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 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. Also during the consultation, you can plan your surgery and preview your results with the help of our VECTRA® 3-D imaging system. The VECTRA software creates a 3-D rendering of your face, allowing you to choose different surgical options and ensuring you and your surgeon have the same goals and expectations for your surgery.

Case 554: Rhinoplasty
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 from the plastic surgeons at The Wall Center will enhance their appearance and self-confidence. Nose surgery also can help to improve breathing and reduce snoring. This patient is very happy with her rhinoplasty results from Dr. Simeon Wall Jr.
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.
The Wall Center is one of the only practices in Louisiana to offer rhinoplasty patients the opportunity to plan and preview their results with the VECTRA® 3-D imaging system. VECTRA's lifelike renderings allow us to fine-tune your procedure and shape your nose in the way that best complements your face.
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.
