Nose Surgery — Bellevue Rhinoplasty Incisions
Men and women are often self-conscious about their noses. For some people, the size may seem too big or too small; there may be bumps or indentations that are especially prominent in a profile; the nostrils may seem too large, uneven or misshaped; the tip of the nose may be too wide; or any number of other issues. Nose surgery, technically known as rhinoplasty in Seattle, is a common solution.
Other people may have problems breathing due to functional issues such as a deviated septum, which requires a functional rhinoplasty solution like a septoplasty. In many cases, it may even be a combination of functional and cosmetic issues that causes them to seek out rhinoplasty.
Nose surgery is a procedure in which facial plastic surgeon Dr. James Ridgway makes either inner or outer incisions to gain access to the cartilage of the nose. This process allows him to remove, reshape, resize, or rebuild a more harmonious structure that better flatters the features of the face and/or restores function to the nose.
The procedural techniques will vary depending on the type of correction required and the preferences of the patient.
