Rhinoplasty DallasSometimes, Dallas men and women who consult with Dr. Bassichis about getting rhinoplasty surgery ask if the procedure will negatively affect their smile. After all, these residents still want to be able to show off their pearly whites every time someone makes them laugh or makes them happy! The reason for this concern, however, is valid. Since rhinoplasty surgery takes place so close to your upper lip, some who desire a nose job are concerned that they will have a stiff upper lip following their surgery, and be unable to smile the natural, normal way they used to before they had their procedure.

Thankfully, when you choose to work with double-board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bassichis of Dallas’ Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery, you don’t have to worry about this complication.* That’s because Dr. Bassichis has years of experience performing nose jobs, and he has the skill and technique to make sure he doesn’t interfere with your lip muscles.*

A Note About Your Recovery Time

While rhinoplasty patients don’t have to worry about long-term effects on their smile prior to surgery, it’s important to remember that nose jobs do have a recovery time period. Immediately after your surgery, you may notice that you have a less profound smile than usual. This is normal and to be expected, because your body is healing. Within a week or two of your surgery, however, any numbness that you feel on your nasal tip and upper lip should go away, and you can smile like normal!

A Special Note to Those Choosing Rhinoplasty for Nostril Reduction

Some Dallas residents specifically want a nose job because they feel their nostrils are too large for and unproportionate to the rest of their face. While Dr. Bassichis works diligently with these patients to help them achieve their desired results, he also takes a conservative approach. That’s because flaring nostrils are a natural side effect of many facial expressions, including smiling, and he wants your future smiles to look natural.

Sharing Your Questions with Dr. Bassichis

Whether you’re worried that rhinoplasty will affect your smile, or result in some other undesirable side effect, Dr. Bassichis encourages you to ask all your questions – even if you think they are silly – during your consultation with him. He’s there to help explain the nose job procedure to you and make sure you are completely certain you want to proceed before you are booked for a surgery day. So don’t be afraid – fire those questions away!

Young Woman with Dark Curly Hair Resting Her Chin on Her Crossed Arms

Nose jobs are among the most popular plastic surgery procedures performed in the United States. And when it all comes down to it, there really are only 3 reasons why people consider plastic surgery to alter their noses: they had facial trauma that injured their nose and they want to correct it, they don’t like their natural nose and want to change it, or they have breathing difficulties and hope a nose job will improve them.

Continue reading as Dallas facial plastic surgeon Dr. Bassichis discusses 3 three reasons for getting rhinoplasty in more detail.

Getting a Nose Job Because You’ve Experienced Facial Trauma

Whether you’ve experienced facial trauma in the past that affected your nose from a sports injury, a car accident, or something else, it can be difficult to accept the new look of your nose as it naturally healed. Dallas residents who have had a facial trauma break their noses will tell you that their accidentally broken noses typically don’t naturally heal in an aesthetically pleasing way.

Often times, the best course of treatment to return your nose back to its former look is to undergo reconstructive rhinoplasty. While your individualized surgical plan may include rebreaking the nasal bone, this break will be surgically controlled and totally different from the spontaneous break you experienced before. You can rest assured that Dallas facial plastic surgeon Dr. Bassichis has your end results in mind when he’s preparing your reconstructive nose job surgical plan.

Getting a Nose Job Because You Don’t Like the Look of Your Natural Nose

A common reason that patients visit Dr. Bassichis at Dallas’ Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery is that they don’t like the look of their natural nose, and they want to change it surgically. There are a variety of reasons a patient may be displeased with their natural nasal appearance, including feeling like their nose:

  • Doesn’t have an aesthetically pleasing profile
  • Is too big or too small for their face
  • Is too wide or too narrow for their face
  • Is crooked or otherwise misshapen
  • Has an unwanted nasal hump
  • Has nostrils that are either too big or too little

A cosmetic nose job can address all of these aesthetic issues (and more!).

Getting a Nose Job Because You Want to Breathe Easier

Finally, some Dallas rhinoplasty patients don’t choose the surgery for aesthetics at all. On the contrary, these patients have breathing issues but haven’t found relief with other medical solutions like allergy or congestion medications.

