Rhinoplasty is among the cosmetic procedures with the highest satisfaction rate because the nose plays such a central role in determining the attractiveness of the face overall. When the nose is overly prominent, misshapen or drooping, it can distract the gaze from the eyes and the smile while also inhibiting the patient socially. Rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, is performed to correct imperfections in the nasal bridge, tip and nostrils, creating a nose that is better suited to your face. 

Dr. Tansavatdi is painstaking in her precision and artistry, delivering beautiful, natural-looking results that preserve your identity and unique essence while still minimizing the flaws that lower your self-confidence.

What is rhinoplasty?

There are many different reasons why people seek out rhinoplasty. Sometimes they are unhappy with the size of their nose and dislike everything about it, while other times they dislike only one part of the nose, such as its tip or nostrils. Dr. Tansavatdi can perform rhinoplasty according to your aesthetic preferences and express wishes for improvement, preserving your cultural and ethnic heritage and all the characteristics that make you unique. The procedure can not only improve the cosmetic appearance of the nose, but can also correct structural problems that make it difficult to breathe properly.

What is closed rhinoplasty?

With closed rhinoplasty, incisions are made inside the nose where they are hidden from view. The surgeon can then make modifications to the nasal structure without any exterior scarring. This approach is perfect for clients who require subtle changes to their appearance.

What is open rhinoplasty?

With open rhinoplasty, a small incision is made across the columella where it is unnoticeable. The surgeon can then lift the skin up, gaining unrestricted access to the inner structures of the nose in order to make adjustments. This approach is ideal when the client requires more extensive improvement.

Who makes an ideal candidate
for nose surgery in Malibu?

The best way to determine your candidacy is to meet with Dr. Tansavatdi in private to discuss your aesthetic goals and concerns about your appearance. From there, the doctor can create a customized action plan that addresses your needs and helps you to feel better about how you look. The requirements for surgery are that you are physically and emotionally healthy, you don’t smoke, and you are realistic in what you hope to get out of your treatment. While rhinoplasty can improve your looks immensely, it cannot solve all your problems or make you look like a different person. 

What can I expect from my recovery?

Downtime will vary from patient to patient, depending on the extent of the work performed and your own personal healing ability. Most clients can resume work within a few weeks, provided their job is not physically strenuous. 

After surgery, you will experience some swelling, bruising and tenderness at the treatment site. Dr. Tansavatdi will prescribe pain medications to help ease any discomfort. Over time, the swelling will gradually lessen and you will be able to see your new, improved nasal contours. Remember that swelling can persist for up to one year post-op, so it’s essential that you don’t judge your results too quickly.
