Introduction

A rhinoplasty, nose reshaping, or a “nose job” is performed to create a more attractive balance between the nose and your other facial features. As one of the most difficult and complex of all facial plastic surgery procedures, it is vital that it is performed by a talented, experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon.

What is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is a procedure to reshape the nose structure. It is a customized facial surgery to correct nose shape, size, or projection to create a more attractive facial balance, or to resolve restricted breathing. Rhinoplasty could include reshaping cartilage, altering nasal bone structure, altering nostril shape, or treat problems with breathing.

What Can a Rhinoplasty Correct?

Overlarge Nose

An overlarge nose can be completely reshaped, which may include removing cartilage and restructuring nasal bones.

Drooping Nose Tip

The nose tip can be reshaped with a custom nose surgery to remove excess cartilage and skin for a more refined and attractive shape.

Hump on Nose Bridge

A hump on the nose bridge may involve removing excess cartilage and smoothing or reducing the nasal bones.

Nostril Issues – Large, Long, Wide

Your nostril shape and size can be altered with a rhinoplasty, so your nostrils look more attractive, rather than drawing unwanted attention. Reshaping the nostrils is commonly performed during rhinoplasty or could be a single procedure.

Flat Nose Bridge

The nose bridge can be enhanced with autologous cartilage grafts (from your own body) to reduce the risk of complications.

What is the Cost of Rhinoplasty?

The cost of rhinoplasty in Beverly Hills varies, based upon the extent of the changes needed, typically costing in the range of $10,000 to $15,000, as it is a custom surgery requiring high-level surgical skills. It is advised that you do not shop based on price, but instead base your decision on the surgeon’s experience, skills, and artistry. There is no reason to compromise your results on such a delicate facial procedure.

Types of Rhinoplasty

Nose surgery, or rhinoplasty, is performed to resolve cosmetic or functional problems with the nose structure. A revision rhinoplasty is performed to correct errors in a primary nose surgery. Nose fractures, a crooked nose, and overly large nose or breathing problems can all be addressed with a customized nose surgery. Below are the variations of rhinoplasty, all performed with total precision by Dr. Behrooz Torkian.

Types

Cosmetic

The most common reason for a nose job in Beverly Hills is cosmetic. When the nose shape, size, or projection is out of balance with the other features, it draws the eyes of others you meet. Most patients who undergo rhinoplasty do so to achieve a more attractive facial balance.

Functional

Physical abnormalities in nose structure are resolved with functional rhinoplasty surgery. A custom reshaping and repositioning of cartilage, bone, and tissue can restore healthy, free breathing. Functional rhinoplasty fixes a broad variety of issues, including polyps, a deviated septum, overly large turbinates, and many others. During a functional rhinoplasty, Dr. Torkian may be able to simultaneously resolve any cosmetic issues for the patient, creating a beautiful result as well.

Revision

Revision rhinoplasty is performed when a primary nose surgery has left a patient with problems, whether cosmetic or functional. This is typically a complex surgery, as it must address over or under reduction, a pinched tip, excessive scarring, nose collapse, or an overdone appearance.

Ethnic

Ethnic rhinoplasty is simply rhinoplasty performed to enhance the facial features of patients of various ethnic backgrounds, including Asian, Middle Eastern, African-American, Latino, or other. Only a very talented plastic surgeon should perform an ethnic rhinoplasty, as the goal to enhance the natural racial features, rather than create a Westernized nose.

Non-Surgical

The use of dermal fillers can be effective for some patients with minor nose appearance problems. When injected into the nose bridge, a minor hump can be camouflaged. Fillers can treat depressions or subtly lift a drooping tip. The procedure requires maintenance, as dermal fillers are eventually absorbed.

Open Vs. Closed Rhinoplasty in Beverly Hills

Open Rhinoplasty

An open rhinoplasty gives a plastic surgeon greater access to the entire nose structure for accurate, custom reshaping. In this approach, a tiny incision is made in the columella--the strip of skin and cartilage between the nostrils. It is placed at the back of the columella, at the narrowest portion of the undersurface of the nose so when healed, the scar will be virtually unnoticeable. The nasal skin can be folded back during surgery, allowing for greater ease in reshaping bone and cartilage. This surgical approach is often necessary for patients who require more extensive alterations.

Closed Rhinoplasty

The advantage of a closed rhinoplasty is that the incisions are made within the nostrils. This technique may be chosen for patients who require less extensive changes to cartilage and bone. A closed rhinoplasty may be the appropriate approach for patients who require minor nasal bridge modifications. Because this surgery is less invasive, recovery time is typically shorter. The only way to discover whether a closed rhinoplasty will be effective is an in-person evaluation.

Dr. Torkian performs both closed and open techniques, and can advise you regarding which technique will be appropriate to resolve your individual aesthetic issues.

What to Expect

Preparing for Surgery

Prior to rhinoplasty, there are many preparatory actions to ensure the surgery and recovery go as smoothly as possible. This includes:

  • Plan for weeks off work
  • Fill all prescriptions
  • No alcohol
  • No smoking
  • Healthy, nutritious diet

Dr. Torkian’s office will provide you with a comprehensive preparation regimen.

Anesthesia

Rhinoplasty is typically performed under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation combined with local anesthesia. The decision about the type of anesthesia will be discussed with you so you know the reasoning behind the choice, and what to expect.

During

Because you will be under anesthesia during surgery, you will remember little or none of the actual surgery after the administration of anesthesia. The entire procedure, depending upon the changes needed, will require several hours.

After

You will become alert in a recovery area, after which you will be free to return home, driven by another person. Your nose will be bandaged and have a splint to protect it from damage. You will likely feel groggy and possibly slightly disoriented from the anesthetic, although not suffering any pain.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: When Can I Exercise After a Rhinoplasty?

Your physical activities will be restricted for about six weeks, during which time exercise you may only the lower body, with no running, jogging, or bending over, for at least the first week. You can go back to your usual exercise routine when given permission by your plastic surgeon.

Q: Can I Blow My Nose After Undergoing Rhinoplasty?

You will have to avoid blowing your nose at all after surgery. A stuffed-up sensation is normal, as the air passages are swollen. Blowing your nose can endanger the results of surgery, so must be avoided for at least two weeks.

Q: Can I Get a Rhinoplasty When Pregnant?

Unfortunately, no elective cosmetic procedure should be performed on a pregnant woman. If you are told differently by any surgeon, you are in the wrong practice. It is uncertain how such a surgery could affect the unborn child, so you must wait until you have given birth to undergo rhinoplasty.

Q: Will I Be in Pain After Nose Surgery?

Most patients are surprised at how little pain they experience. In the early stages of recovery, you will have prescription pain medication, which should only necessary for two or three days. The most difficult part of recovery is that your air passages will be swollen, and your nose will feel very stuffy. You may experience a headache and your face will feel tender.

Q: Will Insurance Cover Any Part of the Cost of a Nose Job?

If you have functional problems (deviated septum) affecting your health, your insurance may cover some portion of the cost of your procedure. Health insurance does not cover elective cosmetic surgeries.
