Los Angeles Nasal Bone AnatomyRhinoplasty (Commonly called a nose job) is the most intricate cosmetic surgery performed today. Rhinoplasty, nose job surgery improves the appearance and proportion of your nose, enhancing facial harmony and self confidence. Surgery of the nose may also correct impaired breathing caused by structural abnormalities in the nose.

Rhinoplasty (Nose job) can reduce or increase the size of your nose, change the shape of the tip or the bridge, narrow the span of the nostrils, or change the angle between your nose and your upper lip. It may also correct a birth defect or injury and help relieve some breathing problems. The best candidates for Rhinoplasty (Nose job) are people who are looking for improvement in the way they look, are physically healthy, psychologically stable, and have realistic expectations.

Secondary/Revision Rhinoplasty

Dr. Tavoussi recently presented his novel technique in rhinoplasty in the prestigious Rhinoplasty Society meeting in Washington, D.C. Dr. Tavoussi has for many years invented a technique to address wide nasal base which is seen in a number patients from various ethnic backgrounds. This technique allows the nostrils to be repositioned in such a way to make the nose look its ideal shape without any visible scarring that is seen with other techniques, in the past.

This special technique creates a wound that heals naturally without a scar. This scarless rhinoplasty is unique yet very simple. Simple, since it uses one’s natural healing process to heal wounds without scars. This technique can also be used in secondary rhinoplasty, also known as revision rhinoplasty, where visible scars can be corrected and converted into an invisible ones.

The Cost of a Nose Job (Rhinoplasty)

The cost of Rhinoplasty (nose job) varies from patient to patient and it depends on many factors. Rhinoplasty may be performed by different techniques, by rhinoplasty surgeons of different experience and skill levels. Once you have had a rhinoplasty consultation you can get an estimate of the cost of rhinoplasty for you. Like most types of plastic surgery, rhinoplasty surgery involves surgery related and facility fees. Usually additionally to the cost of your rhinoplasty you will need to find out the cost of anesthesia or anesthesiologist fee; the cost of the facility or operating room and any other cost associated with your rhinoplasty surgery such as: medication, blood work, or any other procedure related cost.

Ask your rhinoplasty surgeon about all the costs involved in your rhinoplasty surgery. Again; rhinoplasty costs can vary greatly from surgeon to surgeon. Prospective rhinoplasty patients may decide not to go through with surgery because they believe they can’t afford the cost of the nose job procedure. However, a nose job can be affordable, and there are several cosmetic surgery financing options available to cover the cost of the procedure. It is always best to speak directly with your plastic surgeon’s office staff to find out the cost of rhinoplasty. Call me Now! Also; usually if a patient is going to have more than one procedure performed at once, the surgeon is highly likely to reduce some of the fees and give the patient a discount.

It is also recommended in some cases that a patient combines several procedures at the same time if they are a good candidate. This will allow the patient to pay only once for any anesthesia or operating room costs and it also allows the patient to recover at the same time from all the procedures performed.

About the Rhinoplasty Procedure

Plastic surgery of the nose begins when the rhinoplasty surgeon makes an incision either inside the nose or across the skin that separates the nostrils (this skin is called the columella). The plastic surgeon then stitches the skin back into place to complete the  nose surgery. Rhinoplasty surgery generally lasts one to two hours and is usually an outpatient procedure.

Risks and Benefits of Nose job Surgery (Rhinoplasty)

Rhinoplasty (nose job) carries the same risks as any other surgery. Bleeding, infection, and reactions to medications or anesthesia are possible side effects of rhinoplasty surgery. In addition, there are several risks that are unique to plastic surgery of the nose. These include burst blood vessels that can lead to red spots and small scars on the underside of the nose. You might also require a revisionary second procedure at some point in the future to remove or correct tissue.

Recovery after Rhinoplasty Surgery

Because of the slow healing process, you might not see the final results of your rhinoplasty surgery for up to a year. Following your nose job procedure, you can expect to be somewhat sore. Beginning on the first day and continuing for several days after, you can expect swelling and bruising to increase — black eyes are not unusual during rhinoplasty recovery. Applying cold compresses around, but not directly to, the nose will help reduce swelling. Furthermore, most patients report that the pain is not as bad as the facial appearance may make it seem.