If the internal structure of your nose is impeding you from breathing easily, then functional rhinoplasty might be able to help you achieve this goal. Typically focusing on altering your internal nasal shelves, this procedure usually doesn’t involve any cosmetic changes at all.

Whatever Your Reason for Rhinoplasty, Dr. Bassichis Can Help

Whether you desire a nose job for reconstructive, cosmetic, or functional reasons, Dr. Bassichis has tremendous experience with performing the procedures for all of these patient needs.

Rhinoplasty DallasIf you haven’t already learned through your online research, you should know that rhinoplasty is one of the most common elective plastic surgery procedures not only performed in Dallas, but throughout the United States. And in fact, it’s performed for so many different reasons – from elongated noses to reducing the size of nostrils to functional rhinoplasty – that no two patients have the same treatment plan for their surgery.

Still, the idea of having one’s nose worked on can be a little anxiety producing to some patients- especially since the nose is not only such a prominent facial feature but so important for breathing. During his consultations with potential patients, Dr. Bassichis is often asked how a patient’s nose will be molded during rhinoplasty surgery. The answer – it all depends on what you are trying to achieve.

Nose Modeling for Removing a Nasal Hump

Some Dallas residents seek out Dr. Bassichis’ skill and experience because they have an unwanted nasal hump. Whether they don’t like the way it makes them look head-on, or they dislike their facial profile, these patients simply want their nasal hump gone.

Molding the nose for removing a nasal hump is a very unique process. First, Dr. Bassichis gently shaves the hump down, making it unrecognizable. Then he performs a procedure called lateral osteoplasty – also known as breaking the nasal bone – so that the exposed open roof from shaving the nasal hump down can heal.

Molding Your Nose to Improve the Look of Your Nasal Tip

The nasal tip is an important feature of your nose, and some patients are unhappy with the way their nasal tips naturally looks. Rhinoplasty can surgically change this. Depending on the look you are trying to achieve, Dr. Bassichis may lift your nasal tip, round it out, or narrow it.

Slimming Down a Wide Nose

Sometimes, Dallas residents feel their nose is just too wide for their other facial features, and they want it to be surgically corrected so that it’s more narrow and proportionate with the rest of their face. In this case, Dr. Bassichis will perform a procedure called alar baser reduction, which means that he narrows down wide nostrils by removing tissue in between them. Next, he breaks wide nasal bones, if present, to make them appear more narrow. Finally, depending on your desired goals, Dr. Bassichis may even extend the nose to give it a narrower appearance.

The Many Ways a Nose Can be Molded During Rhinoplasty

As you can see, since there are so many different things rhinoplasty can address, there’s no one way a nose is modeled for the surgery. It all depends on the aesthetic goals you are trying to accomplish. If you have questions about the molding and surgical techniques that will be used during your nose job, just ask. Dr. Bassichis will be happy to explain them to you so that you are fully informed about your upcoming procedure.

Smiling Young Blonde Caucasian Women with Narrow Nose

If you’re a Dallas man or woman considering getting a nose job, you may have heard that there’s a difference between an “open” rhinoplasty and a “closed” one. But what do these terms mean? Continue reading as facial plastic surgeon Dr. Bassichis of Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center breaks it down for you.

“Open” Rhinoplasty

Many Dallas patients get what is commonly referred to as “open” rhinoplasty. The “open” in this term means that the incision for your procedure is placed on the outside of your nose. This incision provides Dr. Bassichis with complete access to your lower nasal skeleton.

An “open” procedure may be indicated for a variety of reasons. These include:

  • Your facial plastic surgeon desiring easy access to the nasal skeleton and cartilage structure
  • Surgical plans with more aggressive nasal contouring objectives
  • Wanting to minimize the risk for nasal cartilage distortion
  • Having a surgical plan that includes reshaping the nose tip cartilages

“Closed” Rhinoplasty

Unlike an “open” nose job, a “closed” nose job keeps all incisions from the surgery inside your nose – so they won’t be visible at all, not even minimally.

