Rhinoplasty, also referred to as a nose job or nose reshaping, is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures because of how significant a role your nose plays in your overall appearance. A nose that is too large, too small, or too wide, can throw off the balance of your facial features
You shouldn’t have to be embarrassed by the way your nose looks. At the Cosmetic Surgical Center of Dallas, Dr. Rai can sculpt a nose that satisfies your aesthetic needs. He can help you design a nose that brings balance to your facial proportions and complements your natural features in order to give you the confidence you need to face the world.
Why the Appearance of Your Nose Is Important
One of the most important aspects to consider when thinking about your appearance is balance. A beautiful face has balanced facial proportions, and its features complement one another to create a single beautiful and harmonious image. Your nose is the most prominent feature on your face. It rests at the center of your face, and its appearance can heavily influence the way your other facial features appear.
Because of its prominence, the size, shape, and appearance of your nose can either complement your appearance or detract from your natural beauty and your comfort with your appearance.
Designing Your Look
The first and most important step in getting your new look is meeting with Dr. Rai in our Dallas plastic surgery office for an initial consultation. During this time, Dr. Rai will examine your nose and discuss your reasons for pursuing a rhinoplasty. You will also be able to establish the goals for your cosmetic nose surgery so that Dr. Rai has an in-depth understanding of your desired aesthetic results. He will use this understanding to help formulate the surgical plan for your procedure. Dr. Rai will also listen to and address any concerns you may have about the procedure so that you feel comfortable and properly prepared when your surgery date comes.
It is important to remember to have realistic expectations regarding your appearance after your rhinoplasty procedure. Dr. Rai will discuss the results you can expect from the procedure and will explain why certain options are more beneficial than others.
Common Aesthetic Issues Rhinoplasty Can Correct
There are multiple areas of the nose that can be corrected through rhinoplasty, as well as several common aesthetic issues that frequently drive people to undergo rhinoplasty. These issues include:
- Bulbous nasal tip
- Hooked nasal tip
- Under-projected nasal tip
- Dorsal hump
- Asymmetrical nostrils
- Wide nasal bridge
- Nasal asymmetry
- Oversized nose
- Deviated septum
Dr. Rai will make a detailed plan for your rhinoplasty operation and review all of the steps for your procedure and recovery with you so that you feel comfortable with the process and fully prepared for your recovery.
The Rhinoplasty Procedure
In a preoperative meeting, your final questions will be answered, photographs of your nose are taken, and you will be given prescriptions for any medications you will need during recovery, as well as a list of post-surgical instructions.
Each rhinoplasty procedure is unique, as it is based on the desired aesthetic results of the patient and the area of the nose being worked on. Rhinoplasty also requires an immense amount of technical skill from the surgeon. In order to alter the shape of the nose, Dr. Rai must carefully manipulate and reshape the structures of the nose. Extreme care and precision must be used because the nasal structure could become destabilized, which would put your results at risk.
Your rhinoplasty procedure will take about 60-90 minutes based upon the extent of the work required.
Your rhinoplasty procedure will take about 60-90 minutes based upon the extent of the work required. You will be able to return home after an additional 60-90 minutes of recovery. We recommend that you have someone drive you home to ensure your safety, so make sure to notify a friend or family member prior to the day of your procedure. You will have a splint molded onto your nose for support and protection and padding under your nose to absorb drainage, which usually stops within 24 hours.
Dr. Rai will call you on the evening of your surgery to check in and see if you have any questions.
Your splint will be removed 5-7 days after surgery during a follow-up visit with Dr. Rai. You should expect some swelling and bruising of the nose and cheeks at this point. This should subside after a few weeks
You will begin to see results within the first few weeks, but the full results of your procedure will not yet be visible. Due to the intensity of the procedure, there will still be some internal swelling that prevents the new shape of your nose from fully appearing. It takes 12-18 months to achieve the final outcome as swelling gradually settles and the skin of your nose adapts to the change in structure. Although this may seem like a long time, the results from your rhinoplasty are permanent. Patients who have been unhappy with the appearance of their nose for years will gladly wait an additional year to have a nose that they feel comfortable and happy with.
If you experience any issues, complications, or anything concerning at any point during your recovery, contact Dr. Rai immediately to schedule a visit. He will closely examine the issue, diagnose the problem, and recommend the appropriate course of action.
Is Rhinoplasty My Only Option?
Some patients may not be fully comfortable with undergoing surgery and may look for alternative options to rhinoplasty. Non-surgical rhinoplasty, also referred to as a liquid nose job, uses dermal fillers to augment the nose. However, Liquid rhinoplasty using nose fillers does not offer permanent results and can lead to certain complications.
Cost of Rhinoplasty
The cost of rhinoplasty varies based on multiple factors like the amount of work required to achieve the patient’s desired results. Cosmetic Surgical Center offers financing options for rhinoplasty.
“I am more than satisfied”
I had gone to many cosmetic consultations in reference to my nose but I continued to put off the surgery for one excuse or another. Then I came across Dr Rai. This was the best choice for me, the staff was friendly and Dr Rai (a sweet human being) was very patient and informative with the surgical information. Dr Rai made me feel comfortable, so I could explain my physical issues without embarrassment. Some of my issues Dr Rai stated, I really would not need to bother about. Not many doctors would tell you that you do not need nose surgery on certain areas. Well, I had my surgery and I am more than satisfied. The only regret I have is I did not know Dr Rai sooner. Thanks guys for everything.
“No one makes fun of my big nose anymore”
Wahoo! I love it. Thank you. No one makes fun of my big nose anymore, it fits my face. All my friends want nose jobs too now. Of course I referred you guys. My advice to others is that they should go for it because it isn’t painful or lengthy, the results are great and Dr Rai is the best Plastic Surgeon out there.
“I love my nose it looks so natural and fits my face perfectly”
Amazing! I have wanted to fix my nose for years. I am Spanish, Native American, and French so my nose to say the least was not a favorite part of my body. I researched many doctors in DFW and found Dr. Rai in Dallas Magazine. My wait time to see him was relatively short and the added bonus was the consultation was free. My welcome to his office was very warm. Dr. Rai was very professional and listened to all my concerns from my first appointment to my follow-ups. His bedside manner is excellent. Not only Dr. Rai but also his entire staff is simply amazing. They make you feel at home and check up with you every day after your surgery until your follow-up. After your follow up, they check in every week just to make sure you are doing ok and make sure you do not have any concerns. The surgery is done in house so it made me feel very safe and comfortable. I was the only one having surgery that day so I knew he was only concentrating on me that day. The procedure was painless it was a pleasant surprise. I love my nose it looks so natural and fits my face perfectly. Dr. Rai is not only a miracle worker but also a great and kind spirit. His nurses and office managers are also angels they accommodated me in anything I needed. I felt like VIP in his office every time I visited. I could never thank Dr. Rai and his staff enough. I would highly recommend Dr. Rai for rhinoplasty.
