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 with rhinoplasty in Miami.

What can rhinoplasty correct?

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 nose surgery in Miami:

  • 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

Rhinoplasty Techniques

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.

Can I combine my rhinoplasty with other procedures?

Rhinoplasty can be easily combined with many nonsurgical treatments and, for most patients, may also be combined with an additional surgical procedure, such as eyelid surgery. Various factors will determine whether two or more procedures can safely be combined at the same time, including the estimated time required under general anesthesia, the anticipated blood loss, and the patient’s overall health. Combining procedures has the advantage of reducing/combining recovery periods. If a patient’s desired procedure can’t safely be performed in the same surgery session, it can always be done later. A personal consultation will allow us to give an accurate answer for you.

Recovery – a new look, and a new you.

After your Miami Beach 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.

FAQ

What is open vs. closed rhinoplasty?

In a closed rhinoplasty, all incisions are made inside the nose and are not visible after surgery. In an open rhinoplasty, an incision is made at the base of the nose, allowing better access. Both procedures have their uses and benefits.

How old do I have to be for rhinoplasty?

The recommended youngest age for rhinoplasty is usually 13 or 15 years old, at which time the face has sufficiently matured.

Is rhinoplasty covered by insurance?

Cosmetic rhinoplasties are not covered by insurance, but medically necessary ones can be.

How long do I need to wait before a revision rhinoplasty?

Between 4 and 12 months, depending on your skin type, nasal structure, and progress in healing.

What anesthesia is used in rhinoplasty?

General anesthesia is most often used, but in some procedures, local anesthesia, twilight anesthesia, or IV sedation may be options.

Will rhinoplasty affect my breathing?

A well-done rhinoplasty can improve your breathing if needed and should not degrade it. Seek a very qualified and experienced facial plastic surgeon.

How will my nose look after rhinoplasty?

Aesthetically complementary and unique to you. Dr. Afrooz tailors every one of his Miami rhinoplasty surgeries to the patient in front of him and creates a surgical plan he and his patients agree upon well before any surgical work is begun.