Reasons that a Dallas patient might undergo a “closed” nose job versus an “open” one include:

  • Desiring no visible scars
  • Wanting a less invasive surgery than “open” rhinoplasty
  • Providing the patient with a shorter recovery time period

Why Dallas Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Bassichis May Choose One Surgical Approach Over Another

It’s important for Dallas patients desiring a nose job to remember that every nose job is different. That’s because everyone’s nose is unique, as are their faces, so there’s no way for there to be reproducible surgeries.

While you may think the “closed” approach is more desirable because it won’t leave a visible scar and it typically provides a faster recovery period, this technique may not be an option for you given your current nasal appearance and your desired outcomes. Generally speaking, if a surgical plan is more aggressive or is aimed at providing more dramatic results, an “open” approach is needed.

It’s important for you to communicate your desires to Dr. Bassichis nonetheless. Given your specific surgical objectives, he may be able to provide your desired outcomes with the “closed” nose job approach.

Consult with Dr. Bassichis to Learn More

Whatever results you’re hoping for, it’s important that you not put the cart before the horse. Ultimately, your desired outcomes should dictate whether you have an “open” or “closed” nose job surgical plan.

To find out which one is right for you, consult with local facial plastic surgeon Dr. Bassichis at Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery.

Rhinoplasty Surgery DallasAll Dallas residents decide to see Dr. Bassichis at Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery for rhinoplasty surgery for different reasons. But among the most common is the desire to remove a nasal hump. This bulge on the nose can affect your facial look, not only straight on but your profile as well. Luckily, there are rhinoplasty surgery techniques designed to address this exact issue.

How Dr. Bassichis Removes a Nasal Hump

All rhinoplasty surgeries are different, so the techniques employed for your surgery will be different than those of other patients. If you’re coming to Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery to have a nasal hump removed, Dr. Bassichis’ first step will be to gently shave the nasal hump down. Not only does this remove the hump, but it also gives you a more aesthetically pleasing look and profile.

After the nasal hump is shaved down during rhinoplasty surgery, Dr. Bassichis will perform a procedure called lateral osteotomy – also known as breaking the nose. While some patients are surprised to learn their nose must be broken to remove a nasal hump, it is actually necessary. Breaking the nose allows for the nose to narrow the nasal bone, thus closing up the open roof that is usually left when a nasal hump is shaved down.

Candidates for Rhinoplasty Surgery

While rhinoplasty is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures performed in Dallas and throughout the US, Dr. Bassichis has strict requirements to ensure his potential patients are healthy enough to undergo this elective plastic surgery procedure. They include:

  • Providing all your medical records
  • Being in good general mental health
  • Being in good overall physical health
  • Passing a pre-op exam from your general practitioner before surgery day

Rhinoplasty DallasAsk Dr. Bassichis about rhinoplasty surgery, and he’ll tell you the truth – no two rhinoplasty surgeries are alike. Many Dallas men and women seek out his skill to address a variety of issues of the nose, whether they be cosmetic or functional, meaning they are issues that interfere with breathing.

Commonly, patients visit Dr. Bassichis for an initial rhinoplasty surgery consultation to ask if the surgery can address their nostrils, often desiring to make them smaller when potential patients feel their nostrils are too wide. This is definitely something that Dr. Bassichis can address with this elective plastic surgery procedure.

Reducing Nostril Size with Rhinoplasty Surgery

While you may think that reducing the size of wide nostrils is a relatively easy procedure, it’s actually something that requires a careful patient evaluation, an individualized treatment plan, and a lot of skill and technique.

Dr. Bassichis’ Approach to Reducing Nostril Size

While Dr. Bassichis understands that Dallas residents with wide nostrils may want to significantly reduce them, he cautions them to be conservative with their goals. That’s because flaring nostrils are a common facial expression, and you don’t want to lose normal facial expressions and functionality just because you’ve had plastic surgery. You want your results to look natural, and make you look like the best version of you. That’s why Dr. Bassichis works so hard on compiling an individual treatment plan for you and explaining what you might expect your results to look like.

