Rhinoplasty

The nose is the centerpiece of one’s facial features, but concerns about its appearance can detract from confidence and even quality of life. At Dr. Dhir’s practice, we believe in allowing every patient to fully realize their own personal aesthetic. Using modern, effective surgical techniques for a rhinoplasty in Beverly Hills, we can make this mission a reality. You deserve to look and feel your best, and our practice is here to ensure that you do. With a full range of cosmetic procedures, our board-certified cosmetic surgeon aims to help you discover your best self.

What Is a Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic procedure dedicated to addressing concerns about the appearance of the nose. This could be the shape, size, protrusion, angle, symmetry, and more. The core idea is that your surgeon can enact subtle and precise changes to bring your nose’s appearance into alignment with your natural features and aesthetic preferences. Some key concerns rhinoplasty can improve include:

  • Nasal asymmetry
  • Nostril concerns (wide, upturned, large)
  • Nose proportion to the rest of the face
  • Profile of the nose
  • Uneven or bumpy bridge
  • Hooked or drooping nasal tip
  • Nasal width
  • Breathing issues caused by deviated septum

Types of Rhinoplasty

  • Rhinoplasty: Addresses concerns about the appearance of the nose.
  • Revision Rhinoplasty: Fixes errors or imperfections of a previous rhinoplasty procedure.
  • Septoplasty: Addresses a deviated septum (interior of the nose) to promote better nasal breathing.
  • Rhinoplasty for Men: Adapts techniques to maintain and enhance masculine facial features.
  • Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty: A non-invasive, temporary alternative that uses dermal fillers to alter the nose’s shape.

Benefits of a Rhinoplasty

  • Personalized results: The key to rhinoplasty is an adaptive technique that takes the entire facial structure into consideration. Every one of our procedures is built from the ground up according to your needs.
  • Long-lasting improvements: In many cases, the results of a rhinoplasty are permanent, and patients can enjoy their new nose for a lifetime.
  • Perfect for combination: Rhinoplasty is readily combined with other cosmetic procedures for further aesthetic enhancement, such as with a facelift, neck lift, and more.
  • Less is more: A natural-looking rhinoplasty will require minimal changes, crafting refined results through precision and minimal tissue changes. 

Am I a Good Candidate for a Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty can be a great solution for almost any patient who has cosmetic concerns about their nose. Though this is still a full procedure, it is less intense than body surgeries, allowing a wider range of potential candidates. A good candidate will still need to match a few features, though. Namely, you will get the most out of rhinoplasty if you are in good health, have healthy expectations, and are ready for open communication with your surgeon.

Overview of the Procedure Process

We work closely with every patient to ensure they are fully informed about every aspect of their procedure. Since we personalized each surgery, the exact elements of your plan can differ, but below is a general outline.
 

Consulting

Successful surgery starts with a successful consultation. During this meeting, you can discuss your goals, needs, and hopes for the procedure. On Dr. Dhir’s end, he will answer all your questions and provide comprehensive information about your surgical options. Working together, you can build your tailored surgery plan.
 

Preparing

Preparing for a rhinoplasty is straightforward, but it does require a few steps:

  • Do not eat or drink immediately before the procedure
  • Stop taking certain medications (such as blood thinners)
  • Stop use of nicotine products and some herbal supplements
  • Arrange your home for a comfortable recovery
  • Make plans for someone to drive you home from surgery

 

The Surgery

The procedure starts with administering anesthesia so you will feel no pain during surgery. Dr. Dhir then uses the best surgical approach for your situation to begin altering the structure of the nose. Each step uses the minimum necessary structural change, creating a transformative result while avoiding unneeded tissue damage. He then closes all incisions and completes the procedure once fully satisfied with the results. The total duration is typically about 4 hours.

 

Recovery & Results

Once the anesthesia wears off, patients can return home with their loved one or driver on the same day as the surgery. We recommend about 7-10 days of downtime for the initial recovery. This period will involve taking time away from work or strenuous activities and following all your post-procedure care instructions. Rest and aftercare are crucial to seeing quicker healing and optimal long-term results. While bruising, swelling, and discomfort are normal, these can be managed quite well with even over-the-counter medications.  The cast and sutures are removed at 6 days after surgery.

Once the initial swelling goes down, patients can begin to see their new nose take shape. While you can start to enjoy your results within a matter of days, it can take several months for the results to fully settle. Still, you can expect improvements with each passing day and gradually enjoy your new nose more and more. The wait is worth it, as results can last for a lifetime!  Dr. Dhir will meet with you at 6 weeks, 6 months and 1 year to walk you through the journey.
