Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery)
Rhinoplasty, sometimes referred to as a nose job by patients, enhances facial harmony and the proportions of your nose. It can also correct impaired breathing caused by structural defects in the nose.
If you have been considering rhinoplasty to change the shape and appearance of your nose, Dr. Slaughter combines decades of experience in cosmetic rhinoplasty along with a deep understanding of nasal function to provide a natural result with optimal function. His techniques which have been developed and refined over 25 years allow for minimal swelling, no intranasal packing, and rapid recovery.
This procedure is performed in our state of the art office procedure room with the assistance of a board-certified anesthesiologist to provide IV sedation. Dr. Slaughter uses a tiny incision at the base of the nose hidden in the shadow between the nostrils. He gains open access to the structures that make the nose and can address all of the common issues such as a nasal hump, large nose, large nasal tip, crooked nose, among other issues. It usually takes about an hour and patients can typically be driven home within 30 minutes of the procedure. It is frequently combined with procedures to enhance nasal breathing such as balloon sinuplasty, septoplasty, and turbinate reduction. Patients have a rapid recovery and may be able to work in a day or so after the procedure.
