Your Safety Matters! At EVOLV Plastic Surgery and Medical Aesthetics, Dr. Barone – a board-certified skilled plastic surgeon in Toledo, Ohio whose expertise is in aesthetic surgery– is here to help restore your confidence with rhinoplasty (also known as ‘nasal reshaping’ or the ‘nose job’).
This procedure works both aesthetically to improve facial proportions and functionally often improving airflow & breathing issues related to nasal structure problems. With careful planning & skillful execution of this surgical procedure, you can look forward to not only having an appearance that complements other facial features but also improved health outcomes due to clear airways!
What Is The Difference Between Open And Closed Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty in Toledo can be performed in two ways: the (closed technique) done from entirely internal intranasal incisions or more often, the (open technique) done through a small incision in the columella, the narrow column of tissue separating the nostrils.
How It Works
Rhinoplasty is a delicate, precise procedure that requires experienced hands to achieve desired outcomes. Dr. Barone will discuss the plan of action with you and our board-certified anesthesiologist to make sure your experience is as comfortable as possible during surgery.
Through carefully crafted incisions, excess or asymmetrical parts are trimmed away while poorly supported structures may be fixed using cartilage from other sources like the nasal septum for adequate shape restoration before being held in place with sutures and specialized fixation techniques if needed.
Internal valves regulating airflow can also benefit from surgical grafts which help enhance breathing performance overall when combined by narrowing overly wide or uneven bones through narrow slits formed at their base – all leading up to re-draped skin tissue after reshaping finishes where it’s checked one final time before closing off any openings made throughout this process eventually capped off by postoperative packing/splinting measures for complete operation security!
What It Treats
Rhinoplasty can do wonders to sculpt and perfect facial symmetry, enhancing the delicate balance between your nose and other features. Common areas of focus include reducing a large bridge or nostrils and an over-presented hump on the bridge; refining overly square nasal tips, enlarging pinched ones, and correcting twisted nasals; restoring harmony when there is an asymmetry in size or proportion - all while addressing any issues with airflow that may be caused by deviated septums or polyps!
Imbalanced nasal size and proportions which do not compliment facial features
Excess or asymmetrical width of the nose at the bridge or the nostrils
A larger or disproportionate nasal hump and bridge
A nasal tip that is square, enlarged, bulbous, pinched, or twisted
Nasal asymmetry and disproportion
Obstructed nasal airflow or irritation caused by a deviated nasal septum or polyps
- A rhinoplasty takes 2.5 to 4 hours to complete depending on the area and the extent of the treatment.
- The recovery time for rhinoplasty is typically two to three weeks.
- Rhinoplasty is usually performed under general or sometimes intravenous anesthesia.
- A rhinoplasty can give you a natural, attractive nose while also providing improved breathing and airflow function, even improving your sense of smell in some cases. When done properly, it results in a natural nasal shape, and a nasal tip that is symmetrical and enhances facial profile and contour. The desired result is often achieved with balanced symmetry that compliments facial features for an overall enhanced appearance!
- Natural Appearance When done properly, a ‘non-operated’ and natural appearing nasal shape that compliments facial features.
- Better Breathing Optimal breathing and airflow function.
- Enhanced Smell An improved sense of smell in selected patients.
- Symmetrical Appearance A nasal tip that is symmetrical and enhances facial profile and contour.
How Rhinoplasty Works
During your consultation in Toledo, you will have the opportunity to discuss all aspects of the potential procedure – from expected outcomes and risks involved to discussing any pre-existing conditions or health factors that could affect results.
You’ll also get advice on which nasal reshaping options are best suited to achieving your desired look while ensuring ideal breathing capabilities where possible. Dr. Barone may further examine and measure your face as well as take photographs prior to discussing your nose surgery options for improvements aesthetically and functionally!
Before The Procedure
Before the surgical procedure, general anesthesia is administered by a board–certified anesthesiologist. Depending on how complex the surgery is, intravenous sedation or nerve blocks with local anesthesia may be used to ensure comfort throughout the surgery.
During The Procedure
Rhinoplasty is a popular procedure that uses incisions to reshape the nose and improve its appearance. A closed or open technique is used – with hidden cuts inside the nasal passageway versus one across the columella (the tissue strip between nostrils). The underlying structures can then be sculpted into their new shape; cartilage may also need to be added for further structure reinforcement.
Moreover, any deviated septa are straightened, and projections reduced to restore proper breathing capabilities – culminating in repositioning skin flaps around newly contoured areas before stitches close everything up again. Additional modifications may be done at natural creases along both sides for those wanting smaller care holes.
After The Procedure
Following a rhinoplasty, you may see gradual changes in the appearance of your nose as it refines to its desired look. In order to aid healing and reduce infection risk, we will provide instructions on how best to care for the surgical site – items such as splints and gauze packing that can help support your nasal contour during recovery. Initial swelling typically subsides within weeks.

What Our Patients Are Saying
The expertise of Dr. Barone is matched only by both his care for his patients, and his passion for his work. Oftentimes, surgeons can come off as cold and too clinical, but with Dr. Barone, I felt comfortable not only with his attitude and approach, but also with his focus on both the minutia of the surgery, and the overall results I could expect. The results, of course, were excellent—even more so when considering that Dr. Barone achieved what a previous surgeon could not. Dr. Barone and his staff were well above average in their execution of patient care—both pre-op and post-op. I strongly recommend Dr. Barone for anyone considering a Rhinoplasty in Toledo.
Dr. Barone did an excellent job on my rhinoplasty. Revision from a previous surgery.
I consulted with Dr. Barone because I was unhappy with the appearance of my nose. I had a rhinoplasty many years ago that left me with a not so great result and new issues that I did not have prior to the surgery. After talking with Dr. Barone, seeing multiple before and after photos of his patients and having the Vectra imaging done in his office I knew he was the one who could help me. It has only been a few weeks since my surgery and not only has my breathing improved but my nose already looks beautiful! I was always teased growing up and have not liked my nose for as long as I can remember. To go through the first surgery and come out with new problems was very discouraging and upsetting and I thought it was something I was just going to have to live with. I finally feel like my nose looks the way it was always supposed to. Dr. Barone is a skilled surgeon who is also very artistic. When you put those two qualities together, you get a beautiful, natural result. I will never be able to thank Dr. Barone enough for what he has given me.
I can’t brag enough about this doctor and staff, they make you feel like family the moment you walk in the door. They take time to explain everything step by step as needed to you, they don’t rush you, let’s just some it up THEY CARE I will be back for many more things to come… Thank You
