Achieving A Vastly Improved Appearance

Nose Surgery

A rhinoplasty or nose surgery is one of the most common facial cosmetic surgeries performed today. It can recontour, reshape, reduce or change a person's nose to achieve a vastly improved appearance. It can also dramatically increase your self-confidence. In addition to purely cosmetic reasons, it can be performed as a reconstructive action to correct birth defects or physical trauma such as a broken nose.

Unique Approach

What is a rhinoplasty or “nose surgery”?

Rhinoplasty, also known as a “nose job”, or “nose surgery” is a cosmetic procedure performed to change the appearance of the nose. Taking into consideration your gender and ethnicity, there is a unique approach to the procedure for each person. Below are common reasons a rhinoplasty is desired:

  • Nose seems too large or too small for your face
  • Nose has a hump or bump
  • Abnormally wide, short or long nose
  • A boxy or bulbous nasal tip
  • Pinched or flared nostrils
  • A nose that is crooked

In addition to an improvement in your appearance, nose surgery (rhinoplasty) can also repair functional aspects of your nose. Combining nose reshaping with septoplasty (deviated septum repair) can effectively alleviate certain breathing problems. During your consultation for a rhinoplasty Washington DC plastic surgeons, Dr. Feledy or Dr. Maiorino, will work with you to create a personalized surgical plan to fit your specific needs and goals.

Realistic Expectations

Am I a good candidate for a rhinoplasty?

The best candidates for rhinoplasty in Chevy Chase will have good overall mental and physical health and possess realistic expectations. Candidates should be 16 years of age or older and have finished facial growth. If you are still unsure, either Dr. Feledy or Dr. Maiorino will be able to determine if you are a good candidate for a rhinoplasty during the consultation process.

Recovering Time

Rhinoplasty Recovery

During the recovery process, Washington DC rhinoplasty patients may experience puffiness, headache or nasal discomfort. Additionally, you may experience some swelling and bruising, bleeding or stuffiness. In general, patients are able to resume everyday activities, including work within a week following surgery.

What to expect during your Rhinoplasty consultation:

If you are considering getting a rhinoplasty in DC, you should come in for a consultation with either Dr. Feledy or Dr. Maiorino at our Chevy Chase, Maryland location. You can expect the initial consultation to take at least an hour. When you meet with the surgeon, he will:

  • Hear what you'd like to get of your rhinoplasty procedure and listen to your concerns
  • Carry out a thorough physical examination
  • Give a detailed explanation of his recommendations to help you achieve your goal

The staff at Belmont Plastic Surgery will make sure that any questions you have about insurance and financing are answered completely. In most cases, your insurance will not cover your rhinoplasty, especially if it is being performed for cosmetic purposes. There is the potential that your insurance may cover nose surgery if it is being done for reconstructive or medical reasons (such as septoplasty). You will be able to view several different before and after photographs of their patients to help you get a realistic sense of what to expect after rhinoplasty surgery. It is important that you and your surgeon agree on the cosmetic details of your surgery in order to get the results you want. Call us today and schedule your consultation with what many consider to be the best plastic surgeon in DC, Drs. Jules Feledy and Eric Maiorino. Through thousands of surgeries and many years of practice, they have consistently produced stellar rhinoplasty results.

Rhinoplasty Results

When possible, incisions will be made inside of the nose so there is no visible scarring. In some cases, incisions will need to be made at the base of the nose. When performed correctly, these incisions should be easily concealed and scarring will fade over time.

Frequently Asked Questions

As with all surgical procedures, there are risks involved with nose rhinoplasty. Nose surgery is generally considered safe and complications are rare. Potential complications may include infection, adverse reaction to anesthesia, nosebleed, prolonged swelling and bruising. Your surgeon will discuss these risks in-depth with you prior to surgery.

The results of a rhinoplasty are generally long-lasting and often considered permanent, with the full outcome becoming apparent after several months as initial swelling subsides. Individual healing patterns, specific techniques used, and adherence to post-operative care instructions can influence the duration of the results. While most patients experience the majority of swelling and bruising during the initial weeks, the nose may undergo subtle changes over a year or more post-surgery. For personalized insights into the longevity of rhinoplasty results, consulting with an experienced plastic surgeon is recommended.

The level of pain experienced during rhinoplasty, or nose job, varies from person to person. Generally, patients can expect some discomfort and mild pain during the initial days after the surgery, which can be managed with prescribed pain medications. Swelling and bruising are common, but these symptoms typically peak within the first 48 hours and gradually subside over the following weeks. Adhering to post-operative care instructions, including keeping the head elevated and avoiding strenuous activities, can contribute to a smoother recovery with minimized discomfort.
