What is rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty, which is commonly called a “nose job” or nose surgery, is a cosmetic procedure that can create a more aesthetically pleasing nose shape, size, and projection. It can also correct breathing difficulties. Most patients choose to have a rhinoplasty to improve the symmetry of the nose or to correct imperfections on the bridge or tip of the nose.
Due to the complexity of the nasal anatomy, technical demands of the procedure, and the artistry that is required, rhinoplasty is known to be one of the most challenging of all facial plastic surgery procedures. Dr. Paul N. Afrooz is proud to offer his patients the expertise required to deliver natural-looking, beautifully balanced results.
Should I get my nose fixed?
If you have lived your life disliking the look of your nose, imagine the difference in your quality of life when your nose shape is perfect for your face! It is incredible to see the difference in overall facial appearance when the size, shape, and projection of the nose structure is balanced with your features – it is a significant enhancement. If you have any of the following nose shape issues, you are likely a good candidate for rhinoplasty:
- Large nose tip
- Hanging nose tip
- Bulbous nose tip
- Crooked nose
- Overly wide nose bridge
- A hump on the nose bridge
- Flatter nose bridge
- Wide, excessively large, or elongated nostrils
- Asymmetrical nose
Before & AfterView All
What is the procedure?
Rhinoplasties are typically performed using one of two techniques:
Open rhinoplasty: An incision is made at the base of the columella, the thin strip of tissue separating your nostrils. This approach allows for a comprehensive reshaping of the nose structures.
Closed rhinoplasty: The incisions are placed within the nostrils, an appropriate surgical approach for minor nose shape corrections.
The surgical technique for your custom surgery will reflect the shape of your nose, and the enhancements needed. Nose surgery may involve repositioning the nasal bones or altering cartilage shape to reduce or reshape the appearance of the nose. If you are experiencing trouble with breathing, Dr. Afrooz may correct the nasal septum or the turbinates within the nasal cavity to improve airflow and restore healthy breathing.
Recovery – a new look, and a new you.
After a rhinoplasty, you can expect a recovery period of one to two weeks, depending on the extent of your surgery. During this time, we recommend that patients get as much rest as possible and minimize any physical activity. The recovery doesn’t involve significant pain or discomfort, but adequate rest will ensure faster healing and a great result. You may experience swelling for a number of weeks after treatment, and residual swelling can persist for several months. After approximately one year, all residual swelling (usually only visible to you) should disappear, and you can enjoy the full results of your surgery.
What is the cost of rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty for improved breathing function may be covered by insurance; however, if you are undergoing surgery to enhance your appearance, insurance won’t cover it. To make payment easy, we accept most major credit cards and financing through CareCredit. Dr. Paul N. Afrooz is widely regarded as being among the most exceptional nose surgeons in the Miami region, and your results are well worth the investment. You want your nose surgery performed right – the first time.
