La Jolla / San Diego Rhinoplasty Surgeons
Umansky Medical Center for Plastic Surgery
Rhinoplasty in San Diego
Because many people feel that the size and shape of their nose doesn’t quite fit the rest of their face, nasal refinement, also known as rhinoplasty, is one of the most common facial cosmetic procedures. An appealing facial profile with a well-proportioned nose as its centerpiece can greatly enhance a person’s self-image and self-confidence. Dr. William Umansky and Dr. Jeffrey Umansky specialize in reducing or increasing the size of the nose, narrowing its width, or changing the profile of the bridge or tip to achieve each patient’s desired nasal appearance.
There are a variety of techniques that may be used for rhinoplasty, depending on the specific concerns and the desired outcome of the patient. Incisions may be completely hidden inside the nose, or there might be a small incision on the columella, the narrow area of tissue between the nostrils.
Rhinoplasty may be performed in a hospital or outpatient surgical center. In our practice, the procedure is performed in our AAAASF accredited facility, usually under general anesthesia.
Recovery from rhinoplasty can take up to three weeks before you are able to resume all of your regular activities. However, most patients return to work and light activities within 7-10 days. It is important to discuss recovery time with your physician to ensure you allow ample time to heal from your surgery.