The Actual Surgery

During your nostril reduction rhinoplasty surgery, Dr. Bassichis will create an incision in the crease of the nose – where your nostrils meet your cheeks. From here, he’ll remove a wedge of the nostril wall. The incision will then be sutured (stitched up). Depending on your desired results that you have pre-communicated with Dr. Bassichis, your incision shape may be:

  • Triangular
  • Rectangular
  • Diamond-Shaped

Typically, your nostril reduction rhinoplasty incision is hidden in the crease of your nose so that you won’t have any obvious scars. Nostril reduction may also make your nose appear smaller and narrower.*

Your Recovery Process

All surgeries have a recovery process, and rhinoplasty surgery is no different. Usually, when you get your nostrils reduced, you’ll return to Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center to have your stitches removed. You’ll likely experience redness in the treatment area for the first two weeks post-op, as well as swelling for the first three weeks after your surgery. This is normal and to be expected. You can resume your normal day-to-day activities the day after your nose reduction rhinoplasty surgery, though many Dallas patients prefer to take two weeks off from social activities, including work or school, while they recover.

If you’re a Dallas patient desiring rhinoplasty, and you also smoke (or vape or use chewing tobacco), you might be wondering if your habit will affect your recovery process. The answer is a resounding, “yes”! Additionally, it can also complicate your surgery. For these reasons, Dr. Bassichis of Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center requires all his patients to refrain from nicotine usage of any kind for at least 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after surgery.

Why Does Smoking Affect the Rhinoplasty Recovery Process

Smoking has adverse effects on nose job recovery because it constricts your blood vessels. After rhinoplasty, or any surgery for that matter, you want to ensure you have the best possible blood flow so you can heal as quickly and properly as possible.

You see, our blood is a stream that delivers cells and antibodies to every part of our bodies through a complicated system of arteries and veins. Your body needs to flow at its maximum capacity to transfer nutrients to your nose after rhinoplasty so that you can heal.

But because nicotine usage constricts blood vessels, Dallas patients who choose to continue with their habit during their recovery process experience delayed healing. And the longer it takes for you to heal properly, the more at risk you are for developing complications – such as infections at your incision sites.

For the best possible recovery from rhinoplasty, Dr. Bassichis of Dallas’ Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery urges all his patients to quit smoking, vaping, or using chewing tobacco for at least 2 weeks after their procedure.

How Smoking Affects Your Surgery

So we’ve learned that smoking constricts blood vessels. Guess what? Blood vessel constriction can also make your nose job surgery more difficult to complete by restricting the amount of blood flowing during your procedure. We know you want your surgery day to go as smoothly as possible. For this reason, Dr. Bassichis also requires his facial plastic surgery patients to refrain from any nicotine usage for at least 2 weeks before their surgeries.

Getting Help Abstaining

We know that nicotine is addictive, and it’s really hard to quit. If you’re considering getting a nose job, it might be time to decide to quit for good. Before your surgery, you can use an over-the-counter smoking cessation product, such as step down nicotine gum, lozenges, or patches. You can also visit your Dallas primary care physician to be prescribed medication that has been proven to reduce nicotine cravings.

If over-the-counter or prescription medications aren’t enough to help you quit, you can sign up for a smoking cessation program that will help with the psychological and social aspects of kicking the habit, too. For a recommendation, ask your primary care physician or Dr. Bassichis during your initial consultation.

Ask Dr. Bassichis If You Have Any Questions

If you have any other questions about smoking and nose job recovery, or how to quit, don’t be afraid to ask Dr. Bassichis during your initial consultation or leave a message at his Dallas practice, Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery.

The important thing is to be honest. While Dr. Bassichis cares deeply about providing you with the surgical results you desire, your overall health and surgical safety his primary concern. If your surgery day is approaching, and you haven’t been able to stop smoking, Dr. Bassichis needs to know.

To schedule an initial consultation or talk to Dr. Bassichis about quitting your nicotine habit, contact our Dallas office at (972) 774-1777.

