As one of the most prominent parts of the face, it’s important to have a nose that functions as an asset to your appearance.

Before & After

More About the Rhinoplasty Procedure

When it comes to the face, there’s no question about the fact that the nose is a defining characteristic. Rhinoplasty is a surgery designed to sculpt, shape, and otherwise correct the nose to account for a variety of issues that might present themselves. Patients unhappy with the size or shape of their nose can have nose surgery to change the way it looks, enabling it to better complement their facial structure.

Individuals experiencing problems with things like breathing or sleeping can also have rhinoplasty to correct functional issues caused by nasal deformities, as well.

The rhinoplasty procedure is one that tends to have a dramatic impact on patients’ lives, specifically due to the primary role played by the nose, when it comes to one’s facial appearance. 

The opportunity to change the size and shape of one’s nose in a more aesthetically appealing direction can be an incredibly empowering one, allowing you to finally live your life looking the way you’ve always wanted. As a double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Doshi brings an impressive level of skill and experience to the table, working closely with each one of his patients to bring them the results they’ve been hoping for.

Rhinoplasty FAQ

How old do I have to be in order to undergo rhinoplasty?

With rhinoplasty, it’s important that the patient’s nose is fully formed. This typically happens at around 16 years old for girls, and 18 years old for boys. If the nose is fully grown earlier and Dr. Doshi has approved the surgery, then the patient can move forward with rhinoplasty. Anyone younger than 18 years old will need their parents’ or guardians’ consent for surgery. In addition to age, the patient’s overall health, both mental and physical, will be assessed before deciding if rhinoplasty is safe.

Is rhinoplasty painful?

Thanks to Dr. Doshi’s conservative, cutting edge techniques, most clients don’t find rhinoplasty to cause undue discomfort. On occasion, clients may require nasal packing to control postoperative bleeding, and this can be bothersome. However, any packing is removed within 48 hours. Dr. Doshi will ensure that you receive the proper pain medications after surgery to keep your recovery process on track.

How long will it be before I can resume my normal activities?

Most clients can resume their normal schedules within 3-5 days after surgery, bearing in mind that they will still have some swelling and bruising to contend with and they may have to wear a cast for the first week. Most of the swelling will subside within about 3 weeks. During this time, you should try to refrain from strenuous activities that could enhance the swelling or increase your blood pressure.

What will rhinoplasty scarring be like?

Scarring will depend on whether Dr. Doshi performs open or closed rhinoplasty. With closed rhinoplasty, incisions are made intranasally, or within the nostrils where they are completely hidden from view. Open rhinoplasty may be chosen if the client requires more in depth changes to the bridge, tip or nostrils. In this case, a small incision is made at the base of the nose, where it is virtually unnoticeable

What happens if I am unhappy with my results?

Swelling with rhinoplasty can last up to a year after surgery, so it’s important that you give your nose time to achieve its final shape before judging its appearance. Patience is among the hardest parts of undergoing rhinoplasty, because often the beauty of your new nose isn’t apparent instantly. It can be valuable to join online forums that discuss the recovery process, so you can measure your experience against that of your peers. If you are still unhappy with your nose job after 12 months, you can consider revision rhinoplasty.

What’s the Recovery Process Like?

Recovery from nose surgery usually takes about one to two weeks, during which time your nose will be in a cast to ensure it’s kept stable. You’ll experience some bruising and swelling around your nose and eyes — which is completely normal — and we’ll set up follow-up appointments with you, so we can make sure you’re healing properly.

You’ll want to keep your head elevated for about a week after your surgery, even when you’re asleep, so as to help the bruising and swelling go down, and you’ll want to avoid any strenuous activity for at least three weeks as you heal.
