RHINOPLASTY (NASAL RESHAPING SURGERY)
In addition to his Rhinoplastic training at Emory, Dr. Jones received additional experience in Beverly Hills and Newport Beach, California. His goal was to use Rhinoplasty techniques learned in Beverly Hills and combine those with his training from Emory. Rhinoplasty (nasal reshaping surgery) is performed as a means of surgically improving the symmetrical and proportional balance of the nose, thereby enhancing the patient’s facial profile and increasing the overall aesthetic appeal of the face. Patients also seek out nasal reshaping surgery for non-aesthetic reasons, such as the correction of nasal cavity structural defects, which can interfere with proper sinus functioning and may potentially impair one’s ability to breathe.
Rhinoplasty is one of the most technically difficult cosmetic surgical procedures to perform, and requires the skillset of an expert plastic surgeon with extensive experience performing facial enhancement surgeries, such as Dr. Wright A. Jones, founder of Atlanta-based Muse Plastic Surgery. Dr. Jones is an exceptional plastic surgeon who combines clinical precision with careful attention to artistic detail in order to produce beautifully natural rhinoplasty results.
The size, position, and shape of the nose can either detract from, or enhance facial symmetry, which scientific evidence has demonstrated plays a significant role in the determination of facial attractiveness. Nasal reshaping surgery works to bring the shape of the nose into alignment with the rest of the face, and offers a number of cosmetic and health-related benefits, including:
- Minimize an overly large or wide nose
- Repair a deviated septum and/or damaged sinus cavities
- Reshape a nasal tip that is drooping, bulbous, or upturned
- Reduce the size of wide, flared or upturned nostrils

RHINOPLASTY PROCEDURAL DETAILS
Nasal reshaping surgery is performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia or twilight (IV) sedation, and involves either an open or closed incision technique:
- Open Rhinoplasty: during this procedure, which is ideally suited for patients who require more comprehensive nasal reshaping, Dr. Jones will make a small incision across the columella (the external end of the nasal septum)
- Closed Rhinoplasty: for this technique, which is better suited for patients needing only minor nasal modifications, Dr. Jones will conceal the incisions within the nose
For both open and closed procedures, Dr. Jones will construct a more proportionally balanced and aesthetically pleasing nose by utilizing pieces of cartilage from the septum (the partition dividing the left and right airways of the nose) to fortify and augment the pre-existing nasal structures.
Following your rhinoplasty procedure, you can expect to experience some degree of post-operative bruising and swelling around your eyes and cheeks, which should dissipate within 7-21 days. Dr. Jones will place temporary nasal splints to support the nose and facilitate proper healing, and he will provide you with instructions as to the steps you can take to ensure a safe and successful recovery period.
