Why do most people consider the nose the defining feature of the face and wish to undergo a nose job surgery? The nose imparts an initial impression of ones character as it relates to the remainder of one’s facial features. In ideal situations, the character of one’s nose suits their personality, matches their disposition and compliments the remaining features. In less than ideal situations, the nose lacks definition, overpowers the face, or is not harmonious with the remaining features.

By definition, cosmetic rhinoplasty changes the architecture of the nose and most often makes the nose smaller.

4 Distinct types of Rhinoplasty:
1. Cosmetic rhinoplasty improves the nasal shape and its proportion to the rest of the face.
2. Functional rhinoplasty alleviates breathing difficulties.
3. Reconstructive rhinoplasty rebuilds a severely damaged or congenitally malformed nose.
4. Revision rhinoplasty corrects a suboptimal result from earlier surgery.
Different Kinds of Rhinoplasty Procedures:
Here are the four basic cosmetic and medical nose surgery procedures:
The open rhinoplasty procedure is used for major nose reshaping. During this surgery, the doctor will make an incision in the strip of skin separating the nostrils. With the skin and soft tissue lifted off, the surgeon can see and work with the underlying nasal anatomy.
The advantage of open rhinoplasty is that it provides the surgeon a direct visualization of the cartilage and other nasal anatomy, and the ability to manipulate nasal shape with more control and precision.
With a closed rhinoplasty, the incisions are made within the nose. The skin is separated from the bone and cartilage, allowing the surgeon access to the underlying structure. The bone and cartilage can then be reshaped, removed or augmented to achieve the desired shape or structural correction.
Closed rhinoplasty has the advantage of decreased amount of time in surgery, less swelling and less postoperative healing time.
Your plastic surgeon will discuss these procedures with you and tell you which one he or she thinks is the best for the surgical work needing for your case.
Revision rhinoplasty is also known as secondary rhinoplasty because it’s a second surgery performed to correct problems that have developed and persist after a previous surgical procedure on the nose.
A patient who does not like the outcome of the first surgery may be an ideal candidate for a revision rhinoplasty. This surgery may also have to be performed due to some structural difficulty or because of a trauma from an accident occurring after a person has already had nose altering surgery. Secondary rhinoplasty can be done either with an open or a closed procedure.
With filler rhinoplasty procedure, your doctor will use injectable fillers to change the shape of your nose. Some commonly used fillers for this non-surgical rhinoplasty are hyaluronic acid (Restalyne, Juvederm) or calcium hydroxyapatite (Radiesse).
With this non-surgical approach, the doctor can smooth out sharp angles and bumps, change the shape of the tip of the nose and restore a certain amount of symmetry.
Patients should take note that this is a cosmetic procedure and a filler nose job will not correct medical problems such as a deviated septum.
Benefits of Rhinoplasty
Here are some of the benefits of having a nose job:
- Breathe easier – Blockage in the nose, caused by a misshapen septum.
- Sleep well – Nasal cavities can cause excessive snoring, sleep apnea and other breathing difficulties.
- Improve self-esteem – Getting a nose job provides a boost of confidence for patients who were self-conscious about their nose.
Watch the video below of double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Monica Tadros, discuss the benefits of rhinoplasty.
All surgeries carry some risks. Here are some possible risks to be aware of after rhinoplasty surgery:
- Trouble Breathing
- Pain and Swelling
- Numbness Around the Nose
You will wear a nose splint for the first week and will experience slight bruising and swelling around the nose and the eye area. This will gradually dissipate over the course of a few days or weeks.
While recovery is different for every rhinoplasty patient, you can usually expect the following:
- A slight headache and minor pain
- Sleep interference
Besides following doctor’s orders, there are a few additional things you can do to help maximize recovery process after a rhinoplasty surgery:
- Avoid vigorous exercise
- Avoid heavy chewing
- Don’t laugh or smile too hard
- Avoid pulling clothing over your head
- Keep your new nose out of the sun
Types of rhinoplasty that may be covered by health insurance
You must first consult with a surgical specialist, a physician or facial plastic surgeon. Dr. Monica Tadros is a double board-certified rhinoplasty surgeon NJ, which makes her qualified to evaluate and treat these type of conditions related to the nose. Once a qualified surgical specialist makes the diagnosis, they will then recommend a surgical procedure plan for your particular case based on your goals and desired look of your nose.
Here are some of the rhinoplasty procedures that may be covered by your health insurance provider.
Deviated Septum Surgery (Septoplasty or Septal Reconstruction)
Surgery for a deviated septum is called a septoplasty, or septal reconstruction. This surgery involves straightening the septum to address breathing problems that arise from a crooked septum. A deviated septum is something that many NJ patients are born with and elect to have repaired as an adult because of breathing problems. Others develop a deviated septum as a result of some injury to the nose. Many patients do elect to have their nose reshaped at the same time as having septal surgery, but each procedure can be done without the other.
Enlarged Turbinate Reduction Surgery
The turbinates are normal structures inside the nose that run parallel to the nasal septum and help your nose humidify inspired air. There are actually three pairs of turbinates in the nose – the inferior, middle and superior. In most cases of nasal obstruction, it is the inferior turbinate that is the culprit. In many NJ patients, the turbinates become enlarged, which can block the nasal airway in terms of breathing. The turbinate reduction surgery is intended to make the turbinate structurally smaller while also reducing the activity of the turbinate so that there is less nasal congestion.
Nasal Valve Stenosis Surgery
Nasal valve stenosis implies a very specific condition where the nose is blocked on the inside due to narrowing of either the external or internal valve. These two critical areas inside of the nose refer to the nostril opening and the middle one-third of the nose on the inside, respectively. Although nasal valve surgery is primarily intended to help improve your nasal function, in most cases there is some passive change in the appearance of the nose as a result of the placement of these grafts.
Repair Of A Fractured (Broken) Nose
Repair of a fractured, or broken, nose is a very common procedure that is usually covered by your health insurance. In most cases, patients who have fractured their nose elect to have it repaired within the first two weeks of sustaining the injury. Others choose to wait months to years later before having the broken nose fixed. In a majority of patients who have a fractured or broken nose, there is some degree of visible change to the appearance of the nose. In this type of injury to the nose, the septum should be addressed at the same time as the fractured nose is being repaired.
