RHINOPLASTY (NOSE JOB)

Every year over half a million people will consult a facial plastic surgeon to improve the appearance of their nose, an operation called a Rhinoplasty, or nose plastic surgery. Since the nose is the most defining characteristic of the face, even a slight alteration can greatly improve one’s appearance. There are a number of reasons to consider rhinoplasty surgery, not all of which have to do with enhancing your appearance, but certainly, building self-confidence can be life-changing. Rhinoplasty, more commonly known as a “nose job,” can be performed to help modify the shape, size, or even function of your nose.

BEST RHINOPLASTY IN DUBUQUE

As one of the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedures available, a “nose job” can address either cosmetic or functional nasal concerns, and it can be helpful for people of various ages and ethnicities. While some people seek rhinoplasty surgery to reverse damage done by disease or injury, others may simply wish to enhance their facial aesthetics from years of discontent.

The definition of rhinoplasty is shaping the nose. First incisions are made and the skin of the nose is lifted off of the underlying bone and cartilage framework. The majority of incisions are made inside the nose and thus are invisible. Next, precise amounts of underlying bone and cartilage are removed or rearranged to provide a newly shaped structure. For example, when there is a large hump on the nose in profile, the excess bone, and cartilage is removed resulting in a straighter and flatter appearance. The skin is then redraped over the new framework, and the incisions are closed.

  • What do neuromodulators do?
    Neuromodulators (including Botox and Dysport) relax the muscles and reduce fine lines and wrinkles in the face and neck. These treatments combat forehead lines, glabella lines ("11's" between the brows), crows feet (around the eyes), smile lines, neck lines, and other wrinkles associated with aging. They can also be used to help sculpt and lift facial features including for a nonsurgical brow lift and a nonsurgical neck lift.
  • What is the difference between BOTOX and Dysport?
    While BOTOX and Dysport both use the same substance (botulinum toxin A) and are based on the same mechanism of action, the size of the molecules in the injections are significantly different. Dysport contains smaller molecules of botulinum toxin type A than BOTOX. - Dysport can spread through your cells more easily - Dysport may begin working slightly faster than BOTOX - Results from Dysport and Botox last for a similar amount of time
  • How many units of Botox will I need? How many units of Dysport will I need?
    The amount of units needed can differ from person to person depending upon your desired outcome, the area of concern to be treated, the strength of the muscles in the area, and whether the treatment is for prevention or to treat existing fine lines and wrinkles and their severity.
  • When will I see results from Botox and Dysport?
    Most patients can expect to notice early results of Dysport between two to five days following treatment, while results from Botox may take seven to fourteen days. The degree of muscle relation can continue to evolve for about two weeks and the results last for three to four months. The longer the BOTOX treatments have been routinely performed, the more relaxed the facial wrinkles will appear over time. Results of Dysport are similar, but often with a slightly quicker onset of action.
  • How long does Botox last? How long does Dysport last?
    Results may vary based upon the dose given, as well as on muscle strength of the area and metabolism, as our bodies metabolize (or break down) the Neuromodulators over time. Treatment to maintain your results are recommend every three to four months. Using medical grade skin care products at home as part of a daily skin care regime can help to maintain your results and improve the appearance and quality of your skin.
  • Does Botox and Dysport hurt?
    Many of us are not big fans of shots, especially needles in general. However, Neuromodulators are generally quickly injected with a minimal amount of discomfort, using the smallest needle available. Many of our patients barely notice the injections.
  • Who are good candidates for BOTOX and Dysport?
    BOTOX and Dysport have been proven safe and effective for treatment of a wide variety of patient and wrinkle types, however, the earlier the treatment is started, the more favorable the results can be. Some patients are not candidates for this type of treatment and include those diagnosed with neurological conditions or disorders affecting muscle movement, history of allergy to the botulinum toxin product, or those with unrealistic expectations from the treatment. Patients who are pregnant or nursing are discouraged from undergoing treatment.
