An Overview of the Rhinoplasty Procedure
To begin your Bellevue nose job, Dr. Ridgway will administer either intravenous sedation or general anesthesia to ensure your comfort and safety. During your initial consultation, he will discuss each of these options with you and help you determine which one is in your best interest.
For your actual procedure, Dr. Ridgway will make an incision inside the nostrils to conceal future scarring. He will then expertly reshape the underlying bone and cartilage to create the perfect nose for your face. Once your cosmetic issues have been addressed, he will also correct structural issues that are contributing to difficulty breathing, such as a deviated septum. Once he has sculpted your ideal nose, Dr. Ridgway will redrape the nasal skin and tissue before expertly closing the incisions.
