Rhinoplasty in Louisiana
While lips can be covered with lipstick, and eyes with sunglasses, the nose is a feature for which there is no mask. Providing balance, character and proportion to the face, each nose is different and offers a unique look. Those who feel their nose is too crooked, large or disproportionate often feel that a rhinoplasty in Louisiana from the board-certified plastic surgeons at The Wall Center will enhance their appearance and self-confidence. Nose surgery also can help to improve breathing and reduce snoring.

Who Needs It
Unlike many cosmetic procedures, a rhinoplasty transcends gender and age. Often the procedure can correct a nose that is crooked, has a wide or narrow bridge, or a prominent tip at the end. Most doctors prefer to operate on patients ages 15 and older, as the nose is fully developed by then.
Preparing for Rhinoplasty in Louisiana
Prior to surgery, you and your surgeon will discuss in-depth the results you want to achieve through a nose surgery procedure. By understanding your goals, your plastic surgeon will be able to give you a better indication of what results you can expect.
During rhinoplasty, the skin is separated from the bone and cartilage, and the nose is reshaped to achieve the desired look. The skin is then stitched back together. Depending on the intensity of the procedure, a rhinoplasty is done under general or local anesthesia. After surgery, a brace is placed over the nose to let it heal into its new shape.
It will take about a week after surgery before you will feel comfortable enough to go out in public. Initially, swelling can be substantial, but our surgeons can prescribe medication to help ease any pain you may experience. Usually after two months, most of the swelling will be gone, and the long term results will be more apparent.
