About Rhinoplasty Surgery
Cosmetic nose surgery (rhinoplasty) is an aesthetic procedure that is used to improve the look and shape of the nose. In addition, rhinoplasty also helps correct functionality in some patients. At Elevate Medical Spa and Cosmetic Surgery in Dallas, TX, board-certified plastic surgeons Drs. Thornwell Parker and Kevin Hanz are seasoned, cosmetic face and nose surgeons who offer rhinoplasty. They take a subtle approach to produce the most beautiful and natural-looking outcomes. While rhinoplasty consists of delicate changes, results usually are quite dramatic. Rhinoplasty at Elevate Medical Spa is used to make a nose look smaller or enhance a nose that is misshapen, protrudes out, is too large or wide, or has a bump on top. The goal is to produce a more aesthetically pleasing nose that meets goals and functions as it should.
In addition to cosmetic rhinoplasty, similar plastic surgery techniques are available to correct nose deformities following Mohs skin cancer surgery, like basal cell cancer or squamous cell cancer. Traumatic injuries also lead to both cosmetic and functional nose problems. Airway obstruction is another common problem that can be easily addressed with different rhinoplasty techniques like septoplasty and turbinate resection or displacement. Even skin conditions like rosacea can lead to an unusual enlargement of the nose called rhinophyma for which different treatment options are available.
Women and men both are candidates for rhinoplasty. If you're displeased with the overall look of your nose and have specific concerns you wish to enhance or repair, this surgery may be the recommended answer. It is important that realistic expectations are noted as your appearance will be changed. In addition, facial maturity should also be complete. This factor will be discussed during your consultation, especially for individuals under 21.
"All the staff was very professional."- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Oct 12, 2017
"UPDATE!!!! I got a chemical peel last week to treat the pigmentation. My first ever! Not going to lie, it was painful (worth it) and I wanted to stop. But Felicia was so patient with me! She was a cheerleader throughout and kept my mind off of the burning sensation.I was in and out of the office in about 30 minutes, by the next day, peeling had started around my mouth. In 5 days flat, my face was completely cleared and so, so fresh!They're calling me baby face at the office and I don't mind it one bit!"- R.B. / Yelp / May 03, 2018

"Love all the staff, very friendly and informative. Beautiful, clean office. Reasonable prices and so many procedures that they offer. Parking was easy. Highly recommend this place, got Botox and dermaplane facial and I'm loving the results!"- K.P. / Yelp / May 01, 2018
"Had my dermaplaning treatment and custom facial with Suzanne and it was amazing from start to finish. Check in was a breeze (I recommend printing the paperwork and filling it all out before your appointment because there are quite a few pages). The rooms are nice and relaxing with THE most comfortable bed sheets-almost fell asleep a few times. Definitely recommend this place and I will most certainly be back! Thank you again, Elevate!"- J.R. / Yelp / Apr 12, 2018
Cosmetic nose surgery is performed with the patient under IV sedation or general anesthesia and is considered an outpatient surgical procedure. Rhinoplasty has varying surgical techniques depending on the unique cosmetic goals of the patient. It is possible to perform nose surgery with either a closed approach or an open method. The goal of surgery is to remove or reposition excess tissue and cartilage if there is too much present, or to straighten and add cartilage if this is needed for reshaping. The nose is repositioned while the skin is reformed and draped over the newly enhanced framework. Sutures are placed either inside the nose or in the natural external crease. For more complicated nose deformities additional plastic surgery techniques are implemented to achieve our best results.
What to Expect
After nose surgery, patients will be monitored closely in the recovery section and then be released to heal at home. The area around the nose will be very swollen and bruised for a week or so. In most cases, there is bruising under the eyes as well. Cold compression and prescription medication can help with these effects. Your post-operative appointment will take place within 48 – 72 hours following surgery in order for us to assess the healing process. On average, it takes about 2 – 4 weeks to heal from rhinoplasty. During the process, strenuous activity or exercise should be avoided. Rhinoplasty surgery produces amazing outcomes; however, it also needs a very skilled degree of surgical experience and visual artistry to create the appropriate shape. We recommend that you do your diligence and provide a detailed account of concerns and goals during the initial meeting.
