What Can a Nose Job Do For You?

While the shape of your nose is usually the result of heredity, the appearance may have changed due to an injury or prior surgery. Depending on your unique needs, nose surgery can:

  • Sculpt a smaller nose that’s more proportionate to your other facial structures
  • Reduce the width of the nasal bridge
  • Correct visible humps and depressions along the bridge
  • Improve a large, bulbous, drooping, or upturned nasal tip
  • Address nostrils that are large, wide, or upturned
  • Improve nasal asymmetry and deviation

What to Expect During Surgery

After anesthesia has been administered, Dr. Moran will make incisions inside your nose or across the columella – which is the strip of tissue separating the nostrils. Through those openings, she can reshape the structure of the nose. This is accomplished by removing bone and cartilage and grafting cartilage from the septum. In all instances, Dr. Moran makes conservative changes to ensure a natural outcome. She may also change the size of your nostrils by placing incisions in their natural creases. If you reported breathing challenges before nose surgery, Dr. Moran will straighten your deviated septum and ensure that the internal structures of your nose are positioned for healthy breathing. From there, she will redrape the nasal skin and close the incisions.

Where is rhinoplasty performed?

Nose surgery in Franklin, TN is performed on an outpatient basis, meaning patients can return home soon after the surgery is over. It will take place at a fully accredited surgery center.

What kind of anesthesia is used?

It depends on the extent of your nose job. Prior to surgery, Dr. Moran will either administer local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia.

What is the recovery like?

You can expect swelling and bruising as you heal. We will remove the splint by the seventh day. Most patients are presentable and well enough to return to work and normal activities, including vigorous exercise, in approximately ten to fourteen days.

How much does rhinoplasty cost?

Dr. Moran will tailor your rhinoplasty procedure to your individual needs. As such, the cost will vary. After Dr. Moran analyzes your nasal contours, she will develop a surgical plan to address the cosmetic issues you want to correct. She will then discuss the price you can expect to pay for the surgery.

Liquid Rhinoplasty A Non-surgical, Nose Reshaping Experience

Using dermal fillers like Juvéderm and Restylane, liquid rhinoplasty can temporarily address a wide range of aesthetic imperfections – including a dorsal hump, a drooping nasal tip, and overall asymmetry.

During this procedure, Dr. Moran will inject precise amounts of filler into the nose to recontour the area. It’s a safe and effective – albeit temporary – alternative to rhinoplasty.

The treatment takes around 15 minutes and the results are immediate. There is very minimal recovery time, and you can return to work the same day. There’s no anesthesia, and the results are reversible if you don’t like the outcome. However, if you like the results, they can last up to two years, depending on the filler used. At that point, you’ll need to return to our Nashville office to repeat the procedure and preserve your results.
