What to Expect From Your Consultation
Dr. Aboolian will sit with you and help to understand the goals of your rhinoplasty. Also known colloquially as a "nose job," many people opt for this surgery for medical reasons, such as to breathe better or to fix a broken nose, or for some, it might be more aesthetic. Whatever the reason may be, Beverly Hills rhinoplasty surgeon, Dr. Aboolian, will discuss with you the correct approach based on what needs to be accomplished.
Before performing a rhinoplasty, Dr. Aboolian will also consider your facial characteristics:
- Skin type
- Skin thickness
By putting all of this information together, Dr. Aboolian will be able to understand your aesthetic or functionality goals with your nose job. From there, he will discuss the nature of the surgery and what you can expect during and after the procedure.*
What Can You Expect From a Rhinoplasty Procedure?
Rhinoplasty is a 1- to 3-hour surgery that is usually performed under local anesthesia and intravenous sedation. Rhinoplasty may be done in conjunction with chin surgery to achieve a more balanced appearance or other facial procedures. It can be performed as a closed technique where all the incisions are hidden inside the nose, or it may be performed as an open technique where in addition to the hidden incisions inside the nose there is an externally (non-visible) incision near the base of the columella.*
How Rhinoplasty Actually Reshapes the Nose
Incisions in the nostrils or at the base of your nose provide access to the cartilage and bone. Dr. Aboolian can remove a hump and bring the bones together to form a narrower bridge. Cartilage is trimmed to reshape the nasal tip. Trimming the septum improves the angle between the nose and lips. A splint helps the bone and cartilage of your nose maintain shape.*
After Rhinoplasty: Understanding Recovery Time
The day of your surgery, you will be sent home with nasal packing and/or a special splint. You will be advised to avoid activities that have the potential to cause impact on your nose. After nose surgery, you can return to your normal routine in about 1 to 2 weeks.* Medications will be prescribed to control discomfort during the first week.
Note from Dr. Aboolian on Rhinoplasty
“I like to do rhinoplasty surgery very much. Every nose is different and must be treated as unique when I am planning and performing the surgery. There is also very little room for error with a rhinoplasty. I like the meticulous nature of reshaping a nose. A well-done rhinoplasty is an accomplishment each time it’s done. When a patient’s nose is reshaped with great care, the improvement in the contours of the nose affects more than look of the nose itself. It also makes the eyes stand out. The entire face looks more attractive, becomes more memorable.”
