Georgia Doctor List

Nose surgery (“rhinoplasty”) is not just a cosmetic procedure, but it is a reconstructive procedure as well. For cosmetics, the procedure can remove the bump on the bridge of the nose, refine a bulbous tip, or enlarge or reduce the size of the nose, all done to enhance the appearance of the nose. For reconstructive purposes, it can correct birth defects or help enhance one's breathing. There are various ways a nose can be altered to enhance its appearance and function.

Even the slightest change to the nose can have a significant impact on a person's overall facial appearance. Advancements to the rhinoplasty procedure have also allowed doctors to enhance one's nasal appearance while maintaining the patient's ethnic qualities.

Nose Surgery

Based on the feature(s) of the nose that you would like to alter and its complexity, your plastic surgeon can perform either open or closed rhinoplasty. The closed technique involves incisions made inside the nose in order to conceal scarring. However, in order to gain better visibility throughout the procedure, your surgeon may prefer the open rhinoplasty procedure. Incisions for this technique are made inside the nose, as well as at the bottom of the columella. Scarring for this procedure is minimal and easily concealed in the natural skin fold. If you are having difficulty breathing, your surgeon may correct a deviated septum along with your cosmetic procedure.

In addition to nose surgery, your plastic surgeon may perform other facial procedure to provide an overall enhancement. Some commonly combined procedures include face lift surgery, facial injectables, and skin resurfacing treatments. Be sure to view before and after rhinoplasty photos to see examples of patient results.

How much does rhinoplasty cost?

The average cost of nose surgery in Atlanta is $6,090. This does not include surgery center or anesthesia fee; additional expenses can be discussed during your consultation. Your final cost will also be influenced if other procedures are performed at the same time.
