Rhinoplasty in Calabasas

A pleasing nasal shape provides a bridge between the smile and the eyes, creating harmony and balance among the features. When the nose is overly prominent or misshapen, it can distract the eye from encountering a client’s overall beauty and attractiveness.

Nose surgery, or rhinoplasty, can be performed to help refine the nasal bridge, tip and nostrils, helping you to feel more confident and secure in how you look. Thanks to Dr. Tansavatdi’s immense skill and artistry, your rhinoplasty results will be elegant, natural and seamless. 

What is rhinoplasty?

If you are unhappy with the size or shape of your nose, rhinoplasty can present an excellent solution. The surgery can help to correct a pronounced hump at the nasal bridge, lift and sculpt a bulbous tip, or minimize nostrils that are too wide. In clients who feel their nose is too small, cartilage grafting can be performed to help create a more structured profile. It all just depends on your goals.

In addition to correcting aesthetic imperfections, rhinoplasty can help you to breathe better, clearing the nasal passageways. Dr. Tansavatdi performs rhinoplasty in such a way that it preserves your uniqueness and honors your cultural and ethnic heritage.

What is the difference between open and closed rhinoplasty?

During closed rhinoplasty, the incisions are made within the nostrils where they are unseen. This is ideal for clients concerned about scarring, but it might not be the appropriate technique for everyone. If more in-depth changes are needed in the bridge, tip and nostrils, open rhinoplasty may be called for.

In this case, a small incision is made at the base of the nostrils across the columella, where it is inconspicuous. The surgeon is able to lift up the skin and make adjustments within the nasal structures without restriction.

What are the benefits of a nose job?

  • Corrects an overly prominent nose
  • Improves the appearance of the bridge, tip and nostrils
  • Improves nasal symmetry 
  • Improves breathing
  • Helps create a more youthful, attractive aesthetic
  • Balances and harmonizes the features
  • Boosts self-image and self-confidence
  • Long-lasting results
  • Natural-looking, customized outcome

Who makes an ideal candidate for rhinoplasty in Calabasas?

Some clients will choose to first explore non-surgical rhinoplasty using fillers. If they then desire more permanent changes to the nasal shape, they can then pursue rhinoplasty. Good candidates for a nose job are realistic in their expectations. Rhinoplasty can definitely help improve your appearance, but it cannot make you look like a celebrity or a different person altogether. The procedure can help you to feel more confident, but it cannot solve all your problems in life. 

Lastly, patients pursuing surgery should be non-smokers of sound mind and body who are free from any significant health issues such as bleeding disorders or hypertension that might interfere with their rhinoplasty.

What can I expect from recovery?

After surgery, you will need a friend or family member to drive you home. It might be a good idea for this person to also stay with you during the first 24 hours of your recovery. Your nose will be dressed and you may have a splint or cast, which will be removed after about one week. Your pain can be well controlled with painkillers prescribed by the doctor. You may experience some minor stuffiness in the nose as well as mild bleeding, but these side effects will usually disappear within about 36 hours. 

Within several months your swelling will have quieted enough that you can see your final results emerging. Swelling does tend to last up to one year, however, so it’s important that you not judge your new nose right away. If after a year or more you are still unhappy with how your nose looks, then you can consider a revision procedure. Most clients who undergo rhinoplasty with Dr. Tansavatdi, however, are thrilled with their new, improved appearance.