Rhinoplasty Dallas
  1. Consider How Much Time You’re Going to Take off from Work, School, or Other Social Activities

With rhinoplasty surgery, Dallas patients are able to resume their normal work, school or social activities the day after their outpatient procedure. Still, some prefer to stay indoors while they heal. Consider how long you’d like to stay home to recover. Most people who stay home do so for about 2 weeks.

  1. Be Prepared for Some Post Surgery Bruising and Swelling

Whether you’re having a nasal hump removed or your nose narrowed, rhinoplasty surgery is going to cause bruising and swelling in Dallas patients. This is completely normal and to be expected. This is also why some people decide to take a few weeks off from work, school or social activities while they heal.

  1. Remember, you May Not See Your Final Results for Up to 12-15 Months

We know you want your new nose now, but that’s just not how rhinoplasty surgery works. Depending on the specific procedures you’re having performed, it may take as long as 12 to 15 months for you to see your final, post-op results.

  1. Abstain from Exercising for 3-4 Weeks

Whenever you have a surgery, you need to take it easy for a while to recover. This is even true with rhinoplasty surgery, which only addresses your nose. Don’t hit your favorite area gym for at least 3 to 4 weeks after your procedure.

  1. Be Prepared for Your Post Rhinoplasty Surgery Look

Most Dallas patients report they aren’t in a significant amount of pain after their rhinoplasty surgery. However, it is normal to feel some stiffness, bruising and swelling the first few days after your surgery. Some patients, depending on the exact techniques performed, will also have internal nasal splints.

  1. Keep in Mind Some Discomfort is Normal After Rhinoplasty Surgery

No surgery is ever 100% comfortable. The same goes for rhinoplasty surgery. You can expect some minor discomfort after your elective plastic surgery procedure, including swelling and bruising around the face and eyes. Some patients will also experience slight bleeding from their nostrils. All of these side effects are completely normal and to be expected.

  1. Make Sure to Keep Your Post-Op Visits

It’s never a good idea to skip out on a post-op visit, especially not your first one where stitches might be removed. Keep all your post-op visits, and if you have to reschedule at the last minute, do so for as soon as possible.

  1. Your New Nose My Not Look “Normal” At First

Remember, it’s going to take a while for your new nose to appear. While most patients experience a significant reduction in swelling within the first 4-6 weeks after surgery, it may take up to 15 months to see your final results.

  1. Remember, Dr. Bassichis Performs Several Rhinoplasty Surgeries on Many Patients Every Year

If you’re looking for a great Dallas are rhinoplasty surgeon, you can’t do any better than Dr. Bassichis. He has years of experience and performs the surgery on a frequent basis.

  1. Sometimes, a Revision Surgery is Necessary

Even the best surgeons may find that two surgeries are necessary to get your ideal results. Keep in mind that when it comes to operating on the nose, it may be best for your overall look and health to have a revision surgery to get the results you desire.*

Rhinoplasty DallasAll plastic surgeons, especially Dallas facial plastic surgeon Dr. Bassichis, will tell you that no two rhinoplasty surgeries are the same. Everyone who desires a nose job has a different type of natural nose, and different problem area they would like to address. That’s why the surgery is so unique! Here are three of the most common reasons why you may consider getting a nose job.

  1. You Want to Remove a Nasal Hump

Many Dallas residents with a nasal hump on their nose find this natural facial features unattractive. Whether they dislike the way they look head-on or are unhappy with their facial profile, they just want this nasal hump gone for good. Rhinoplasty can help.

To remove an unwanted nasal hump, Dr. Bassichis gently shaves the nasal hump down. After that, he performs a procedure called lateral osteotomy, which is the medical term for breaking your nose. While this may sound like a harsh technique, it is needed when removing a nasal hump so that the nasal bone can narrow, as well as close the open roof that is usually created when a nasal hump is shaved down.

  1. You Have a Naturally Short Nose

Some Dallas residents choose rhinoplasty because they feel their noses are too short for their face. It’s actually a very common reason that patients come to Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center for a nose job. Depending on your unique situation, Dr. Bassichis can perform one of the following techniques to elongate your nose:

  • Radix Grafting

The radix is the upper part of the nose. Depending on your natural nose shape, Dr. Bassichis may choose radix grafting to add more cartilage at the top of your nose, allowing it to “start” higher up your face, giving you the longer nose shape you desire.

