Rhinoplasty

Every year thousands of people inquire about surgery of the nose to improve its form and function. Nasal surgery may help alleviate or cure breathing problems, improve appearance from birth or deformities, or support the way aging has affected the nose. Patients who are considering nasal surgery should seek consultation with a facial plastic surgeon who is a specialist in nasal airway function as well as plastic surgery. Dr. Jeffrey Gallups and Dr. Mark Beaty are board certified in both otolaryngology and facial plastic surgery, offering you the highest level of training and expertise.

Aesthetic nasal surgery, also known as rhinoplasty, refines the shape of the nose, making it harmonize better with other facial features. Before deciding on rhinoplasty, it is critical to consult with a facial plastic surgeon to optimize your results. Some patients will decide on other procedures as well, such as chin augmentation, to better balance their features. Successful plastic surgery is often the result of good communication between patient and surgeon so that realistic expectations are set. In the consulting stages before surgery, our Atlanta rhinoplasty surgeons can answer specific questions about your specific goals.

Skin type, ethnic background, and age are important factors that influence nasal surgery. Young patients must reach full growth, usually age fifteen or sixteen, before they can have their nose cosmetically altered. In cases where breathing is severely impaired, exceptions are sometimes made.

During your consultation, you can expect a thorough explanation regarding the procedure and its risks. Following a joint decision by you and our Atlanta rhinoplasty surgeons to proceed with rhinoplasty, photographs will be taken and your options will be discussed. You will learn how the nasal bones and cartilage can be sculpted to reshape the nose, and how reshaping the chin, for example, could potentially improve your results.

To resculpt the nose, the skin is lifted which allows the surgeon to work on the underlying tissues. The skin is then redraped and sutured over the new structure. A nasal splint on the outside of the nose helps it retain its new shape while healing. If soft material is needed inside the nose to help support the septum, it is usually removed the morning after surgery. The external splint is usually removed a week after surgery.

It is critical that you follow your surgeon's postoperative instructions to achieve your optimal result. Some activities will be prohibited in the weeks after the procedure. Follow-up care is also vital to promote the best outcome.

To schedule a consultation, please call our Atlanta rhinoplasty surgeons at 770.740.1860.

Insurance does not generally cover surgery for purely cosmetic reasons. Surgery for nasal function, injury related, or for major deformities may be reimbursable for part or whole.

"Dr. Joseph, thank you for being so attentive to our little girl. She told all her friends that a Princess took out her tonsils, (she says you look like Princess Jasmine). From day one- We felt safe with you as her surgeon. As a parent, it was such a relief to know she was being cared for and felt a sense of security in your care."
