Nose Job (Rhinoplasty, or Nasal Surgery) in Knoxville TN
Your nose is front-and-center on your face, making it a major factor in how you look. Your nose also plays the important role of allowing you to breathe.
Some people want a “nose job” (rhinoplasty) to improve their appearance, while others require surgery to allow them to breathe better.
A nose job ( rhinoplasty ) is a sculpting procedure that can correct:
- A nose that is too big in relation to your face
- A nose that is too wide at the bridge or base
- A nose that has bumps, humps, or depressions
- A nose tip that is bulbous, droopy, or too upturned
- Nostrils that are too large or too wide
- A nose that is crooked or asymmetrical, either congenitally or due to injury
- A nose that has been operated on before, but needs a revision
- A deviated nose that restricts your breathing
Whatever the reason for your nose job – rhinoplasty, it is important you visit a Knoxville board-certified plastic surgeon who has the education and training to deliver both the aesthetic and functional results you desire.
Knoxville Board certified plastic surgeon Jay H. Lucas, M.D. will begin your consultation with a full facial analysis. Photos taken with the advanced VECTRA three-dimensional imaging system will reveal the structure of your nose and face. This is particularly useful for viewing your profile, and helps provide a guide for how you want your new nose to look. Based on your facial analysis, Dr. Lucas may recommend a chin implant in addition to nasal surgery for the best overall outcome.
Nasal surgery – rhinoplasty can be performed either open or closed. Dr. Lucas feels optimal results are most often achieved through an open procedure. This is the latest technology in nasal surgery and involves making small incisions on the bottom part of the nose to provide a full view of the area during surgery. An open procedure also allows Dr. Lucas to enhance the stability of the nose, providing extra support so it will not weaken over time. Scarring is minimal.
