How does rhinoplasty work?

Many of our Houston rhinoplasty patients may ask during consultation how does rhinoplasty work?  Rhinoplasty is a procedure where the shape of the nose is changed.  Dr. Funk normally performs nose job surgery with an open rhinoplasty approach which requires a small incision between the nostrils.  The other incisions are around the nostrils on the inside and the skin overlying the cartilage and bone is elevated to expose the framework of the nose.  At this point, the framework can be manipulated with reshaping the cartilage, rasping or controlled fractures of the bone, and using cartilage grafts from the patient's septum.  The skin incisions are then closed.


Dr. Funk is a top rhinoplasty surgeon in Houston Texas.
