Rhinoplasty (Nose Job)

Rhinoplasty (nose job) is a common surgical procedure that can alter the size and shape of your nose. This can help improve facial harmony, balance and symmetry. When done correctly, rhinoplasty can be extremely natural and undetectable to others.

If you are unhappy with the shape or size of your nose, a consultation with an experienced surgeon is the best place to start. During your appointment, your surgeon will photograph your nose from multiple angles to better understand what can and cannot be achieved through surgery. They will also review your goals for surgery to ensure they are realistic.

Often times, a nose change is paired with other procedures such as a chin augmentation to enhance the look of your profile. In the end, your surgeon will create a customized plan that is unique to you to help achieve your desired results.

The first few weeks after your rhinoplasty are crucial to your recovery, as this is when the majority of swelling occurs. To minimize this, we recommend ice packs (frozen peas work well) to apply on the nose and cheek areas, avoiding salty foods, sleeping with your head elevated on a pillow and minimizing physical contact that can injure the area. It is also important to follow your plastic surgeon’s post-op care routine to speed up healing. nose surgery
