Cosmetic Rhinoplasty

If you are considering undergoing nose surgery, choosing the right plastic surgeon is the most critical part of the process. For a successful outcome, both aesthetically and functionally, your surgery should be performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon who is recognized for having exceptional talent and artistry and who uses the most advanced techniques. As your new nose shape will be with you in all the years ahead, choosing the right surgeon is not a minor decision.

BEFORE & AFTER

WHAT IS RHINOPLASTY?

Cosmetic rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure 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, any nose shape issues such as a hump on the bridge or a or scooped profile, 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 a way that addresses your concerns and achieves improved balance with your other features.

AM I A CANDIDATE FOR RHINOPLASTY?

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

TABLE OF CANDIDACY

Large nose

If your nose is overly large, it will draw the attention of others. It can be reshaped to create a more attractive balance, and a far more appealing facial appearance overall.

Nose tip problems

A drooping, bulbous, or pointed nose tip can be surgically altered to create a refined, sophisticated look that dramatically enhances your facial appearance; balanced and attractive

Nose bridge – flat or hump

The nose bridge affects how you look. If you have a hump on the bridge or your nose bridge is exceptionally flat, it can be altered to smooth a hump or add subtle volume that appears natural and balanced.

Nostril reshaping

Wide, overly large, or long nostrils can be altered in shape, so your nostrils are not a distraction that draws attention, but are perfectly balanced in size, shape, and width.

Crooked nose, pinched nose tip, and other problems

If your nose is asymmetrical, was broken and did not heal evenly, or you have any type of unsightly structural issues, they can be repaired with rhinoplasty.

WHAT IS THE COST OF RHINOPLASTY?

Our rhinoplasty is a customized procedure and the cost varies, depending on the corrections needed. For a very pleasing, natural result, the most important issue is choosing the right plastic surgeon—far above cost. For an elegant, refined look in balance with your features, you can expect the procedure to cost in the range of $10,000 to $15,000. Never shop price when it comes to rhinoplasty, as a failure will require a second surgery.

TYPES OF RHINOPLASTY

Nose reshaping is performed to resolve the full range of aesthetic or functional nose issues. The procedure is planned around your specific problems, and various techniques may be needed to accomplish your vision, whether it is to resolve a hump on the bridge, a hanging nose tip, an overlarge nose, or a nose that is too narrow, flat, or pinched in appearance.

Cosmetic Nose Surgery

Most rhinoplasty procedures are performed for cosmetic reasons. As an elective surgery, it reshapes the nose structure so it is in balance with and enhances your other features.

Functional Nose Surgery

Some people have functional problems with nose structure, affecting healthy breathing. Whether due to trauma, nose polyps, a deviated septum, or a genetic flaw, these problems can be surgically repaired with functional nose surgery and may be performed along with cosmetic alterations.

Revision Nose Surgery

A nose surgery that has failed must be repaired. Whether the surgery left you with an uneven result, too little change, too much change, or if the nose structure collapsed due to poor technique, a revision rhinoplasty can be performed.

Ethnic Rhinoplasty

Certain ethnic traits are passed on through genetics but may not be appreciated. An ethnic rhinoplasty, when performed with skill, will not “westernize” your nose, but will bring greater balance and harmony to your features, while honoring your background.

Non-surgical Rhinoplasty

Some minor nose shape issues can be resolved without surgery. A non-surgical rhinoplasty is performed with dermal fillers carefully injected to treat issues such as a minor hump on the bridge, a nose tip that is uneven or appears pinched, or to subtly raise the nose tip.

THE SURGICAL APPROACH

Two different approaches can be used in nose surgery, open or closed.

Open Rhinoplasty

(external rhinoplasty)
The most common way to perform alterations to the nose structure is to access the nose structure through an incision made at the base of the columella, the strip of tissue between your nostrils. This approach allows your facial plastic surgeon full access to the structure so that alterations can be made with precision. The scar is virtually invisible once healed.

Closed Rhinoplasty

(endonasal rhinoplasty)

Some minor changes to nose structure can be made through incisions placed within the nostrils, with the advantage of invisible scars. This approach is only appropriate for minor nose shape alterations.

RECOVERY FROM RHINOPLASTY

The recovery after our nose job requires some planning, as you will need to take about two weeks off work or your other usual activities. It is most often an outpatient procedure, although this will depend on the complexity of the case. It is normal to experience some swelling, bruising, nasal congestion, and in some cases, minor pain or discomfort in the first few days after surgery. These side effects diminish as the days pass 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 two to three weeks.
