Rhinoplasty / Nose Job

What is a Rhynoplasty/Nose Job?

 Rhinoplasty is cosmetic procedure that reshapes your nose appearance. It is estimated that 1 out of 6 human beings are not comfortable with the look of his/her nose. Some noses might have bumps, look large, too small, curvy or disproportionally wide. The key to this surgery is performing the technique necessary to make sure you are satisfied with your new look. Whatever your situation might be, at Family Hospital we will make sure you feel confident about your after surgery appearance. Rhinoplasty can also be performed to aliviate breathing problems such as a deviated septum. Both procedures can be performed at the same time.  A balanced, natural-feel appereance is key to the overall results of your surgery. Different ethnic groups  have different style of noses and with hundreds of medical travelers coming for rhinoplasty surgery to Mexicali every year, our surgeons will perform your surgery with excellent results.  It's important to explain with confidence exactly what your concerns are so we can address them clearly prior to booking your trip.  
How Rhinoplasty surgery is performed at Family Hospital?  

 Our doctors will make an incision either in the internal part of your nose or across the skin where the nostrils are separated. This will depend particularly on what results you wish to have after your surgery. Once inside, our surgeons will work with your cartilage and bone patiently sculpting the frame of your nose to achieve the results you have been dreaming of. The skin and bone is separated during the procedure but once the sculpting is complete, the skin and bone is reattached finalizing the surgery. A nose job takes a maximum of 2 hours from start to finish and in some situations a piece of cartilage from your ear is used. These determinations will be addressed during your physical consultation.  It is usually performed under local anesthesia. After your surgery you will recover in the recovery room followed by your private hospital room. Rhinoplasty is usually performed as an outpatient procedure but at Family Hospital we will compliment our services by offering you an after surgery night of recovery in one of our private hospital rooms.
