Rhinoplasty, also known as nose surgery, can reshape the nose, improve size, and correct asymmetries. Some patients may opt for rhinoplasty to correct bumps along the nose bridge or tip, while others would like to enhance their nose shape. Nose surgery can also be used for reconstructive purposes for patients who have suffered facial trauma. Additionally, patients suffering from breathing problems, such as a deviated septum, can undergo rhinoplasty to alleviate these issues. Your rhinoplasty surgeon should be able to perform both open or closed (endonasal) nose surgery to tailor each specific procedure to the individual patient being treated. At Asaadi Plastic Surgery, we offer a variety of nose surgery techniques to improve the appearance of your nose. In some cases, rhinoplasty can be combined with chin implants, facelift surgery, blepharoplasty, brow lift surgery, and other facial rejuvenation procedures.
Rhinoplasty can surgically enhance the shape and contour of your nose to better fit in with your facial profile. Dr. Asaadi can perform different types of rhinoplasty, depending on your procedure goals. During closed rhinoplasty, all incisions are made inside of the nostrils. Cartilage is then carefully reshaped and sculpted to enhance the nose. The open rhinoplasty technique is similar to the closed method, but requires an additional incision across the columella (the small strip of skin that separates your nostrils). Dr. Asaadi also performs revision rhinoplasty for patients who have underwent a prior nose surgery and are unhappy with their results. Cosmetic fillers are used to reshape the nose non-surgically and correct crookedness, bumps, or asymmetries without any recovery time.
|Open Rhinoplasty||Closed Rhinoplasty||Revision Rhinoplasty||Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty|
|Incisions are placed inside your nose, with an additional incision at the base of your nostrils||All incisions are placed inside of your nose||Can utilize either the open or closed technique, depending on the specific revision being performed||Uses cosmetic fillers. No incisions required|
|Can be used for more-complicated nose surgeries||Ideal for less-complicated nose surgeries||Reserved for patients who have underwent a previous nose surgery and would like to improve upon their results||Can be used for revision nose surgeries to enhance results|
|Minimal scarring following your nose surgery, as most incisions are made inside your nose||No scarring is visible after your procedure, as all incisions are made inside your nose||Can yield minimal-to-no scarring, depending on the technique used||Non-surgical treatment results in no scarring or downtime|
Different cosmetic fillers can be utilized when performing non-surgical rhinoplasty to enhance nose size and shape for patients who have had a previous nose surgery performed. This method of revision nose surgery is completely non-invasive and requires no downtime or recovery. Additionally, no incisions or stitches are required during this technique.
Dr. Asaadi will evaluate your nose to determine which nose surgery technique is right for you. Your medical history will also be carefully examined to ensure that you are a candidate for rhinoplasty. Age is another factor when considering nose surgery. Teenagers may be ideal candidates to undergo rhinoplasty if the nose is fully developed and they have the consent of their parents or guardians. Dr. Asaadi can help determine if you are eligible for nose surgery.
Rhinoplasty patients are provided with pre-care guidelines before undergoing treatment. Certain aspects of your diet, as well as certain medications or supplements, may need to be avoided before undergoing surgery. At Asaadi Plastic Surgery, we encourage you to plan ahead for your procedure. Patients are encouraged to have a friend or relative drive them to and from their surgery. We also suggest that you give yourself a few days to recover following treatment. Dr. Asaadi and our staff can discuss more pre-care instructions during your consultation at our office.
It is common to experience puffiness or aches for the first day or so after your traditional nose surgery. Dr. Asaadi will prescribe medication to help relieve discomfort during the initial days of recovery. Patients should remain with their head elevated and keep applying ice packs or cold compresses to reduce swelling and bruising. Depending on your rhinoplasty procedure, nose packings may be necessary; these should be removed within 2 weeks of your procedure along with your stitches.
Traditional nose surgery patients can usually return to work after a week of downtime. However, strenuous activity should be avoided—this includes exercise, housework, and bending over. You should also avoid touching your nose. For those undergoing revision rhinoplasty with cosmetic fillers, there is no downtime required and patients can resume their daily activities immediately after treatment. Dr. Asaadi, as well as our caring staff, can assist with any post-operative questions you may have.
Rhinoplasty is designed to achieve long-lasting enhancements to the size and shape of your nose. Patients can also improve nose symmetry and address function issues, including a deviated septum. Post-procedure scarring after nose surgery is virtually invisible, due to Dr. Asaadi’s carefully placement of incisions. Patients who undergo revision rhinoplasty with cosmetic fillers do not require incisions and do not experience scarring.
It is important that you choose a skilled rhinoplasty surgeon who understands your individual anatomy, as every patient’s facial structure is different. When the right plastic surgeon performs nose surgery, there is usually no need for a revision. Your nose surgeon should be experienced in open, closed, and non-surgical rhinoplasty in order to best fit the needs of each individual patient. Dr. Asaadi stresses the importance of choosing a qualified, experienced, and board-certified plastic surgeon when considering rhinoplasty.

Dear Dr. Asaadi,
I have always had bags under my eyes, but as I became older, they seemed to get worse. Every time I looked in the mirror, all I saw were those bags. At least once a day at work, someone would ask me if I was tired. So, when my daughter announced her engagement, I thought it was time to do something. I made an appointment with Dr. Asaadi to see what my options were. My surgery was scheduled for August of 2012.
I was scared and apprehensive, but it was the right decision. I feel like a new person. No one asks me anymore if I am tired and I don’t shy away from having my picture taken. Dr. Asaadi and his staff have been terrific, so caring and professional. I only took one week off from work, and the bruising was minimal.
I probably would still have the bags if my daughter didn’t get married.
