Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures in the U.S., but it is also one of the most technically challenging for a plastic surgeon to master. Few surgeons have Dr. Vartany’s combination of surgical skill, experience, and artistic eye to produce consistently remarkable results. Dr. Vartany is known for ensuring patients’ noses are in harmony with their other facial features, so the results look natural.

Is Rhinoplasty Right for You?

Dr. Vartany performs rhinoplasty on patients in their teens to adults in their 30s, 40s, or older, who have realistic goals about the outcome of the surgery. Reasons for rhinoplasty include:

  • You’ve always been unhappy with some aspect of your nose
  • You’ve suffered an injury that changed the shape of your nose
  • You have difficulty breathing through your nose.

The best candidates for rhinoplasty are nonsmokers in good overall health without medical conditions that could complicate healing. It’s also important that you have a positive outlook and realistic aesthetic goals for your rhinoplasty.

Why Choose Dr. Vartany for Rhinoplasty?

When patients don’t choose an experienced rhinoplasty specialist such as Dr. Vartany, they often end up seeking a second procedure to revise the initial results. Dr. Vartany is the surgeon patients often choose for revision surgery. The delicate anatomy of the nose requires a surgeon with expertise that exceeds what’s needed for other plastic surgery procedures. Dr. Vartany is a true artist who has perfected his technique through his many years in practice.

Dr. Vartany also believes that excellent rhinoplasty results begin during the consultation when patients discuss why they want cosmetic nose surgery and what they don’t like about the shape or size of their nose. Dr. Vartany creates a custom surgical plan based on this candid conversation, an examination of the nose, and general discussions about health and lifestyle.

Rhinoplasty patients also have the opportunity to see the potential results of their procedure using 3D imaging technology at our practice. Our patients truly appreciate this tool because they can preview “before-and-after” digital photos of projected results from a nose job.

How Is Rhinoplasty Performed?

Rhinoplasty changes the shape or size of your nose—or both—so that it is in harmony with the rest of your facial features and doesn’t detract from your appearance. A large or wide nose may divert attention from naturally attractive eyes or excellent bone structure. Small changes to the nose can produce dramatic results for people who have always been self-conscious about their noses.

Rhinoplasty Incisions

Dr. Vartany performs either a “closed” or “open” rhinoplasty technique, which influences where he makes incisions for the procedure.

Closed rhinoplasty: A closed rhinoplasty involves making incisions inside the nostrils, meaning there is no visible scar following surgery. This is the technique Dr. Vartany uses most often for rhinoplasty procedures.

Open rhinoplasty: When Dr. Vartany performs an open rhinoplasty, he makes an incision on the columella, the small strip of skin separating the nostrils. After making the incision, he lifts the skin to expose the nasal structures. The small scar that results fades significantly and is virtually imperceptible.

Dr. Vartany performs rhinoplasty with his patients under general anesthesia.

What Happens During Recovery After Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty patients are often pleasantly surprised after surgery because the discomfort they experience is far less than they expected. We provide detailed post-op instructions that can help you recover as quickly and as comfortably as possible.

You should plan to take at least a week off from work or school after your surgery. Getting plenty of rest, especially during the first 24 hours after the surgery, is very important, and you should make sure you have a family member or friend staying with you during this time. You can expect bruising and swelling that gradually resolves on its own, along with stuffiness and a sensation of pressure in the nose. Dr. Vartany removes the splint from your nose a week after surgery at your first post-op appointment. He doesn’t use nasal packing, which many patients find to be the most uncomfortable part of rhinoplasty.

Preparing for your recovery is important. You should fill prescriptions before the surgery and have cold compresses prepared to use when you return home. Another tip is to eat fresh pineapple in the days leading up to the surgery can help reduce discomfort and swelling.

When Will I See Results After Rhinoplasty?

When Dr. Vartany removes the splint from the nose about a week after surgery, the nose will be very swollen and patients often believe that their noses are wider than before the surgery. This excessive swelling gradually goes down during the first 3 weeks after surgery. Residual swelling persists, especially on the tip of the nose, and it can be up to a year before patients see the final results of their nose jobs.

How Much Does Rhinoplasty Cost?

The cost of rhinoplasty depends on a number of factors. These include the training and experience of the plastic surgeon, the geographic location of the practice, and the changes being made during the procedure. We prepare a detailed price quote following your consultation that you can review at home before making a decision about getting the procedure.

We understand that cost is a factor for most patients, but we strongly recommend that you don’t base your choice of plastic surgeon primarily on how much the procedure costs, especially with rhinoplasty. Having a surgeon perform the surgery correctly the first time will save you money. We also offer financing for qualified patients that can help spread out payments.

Dr. Vartany is just amazing! He has performed my breast lift and breast augmentation and I absolutely love it!! He is so kind, patient, and very detail orientated. He answered all my questions and was very realistic about what the outcome was going to be like. He doesn't sell you a story, he explains how each body type is different and even if you do the same surgery the results can be different from person to person. His entire staff is wonderful as well. Front desk was welcoming and friendly, and the surgery nurses very caring and thoughtful. Surgery went so smooth, it felt like I just went to sleep and woke up. No extra commotion. They called me the next day to see how I was doing and at my post-op everyone was just very attentive. Overall, it was a great experience!!! I recommend that Dr. Vartany to anyone who wants a beautiful natural look.

Get laser hair removal by time block instead of by area. Get more areas covered for your money. Laser facial is awesome, got rid of my preggo spots and dark freckles!

One of the best doctors around. I had three procedures on my nose and my eyes.For years I was skeptical to go under knife as I am a 56 years old male with some underling heart problems. The surgery was practically painless and to my wonder recovery was super fast. On cosmetic side, he did exactly what I asked for, no more, no less. The entire staff are super polite and professional.
