"Dr chidester is amazing! He pays great attention to detail and made sure I felt taken care of and all my questions were answered. He did my breast reconstruction case which has always made me feel self conscious. I had been to other consultations with plastic surgeons. He is the only one I felt so comfortable with. Also, he had other options that no one had offered me. He is a really popular and great plastic surgeon and think it’s great he said yes to my case! He never promises perfection but comes pretty close to it! I feel pretty great and my confidence has gone up so much! Safe to say he will always be an important part of my journey through life and his knowledge and expertise will always have a positive impact on my life and others.

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.
