WITH DR. EMER
Rhinoplasty, or nose job surgery, is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries. At his office in Beverly Hills, facial sculpting expert Dr. Jason Emer and his team of board-certified plastic surgeons can address a range of functional and cosmetic concerns with your nose.
Am I A Good Candidate for Rhinoplasty?
Dr. Emer and his team of expert plastic surgeons can determine your candidacy for rhinoplasty in a consultation. A thorough evaluation of your nasal structure and tissues will be performed, along with a discussion of your medical history and any functional concerns you have. Since rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure, candidates must be in good health and willing to abstain from smoking as directed.
Not every patient is a good candidate for surgery, and some patients simply are not comfortable with having an invasive procedure. In these cases, non-surgical rhinoplasty may be the best option. While some structural and functional issues necessitate surgical correction, a non-surgical nose job can effectively address a wide range of cosmetic complaints.
What Can Rhinoplasty Fix?
A nose job can address many unwanted characteristics of the nose. The angle, width, shape, size, and projection of the nose can be modified with rhinoplasty. Our surgeons can:
- Correct asymmetry
- Bring the overall size of the nose into proportion with the face
- Reduce the size of the nasal tip
- Correct an upturned tip
- Shorten or lengthen the nose
- Eliminate bumps and humps
- Refine nostril width
- Fill indentations
What Medical Conditions Can Rhinoplasty Treat?
Rhinoplasty may also be performed to treat several medical conditions relating to poor airflow through the nose. Rhinoplasty can improve symptoms associated with:
- Sleep apnea
- Congenital or injury-related structural abnormalities
- Nasal masses or polyps
- A deviated septum
- A cleft lip or cleft palate
Closed Rhinoplasty vs. Open Rhinoplasty
Based on your treatment goals and unique nasal structure, Dr. Emer’s plastic surgeon will perform open rhinoplasty or closed rhinoplasty. Patient safety and optimal results are the guiding factors in every decision made by Dr. Emer and his team.
This technique involves small incisions inside the nose to access and adjust nasal tissues. This approach can be used when minor modifications alone can achieve the patient’s desired outcome. As the nose remains closed for this surgery, recovery times are shorter than with open rhinoplasty
Open rhinoplasty is preferable for complex or extensive alterations. With this approach, a tiny incision is made under the nose, so the surgeon can open the area and view the nasal structure. This visual access allows the surgeon to precisely modify the internal airway and to intricately contour the nasal structure.
How Much Does Rhinoplasty Cost?
The price of rhinoplasty varies based on the complexity of the corrections needed and the overall surgery time. You will receive detailed information about the costs associated with your rhinoplasty at your consultation.
