Whether your concerns with your nose stem from genetics, birth defects, injury, or simply the aging process, rhinoplasty can help restore an attractive, inviting look, promoting balance and harmony among the facial features. Nose surgery can correct imperfections in the nasal bridge, tip, and nostrils while amending the internal airways to improve your breathing. 

Our team of trusted, experienced rhinoplasty surgeons is excited to present you with your customized treatment plan for revitalizing your appearance and jumpstarting your self-confidence.

What is Rhinoplasty?

When the nose draws undue attention to itself, it can distract the gaze from the smile and the eyes, reducing the overall aesthetics of the face. Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure to help balance the nose among the other features, so the patient’s true beauty shines through. The surgery can combat a wide range of cosmetic imperfections while simultaneously optimizing your breathing by clearing the nasal passageways.

What can rhinoplasty address?

  • A nose that is too large for one’s face
  • Crooked nose
  • Injured nose
  • Enlarged dorsal hump
  • A nose that is too flat
  • An underprojected tip
  • An overprojected tip
  • A bulbous tip
  • Nostrils that are too wide
  • A nose that is too long or too short
  • Breathing problems
  • A deviated septum
  • Nasal asymmetry

How is rhinoplasty performed?

Your surgical plan will take into account your unique nasal anatomy, your aesthetic goals, your age and overall health, the functionality of your nose, and whether you plan to combine your nose surgery with other procedures such as chin augmentation or injectables. The right approach for you will be discussed in detail during your consultation. 

Incisions will be made either at the base of the nose across the columella or within the nostrils. The first approach is known as open rhinoplasty. This is ideal when more complex changes are required. The surgeon can lift up the skin and refine the bone and cartilage with increased precision and flexibility. The closed technique with the incisions inside the nostrils can also produce excellent results for the right patients. After surgery, a splint is placed to help the nose maintain its new shape as it heals. The entire procedure typically takes around 2 hours to complete.

Am I a candidate for rhinoplasty?

While some minor cosmetic changes can be achieved with a non-surgical nose job using dermal fillers, most clients will need a more in-depth surgical procedure that yields dramatic and long-lasting results. Rhinoplasty can be performed on patients of all ages, provided their nose has finished growing (for teens) and that they are in good mental and physical health. Good candidates are non-smokers who are free from any uncontrolled medical problems that might interfere with their treatment. They have a realistic, positive outlook towards their surgery based on a private consultation and physical evaluation with our team.

What will my rhinoplasty recovery be like?

Rhinoplasty is performed under anesthesia, so you will need a friend or family member to drive you home and look after you during the first stages of your recovery. Your nose will be packed with gauze, and you’ll have a splint in place for the first week. Pain medications will be provided to help ease any discomfort.

You will see swelling and bruising around the eyes, nose, and cheeks. These symptoms will be at their worst during the first few days, and then they will gradually begin to subside. You should keep your head elevated to minimize your swelling and promote proper blood flow.

Clients can typically return to work within a few weeks, provided their job is not physically taxing or strenuous. Intense workouts, heavy lifting, and aerobic exercise should be postponed for 3-6 weeks.
