Rhinoplasty Surgery with Dr. Gold

An important aspect to consider about nose reshaping is that your nose should look as though it “fits” on your particular face. Choosing a nose shape based on a popular look or trend will be unsatisfactory in the end. Dr. Gold will work with you to create the best possible shape for your nose, so that your nose is in the correct balance with the rest of your facial features.

Good Candidates for Nose Reshaping

If you're located in Boca Raton, West Palm Beach, or the nearby areas, and you're physically healthy, psychologically stable, and have realistic expectations, you will be a good candidate. Age is a consideration, as our surgeons prefer to operate on teenagers only after they have completed their growth spurt. Most insurance policies don’t cover our Boca Raton rhinoplasty surgery unless it is performed for reconstructive purposes, to correct a breathing problem or a deformity.

How a Rhinoplasty Is Performed

Rhinoplasty procedures are usually performed under general anesthesia in our Boca Raton accredited in-office surgery suite on an outpatient basis.

Depending upon the final goals and the extent of improvement required, your procedure may be done in either the open or closed method. This will be discussed during your consultation. During the procedure, the skin of the nose is separated from bone and cartilage which is then reshaped. Both permanent and temporary sutures are then placed and the nose is usually packed for a few days following the procedure. The length of the procedure ranges from one to two hours.

What to Expect During Recovery

For a closed rhinoplasty procedure, recovery time ranges from about 5 to 7 days and slightly longer for an open procedure. You will experience some swelling and bruising which may extend into the eyes, causing you to look as though you have black eyes. This can be relieved with pain medication and ice packs. Most patients are back to full activity within two weeks. Youll come back into the office within the first few days for your first postoperative visit at which time any non-absorbable sutures will be removed as well as the packing, depending on your rate of healing. It takes up to 6 months for the final results to be visible, so we advise our patients to exercise patience during this time as we wait for the final shape to appear. During that time, please avoid any contact sports that might injure the nose.

Revision Rhinoplasty

While all surgeons strive to achieve the ideal result in a single procedure, some patients experience problems in healing or because of a lack of communication with the original surgeon in agreeing on what changes they desire in the appearance of their nose. Dr. Gold not only performs primary rhinoplasties, but is often called upon to correct unsatisfactory results of other surgeons’ rhinoplasties.

Our West Palm Beach revision rhinoplasty are always more challenging but Dr. Gold devotes a significant portion of his practice to this very genre of complex procedures.
