Rhinoplasty Q&A

What is rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is a popular plastic surgery procedure that alters the size or shape of your nose. It’s one of the few surgical procedures that won’t leave visible incision lines, as most incisions are made within your nostrils, not from the outside.

Often called a nose job, rhinoplasty can enhance facial symmetry and help you attain optimal proportion among facial features. In some cases, the procedure can also improve your breathing function. 

Your nose contains bone, cartilage, and skin tissues, as well as nerves and blood vessels. Rhinoplasty focuses on changing the size or arrangement of bone, skin, and cartilage to refine the contouring of your nose. 

Why choose to pursue rhinoplasty?

There are many reasons to consider rhinoplasty, but the decision to pursue any form of cosmetic surgery should always be personal, not a choice guided by coercion or in an effort to meet the aesthetic ideals of anyone other than yourself. 

Some of the reasons to consider rhinoplasty include a desire to:

  • Correct nasal asymmetry
  • Achieve proportion with the rest of your features
  • Reduce the size of your nose
  • Smooth visible bumps or depressions on the bridge 
  • Address an enlarged, drooping, or bulbous nasal tip
  • Alter the shape or size of your nostrils
  • Correct a deviated septum

Dr. Moradzadeh assesses your nose prior to creating a surgical plan and explains what type of modifications can be made. 

Rhinoplasty can even help improve the shape and function on your nose without compromising the characteristics that you want to retain. Dr. Moradzadeh is also skilled in revision surgery and can correct a previous nose job. There are also non-surgical options that use dermal fillers to refine nose contouring. 

What happens during rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty uses general or local anesthesia. Once you’re resting comfortably, Dr. Moradzadeh begins by creating small incisions to access the bone and cartilage of your nose. 

He removes or adds tissue as needed to create an optimal shape. If you need more volume, he can graft tissue from another part of your body and use it to “build up” your new nose.  

Once he’s happy with the results, Dr. Moradzadeh closes the incisions with tiny sutures. You move to a recovery room and remain closely monitored as the effects of the anesthesia wear off.
