What is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is an aesthetic procedure performed to improve the look and shape of the nose. Furthermore, it can help improve breathing function in some patients. New Orleans, LA plastic surgeon Dr. Mark W. Stalder is a seasoned cosmetic face and nose surgeon who performs rhinoplasty surgery, taking a subtle approach to allow for the most natural outcomes. Even though rhinoplasty consists of slight changes, results can be appealing and dramatic. Cosmetic nose surgery at Stalder Plastic Surgery is performed to make a nose appear smaller in size or change a misshapen nose that protrudes out, is too large or wide, or has a bump on top. The goal is to produce a more aesthetically appealing nose that meets your cosmetic desires and functions properly.

How Does a Rhinoplasty Work?

Rhinoplasty is performed while the patient is under general anesthesia and is considered an outpatient procedure. There are various surgical techniques, depending on your concerns and problems. Dr. Stalder performs nose surgery with either an open or closed technique. The goal during surgery is to reduce excess tissue and cartilage or to improve and add cartilage if necessary for reconstruction. The nasal features are repositioned, and the skin is reformed and draped over the newly improved framework. Stitches are placed either on the inside portion of the nose or along the natural external fold.

Following your rhinoplasty, you will be carefully monitored in the recovery section, and then our nurses will release you to recover at home. The nose and the surrounding area will be bruised and swollen for a week or so. In most cases, there is also bruising and discoloration under the eyes. Cold compresses and inflammatory medications can assist with these effects. Your post-operative appointment with Dr. Stalder will be scheduled within a day or so following surgery to check your healing process. It takes about 2 – 4 weeks to look normal following nose surgery. During this recovery phase, strenuous activity should be avoided.

About Us

I had considered having a rhinoplasty for several years but was nervous that I would come out looking like a completely different person. Additionally, I had a severely damaged septum making it difficult to breathe through one side of my nose. After meeting with Dr. Stalder and the exceptional team at Stalder Plastic Surgery I was convinced that I would be in capable hands. Dr. Stalder took the time to listen to my concerns and answered all of my questions. I am currently 6 weeks post op and I could not be happier! Dr. Stalder made the changes that I had wanted for so long while maintaining the integrity of my nose. The subtle changes didn't make me look like a different person but rather a better version of myself! I am thrilled with the results and would absolutely recommend Dr. Stalder and Stalder Plastic Surgery for all of your needs and especially if you are considering surgery. If you are looking for a plastic surgeon, you should absolutely meet with Dr. Stalder. Currently I receive Botox at Stalder Plastic Surgery and I am always pleased with the very natural looking results. The office is stunning and the staff are kind and helpful. While I am not ready for anything else right now, I know that I will not trust anyone else but Dr. Stalder for my future aesthetic needs.
