Rhinoplasty Q & A

What is rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that changes the shape and appearance of your nose. Commonly referred to as a nose job, this procedure changes your nose by modifying the bone, skin, and/or cartilage.

As a result of his specialized training in rhinoplasty, Dr. Tamburrino helps many people in the south Jersey and Philadelphia areas create the perfect nose to balance their facial features.

Why would I consider rhinoplasty?

There are various reasons you may want to consider rhinoplasty. This procedure can enhance your facial harmony by altering the proportions of your nose.

Rhinoplasty also corrects impaired breathing caused by structural deformities in the nose. These issues can be the result of an injury or they may have been present at birth.

One of the most common causes of breathing impairment is a deviated septum. Dr. Tamburrino corrects this problem by adjusting and re-aligning your nasal structure in a procedure called septoplasty.

Who is a good candidate for rhinoplasty?

Dr. Tamburrino performs rhinoplasty on patients age 16 and above. To be a candidate for rhinoplasty, your facial growth must be complete. Other factors that make you a good candidate for rhinoplasty include:

  • You are physically healthy
  • You don’t smoke
  • You have a positive outlook

Though rhinoplasty helps to improve the symmetry of your face, it’s important to remember that everyone’s facial features are slightly asymmetrical. The best candidates for this procedure have realistic expectations of how a nose job can improve their appearance.

What should I expect from a rhinoplasty procedure?

The first step involves a detailed consultation with Dr. Tamburrino. During this time, he listens attentively as you discuss your specific concerns and aesthetic goals.

Rhinoplasty is a highly individualized procedure. Dr. Tamburrino carefully develops a rhinoplasty plan tailored to your particular needs. He evaluates your facial features in order to best enhance your unique good looks.

Dr. Tamburrino performs rhinoplasty surgery in his office or at a local hospital. After surgery, he provides you with detailed instructions on how to care for your nose at home. You should plan to take a week off from work or school to recover.
