What Is Cosmetic Rhinoplasty?

Cosmetic rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that is performed to enhance the aesthetic appearance and proportions of the nose. Also known as a “nose job” or nose surgery, it addresses concerns such as pinched or flared nostrils, an excessively low or high nose bridge, overly large nasal tips, dorsal contour deformities such as hump or scooped profiles, or any nasal asymmetry that disrupts the overall harmony of the face.

This procedure gives you a more refined and attractive nose by reshaping or resizing certain areas in such a way that addresses your concerns while achieving improved symmetry with the rest of the face.

Reasons To Undergo Cosmetic Rhinoplasty

The nose is the focal point of the face, which is why even minor enhancements can have a profound impact on facial aesthetics. Patients typically undergo cosmetic rhinoplasty to make the nose more visually appealing, to achieve a more pleasing facial profile, and for increased facial harmony.

It can help improve the following:

  1. Disproportionate nasal structure
  2. Nasal bridge that is too low or too high
  3. Nasal tip that is too small or too large
  4. Nostrils that are too big or too small
  5. Other nasal asymmetries or deformities

What Are The Benefits Of Cosmetic Rhinoplasty Surgery?

For most patients, the main benefit of undergoing rhinoplasty is to increase their attractiveness. But as with any facial surgery, it is important to consider the measurements and proportions of the face to achieve the ideal results.

Dr. Jacob Sedgh is a double-board certified facial plastic surgeon who understands the importance of symmetry in the pursuit of facial aesthetics, which is why he employs a thorough analysis of the patient’s facial structure and proportions in order to make the optimal enhancements.

Cosmetic rhinoplasty can give you:

  1. Ideal nasal structure and proportions relative to your facial features
  2. Improved appearance of nasal bridge, tip and nostrils
  3. Better facial symmetry and harmony
  4. Increased self-confidence

During your first consultation, Dr. Sedgh will conduct an interview to learn more about you and your surgery goals. From there, he will perform a thorough assessment of your facial structure and medical history as it relates to the desired enhancements.

Taking your answers and his assessment into account, Dr. Sedgh will then give you his recommendations for the best surgical plan to achieve the most ideal and natural-looking outcome.

Each consultation will consist of:

  1. An interview on medical history and relevant lifestyle factors
  2. A thorough physical examination
  3. Discussion on expectations and recommendations
  4. Explanation of the procedure

International or out-of-town patients also have the option of scheduling consultations via video conferencing for added convenience. Travel assistance and other services, including accommodation, transportation, concierge services, and aftercare assistance, may also be arranged for you by Dr. Sedgh’s office to help facilitate an optimal surgical experience in one of the most state-of-the-art facilities in Beverly Hills.

Types Of Cosmetic Rhinoplasty

There are various types of cosmetic rhinoplasty procedures, and every patient has different goals. For these reasons, each procedure will be thoroughly individualized based on the patient’s needs.

As a rhinoplasty specialist with nearly a decade of experience in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, Dr. Sedgh has extensive expertise in all types of nose reshaping and reconstruction techniques. He uses both the closed approach and the open approach, but chooses the most appropriate one based on the patient’s goals and what makes sense for the complexity of the surgery.

Closed Approach (Endonasal Rhinoplasty)

This approach involves making precise incisions inside the nostrils to reshape the nose. It is a common technique for primary rhinoplasty procedures that require simple or minimal changes. Since there are no visible incisions on the outer part of the nose, the advantage with this approach is that there will be no external scarring.

Open Approach (External Rhinoplasty)

With the open approach, an incision is made along the partition between the nostrils, also known as the columella. The skin is then carefully folded upward to expose the nasal framework, providing optimum visibility throughout the procedure. This approach is preferred for more complex enhancements and reconstructions, as it provides a better visual of the entire nasal structure and ensures maximum precision.

Dr. Sedgh employs an artful and meticulous approach to achieve your desired results while still maintaining the structural integrity of the nose. Each surgery is performed with the utmost care to ensure that the outcome is as natural as possible, with little to no visible scarring.

Cosmetic Rhinoplasty Procedure Recovery

Cosmetic rhinoplasty is normally an outpatient procedure, although this will depend on the complexity of the case.

Patients may experience some swelling, bruising, nasal congestion, and in some cases, minor pain or discomfort immediately after the surgery. However, such side effects are to be expected as you go through the healing process and can be managed effectively with prescribed medications and proper post-op care.

If your initial recovery goes well, you should be able to return to your normal activities within 2 to 3 weeks.

Dr. Sedgh is dedicated to providing attentive and personalized care to all his patients, which is why he makes himself available via phone or video conferencing, or even through a quick clinic visit, throughout the entire postoperative period. You can also expect regularly scheduled follow-up appointments throughout the year to enable the doctor to personally and continuously assess your healing and recovery.
