Considering plastic surgery? Plastic surgery is a personal and important decision. Dr. Simmonds wants to assure you that he and his staff is committed to providing personalized and quality care. We welcome the opportunity to give you the information you need to make the best possible decisions.
Rhinoplasty surgery is one of the leading procedures done in the United States; the nose is the most prominent feature of our face and is what sets the harmony and balance of all your other facial features. You may feel your nose is too large, too wide, or you may have a hump. This is a common complaint.
Dr. Simmonds specializes in what is called a “closed approach rhinoplasty”. This procedure leaves no external scars. Even at the closet of angels it is virtually impossible to notice any scars. The incision is made on the inside of the nostril.
Rhinoplasty also referred to as nasal reshaping, can be done at an early age, as long as the growing process is complete. Both men and women, young and old, make changes to the shape of their noses.
Most people believe that by doing a rhinoplasty they will be making themselves look like someone else or will be getting “someone else’s” nose. Those days of going into your plastic surgeon’s office and asking for a particular celebrity’s nose are gone.
As with any surgery Dr. Simmonds will review your medical history with you, past and present medications you may be taking including herbal supplements and risks and benefits of the surgery. Surgery takes about two and half hours depending on what is done. This procedure is done at an outpatient surgery center, under general anesthesia. The nose is packed for twenty-four hours and removed the next day at your one-day post op check.
No blowing your nose for one month and no sticking anything up your nose to clean it, if you need to sneeze, try to sneeze out the mouth. Patients may resume most normal activities within one week. It is our goal to give you the best results possible to enhance and balance your facial features
