For years I had wanted rhinoplasty and I’m so happy I decided to go with Dr. Rodman. She made me feel comfortable from beginning to end and I could not be happier with the overall result of my nose. Thank you Dr. Rodman!
What is a Rhinoplasty?
A rhinoplasty is done to change the shape and appearance of the nose.
People chose to have a rhinoplasty as a result of a previous trauma, difficulty breathing, or simply a desire for a more refined and improved appearance. Dr. Rodman is double board certified in both facial plastic surgery and ENT (ear, nose and throat) surgery. This double training makes her an expert in noses. Dr. Rodman is always keeping both form and function in mind when performing rhinoplasty. This ensures that the result is a nose that breathes well and looks beautiful.
Rhinoplasty Consult. The Face Forward Process.
Consultation. Analysis. Informed Decision Making.
Dr. Rodman’s goal when performing rhinoplasty is to create a nose that is in balance with the rest of the face.
This means different techniques for different ethnicities and features. During your consult, Dr. Rodman will analyze your face and comment on how your nose might be improved to bring your features into better balance. Dr. Rodman’s philosophy is that the perfect nose is one that no one notices. A natural appearing nose does not draw attention, and allows your eyes and lips to be the features that stand out and shine. Dr. Rodman will listen to your concerns, cosmetic and functional, and develop a plan with you. Patient input and clear communication is one of the keys to success! You will be able to see computer imaging to get an idea of what you will look like after surgery.
A rhinoplasty is usually done as an outpatient procedure and patients go home the same day. You will likely be bruised and swollen for the first week after surgery. Expect to limit activity to light tasks for the first week.
