The Benefits of Getting Rhinoplasty

As you consider rhinoplasty to achieve your aesthetic goals, you’ll discover numerous benefits that make it a popular choice for enhancing facial appearance.

Restore Facial Symmetry

If the size or shape of the nose has distorted the overall symmetry of the face, rhinoplasty can restore facial balance and harmony.

Change the Size and Shape of the Nose

Rhinoplasty can address various issues with the nasal structure, correcting abnormalities of size or shape.

Boost Self-Confidence

A rhinoplasty procedure can provide natural-looking and beautiful results, significantly boosting your self-image.

Fix a Broken Nose

When a nose has been badly bent or broken in a traumatic accident, rhinoplasty may be the ideal option for reconstruction.

Improve Breathing

Rhinoplasty can provide a clearer airway, alleviating functional issues and improving breathing.

Alleviate Sinus Problems

A rhinoplasty may be one option for gaining lasting relief if you are especially prone to sinus infections and general nasal congestion.

Correct Congenital Abnormalities

Difficulties with the nose or sinuses can often be present from birth, but rhinoplasty offers an opportunity for the correct form and function.

Solve Snoring Issues

Rhinoplasty may offer a solution to snoring, allowing you and your partner to experience a more restful and peaceful night’s sleep.

Am I a Good Candidate for Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is more than just resizing your nose; it’s about creating a natural, harmonious appearance that complements your facial features. This highly individualized procedure aims to achieve symmetry and balance between both sides of your nose, ensuring a smooth and consistent look from all angles.

As a candidate for rhinoplasty, the goal is to enhance your profile in a way that aligns with your other facial features, avoiding an overly prominent or disproportionate nose. While perfect symmetry is rare, minimizing noticeable asymmetry, especially in the nose, is crucial. Remember that there isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution, as each person’s facial characteristics are unique.

If your nose is too wide or has a prominent bridge, hump, or bump, it may detract from your other features, such as your cheeks. Rhinoplasty aims to restore balance and create a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Rhinoplasty is great for:

  • Changes to the size or shape of the nose.
  • Achieving harmony between facial features.
  • Improving breathing or snoring habits.
  • Enhancing self-confidence and self-esteem.
  • Correcting nasal asymmetry or abnormalities.

Taking the First Steps

The first step in your rhinoplasty journey is a consultation with Dr. Ducic in a relaxed and confidential treatment area. Dr. Ducic will collect your medical history to confirm your eligibility for surgery. You will also be able to share your aesthetic goals and ask questions. You and Dr. Ducic will collaborate on a treatment plan that helps you achieve your objectives.

Meet Our Board-Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Yadro Ducic, MD, is a widely sought-after facial plastic surgeon known for his high level of clinical acumen and his command of cutting-edge techniques. Double board-certified in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and Head and Neck Surgery, Dr. Ducic possesses advanced training and experience in all aspects of facial restoration, including cosmetic and reconstructive approaches. In addition to authoring over 180 publications and lecturing at universities, Dr. Ducic has introduced innovative techniques in head and neck surgery and facial plastic surgery, significantly transforming how surgeons perform these procedures worldwide.


The Rhinoplasty Process Explained

Our individualized approach to rhinoplasty aims for consistently excellent, long-term results tailored to your unique features. Using grafts from the septum, ear, or rib, Dr. Ducic works to create stability and maintain the outcome over time. Dr. Ducic has also created a rib cartilage graft technique that minimizes discomfort and abnormalities.

His goal is to provide an honest assessment of the surgery’s goals and limitations. While modern techniques allow for significant improvements, certain changes may result in an unnatural appearance or cause nasal obstruction. Addressing aspects like reducing a large hump is typically more straightforward.

As you prepare for your surgery day, it’s essential to understand what to expect during the procedure and how to best manage your recovery for optimal results.

On the day of your surgery, the DFW Plastic Surgery team will welcome you and guide you to a private treatment area. Anesthesia will be administered to promote your comfort throughout the procedure.

During surgery, Dr. Ducic will make small incisions, often just inside the nostrils, allowing access to the bone, tissue, and cartilage underneath. He will then remove excess tissue and reposition bone or cartilage in order to achieve your desired cosmetic goals. The process may take multiple hours, depending on the complexity of your surgical objectives. Although the process may be lengthy, Dr. Ducic and his team always strive to make sure you feel like a member of the family.


Recovery and Aftercare

Rhinoplasty can range from relatively simple procedures involving internal incisions and minimal swelling to more complex ones requiring cartilage grafts for long-term structural improvement. The latter often involves a small incision at the nose’s base and may result in extended swelling. 

After awakening from surgery, you will find your nose secured with a splint, which may be required for up to a week. There might be gauze and padding in specific areas, but rest assured, Dr. Ducic will provide comprehensive post-operative care instructions to ensure your confidence upon departure. It is common to experience swelling and bruising around the eyes and cheeks, as well as sensations similar to having a cold. 

Although some discomfort is expected, Dr. Ducic may recommend over-the-counter or prescription medications for comfort. Recovery timelines vary, but you’ll likely feel ready to return to school or work within a week or so.
