Frequently Asked Questions
What is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty, also referred to as a nose job, is both a cosmetic and medically neccessary surgical procedure designed to correct either functional or aesthetic issues with the nose, or both. Even the subtlest changes to your nose can have a significant impact on the overall appearance of your face. When performed by Dr. Nick Slenkovich, rhinoplasty can balance facial features, improve the shape and/or size of the nose, and bring a far more appealing appearance of your entire face.
What Can I Expect During my Rhinoplasty Procedure?
Your rhinoplasty in Denver will be performed in our world-class surgical center under either local or general anesthesia. The duration of your rhinoplasty procedure will vary depending upon the extent to which Dr. Slenkovich is reshaping your nose, however, most nose jobs take between two and three hours. Dr. Slenkovich will carefully reshape your nose while you rest comfortably. When you awake from anesthesia, you will be one step closer to seeing your vision realized.
Can Nose Reshaping Correct Issues with Breathing?
Yes! The term rhinoplasty or a "nose job" commonly infers that this procedure is done for aesthetic purposes. However, the fact that is not well known about nose reshaping is that it is often done for reasons other than just aesthetic allure.
If you have breathing problems that are caused by a deviated septum or facial trauma, rhinoplasty can provide relief by correcting any structural issues within your nose. This procedure has helped many individuals suffering from the above nasal circumstances.
While Dr. Slenkovich is extremely well known for his aesthetic rhinoplasty, he is also very well known for his successful revision rhinoplasty and reconstructive nose surgery, done to alleviate nasal troubles or physical disfigurement.
What is Recovery from Rhinoplasty Like?
You should expect to have some swelling and bruising immediately following your nose job procedure, as well as mild to moderate pain and discomfort.
Dr. Slenkovich will provide you with pain medication to aid in your comfort as your body heals. Keeping your head elevated and applying ice can help to alleviate any swelling. Most of your swelling should dissipate after seven to nine days. Any splints or stitches will be removed approximately one week following your procedure. Swelling will continue to resolve itself over the course of the next twelve months.
Why is Rhinoplasty Performed?
Your nose is the focal point of your face, and the feature which is most responsible for creating harmony with the rest of your features.
If you feel that the size or shape of your nose draws unwanted attention, it can make you feel self-conscious. For others, the nose may not function the in a way that allows unencumbered breathing. Rhinoplasty can:
- Change the size or shape of your nose
- Correct breathing problems
- Straighten the bridge of the nose
- Subtly alter the tip
- Change the size of the nostrils
- Repair the nose after traumatic injury
- Create facial balance
- Improve your self-esteem
