Rhinoplasty Layton, UT


Rhinoplasty is one of the most sought out surgical procedures. The nose is the most prominent feature of the face and when an individual isn't entirely happy about the features or the way it fits with the rest of their face, rhinoplasty is an excellent  surgical option to provide balance and  harmony to the face.

Utah Facial Plastics double board-certified ENT(otolaryngology) and facial plastic surgeons  perform upwards to 450 rhinoplasties per year and have over 50 years of combined experience in procedures of the face and neck. Rhinoplasty is one of the most difficult and complex cosmetic procedures to perform so it is important to choose a specialist that does these procedures often.

Drs. Henstrom, Thompson, and Manning are experts of the internal and external components of the nose and you can trust their expertise on  septoplasty, rhinoplasty, or revision rhinoplasty surgeries.  Our first-calss team of nurses, medical assistants, and staff are here to ensure your procedure and  experience are top notch from beginning to end. A consultation will help you get to know your surgeon, discuss your concerns or desires for change, and ultimately map out a path that is best for you if surgery is the right option.

what should i expect from my rhinoplasty consultation

When visiting with one of Utah Facial Plastics rhinoplasty experts, the surgeon will discuss your medical history with you and examine the bones and cartilages of your nose. There are many variables that are factored into re-shaping the nose.  A rhinoplasty may involve a simple bump shave or "dorsal hump" reduction or you may need an open rhinoplasty with changes that may include changing the nasal cartilages, resizing and lifting the tip, or more.  UFP doctors will always approach the surgery with safety and functionality being the most important aspects. If there is a desire to change the appearance of the nose as well as corrections in breathing (septoplasty), it is best to combine breathing and cosmetic changes together.

Each patient is unique and it is important to discuss the goals and changes that are desired and how they will harmonize with the rest of the face.  Following consultation along with optional digital imaging, our team will move forward with a plan if surgery is right and the patient wishes to proceed with having a procedure.

Rhinoplasty FAQ's

A rhinoplasty surgery permanently changes the structure of the nose and will last a lifetime. Take into account that normal aging will continue to occur that could cause some minor changes to the appearance of the nose, but overall the improvements of rhinoplasty surgery are there to stay. With removing or bringing down a "dorsal hump", sometimes calluses where the bone and cartilage were removed will form again and there is a chance a secondary bump shave may be needed. 

Rhinoplasty (nose job) surgery cost varies a little more with this procedure. There is a bigger contrast when it comes correction and improvements. At Utah Facial Plastics, the cost ranges from $3500 up to $16,000 for a revision rhinoplasty. It depends on what all needs to be done, internal and external changes. 

Utah Facial Plastics doctors are double board-certified in ENT(otolaryngology) as well as facial plastics and reconstructive procedures. They perform this surgery often and are highly experienced to ensure the best outcomes possible.

Rhinoplasty surgery is a process and the first week of recovery is the most difficult. Although most patients note mild to moderate pain, there is more discomfort with breathing. Nasal saline spray and a humidifier can help to relieve some that congestion. During the first week, swelling, bruising, and nasal discharge are the most noticeable symptoms. Some patients get black eyes, but this does not happen to everyone. A cast is usually placed and stays on for 1 week. If there are sutures and splints, those will be removed during that time as well.

Things will improve into the 2nd and 3rd weeks. It is important to not hit or bump your nose within the first 6 weeks and swelling will gradually go down over time. Although not generally noticed by others, it takes up to 1 year for the nose to fully heal from surgery. Many patients state that they are happy they chose to do surgery and the confidence it has given them.

Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a cosmetic procedure with the use of dermal fillers to temporarily change or mask irregularities of the nose. It can be an alternative for those who don't want to undergo surgery or are not ready to have surgery, but not everyone is a candidate. Dermal fillers used to change the nose can only do so much so it is best to come in for a consultation as well to determine what your options are. Results typically last about 6 months and the treatment will need to be done again.

Dr. Henstrom and Dr. Manning are the two providers that offer non-surgical rhinoplasty. This treatment does come with some higher risks so it is best to discuss these things with your doctor before moving forward with this treatment.
