One of the most common facial cosmetic surgeries is the rhinoplasty or nose surgery. It can reshape, reduce or augment a person's nose to achieve an 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.

What is a rhinoplasty or “nose surgery”?
A rhinoplasty or “nose surgery” is a cosmetic procedure performed to change the appearance of the nose. Whether you are male or female and no matter your ethnicity, there is a unique approach to the procedure for each person. Some of the most common reasons a nose surgery is desired are:
- A nose that’s seems too large or too small for your face
- The nose has a hump or bump
- Abnormally wide nose
- An overly large or protruding nose
- Pinched or flared nostrils
- A nose that is not straight or is crooked
In addition to an improvement in your appearance, nose surgery can also repair functional aspects of your nose. Combining nose reshaping with septoplasty (deviated septum repair) or endoscopic (sinus surgery) can effectively alleviate certain breathing problems. During the consultation process, Dr. Feledy will work with you to create a personalized surgical plan to fit your specific needs and goals to ensure that you get the best rhinoplasty Washington DC area surgeons can provide.

Am I a good candidate for nose surgery?
The best candidates for nose surgery in Washington DC 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, Dr. Feledy will be able to determine if you are a good candidate for nose surgery during the consultation process.
What are the risks of nose surgery?
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 or nosebleed. Dr. Feledy will discuss these risks in-depth with you prior to surgery.
What should I expect after the procedure, during the recovery process?
During the recovery process, you may experience puffiness, headache or nasal discomfort. Dr. Feledy may prescribe pain medication to alleviate 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 results can I expect and will I experience any significant scarring?
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.
