It’s Time to Unveil Your True Beauty

Unlock the potential of a more harmonious face and confident self with Primary Rhinoplasty in Danville and the East Bay at Bay Hills Plastic Surgery. Dr. Prem Tripathi, a distinguished facial plastic surgeon, specializes in delivering exceptional results.

A New Nose For a New You

Primary rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as a "nose job," is a surgical procedure that focuses on altering the shape, size, and overall appearance of your nose. While many individuals choose rhinoplasty for aesthetic reasons, it's important to note that it can also be performed for functional reasons. 

Rhinoplasty may offer several benefits:

Aesthetic Enhancement

Primary rhinoplasty is often chosen by individuals who are dissatisfied with the appearance of their nose. Whether it's a matter of refining the shape, correcting asymmetry, or enhancing proportions, Dr. Tripathi can help you achieve your goals.

Improved Confidence

A well-executed rhinoplasty can significantly boost your self-esteem. Feeling more confident about your appearance can have a profound impact on your quality of life and social interactions.

Functional Improvement

In some cases, primary rhinoplasty is not only about aesthetics. It can also address functional issues, such as a deviated septum, which can cause breathing difficulties. Septoplasty, a procedure that corrects a deviated septum, is often performed in conjunction with our nose surgery in Danville and the East Bay.

How Rhinoplasty Works

The primary rhinoplasty procedure involves several key steps:

  1. Consultation: Your journey begins with a comprehensive consultation with Dr. Tripathi. During this initial meeting, you will discuss your goals, concerns, and expectations. Dr. Tripathi will conduct a thorough evaluation to determine the best approach for your specific needs.
  2. Anesthesia: Primary rhinoplasty is typically performed under general anesthesia to ensure your comfort and safety during the procedure.
  3. Incisions: Dr. Tripathi will create incisions, typically inside the nostrils, to access the underlying structures of the nose. This approach avoids visible external scarring.
  4. Reshaping: Depending on your goals, Dr. Tripathi may reshape the bone, cartilage, and/or soft tissue of your nose. This may involve reducing, augmenting, or repositioning these structures.
  5. Septoplasty: If necessary, septoplasty can be performed in conjunction with rhinoplasty to correct a deviated septum. This enhances both the appearance and function of your nose.
  6. Closing Incisions: Dr. Tripathi will meticulously close the incisions, ensuring minimal scarring.
  7. Recovery: After surgery, you'll be monitored in a recovery area, and you may return home the same day.

What to Expect After Primary Rhinoplasty

Recovery from primary rhinoplasty is a crucial part of the process. Here's what you can expect:

Swelling and Bruising

Swelling and bruising around the nose and eyes are common after rhinoplasty. These effects typically peak in the first few days and gradually subside. Dr. Tripathi may recommend cold compresses to alleviate swelling.

Nasal Packing

In some cases, internal splints or nasal packing may be used to support the nasal structures during healing. These are typically removed within a week.

Dressings and Splints

External dressings and splints may be placed on your nose to maintain its new shape. These are generally removed within a week.

Careful Follow-up

Dr. Tripathi and his team will closely monitor your recovery, ensuring that you are healing well and answering any questions you may have.

Recovery Timeline

While the initial recovery period lasts about one to two weeks, the complete resolution of swelling and bruising may take several weeks to several months. The final results of your rhinoplasty may become fully apparent after several months.

Satisfying Your Concerns: Your Rhinoplasty Options 

As an experienced facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Tripathi offers a range of options to address various concerns in primary rhinoplasty:

  • Open Rhinoplasty
    Open rhinoplasty involves creating an external incision, allowing for more extensive reshaping and correction of structural issues.
  • Closed Rhinoplasty
    Closed rhinoplasty, performed through incisions inside the nostrils, is ideal for cases that require minimal alteration.
  • Revision Rhinoplasty
    If you've had a previous rhinoplasty and are not satisfied with the results, revision rhinoplasty can address any remaining issues or further enhance your nose.
  • Ethnic Rhinoplasty
    Dr. Tripathi recognizes the importance of preserving your cultural and ethnic identity. Ethnic rhinoplasty is tailored to enhance your appearance while respecting your unique features.
  • Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty
    For individuals seeking temporary enhancements or small corrections, non-surgical rhinoplasty using dermal fillers may be a suitable option.
