What is rhinoplasty?

Las Vegas, NV board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Khorsandi believes every individual should have the nose they wanted to be born with. Dr. Khorsandi creates beautiful noses at VIP Plastic Surgery using an artistic perspective, a precise technique, and the latest advancements in rhinoplasty. Commonly known as a "nose job," surgical rhinoplasty can improve the nose's appearance and breathing function. It works best for patients who have concerns about the size, shape, or functional problems. Making subtle changes to the nose can create beautiful and dramatic changes to a person's appearance. Often, patients have considered the procedure for many years before moving forward. Nose surgery can greatly improve an individual’s self-esteem if they feel unhappy with the appearance of their nose.

Rhinoplasty Surgical Technique

Rhinoplasty surgery is considered an outpatient treatment. We will perform your surgery at an accredited surgery center with general anesthesia. Depending on your individual needs, the cartilage may be reshaped, partially resected, sutured, and/or resuspended. Dr. Khorsandi may use cartilage grafts to enhance certain parts of the nose, improve breathing, and open up the airways. If performing a revision rhinoplasty surgery, we may need to harvest additional cartilage from behind the ear or another location. Usually, the bony parts of the nose need to be corrected with precise fracturing and resetting.

What to Expect During and After Rhinoplasty

After finishing your surgery, Dr. Khorsandi places absorbable sutures inside the nostrils. These sutures do not require us to remove them. Several small non-absorbable stitches are placed in the incision at the base of the nose. We can remove them in about 5 – 7 days after your surgery. You will also have soft silicone splints in the nose, which we remove during the post-operative period. For additional protection during recovery, patients wear a rigid splint on the back of the nose. You should avoid blowing your nose during the first week; however, you can use a saline spray to flush the nostrils. Finally, we highly recommend sleeping with your head elevated for the first 48 hours.

How Much Does a Nose Job Cost?

Patients can expect to pay around $10,500 for rhinoplasty surgery. More complex cases with skin and fat grafting or cartilage reconstruction raise the procedure's price. We believe in doing things right the first time. That's why your consultation will never be rushed, nor will your surgery. Dr. Khorsandi is the only Las Vegas, NV board-certified plastic surgeon who is a member of the Rhinoplasty Society. This organization is comprised of medical professionals who take a special interest in rhinoplasty surgery.

Rhinoplasty FAQs

What Are Common Side Effects After Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty patients will experience varying degrees of post-operative swelling. A large percentage of the swelling will resolve within the first few weeks. However, for the next few months, the nose may feel more firm with a small amount of swelling dissipating. Typically, all swelling has resolved within 6  – 12 months, and you can see your final results. Because it takes time for your body to heal, it is essential to realize that you will experience ongoing changes throughout the year with refinement as time progresses.

Do I Need A Nasal Pack?

No. Nasal packing is a thing of the past. Today, our group at VIP Plastic Surgery uses Doyle Splints. These soft, silicone splints help keep the nose straight during the healing process and decrease bleeding. Compared to previous recovery methods, the splints allow you to breathe so recovery is much more comfortable.

Surgical or Nonsurgical Rhinoplasty?

Surgery depends on the patient’s desired results and nose structure. We recommend surgery for patients who want significant changes. If the patient wants more subtle improvements, adding volume can be a simple solution.
