About Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty Treats:

Nasal asymmetry
Humps on the nose
Enlarged tip or bridge
Deviated septum
The angle between the upper lip and nose


Usually 2-3 hours


Patients may notice swelling and bruising for up to 2 weeks. To guarantee proper healing, Dr. Hughes and his team may provide you with a nose-splint or gauze package. All of the proper steps are taken to maintain the desired image. After receiving a rhinoplasty procedure in Raleigh NC patients may experience one or two weeks of facial bruising.


Results are long-lasting, with full results seen after 1 year once all swelling has subsided. You may notice gradual changes in the appearance of your nose during this time as it refines to a more permanent outcome.


What is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job, is a procedure that is unique to each individual. Small incisions are performed on the nasal ridge to minimize any signs of scarring. Dr. Hughes and his team then perform the desired work to restructure, reshape, or redefine the nose. Dr. Hughes provides unmatched skill and expertise allowing for the most natural improvement.

Many individuals who are dissatisfied with their nose shape or proportion regain confidence once they reach their desired look. Both a rhinoplasty and chin augmentation are often combined and can be effective in bringing your facial features into more beautiful harmony.

Treatment Options

Cosmetic vs. Functional Rhinoplasty

A cosmetic rhinoplasty’s sole purpose is to improve the overall appearance of the nose. A functional rhinoplasty helps individuals who have trouble breathing. Some patients combine the two for a functional and aesthetically-pleasing result. The end result for both Rhinoplasty options is an appealing, proportional nose shape.

Open vs. Closed Rhinoplasty

What’s the difference between a closed and open rhinoplasty? An open Rhinoplasty involves an incision across the latter part of the nostril and inside to provide support. A closed Rhinoplasty involves incisions made on the inside of the nostrils to ensure quality precision when accessing the inner structures.