  • Caudal Septal Extension Grafting

Sometimes, patients’ noses only look short because their nasal tips are upturned. In this case, Dr. Bassichis can add cartilage to the tip of your nose, making your nose look longer.

  • Extended Spreader Grafts

Sometimes the space between the septum and lateral cartilage need to be extended. If this is the case for you, Dr. Bassichis will use extended spreader grafts, which are harvested pieces of cartilage, to make your nose longer.

  1. You Have a Breathing Issue and Desire Functional Rhinoplasty

Some Dallas residents come to Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center desiring rhinoplasty, not for a cosmetic reason, but a functional reason. This is common amongst patients who have difficulty breathing. Reasons for functional rhinoplasty include:

  • Chronic nasal congestion that isn’t resolved with medications
  • Breathing through the mouth constantly, especially at night
  • Frequently having dry mouth
  • A noticeably reduced sense of smell
  • Frequent, unexplained nosebleeds
  • Repeated sinus infections or headaches with no known medical cause
  • Eustachian tube dysfunction
  • Insomnia

Schedule a Rhinoplasty Consultation Today

These examples are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to why patients choose to have rhinoplasty. Whether you don’t like the aesthetic look of your nose or think you have a functional issue that could be resolved surgically, Dr. Bassichis would love to consult with you.

Young Woman with a Sculpted Nose Framing Her Face in her Hands

If you’re wondering if rhinoplasty is going to deliver drastic changes to your facial appearance, you’re not alone. In fact, it’s a common question that Dallas facial plastic surgeon Dr. Bassichis of Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center is asked during nose job consultations.

The answer to this question is, “yes, no, or possibly”. The reason it’s difficult to give a definitive answer is that every nose job is different, meaning your surgical results will vary depending on whether you are having cosmetic rhinoplasty to change the appearance of your nose (and if so, what degree of changes you are hoping to get), or if you’re getting a functional nose job to improve your breathing.

The Various Ways Cosmetic Rhinoplasty Can Alter the Appearance of Your Face

Dr. Bassichis finds that many Dallas residents don’t like the appearance of their nose, and feel like it doesn’t match their other facial features. Nose jobs can address several cosmetic concerns, including:

  • A protruding nasal hump
  • A pointy nose
  • A nose that looks too large for the patient’s face
  • A nose that looks too small for the patient’s face
  • A nose with a downward turned nasal tip
  • A wide nose
  • Nostrils that the patient finds are too big or too small

As you can see from the above list, there are so many different ways a nose job can alter your appearance, whether or not you’ll see results that you may find “drastic” all depends on your current appearance, and your surgical plan for the unwanted nasal appearance you’d like changed.

Nose Appearances Typically Stay Intact for Functional Rhinoplasty Patients

Some Dallas residents have a nose that they feel is as cute as a button. However, they’re plagued with breathing problems, and no medications for allergies or congestion have helped.

In some cases, functional rhinoplasty may be an option to help improve breathing in a Dallas patient. Because this procedure typically involves altering the internal shelves in your nose, most Dallas functional nose job patients don’t see drastic changes to their appearance after surgery.

If You’re Concerned Your Surgery Will Deliver Results that You Feel Will Be Too Drastic, Let Dr. Bassichis Know

When it comes to nose jobs and desired outcomes, the most important thing is to have open communication with Dr. Bassichis. He won’t know how aggressively to shave down a nasal hump, for example, if you don’t clearly communicate what you’d like your post-op nose to look like. Oftentimes, the best way to do this is to show him pictures of noses you like, so he has a visual as to what look you want to achieve.

Schedule a Consultation at Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center

If you’re considering a nose job, the best thing you can do is to speak with an experienced and talented facial plastic surgeon like Dr. Bassichis. During an initial consultation, he can evaluate your nose, listen to your concerns and desired outcomes, and together, he can help prepare a surgical treatment plan that will make you happy – whether that includes drastic or subtle changes to your facial appearance.
