end of your consultation once he has decided what will be necessary to achieve the look that you desire.

Can my rhinoplasty be combined with other procedures?

Generally, rhinoplasty can be combined with other procedures. It is commonly combined with other surgeries of the face such as a chin implant or micro-liposuction of the chin or jowls to help create better facial balance.

Is a Rhinoplasty considered an outpatient procedure?

Yes. You will return to the comfort of your home the same day after your rhinoplasty.

RECOVERY

Where will I stay the night of my rhinoplasty?

You will stay in the comfort of your own home with a responsible adult.

How long will it take to recover from my rhinoplasty?

Recovery from a rhinoplasty varies from person to person. You will experience some discomfort, swelling and bruising during the first couple weeks after surgery. You will be required to avoid strenuous activity and heavy lifting for about 2-3 weeks. You may return to normal activities within 4-6 weeks.

How long can I expect the bruising last after my rhinoplasty?

Bruising after a rhinoplasty usually lasts 10-14 days but can persist for up to 3 weeks. You may experience some bruising underneath the eyes as well. One week after your rhinoplasty, most of the bruising can be covered with a camouflaging concealer. We can recommend some brands of concealer during your post- operative visits that are effective with the type of coverage needed.

How long can I expect the swelling to last after my rhinoplasty?

Swelling or edema after a rhinoplasty tends to persist in the nose for quite some time, and resolution of swelling in the tip occurs last. The majority of the swelling with diminish by 1 month after your procedure. This swelling is noticed much more by the patient than others (such as friends or family) because you are closely observing your nose on a daily basis in the mirror. You may notice subtle changes in the appearance of the nose during the first year after your rhinoplasty.

When can I expect to see the final result after my rhinoplasty?

The final result can be seen at 1 year after rhinoplasty surgery with it being very close to the final result at 3 months. The nose continues to change throughout your lifespan regardless of whether it has been surgically altered or not.

When do I follow up with Dr. Vinyard after my rhinoplasty?

Dr. Vinyard likes to keep a close watch over his patients. You will see Dr. Vinyard in the clinic for the first time one day after your rhinoplasty, then at 1 week, 2 weeks, 3 weeks, 6 weeks, 3 months, 6 months, and 1 year.

FINANCING

How much will my rhinoplasty cost?

Just as every nose is different, so are the different types of surgeries that can be employed to help correct patient concerns. It will depend upon the extent of correction that you require and the time associated with that. You will be given a written quote at the end of your consultation that will detail the associated costs.

Will my insurance cover my rhinoplasty?

A rhinoplasty is considered a cosmetic procedure. Occasionally, you may have a functional problem involving your nose in which you have an irregularly shaped septum or an enlarged turbinate which causes difficulty breathing. In some cases an insurance company will provide coverage for this portion of the procedure called a septoplasty, but it would require a pre-authorization from your insurance company.

Are there financing options available for my rhinoplasty?

Yes. Our practice participates with CareCredit. However, we do not directly finance any procedures. You may also want to research options through your bank of choice. We also accept all major credit cards including VISA, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express.
