Rhinoplasty Little Rock, AR
Little Rock Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Michael Devlin can perform rhinoplasty using an open procedure or a closed procedure. For an open procedure, an incision is created across the columella (strip of tissue separating the nostrils) as well as inside each nostril. The skin is lifted from the nose so that Dr. Devlin can see the nasal framework. Open rhinoplasty is helpful for reshaping the tip of the nose or more extensively revising the overall shape of the nose, as Dr. Devlin is able to see the internal structure. During a closed rhinoplasty, small incisions are created inside the nostrils in order to access the bone and cartilage allowing Dr. Michael Devlin to reshape your nose with less recovery than an open rhinoplasty.
Patients who consider cosmetic nasal surgery (rhinoplasty) find that there are several benefits to this facial plastic surgery procedure. A rhinoplasty surgery can create a nose that is in balance with the rest of the face, enhancing self esteem and self image in the process. This procedure addresses concerns such as:
- Nasal profile
- Overall size
- Nasal tip
- Nasal asymmetry
Dr. Michael Devlin also performs rhinoplasty surgery for functional reasons such as difficulty breathing and deviated septum. Most of the time these procedures are covered by insurance. He also treats nasal fractures and other trauma to the nose.

Rhinoplasty - Nose Surgery Recovery
Patients who choose to have rhinoplasty need to be patient during recovery. A splint will be used temporarily to protect the new shape of the nose, and bruising and swelling may be prominent for a few weeks. In general, most patients can return to work about a week after their procedure. Initial swelling will decrease several weeks after the procedure, but it may take a full year before all signs of swelling are gone. The shape of the nose may change in very subtle ways during this time. Dr. Michael Devlin will provide you with specific care instructions to expedite the healing process so you can enjoy your new, beautiful nose.
