About this Episode

Facial plastic surgeon Dr. Kiersten Riedler answers important questions about noses and rhinoplasty, like do your nose and ears really keep growing as you age? How old do you have to be to have rhinoplasty? What should you do if you get hit in the nose with a baseball?

Although no two noses are the same and no two rhinoplasty procedures are the same, the approaches to surgery are fairly standard. Dr. Riedler explains the open approach, in which an incision is made externally between and inside the nostrils, and the closed approach, which consists of more extensive internal incisions, but none on the outside.

Many people worry about recovery following nose surgery, and the most common complaint Dr. Riedler hears from patients after surgery may surprise you (hint: it’s not pain).

On this episode, Dr. Riedler shares what you need to know about cosmetic rhinoplasty and what to do if your rhinoplasty is needed as a result of an injury.
