"Dr Chidester and his staff are truly amazing! Every time I walk into his office his staff greets me with a smile and makes me feel so comfortable and important! Dr Chidester is amazing at what he does! I have had 4 breast augmentations over the past 25 years (with Two of those in the past year) I was never happy with the way they looked, it seemed like nobody was listening when I would tell them the look I wanted :( I heard about Dr Chidester from a friend and decided to go in for a consult to see if there was anything he could do to give me the look I wanted, long story short, I am 2 weeks post-op and could not be happier with the results!! I look at them everyday and cry! This is what I have wanted for all those years!! He can do miracles!! I can’t thank him enough for changing my body and my life at 52!!

Is Rhinoplasty For You?
Adults and teenagers over 16 years of age are candidates for cosmetic nose surgery. If you are unhappy with the size and shape of your nose and you have distinct issues that you want to improve or enhance, this procedure could help you attain your desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Chiddy will help you set realistic expectations because even with very subtle changes, your nose and facial profile will change. Additionally, before undergoing rhinoplasty, patients should have completed their facial growth. To determine if this surgery works best for you, Dr. Chiddy will perform an assessment and listen to your cosmetic goals and concerns.
Cosmetic nose surgery is performed while the patient is under general anesthesia, typically as an outpatient surgery. Based on your cosmetic concerns and problems, Dr. Chiddy will select the best surgical technique, such as a closed approach or an open method. During the procedure, the objective is to remove excess bone, cartilage, and tissue or to build and increase cartilage for a new shape. The nasal features are repositioned, and the skin is placed over the newly enhanced structure. To finish the surgery, Dr. Chiddy places stitches on either the inside portion of the nose or in the natural external fold.
What to Expect
After your procedure, you can rest comfortably in the recovery room, and then our nurses will release you to recover at home. The area around the nose will look very swollen and bruised for the first few days. Bruising and discoloration beneath the eyes and on the nose are very common symptoms for most patients. Consistently using cold compresses and prescription medication can assist with these effects. To assess your healing progress, we will schedule your follow-up appointment with Dr. Chiddy within a couple of days after the surgery. Generally, it takes about 2 – 4 weeks to recover from rhinoplasty. During this healing process, patients should avoid strenuous activity.
