How does Dr. Miller correct a Ski slope nose?

A rhinoplasty procedure to correct a ski slope nose takes approximately 2-5 hours for Dr. Miller to perform. Ski slope nose rhinoplasty is done under general anesthesia.

Depending on the severity of your sloped nose, as well as your expectations, Dr. Miller can either use an open or closed rhinoplasty technique.

During an open rhinoplasty, Dr. Miller makes a small incision in the columella, which is the tissue that connects the nasal bridge and base and separates the nostrils. This technique allows Dr. Miller to see the nose’s internal structures, allowing him to easily maneuver through the tissue, bone, or cartilage. Dr. Miller then reshapes the nose or repairs any damage.

When performing a closed rhinoplasty, Dr. Miller makes the incisions inside the nostrils and removes the tip cartilage to lessen the nasal tip’s slope. Since any lifting of bone and cartilage is done through the nostrils, there won’t be any visible scarring.

These techniques create a more natural balance between the nasal bridge, tip, and nostrils to complement the rest of your facial features.

Ski slope nose FAQ

What is the cost of a Ski slope nose rhinoplasty in New York?

Factors that contribute to the cost of ski slope nose rhinoplasty include location, anesthesia, surgeon’s fee, and pre-and post-surgery care. Since ski slope nose rhinoplasty only involves the tip of the nose, it usually costs less than a full rhinoplasty procedure.

The actual cost of surgery is provided during your consultation. To learn more, schedule an appointment with Dr. Miller in Manhattan, New York, or New Orleans, Louisiana.

What causes a Ski slope nose?

The following are the most common causes of a ski slope nose:

  • Genetics
  • Birth defects and gene mutations
  • Injuries
  • Result of a primary rhinoplasty

Can I get a revision rhinoplasty to address a Ski slope nose?

Revision rhinoplasty can fix a nose slope.

A ski slope nose can be a possible result of a poorly executed rhinoplasty. A ski slope nose typically occurs when the surgeon removes too much tissue from the nose’s middle section. Revision rhinoplasty can reshape the nose to achieve a more natural-looking appearance.

What is the recovery time after surgery?

Patients may return to their normal activities within three weeks, but strenuous physical activities should be avoided for 3-6 weeks. Swelling and bruising will subside within 2-3 weeks, and you will begin to see your rhinoplasty results.

It typically takes 6-12 weeks for full results to be visible, but the healing process continues for the entire first year. Dr. Miller and his team will be with you every step of the way.

By blending art and science with the most advanced surgical techniques, Dr. Miller provides thousands of patients with exceptional rhinoplasty results. Considered an expert in rhinoplasty and other facial rejuvenation procedures, he provides the highest level of care with his personalized treatments in NYC and Louisiana.
