Rhinoplasty in Sacramento is an operation to improve the shape and size of the nose so that it is in harmony with the rest of the face. Rhinoplasty is essentially a surgical sculpting of the nose and is accomplished by careful contouring of the bone and cartilage giving the nose its shape. At the same time deformities that cause breathing problems and some sinus disorders can be corrected. Most incisions (seamless rhinoplasty) are placed inside the nose where they are least visible.

Indications for Rhinoplasty in Sacramento
Each rhinoplasty operation is different because each patient presents a unique facial and nasal structure. Fortunately, there are many aesthetic goals that can be met with rhinoplasty. If your nose is large, small, crooked, humped, wide or droopy, there are techniques to bring it into balance with your facial features.
Cosmetic surgeons do not attempt to alter a patient’s nose to match a singular aesthetic ideal, but there are general goals that most people find appealing. A balanced width and balanced projection are general goals of rhinoplasty. Dr. Heir may also shape your nose to exhibit a straight nasal dorsum, narrow nasal tip with a small dip between the dorsum and tip, and an appealing angle between the nostrils and lips. As stated, each patient requires an individual examination to determine the aesthetic goals with rhinoplasty, and your consultation provides this opportunity.
How Rhinoplasty Works
In Sacramento, rhinoplasty is performed under sedation with local anesthesia. The surgery takes approximately one and one-half to two hours. The use of seamless nose surgery allows for no visible external scars and with this type of seamless nose surgery discomfort is minimized because no plates, tubes or painful packaging are used.
Rhinoplasty is often an enhancement to facial rejuvenation, particularly in the correction of the aging nose (drooping of the tip). A significant combo effect is seen with facial augmentation in conjunction with cosmetic nasal surgery. In most instances, change in appearance can be seen immediately.
