Rhinoplasty at the University of Ottawa
Ottawa patients can opt for nose reshaping surgery, also known as rhinoplasty, to address both cosmetic and functional concerns with the nose. The prominence, size, shape, placement and symmetry of the nose can be enhanced to reveal a harmonious and cosmetically pleasing outcome. In the case where injury or congenital defect has impaired function, a rhinoplasty procedure reconstructs and restores the healthy function of the nasal passageways along. This can result in a nose with improved function which may also be more aesthetically pleasing. During an in-depth consultation, your surgeon will review your health and medical history and establish a plan to achieve your treatment objectives. During the operation, incisions are made inside the nose to access the soft tissues and cartilage in order to reshape the nose. Sutures are applied and a stent is placed over the nose for protection and support as it heals. Your surgeon will discuss what to expect pre-, during and post operation to ensure your comfort, safety and optimal recovery.
