Rhinoplasty Details Multnomah County Oregon

Surgery of the nose or rhinoplasty is performed to increase or decrease the size of the nose, sculpt and change the shape of the tip, bridge, bones, cartilage or nostril size. Nothing has a greater impact on how a person looks than the size and shape of the nose. Because the nose is the most defining characteristic of the face, a slight alteration can greatly improve one’s appearance.

The examination

A thorough internal and external examination of the nose is performed at The Portland Rhinoplasty Center. It’s important to rule out any issues with breathing difficulties such as a deviated nasal septum on the inside of the nose, valve collapse, turbinate hypertrophy or broken nose. Examination of the external portion the nose is also performed to develop a customized surgical plan in order to accomplish refinement of the nose.

Digital computer imaging

Digital computer imaging is performed in our practice after they normal five photos are taken from all angles with a high-resolution camera. This includes the frontal, three-quarter view, and site profile with excellent lighting and in a chin neutral position. Digital imaging is then performed upon these images to show patients approximately what their prospective new nose would look like upon their facial features. This is not a guarantee results, and is only a guideline as to the potential outcome. It’s also very important communication tool to understand what both the surgeon and the patient are trying to accomplish together.

Preoperative preparations

It’s important that patients do not take any blood thinners, aspirin and ibuprofen and vitamin E supplements to prevent a nosebleed for the upcoming cosmetic nasal surgery. We ask that patients refrain from taking all these type of products for two weeks before and two weeks after the surgery. At The Portland Rhinoplasty Center, we have a list of preoperative instructions for the patients, so that there are no surprises and patients understand what’s going to happen during the surgical process
