Enhance facial harmony by correcting the proportions or shape of your nose, as well as the ability to breathe freely, with a rhinoplasty.
The nose is a very complex facial structure, and ADVENT Cosmetic Surgery Center considers both aesthetic appearance and functional aspects when performing rhinoplasty. Our surgeons are dual board certified in both otolaryngology and facial plastic or cosmetic surgery, allowing us to truly know the nose.
Nasal Valve Stenosis
Nasal airway obstruction commonly impacts breathing and airflow transfer to the lungs. Latera offers a minimally invasive solution to nasal collapse when inhaling. By inserting a small, absorbable implant into the nostril, cartilage support is provided and breathing becomes easier.
What should I expect?
During the rhinoplasty procedure, our surgeons will reshape the nose and address any sinus or breathing concerns. Sinus surgery, cosmetic rhinoplasty and septoplasty (correction of septum defects) can be performed together. Healing time for a rhinoplasty can be up to nine months or longer, as the remodeled nasal tissue assumes its final shape. Several post-operative follow up visits will occur to ensure progress is expertly monitored.
Following nasal valve stenosis repair with Latera, temporary bruising or irritation may occur, and the implant absorbs slowly across 18 months.
We focus on beauty and function of the nose.
