Rhinoplasty at The Secret Plastic Surgery in Miami
Rhinoplasty in Miami, also known to patients as “nose job” or “nose reshaping” improves the appearance of your face. It can also correct impaired breathing caused by structural defects in the nose.
What is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty improves the facial appearance and the proportions of the nose. It can also correct shortness of breath caused by a deviated septum.
If you desire a more symmetrical nose, keep in mind that everyone’s face is asymmetric to some degree. Results may not be completely symmetric, although the goal is to create facial balance and correct proportion. At The Secret Plastic Surgery we specialize to obtain the best results of rhinoplasty in Miami.

Rhinoplasty procedure process
Medications are administered for your comfort during the surgical procedure. The choices include intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. Your doctor will recommend the best choice for you.
Rhinoplasty is performed either using a closed procedure, where incisions are hidden inside the nose, or an open procedure, where an incision is made across the columella, the narrow strip of tissue that separates the nostrils.
Through these incisions, the skin that covers the nasal bones and cartilages is gently raised, allowing access to reshape the structure of the nose.
Reshaping the nose structure
An overly large nose may be reduced by removing bone or cartilage. Sometimes surgery of the nose may require the addition of cartilage grafts.
Most commonly, cartilage from the septum, the partition in the middle of the nose, is used for this purpose. Occasionally cartilage from the ear or rarely a section of rib cartilage can be used.
Correcting a deviated septum
If the septum is deviated, it can be straightened and the projections inside the nose reduced to improve breathing.
Closing the incision
Once the underlying structure of the nose is sculpted to the desired shape, nasal skin and tissue is redraped and incisions are closed.
Additional incisions may be placed in the natural creases of the nostrils to alter their size.

For a few days, splints and gauze packing may support the nose as it begins to heal.
