Rhinoplasty is a serious sounding word, but it simply means "nose job". The word is from the Greek, "rhino" meaning nose, and "plassein" meaning "to shape". Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures today. Over 300,000 people a year are having it done. There are different techniques on how to perform this procedure. Dr Portuese offers the closed technique. This technique has all incisions placed inside the nose - no visable scars. This technique tends to heal faster and better than the open technique. The open technique has incisions on the outside of the nose. A good nose job is one that offers a natural look. The overall facial aesthetic and proportion plays a role in how to approach surgery so the final results will be natural. Most clients look for a natural result.

  Our Center

The rhinoplasty operation is the most common procedure done at the Seattle Rhinoplasty Center. A private consultation with Dr. Portuese will last approximately one hour in our office. There are many reasons why a rhinoplasty is performed such as reducing a large hump on the nose or other areas of the nose that are out of balance with the rest of the facial features such as a wide nose, a wide, boxy, bulbous tip. A droopy nasal tip can also be elevated to improve the aesthetic profile. A fractured or broken nose can simply be reset back to its normal pre-injury state. A rhinoplasty can be performed at the same time as a broken nose repair if a cosmetic change is desired. Typically, any cosmetic surgery is billed directly to the patient, and any functional or reconstructive surgery is billed to the patient’s healthcare insurance. A fractured nose typically makes the nose look crooked both in the cartilaginous and bony compartments whereby the nose bones are fractured, and sometimes a spreader graft of structural cartilage will have to be performed to widen a pinched upper lateral cartilage. Revision rhinoplasty surgeries are also performed at Seattle Rhinoplasty Center on a frequent basis for complications arising from previous surgery done elsewhere.
