What is rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure which either corrects some type of medical problem such as a deviated septum or which improves the features and appearance of your nose. The surgery is typically a low-risk surgery and is extremely popular, especially among teenagers.
Deciding on the surgery
Before you decide to go ahead with rhinoplasty surgery, meet with Dr. M. Sean Freeman, Charlotte’s top rhinoplasty surgeon to discuss the details of the surgery procedure, as well as your goals for the surgery.
Different types of rhinoplasty surgery
Dr. Freeman performs three primary types of rhinoplasty surgery. These are closed, open and revision.
Most surgery procedures performed by Dr. Freeman are closed rhinoplasty surgery. Dr. Freeman makes several small incisions on the inside of your nose and then makes the necessary revisions or corrections without creating any scars on the exterior of your nose. If you require extensive repairs or modifications to your nose, Dr. Freeman may perform open rhinoplasty surgery. Dr. Freeman will make an incision across the base of the nostrils exposing the cartilage so he can make the necessary modifications.
Revision rhinoplasty is done to correct previous surgery. Dr. Freeman does more revision than any other facial plastic surgeon in Charlotte NC or the entire Southeast. This surgery can address several different issues, including misplaced grafts, lost nasal support structure, or built up scar tissue. Dr. Freeman has more than twenty years’ experience performing rhinoplasty surgery procedures and is dual board-certified by both the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and by the American Board of Otolaryngology, which certifies neck and head surgeons. Dr. Freeman recommends you wait at least one year before considering revision surgery.
