Enhance Your Nasal Appearance With Rhinoplasty in Thousand Oaks

Because the nose is the centerpiece of the face, it tends to have a huge impact on your overall facial balance and harmony. So, if you aren’t satisfied with your nasal shape, size, or proportions, it’s likely to be quite detrimental to your self-confidence and self-image. Fortunately, you don’t necessarily have to settle for the way your nose currently looks; at Elevate Plastic Surgery, we offer a procedure called rhinoplasty, which can create subtle yet transformative changes to your nasal structure and appearance.

What Is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a nose job, is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to reshape the nose. This procedure can be performed for both cosmetic and functional reasons. Most commonly, rhinoplasty is used to improve a person’s nasal aesthetics and facial harmony, but it can also be performed to correct certain breathing problems.

During the procedure, Dr. Rahgozar makes incisions in the nose, which he then uses to reshape the bone and cartilage to achieve the patient’s desired nasal aesthetic. The incisions are typically made inside the nostrils, so there is no visible scarring. In some cases, an additional incision may be made on the outside of the nose, depending on the individual’s specific treatment plan.

Rhinoplasty can be used to address all of the following issues:

  • A crooked nose
  • A bulbous or wide tip
  • A hump or bump on the bridge of the nose
  • A deviated septum
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Damage caused by injury
  • Excessive nasal projection
  • Wide nostrils

What to Expect During Your Rhinoplasty Surgery

For patients considering rhinoplasty in Thousand Oaks, sitting down to consult with Dr. Rahgozar will be an important first step. During this meeting, Dr. Rahgozar will closely examine your nose and listen to your specific hopes for the procedure. He’ll also ask you about things like your medical history and current health to ensure that you’re a good candidate for rhinoplasty. Dr. Rahgozar will evaluate your aesthetic goals and facial structure to help you determine your ideal nasal size and shape. 

The procedure will then be custom-tailored to help you achieve your preferred facial appearance. Rhinoplasty is typically performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia. To begin, Dr. Rahgozar will make small incisions inside your nostrils. If you’re undergoing an open rhinoplasty, there will also be an additional incision across your columella. Dr. Rahgozar will then use these incisions to reshape the bone and cartilage in your nose based on your unique treatment plan.

If you're having a deviated septum corrected, he will also straighten the septum during the procedure. Once Dr. Rahgozar has finished making your preferred nasal adjustments, he’ll use sutures to close your incisions and apply bandaging to the treatment area. You’ll then need to be monitored for a couple of hours while you gradually recover from the anesthesia. You can then head home with a friend or family member driving you.

Recovery After Rhinoplasty

After undergoing rhinoplasty, you can expect approximately one to two weeks of resting and recovering at home. During this time, you may experience some swelling, bruising, or discomfort. You can reduce the swelling by sleeping with your head elevated, and Dr. Rahgozar can also prescribe pain medication as needed. For the first week of recovery, it’s especially important to stay hydrated, maintain a healthy diet, and occasionally take light walks to keep your blood flowing. Once you’ve made it through the first week or two, you should feel well enough to gradually ease back into your normal routine. At this time, most patients can return to work, but it’s important to refrain from strenuous physical activity for at least four to six weeks.

Candidates for Rhinoplasty

Adults who aren’t happy with the appearance of their nose could be good candidates for our nose job in Thousand Oaks. Most commonly, the procedure is performed on individuals who want to make natural-looking adjustments to the size and/or shape of their nose or correct nasal deformities. However, rhinoplasty is also an effective choice for people experiencing nasal breathing problems, such as a deviated septum.

To be an ideal candidate for rhinoplasty, it’s important to meet the following criteria:

  • Be in good physical health
  • Have a fully developed nose
  • Have realistic expectations for the procedure
  • Not be currently pregnant or nursing
  • Be a non-smoker or willing to temporarily quit
