Nasal tip refinement is a minimally invasive rhinoplasty procedure which is performed by Dr. Casas when you desire minor changes to the appearance of the tip of your nose. Candidates for nasal tip refinement surgery believe that their nasal tip does not fit with the rest of their face, whether too large, too long, too wide, too narrow, or too droopy. Dr. Casas will discuss with you whether nasal tip refinement will meet your goals and expectations.
In your initial consultation, Dr. Casas will examine your nose including the skin quality, size, shape, and relationship to your other facial features. She will ask you to describe the exact features of your nose you would like altered. If she feels you have realistic expectations, she will discuss the pros and cons of the procedures available to achieve your desired result.
Recovery from rhinoplasty is a gradual process and final results of your rhinoplasty will continue to evolve as swelling and bruising subsides. Dr. Laurie Casas will hide any incisions in natural contours or even inside the nose itself. Dr. Casas will also provide you with a medication and supplement regimen to keep you as comfortable as possible and to hasten the healing process. In addition, she will explain tips to minimize swelling, such as sleeping with your head elevated for a few days after surgery. A nasal splint and tape are used to support reshaping of your nasal bones and to reduce swelling. While the final result will be evident by one to two years after surgery, you will be able to enjoy your reshaped nose and resume non-aerobic activity within weeks after surgery. She will ask you to avoid contact sports to protect your reshaped nose.
