Primary Rhinoplasty (Nose Job) Surgery
Rhinoplasty (commonly referrd to a “nose job”) is a plastic surgery procedure that involves reshaping the nose. It can be either a cosmetic procedure performed to improve the appearance of the nose, a medically necessary procedure to improve nasal breathing, or a combination of both. Salt Lake City Rhinoplasty is a Rhinoplasty Specialist that offers all types of nose surgery at the Salt Lake City Rhinoplasty Center. Primary rhinoplasty refers to first-time nasal surgery, whether for cosmetic or functional purposes, as opposed to Salt Lake City secondary (revision) rhinoplasty, which indicates the patient has had one or more previous rhinoplasty surgeries.
Primary rhinoplasty is accomplished by removing excess bone and cartilage from beneath the skin covering the nose. In some cases, cartilage grafts are added to help remodel the nasal framework. After alteration of the supporting structures, the skin is repositioned over the newly shaped framework to give the nose its new appearance. The changes may be subtle or dramatic, depending on the needs of the patient.

Our Goals for Primary Rhinoplasty
Sandy Rhinoplasty clinic’s goal is to produce a nose that looks natural, functions properly, and is in balance and harmony with other facial features. The “operated look” is thereby avoided. The Utah Rhinoplasty Center offers 3D Rhinoplasty Simulation using the Vectra 3D Imaging System to simulate the proposed before and after results of rhinoplasty surgery. While each primary rhinoplasty patient’s wishes are always central to what we do, there are limiting factors. Skin texture and thickness, previous injuries or nasal surgeries, individual variations in healing, and facial proportion and contour play important roles in what can, and should, be achieved with a nose job. These and other factors will be fully discussed during your consultation.
For your convenience, you may choose to complete an Internet Consultation to determine your eligibility for nasal surgery before you visit our office. This optional online rhinoplasty consultation helps our doctor assess whether you are a good surgical candidate, the degree to which they can ultimately address your individual situation, or can save you a trip to Idaho if you are not a good candidate for Utah Rhinoplasty.
