Rhinoplasty with Dr. Rana
This rhinoplasty procedure is an outpatient procedure, meaning that patients can go home shortly after the procedure is complete. Typically, the procedure is completed under general anesthesia, as the procedure is fairly in-depth.
During the surgery, Dr. Rana will make small incisions either inside the nostrils or on the columella (the strip of skin separating the nostrils). The approach used will depend on the goals of the procedure.
Once the incisions have been made, Dr. Rana can then fine tune and sculpt the underlying bone and cartilage that provide shape and structure to the nose. It is not uncommon to use cartilage grafts to re-shape the nose. This is typically taken from the extra cartilage (nasal septum) that already exists. The bones of the nose may be filed or reset to give adequate balance from the base of the nose to the tip. During this process, Dr. Rana will ensure that the functional structure of the nose remains solid. Once these changes have been made, the incisions are closed and the procedure is complete.
