Charlotte’s best rhinoplasty surgeon, Dr. M. Sean Freeman performs surgery for several reasons including reducing or increasing the size of the nose, changing the shape of the tip or the bridge, narrowing the width between the nostrils or modifying the area between the nose and the upper lift. Dr. Freeman can also perform rhinoplasty for health reasons such as improving respiratory function or correcting birth defects.
Rhinoplasty is performed by Dr. Freeman at his Charlotte NC clinic and is typically done under either sedation or general anesthesia and does not require an overnight stay. Recovery from surgery generally takes at least ten days. Swelling and bruising will occur, but will disappear in about a week.
Dr. Freeman recommends that his patients not undergo rhinoplasty surgery until they are at least 14 years of age for women and 16 years of age for men. This is because the nose may not be completely formed until individuals reach these ages. Dr. Freeman performs two types of rhinoplasty surgery, closed and open. Closed is the procedure typically done by Dr. Freeman, however if the patient requires significant modification to the tip of their nose, Dr. Freeman may perform open surgery. Closed has a much less extensive recovery than open, however patients usually return to normal activities within ten days with either procedure.
