Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is a type of surgery that reshapes the nose in order to enhance its structure. At Wellspring, we routinely perform rhinoplasty procedures in our Austin office to provide improvements to the facial structure, correct a deformity on the nose, or correct breathing problems.

The specific desired results of the procedure often include a modification of the shape of the nose, a reduction in the size of the nose, a modification or reduction of the nostrils, or correction of a birth defect or injuries.

Rhinoplasty has risen to prominence is one of the most common cosmetic procedures performed in the U.S. Most surgeons recommend that parents not have their children undergo this procedure until the age of 13 or 14 due to the fact that the nose continues to develop in children up to this age. Also, it is important for patients themselves to fully understand both the benefits and risks of the procedure. Drinking alcohol and smoking are strongly discouraged – they significantly reduce blood flow to the skin, making less oxygen available for the healing of surgery incisions, potentially resulting in necrosis, which is the death of the skin.

Some people contact us who require a revision rhinoplasty to solve issues resulting from or left unaddressed by an initial rhinoplasty procedure performed by another cosmetic surgeon.

Frequently Asked Questions

Healing and recovery time can vary from one patient to another. It also depends on the type of rhinoplasty procedure you receive and the extent of the procedure. However, the average recovery time can last anywhere between two weeks and a few months.

As with any cosmetic or medical procedure, there are a few minor potential risks that are associated with rhinoplasty.

  • Discolouration and slight swelling around the nose
  • Various sensations such as numbness, itchiness, or discomfort
  • Adverse reactions to anesthesia (it’s important to provide a complete list of allergies before the procedure)
  • Infection if proper aftercare isn’t administered
  • Some scarring or redness
  • Nasal septal perforation (a small hole in the septum) – this is rare but is treatable in most cases
  • Possible need for revision surgery (this is not uncommon)
  • Dissatisfaction with the end result
  • Labored breathing (which can be corrected through revision rhinoplasty)

Depending on the nature of the procedure, rhinoplasty is usually performed on an outpatient basis in either a hospital or a clinic. You may be required for a few extra hours post-op for observation, but you most likely won’t have to stay overnight.

Open rhinoplasty is when the facial plastic surgeon makes an incision on the inside of the nostrils and on the outside of the columella, which is the external strip of cartilage that unites the nostrils. This procedure is much easier to perform than a closed rhinoplasty because it makes it easier for the surgeon to be able to see what they’re doing.

Closed rhinoplasty is when all of the incisions are made from the inside of the nasal passage. This is the more popular option because all of the scarring—as minimal as it is—appears on the inside of the nose. The recovery time is also usually a lot shorter.

Revision rhinoplasty is a secondary rhinoplasty procedure that you can undergo if you’re unsatisfied with the results of the first procedure or to correct post-op complications that may arise.

Rhinoplasty is permanent in the sense that as long as your facial features are fully developed, then your nose won’t change shape on its own. That being said, rhinoplasty is also reversible and unpleasant results can be corrected through revision rhinoplasty if necessary.

Dr. Cone and his staff were amazing. They took such good care of me and my daughter like family. Highly recommend for adult and kids! Esther Cheung-Phillips
These guys are awesome! The personal care given by Dr. Langevin is absolutely second to none. You will feel like the only patient there Skeeter Ham
From beginning to end Dr. Langevin and his staff took care of me in the most excellent way. From scheduling all the way to post op, they never made me feel like a number but a human that was in good hands. I really appreciated the personal call from Dr. Langevin- not from his staff but from him. That is rare these days to have doctors call you themselves to check on you after surgery. I couldn't be more happy with my results. Aguerra Love
I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Cone at Wellspring. Their entire staff is incredibly kind and obviously care about their patients. Crystal was so sweet and such a pleasure to work with. They did a removal of a large facial nevus for me and I am so happy with the results! The entire thing has been truly lifechanging for me. I am very grateful for Dr. Cone & his team and look forward to seeing them when I go for my follow-up visit. Kaylie Peterman
My experience so far has been amazing, even though my anxiety is over the roof when it comes to Dr's. Dr.Cone and his staff have been awesome and make me feel as comfortable as they can. I got otoplasty done and I can't wait for the final results, I do definitely recommend this place for anything else you'd like to get done. I do plan on getting other things done in the Future and without a doubt this is the place! Thank you Dr.Cone, Crystal, Brandi, & Cici you all are the best! Dori Dori