But, I am so thankful I had the surgery. And I was the proud mother of the bride. - M.W.
Dear Dr. Asaadi,
I have known Dr. Asaadi for fifteen years. I first met him in my fifties. I look tired and worn out and looking for a more youthful appearance. In meeting Dr. Asaadi he presented a picture of a very sincere and up standing person.
He took the time to go over my goals and together we outlined what was needed. I had rhinoplasty and eye corrective surgery. Down time was minimal and the results perfect.
Several years later I had a face lift and again was completely satisfied.
Presently I am 69 years old looking way better than when I first met with him. Let me add that since my surgery Dr. Asaadi has maintained my youthful appearance by using injectable fillers. He is a true genius and a very honest person whom I highly recommend.
Also his staff is the best - A.E.
Dear Dr. Asaadi,
Just a short note to tell you how happy I am and to thank you for your wonderful work. As soon as I walked out the door from our first consultation, I had this “feeling” and I knew you were the one I could put 100% trust in. Thank you for your attention to detail, the care you’ve shown me, and your warm personality. I count myself luck to know you.
Thanks and all the best to you!
Dear Dr. Asaadi,
“I am so very grateful for the tummy tuck that Dr. Asaadi performed on me. Dr. Asaadi has proven to me to be a meticulous artist of the body. I felt that the office and staff compares to no other. It has been 5 years since my surgery, I am 42 years old and I am feeling and looking just as good if not better since surgery. I am more confident putting on my clothing, especially bathing suits. Dr. Asaadi gave me my belly back from 20 years ago (pre-babies)."
I not only feel better in the way in which my body looks, but most important it changed the way I view myself inside and out.
Dear Dr. Asaadi,
My name is Paula and about a month ago you gave me some botox injections. I had recently finished nine months of very tough treatment for a stage III breast cancer and I was neither feeling nor looking my best. My hair had just begun to grow but I still was showing way too much forehead for my comfort zone so I thought perhaps a little botox would give me a "lift".
Well, I cannot say enough about my results. I feel fantastic about the way my skin looks. In fact, the other evening I bumped into some friends at a restaurant. The first thing they said to me was "your skin looks fabulous! Even better than before your diagnosis." Now that's amazing. Since seeing you, I have received numerous compliments about how alive I look. Well, I do have a great attitude but I have to say that your skillful work has really made me feel confident.
Thank you so much for your hard work and dedication. I wish all women who have been through treatment could feel as good as I feel. Thank you Dr. Asaadi.
Dear Dr. Asaadi,
“After 10 years of hearing comments about how tired I appeared, I decided that the time had come for me to take action which required more than just getting extra sleep!!!
I did my research and decided that Dr. Asaadi was the best choice upon seeing the results of past patients and the unique technique that he uses.
Now, close to two years later, I couldn't be happier! Not only do I look 10 years younger, but I now feel refreshed and vibrant. No more comments about how tired I appear.
This surgery not only restored my youth, but it greatly improved my confidence level. As a salesperson and a single girl, this is incredibly Important!!! Whereas prior to the surgery, I couldn't even think about walking out the door without makeup, now I am completely comfortable with it. No more trying to conceal or detract attention from the severe bags under my eyes!!! Friends and relatives, and even sometimes I, cannot believe the difference this surgery has made! One of the best parts is that it looks incredibly natural. No one would ever know I had anything done unless I had told them. A yearlong spa getaway would not have produced such results!"
It was hands down the best money I ever spent!!!!! I feel like I'm a walking billboard for Blepharoplasty.
Dear Dr. Asaadi,
“Once I decided to undergo a tummy tuck procedure, I knew my appearance would change for the better. What I did not anticipate is what a profound effect the results would have on my overall way of life. Along with giving me the body I wanted, the transformation gave me a great sense of confidence, reassurance, and security with myself. I now walk upright and confident, as opposed to slouched and submissive. I enjoy shopping for clothes and wearing two piece bathing suits on the beach.
If anyone is contemplating having this procedure done, I strongly encourage them to do so."
Thanks to Dr. Asaadi I have the perfect body and a better life. - CT
Dear Dr. Asaadi,
Thank you - the phrase is simple and the words are few, but behind them lies a world of appreciation. Special people like you make the world a brighter place.
Thank you for helping me get better. Also to improve day by day my special future. I pray God bless your hands to help the life of others.
On May 12, 2010 Dr. Asaadi performed a bilateral reduction mammoplasty, CORE AbdominoplastySM, repair of diastasis recti, VASER® LipoSelection of the back, flanks, upper inner thighs, pubic area, lateral chest walls, and a small area of the upper arms. I was very sore for the first week, but after that I could see improvement every couple of days. The more I walked the better and stronger I felt.
In exactly six weeks after the surgery I went with my daughter, son-in-law, and their 13 month old son to a destination wedding feeling great. My daughter was nervous that I wouldn’t be able to take care of the baby like I needed to ( her and her husband were in the wedding), but I had so much more energy and strength than I did in years. I felt so wonderful in my new clothes, and I can’t begin to express how many compliments I received.....especially in my “Tankini”!!!
I now look forward to getting up in the morning and picking out a nice fitting outfit for the day, and not some loose fitting shirt and baggy pants. Thank you, Dr. Asaadi....you gave me my self-confidence back!!!!”
Thank you, Dr. Asaadi....you gave me my self-confidence back!!!!”
Dear Dr. Asaadi,
Thank you for all your professionalism and time spent going over the procedure. I am pleased thus far; I can only imagine my gratitude in the months ahead, as I see my nose transforming. I put my face in the hands of a true sculptor and have nothing but praise and recommendation. Your staff are a wonderful representation of your reputation on being a true caring practice. Many Thanks.
