Reshape your nose to achieve the appearance you desire
Rhinoplasty, also known as surgery to reshape the nose, is one of the most common and popular plastic surgery procedures today. It can reshape, reduce, or increase your nose, narrow the span of the nostrils, or change the angle between your nose and upper lip for a more symmetrical look.
Dr. Kitto performs rhinoplasty procedures to meet the patient’s aesthetic goals or for reconstructive purposes, such as correcting birth defects or treating breathing problems. The ideal candidates for rhinoplasty are people who are physically fit and psychologically stable.
In the past 20+ years I have had a face lift and various facial rejuvenations and fillers. So I have seen several docs, here and in Northern Virginia. Dr. Kitto is aces!!! She has a great eye and suggests subtle corrections that enhanced my best features and make me look refreshed and well rested. She has the most caring manner of any physician ever. She’s a highly skilled physician as well as a mom and wife. By doing what she does so well, she helps me go out into the world to do what’s mine to do, with my best face forward.
The procedure takes a few hours depending on the complexity of the procedure and starts with incisions made either within the nostrils or around the tissue between the nostrils. Dr. Kitto will then gently lift the soft tissue covering the nose and sculpt the bone and cartilage to the desired shape. The tissues are then repositioned and stitches are placed as needed.
Patients may experience swelling, bruising, bleeding, and headache for a short time after the surgery. Full recovery is expected within a week. Swelling may reappear occasionally in the first year after the procedure, and the results of rhinoplasty will become more apparent when the swelling recedes.
My experience with Dr. Kitto set the bar high for my standards in a doctor. She was the first doctor I felt that took her time in listening to what I wanted while educating me in what to expect
