What Is a Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty (commonly called a nose job) 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. Options include either an open rhinoplasty or closed rhinoplasty surgeries
  • Revision Rhinoplasty: Fixes errors or imperfections of a previous rhinoplasty procedure. Revision nose surgery requires an even more precise procedure than the first time around and may necessitate cartilage grafting.
  • Septoplasty: Addresses a deviated septum (interior of the nose) to promote better nasal breathing.
  • Nose Job for Men: Adapts techniques to maintain and enhance masculine facial features.
  • Non-Surgical Nose Job:  A non-invasive, temporary alternative that uses dermal fillers to alter the nose’s shape


  • 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 most cases, the results are permanent, and patients can enjoy their new nose for a lifetime. Still, watch out for nose injuries.
  • Perfect for combination: Nose jobs are 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 nose job will require minimal changes, crafting refined results through precision and minimal tissue changes. The idea is for everyone who sees you to be struck by your appearance but to not notice what has changed.

Am I a Good Candidate?

Nose surgery 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 facial plastic surgeon.

During your consultation, Dr. Dhir will go over your medical history and expectations to match you with the right procedure choice. He conducts a full exam of your nasal structures to build a personalized approach to delivering the nose you have always wanted. Plastic surgery is about taking control over your appearance, and the consultation is the ideal time to start doing this.

Personalized Ethnic Rhinoplasty

A nose job is not about changing you to fit someone else’s mold of beauty. Rather, the goal is to elevate your natural appearance, maintaining a balanced, natural look that allows your features to shine. This is particularly true with Dr. Dhir’s approach to teenage rhinoplasty and ethnic. He works to create adjustments to your nose’s size and shape that build rather than take away from the unique features tied to your ethnicity and identity. Dr. Dhir’s specialty for ethnic nose surgery includes:

Teenage Rhinoplasty

The same applies for teenage nose job. He must take into account how the facial structures can continue to change, creating adjustments that improve facial balance. Teenage nose job usually is best for patients with significant nasal shape deviation, abnormalities, nasal breathing difficulty, or injury. In addition, the teenage patient must be at a maturity level to handle a cosmetic change.

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: Building an Optimal Foundation

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.
Part of this involves going through previous before-and-after photos and inspiration photos. This allows you to see what can be accomplished and better visualize what results you want. You choose the basic feel of your nose including the size or shape you want, the slope of the nose, the size of your nostrils. Each element is under your control. As one of the leading surgeons specializing in nose surgery, Dr. Dhir will adapt your procedure accordingly.

Preparing: Setting Yourself Up for Success

Preparing for a nose job 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)
  • Obtain all required bloodwork
  • 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 Big day

The procedure starts with administering anesthesia while you listen to your favorite song; ultimately, so that you will feel no pain or discomfort 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 every one of his nose jobs only once fully satisfied with the results. The total duration is typically about 4-6 hours for most patients.


A Breakdown of the Recovery & Results Timeline

Once the anesthesia wears off, patients can return home with their driver on the same day as the surgery. We recommend about 7-14 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. For the first week, you will need to keep your cast on your nose and avoid touching it.

Once the initial swelling goes down and the cast is removed, 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 with most healing at the six week mark. Factors such as the amount of bone shaved away, amount of tip work, inherent skin thickness, amount of structural repositioning, and personal healing rate can all impact the timeline.

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! Discover the advantage of facial harmony and balance that bring out your full beauty.

Will a Nose Job Leave a Scar?

For closed nose job, all incisions are made inside the nostril, so there is no visible scarring. For open techniques, any incisions are still made in areas where they will have little to no visibility. Whenever possible, Dr. Dhir prefers the technique that will garner the best result possible. However, the open technique is most commonly utilized for complex nasal tip work and revision cases. Dr. Dhir will discuss which technique will be utilized at the time of consultation.
