Rhinoplasty

As the focal point of the face, the nose can significantly influence one’s beauty. However, a disproportionately sized nose can create unbalanced facial features and make a person feel insecure about their appearance. Fortunately, the slightest alterations and restructurings can improve a patient’s silhouette through rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty can provide patients with a balanced and symmetrical nose that will fit most harmoniously with their facial anatomy to maximize their aesthetic structure and beauty. Dr. Jason Diamond’s skills and artistic judgment allow him to transform a nose from bulbous to elegant or from crooked to chiseled and masculine.

Achieved With Rhinoplasty

A nose that is too large, too small, or crooked can affect the beautiful symmetry of the face.

A misshapen nose can occur naturally or as a result of an injury. Dr. Diamond can resculpt the nose by adding or removing cartilage and bone. He can correct wide bridges, nasal humps, drooping tips, and a variety of other malformations.

It is Dr. Diamond’s goal to give each patient a nose that is perfectly tailored to his or her face. He believes that the secret to a natural-looking nose is constructing a style that fits each patient.

Many patients who seek rhinoplasty have breathing abnormalities associated with poor nasal structure.

The most common structural issue is a crooked nasal septum (the cartilage that separates the nasal passageways). Deviated septums can create breathing problems that may lead to snoring and sleep apnea. As a nasal function specialist, Dr. Diamond can correct structural irregularities that affect breathing. Restoring your ability to breathe can tremendously improve your quality of life.

Rhinoplasty can correct more than the bridge and tip of the nose.

Some patients are self-conscious about the size of their nostrils. They can be disproportionate to the size of the nose or appear asymmetrical to each other. During your surgery, Dr. Diamond can improve the appearance of your nostrils to provide a cohesive look to the rest of your nose.

What Does Rhinoplasty Entail?

Rhinoplasty is performed using local or general anesthesia depending on the amount of correction needed. Dr. Diamond creates incisions that provide him with access to the nasal bone and cartilage. He modifies the bone and cartilage by removing material from certain sections and building up others.

  • Closed technique: A closed rhinoplasty is the traditional technique. It involves creating the incisions inside the nasal passageways. Dr. Diamond is skilled in this technique but feels that it limits visibility and may create unnecessary complications.
  • Open technique: Open rhinoplasty is a more modern technique. The incision is located on the base of the nose between the nostrils, on what is known as the columella, which allows Dr. Diamond to pull the skin back. Doing so provides a clearer view and reveals the underlying nasal structures.

After your surgery, a nasal splint will be placed over your nose and packing will be placed inside your nose for support. Bruising and swelling will occur but should resolve after a few weeks. Make sure to you keep your head elevated during the first few days of recovery to help reduce swelling. You will be asked to limit all strenuous physical activities for a few weeks. Your surgical packing will be removed after 4 to 7 days, and the split will be removed after 7 to 10 days.

A myriad of factors can affect the total cost of rhinoplasty, including surgeon fees, location, surgical facility fee, anesthesia fees, medical tests, and prescriptions. Choosing a surgeon should be based on quality, training, and experience—not cost. There is no denying the refined, natural results that come from having your procedure performed by a world-renowned plastic surgeon. A cost estimate can be provided after your in-person consultation with Dr. Diamond.

As with all surgical procedures, you will experience some pain and discomfort following your procedure. Pain medication will be prescribed to help control the pain. A cold compress can also be used to minimize swelling and pain.

Each individual case is, of course, different, and the results of surgery will vary from individual to individual.

Frequently Asked Questions About Rhinoplasty

A: Rhinoplasty should only be performed once all facial growth is completed. This typically occurs at 16 or 17 years of age but may vary from person to person.
A: Dr. Diamond can use computer imaging to visually alter your nose. This will allow you to have an idea of how your nose may look after surgery.
A: Rhinoplasty results are long lasting to permanent. Barring any unforeseen complications, your beautiful nose will be yours forever and continue to age naturally. It is important to maintain a relationship with your surgeon and return for all follow-up visits so that any potential problems can be detected and addressed.
A: For a few unfortunate patients, their rhinoplasty does not yield the desired results. This usually results from a poor aesthetic judgment, old techniques, or a combination of both. Patients who have undergone one or more prior rhinoplasty procedures with less than ideal results may benefit from revision rhinoplasty. Dr. Diamond specializes in revision rhinoplasty and is highly experienced in using a variety of grafting techniques to support a new nose.
A: You should wait at least one year after your initial surgery before undergoing revision rhinoplasty. This allows for all residual swelling to subside. You should also wait for the surrounding scar tissue along the nose to soften. Hard scar tissue makes revision surgery much more difficult.
