Rhinoplasty is a nuanced surgery that can address the specific issues you may have with the size and shape of your nose so that its appearance better fits your ideal image. Board-certified surgeon Dr. Demetri specializes in facial plastic surgery and strives to deliver the best rhinoplasty in Tampa. Renowned by his patients as one of the best surgeons in Tampa Florida, Dr. Demetri can provide you with the beautiful and natural-looking results you want.
If you are unhappy with the natural appearance of your nose and comfortable with the idea of having surgery, you are a good candidate for rhinoplasty. Also known as a nose job, this procedure can also be performed to correct birth defects as well as damage to the nose caused by injury. Dr. Demetri will evaluate your overall health and review your medical history to make sure you are eligible for the procedure.
A variety of changes can be made to your nose to address both aesthetic and functional issues. Some of the common aesthetic issues that lead people to pursue rhinoplasty include:
Some people may also suffer from breathing problems due to a deviated septum or some other obstruction that is impeding the flow of air through the nasal cavity. Surgery can be performed to clear the nasal pathway and improve breathing. This is called a septoplasty and can be performed separately or in conjunction with rhinoplasty.
A rhinoplasty consultation begins with a discussion of your appearance goals and complete medical history. Dr. Demetri will listen to all of your concerns at this time.
If you are currently on any medications, inform Dr. Demetri during your consultation. You may need to temporarily stop taking blood-thinning medications and herbal supplements to prevent complications during and after a rhinoplasty.
Once your eligibility is confirmed, Dr. Demetri will discuss surgical techniques and give you an overview of the procedure and its possible results. It is highly recommended to set realistic expectations, since results are different for everyone. We also offer before-and-after morphed photos so you can have an idea of expectations.
Please follow our special instructions to help you prepare before the procedure and guide you during the recovery period.
The rhinoplasty process will be safer and more comfortable if you are properly prepared beforehand. Here are a few things that can help you get ready for rhinoplasty.
You will need time off from work to recover from the surgery, so request 5 to 7 days off to make sure you get plenty of rest.
Plan your meals at least one week ahead to avoid exhausting grocery shopping. Prepare meals that are rich in protein, vitamins, and nutrients to help your body recover quickly.
Arrange your sleeping area with enough pillows for support. A neck pillow can help you avoid adding pressure to your newly reshaped nose while sleeping.
On the day of the procedure, bathe or shower with mild products before going to the surgical center. This will ensure that your skin and hair are free of dirt that could contaminate the incisions during the procedure. Wear a button-down top to help you change clothes easily after the procedure.
Have someone else drive you on the day of your rhinoplasty. This will help you get home safely and get as much assistance as possible.
“Dr. Demetri and his office were great! The process from start to finish was great. I went in for 1st visit without knowing much and got plenty of information and answers to my questions. Everything was taken care of, in advance, schedules were flexible, and met all my expectations. The suggestion for hyperbaric chamber treatments afterward was extremely helpful. That seemed to speed up the healing process by weeks.”
Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that may involve fracturing bones, trimming cartilage, and manipulating tissue in order to create the desired results. This may result in some bruising in areas like underneath the eyes. Sutures may be used during the healing process. A cast may need to be worn to help retain the new shape of the nose, usually just for seven days after the procedure.
After a week of recovery, patients can resume light work like clerical jobs. Strenuous activities like sports and heavy exercise are to be avoided for three weeks.
Swelling and some discomfort are to be expected. Any discomfort can be managed with medications provided after the procedure. Be sure to take pain medication as directed. Anti-inflammatory drugs may be prescribed to help manage the initial swelling. A majority of the swelling will go down over the next few weeks. However, the nose continues to change over the course of a year.
The cost of a Tampa Rhinoplasty can vary from patient to patient, and largely depends on the degree of correction required to help you achieve your individual goals. During your consultation, Dr. Demetri will go over his recommendations and pricing to give you a better understanding of what to expect.
