All About Rhinoplasties: What You Need to Know Before Your Nose Job

If you’re considering rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job, you likely have a lot of questions about the procedure. Rhinoplasty is a common cosmetic surgery that can enhance the appearance of your nose and improve your breathing function. In this article, we will cover ten important facts about rhinoplasty that you should know before scheduling your surgery.

What is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that reshapes the nose. The surgery can be done for cosmetic reasons, such as improving the appearance of the nose, or for functional reasons, such as correcting breathing problems.

Who is a Good Candidate for Rhinoplasty?

The ideal candidate for rhinoplasty is someone who is in good health and has realistic expectations for the outcome of the surgery. It is also important that the patient has fully developed facial features, typically around age 15 or 16 for girls and age 17 or 18 for boys.

 What Happens During the Rhinoplasty Procedure?

During the rhinoplasty procedure, the surgeon will make incisions inside the nostrils or outside of the nose, depending on the type of correction needed. The surgeon will then reshape the bone and cartilage to achieve the desired result.

What is the Recovery Process Like After Rhinoplasty?

After rhinoplasty, the patient will need to wear a splint on the nose for about a week. They may also experience swelling and bruising around the nose and eyes. Most patients are able to return to work or school after about a week, but it may take several weeks for the swelling to fully subside.

 What Are the Risks and Complications Associated with Rhinoplasty?

As with any surgery, there are risks and complications associated with rhinoplasty. These can include infection, bleeding, and adverse reactions to anesthesia. Discussing these risks with your surgeon before undergoing the procedure is important.

Can Rhinoplasty Be Covered by Insurance?

In some cases, rhinoplasty may be covered by insurance if it is done to correct breathing problems. However, if the surgery is being done for purely cosmetic reasons, it is unlikely to be covered. Here at Jazzi Cosmetic Surgery, we offer several financing options, even one that does not require a credit check & in addition, we also do in-house financing if you are able to fund 20% of the procedure as well! 

How Long Does the Results of Rhinoplasty Last?

The results of rhinoplasty are generally permanent, although minor changes may occur as the nose continues to heal. It is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle and avoid activities that could damage the nose, such as contact sports.

How Do I Choose a Surgeon for Rhinoplasty?

When choosing a surgeon for rhinoplasty, it is essential to do your research and choose someone who is board-certified and has experience performing the procedure. Our very own Dr.Ali here in Philadelphia Pennsylvania at Jazzi Cosmetic Surgery & Aesthetic Medicine is Board Certified and underwent rigorous fellowship training for several years to be able to do the amazing plastic surgery work he does today. You should also schedule a consultation with Dr. Ali to discuss your goals and ensure that you feel comfortable with him.

 How Much Does Rhinoplasty Cost?

The cost of rhinoplasty can vary widely depending on factors such as the surgeon’s experience, the location of the practice, and the extent of the procedure. At our cosmetic surgery practice located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the cost of rhinoplasty typically ranges from $5,000 to $10,000 depending on the complexity. 

What Should I Expect During a Rhinoplasty Consultation?

During a rhinoplasty consultation, Dr.Ali, the surgeon, will examine your nose and discuss your goals for the procedure. He may also take photographs and use before and after photos of other patients who have undergone rhinoplasty. This can give you a better idea of what to expect in terms of results, and help you make an informed decision about whether the procedure is right for you.
