Primary Rhinoplasty & Functional Rhinoplasty
Dr. Hillstrom and Dr. Wright are uniquely qualified and have undergone extensive training in corrective nasal surgery (rhinoplasty), which can be performed for both cosmetic and functional reasons.
Rhinoplasty is considered by many facial plastic surgeons, in Sarasota and elsewhere, to be one of the most challenging cosmetic procedures to perform. In Sarasota rhinoplasty is performed by a handful of trained facial plastic surgeons who have specifically studied both otolaryngology and facial plastic surgery in order to ensure that both your aesthetic concerns and anatomic functionality are addressed.
In primary rhinoplasty, the doctor will surgically refine the nose’s size and shape to create the most ideal nasal proportions. By blending the nose in with the other facial features, harmony and beauty are created. This enhances the eyes which are the “portal to the soul”.
Depending on the type of rhinoplasty the patient receives, small well-hidden incisions are made inside of the nose. Cartilage and bone are then reshaped to create a refined aesthetic. For those affected by a deviated septum (a condition where the bone or cartilage is actually obstructing the nasal cavity), Dr. Hillstrom or Dr. Wright may perform a septoplasty. Some patients have reported that this procedure actually improved their breathing.
There are several factors to consider when deciding which approach is ideal for you. A consultation is strongly suggested to determine your specific needs.

Medical colleagues who are familiar with their expertise in revision rhinoplasty refer many patients to Dr. Hillstrom and Dr. Wright. This procedure is usually performed when previous rhinoplasty has resulted in an unsatisfactory appearance or a breathing problem. Dr. Hillstrom and Dr. Wright are highly experienced in performing revision rhinoplasty procedures and have corrected the noses of many patients throughout Florida's Westcoast.
It is important to wait at least six months to a year after your original nasal surgery before considering a revision rhinoplasty. In some cases, swelling in the nose can persist for up to one year and the final results may not be visible until that time. Once the swelling resolves, all abnormalities can be appreciated and a plan can then be made to resolve any concerns regarding your appearance or breathing.
