Overview of Surgical Nose Narrowing in Washington DC

When a patient’s nose is too wide for the rest of their face, this can be corrected with the help of Dr. Rad’s surgical nose narrowing for Washington DC patients. The shape and size of the nose should be balanced and in harmony with the other facial features. Surgery to narrow and refine the nose can be very effective in balancing facial proportions.

In total nasal narrowing, Dr. Rad reduces the width of the nose from the bridge to the tip to the base, and with the added benefit of invisible post-surgical marks. This comprehensive process ensures that all issues causing the nose to look too wide are addressed effectively

 

Am I a Good Candidate for Surgical Nose Narrowing?

Many patients are ideal candidates for this form of nose reshaping surgery. If you are in good overall health and are a non-smoker, you are most likely a good candidate. Having realistic expectations is vital.

Dr. Rad does not accept patients seeking an extreme makeover or the looks of another person. His focus with surgical nose narrowing is a precise adjustment of the nasal architecture to improve the overall proportions of the nose and the face.

 

How Does Dr. Rad Approach Surgical Nose Narrowing?

If the nose is too wide for the rest of the face then surgery to narrow and refine the nose can be very effective. In Dr. Rad’s hands, surgical nose narrowing is very safe and offers high-quality results.

In Total Nasal Narrowing, Dr. Rad reduces the width of the nose from the bridge to the tip to the base, and with the benefit of invisible scars.

Dr. Rad uses a closed rhinoplasty approach, which involves small incisions hidden inside of the nostrils. This ensures that post-surgical marks are not visible. Because it is less invasive than open rhinoplasty, it also results in a more comfortable healing process with minimized bruising and swelling.

Once incisions have been made, the nasal bones are cut (a process known as osteotomy) and inset in a narrower position. The nasal tip cartilage is reshaped and refined using permanent sutures and cartilage grafts. Finally, incisions are closed using sutures.

Q+A

WHAT CAUSES A WIDE NOSE?

A wide nasal tip, bridge, or base often comes about as a result of genetics. In some cases, injuries or previous rhinoplasties can make a nose look overly wide.

WHAT ARE MY NON-SURGICAL OPTIONS FOR NOSE NARROWING?

There is no good non-surgical procedure to reduce or narrow a wide nose. However, injectable dermal fillers are excellent temporary treatments to mask a dorsal hump.

HOW DO I PREPARE FOR SURGICAL NOSE NARROWING?

In order to prevent surgical and post-surgical complications, patients must avoid taking NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) for several weeks before their surgical nose narrowing procedure. Various supplements must also be avoided. It will also be necessary to be as well-informed as possible before the procedure. This can reduce anxiety and ensures that the patient is prepared for every aspect of the process.

IS SURGICAL NOSE NARROWING A COSMETIC OR A FUNCTIONAL PROCEDURE?

Surgical nose narrowing is usually a purely cosmetic procedure, since it is used to improve the appearance of the nose and face. Typically, nose narrowing is not a functional procedure; a too-wide nose rarely leads to breathing problems or obstructed nasal passages.

WHAT IS RECOVERY LIKE AFTER SURGICAL NOSE NARROWING?

After this type of rhinoplasty, patients often notice bruising and swelling. These issues are only temporary and will resolve in a week or two. To help this process along, it is best to keep one’s head elevated. Pillows can be used to aid in this. Typically, pain is not present following this procedure. Patients may feel congested for a time. It is important to avoid blowing one’s nose during the surgical nose narrowing recovery process if at all possible. In cases where it is unavoidable, it must be done extremely gently. Patients can go back to their daily schedule after about two weeks have passed. Avoiding strenuous activities is required for several weeks.

HOW LONG DO THE RESULTS LAST?

After nose narrowing surgery has been performed, the results will be permanent. It is important to remember that full results will not be immediately noticeable due to swelling. Final results can be seen after all swelling has disappeared.

What are Dr. Rad’s patients saying?

“We consulted with three plastic surgeons before choosing Dr. Rad for my 17-year-old son’s rhinoplasty and chin implant in March 2017. From the first meeting, we felt confident that Dr. Rad is a skilled, experienced and talented surgeon who pays attention to every detail.
