What is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a nose job, is a surgical procedure performed to reshaping the nose. It is a popular cosmetic procedure that can address various concerns, including nasal asymmetry, a prominent hump, a drooping or bulbous tip, or a deviated septum. Rhinoplasty can be performed for aesthetic reasons to enhance the appearance of the nose or for functional reasons to improve breathing and correct structural abnormalities.

The procedure involves making incisions either inside the nostrils or across the columella (the tissue between the nostrils) to access the underlying bone and cartilage. Dr. Chahin then reshapes or removes the excess tissue to achieve the desired nasal shape and proportion. Rhinoplasty can be customized to meet the unique goals and facial features of each individual, resulting in a more balanced and harmonious facial appearance.

Benefits of Rhinoplasty

Improved Nasal Appearance

Rhinoplasty can address various aesthetic concerns, such as reducing a prominent hump, refining the nasal tip, straightening a crooked nose, or improving overall symmetry. It can help enhance facial harmony and boost self-confidence.

Enhanced Facial Balance

A well-proportioned nose can create better facial balance and improve the overall attractiveness of the face. Rhinoplasty can bring harmony to the facial features by reshaping the nose to complement the other facial structures.

Correcting Breathing Problems

In addition to cosmetic improvements, Rhinoplasty can also address functional issues. It can correct a deviated septum, narrow nasal passages, or other structural abnormalities that cause breathing difficulties. This can significantly improve nasal airflow and breathing.

Correction of Trauma

Rhinoplasty can be performed to correct injuries resulting from trauma. It can help restore the normal shape and function of the nose, improving both aesthetics and functionality.

Boost in Self-Confidence

A nose that aligns with your desired appearance can enhance your self-image and confidence. Rhinoplasty can help individuals feel more comfortable and satisfied with their overall facial appearance, leading to improved self-esteem and quality of life.
Procedure Timeline
During this appointment, you will meet with Dr. Chahin to discuss your concerns, goals, and medical history. Dr. Chahin will evaluate your nasal structure, discuss potential options, and explain the procedure in detail.
If you decide to proceed with Rhinoplasty, pre-operative preparations will be made. This may include additional consultations, medical tests, imaging studies, and photographs taken for surgical planning purposes.
On the day of the surgery, you will be placed under anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. Dr. Chahin will make incisions, typically inside the nose or in some cases, on the external base of the nose. The underlying bone and cartilage will be reshaped or augmented as needed. The incisions will then be closed, and a nasal splint or packing may be applied to support the new shape of the nose.
After the surgery, you will be monitored in a recovery area until the anesthesia wears off. You may experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, which can be managed with prescribed medications. It is important to follow post-operative instructions carefully, including taking care of the surgical site, using cold compresses, and avoiding strenuous activities.
Several post-operative appointments will be scheduled to monitor your healing progress. Dr. Chahin will remove any splints or packing, assess your nasal function, and ensure that you are healing properly. The timing of these appointments will vary based on individual recovery and Dr. Chahin 's recommendations.

Why Should You Choose Dr. Chahin for Rhinoplasty


What is the recovery time for Rhinoplasty?

The initial recovery period typically lasts about 3-4 weeks, during which you may experience swelling, bruising, and some discomfort. However, it may take up to a year for the swelling to fully subside and for the final results to become apparent.

Will there be visible scars after Rhinoplasty?
In most cases, the incisions for Rhinoplasty are made inside the nose or in inconspicuous locations. This helps minimize visible scarring. However, some external incisions may be necessary for certain types of corrections, but the scars are usually well-hidden and fade over time.
