Nose Surgery and Nose Job Procedures


bigstock-Beautiful-Smiling-Black-Woman-12039041A large number of people are unhappy with the shape of their nose. The good news is that such unhappiness does not have to persist. Rhinoplasty gives you the option of altering and improving your look. Rhinoplasty is a very common cosmetic surgery procedure and can achieve:

  • Smoothing out the dorsum of the nose to remove bumps or rises and improve your profile
  • Decreasing the width of the nasal bones to make the nose look smaller
  • Decreasing or widening the nostril size
  • Altering the tip to make it less wide, look more feminine, and more refined
  • Correcting the alignment of the septum is possible with Rhinoplasty

The Rhinoplasty Recovery Procedure

Once your procedure is completed, it is time to look forward to a future with a look you have always dreamed of. However, here are some things to expect during the recovery period:

  • There is very little pain involved in a Rhinoplasty prcedure.
  • Swelling may persist especially in the nasal tip when receiving a Rhinoplasty. Dr Liszka will discuss these expectations with you.
  • To eliminate problems that could exist from bruising or swelling, no alcohol is recommended following Rhinoplasty surgery.
  • A splint is required to be worn for about a week after Rhinoplasty surgery.
  • Activity and exercise should be limited for about two weeks after the Rhinoplasty procedure.

The Facts AboutRhinoplasty Surgery

There is a lot more that goes into just ‘getting a nose job.’ Rhinoplasty accomplishes a lot more than most people tend to know. Here are a few facts about the procedure:

  • It does more than just reshape the tissue of the nose. It also changes the shape of the cartilage and bone. The skin is then able to adapt to the brand new shape of the nose.
  • There is an artistic essence to rhinoplasty as it is one of the more creative versions of any cosmetic surgery and different techniques allow doctors to choose from a variety of options.
  • Ethnicity factors into this procedure. Rhinoplasty is performed to provide each ethnic group with a natural look that follows the parameters of their own ethnicity.

To Our Patients,

The Surgeon General, the CDC, the American College of Surgeons, and the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery have all recommended delaying or postponing elective surgery and medically non essential patient visits during the Covid 19 pandemic as we anticipate an unprecedented strain on our Healthcare System. The Novant Healthcare System has cancelled/rescheduled all elective operations beginning 3/18/2020. They have not given a date when they anticipate opening their operating rooms for elective surgery and we will be monitoring that closely. Also, the CDC and Federal Government have recommended limiting social interactions to try to slow the spread of disease. For that reason Ballantyne Plastic Surgery will be operating on an extremely limited basis for the next two weeks or longer and only be seeing patients for medically necessary reasons. This is defined as patients whose health would be negatively affected if they are not seen. This will apply mainly to patients in the early post operative period. As of March 18, 2020 the following applies to Ballantyne Plastic Surgery:

  1.  All elective surgery is being cancelled and will later be rescheduled when the  operating rooms are open for elective procedures. Every effort will be made to accommodate your scheduling desires.
  2.  All medically non-essential patient visits will be rescheduled for a minimum of 2 weeks or however long the CDC and other governing agencies deem essential to limit the spread of Covid 19. This includes:
          a. All new patient consults
          b. All dermal filler and neuromodulator (botox) patients
          c. All aesthetic services (laser, skin pen, peels, etc.)
          d. All long term post surgical follow up patients unless there is a problem requiring immediate intervention
  3. Dr Liszka will determine who will be seen during this time period and you will be notified as to your appointment date. You also may call the office to discuss whether you need to be seen during this time

All of us at Ballantyne Plastic Surgery are very sorry to have to implement the above protocol for our practice and the impact it makes on our patient’s schedule and lives. This is an unprecedented medical problem and requires extreme measures. We believe this is necessary and in the best interest of our patients, staff, community, and country.
