Cosmetic nose surgery (rhinoplasty) is an aesthetic treatment used to improve the shape and size of the nose. It may also help to correct functionality in many patients. Atlanta, GA plastic surgeon Dr. Fara Movagharnia is an experienced cosmetic face and nose surgeon who performs rhinoplasty surgery, taking a conservative approach to produce the most beautiful and natural-looking results. While rhinoplasty consists of delicate changes, results usually are impressively dramatic. Rhinoplasty at the Center for Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery can be used to make a nose appear smaller in size or enhance a nose that is large, protrudes outward, or of an irregular shape. The objective is to produce a more aesthetically appealing nose that meets your cosmetic desires and functions as it should.
Women and men both are candidates for cosmetic nose surgery. If you're displeased with the overall look of your nose and have specific concerns you wish to enhance or repair, this surgery may be the appropriate answer. It's very important that expectations are noted as your appearance will be altered. Furthermore, facial maturity should also be complete. This factor will be discussed during your consultation, even more so for individuals under 21.
"Exceeded my Expectations! - Dr. Fara Movagharnia did such an amazing job. I came recommended to him from another surgeon in Raleigh, NC. It was worth the travel and the results were amazing. I can't rave enough about his kindness and by far the best Dr. I've ever had. I've had two procedures done, rhinoplasty and vaginoplasty. He did such an amazing job and exceeded my expectations. It is clear how skilled he is. Amazing staff as well too :) Would recommend him to anyone!"- Anonymous / Vitals / Apr 22, 2014
Cosmetic nose surgery is performed while the patient is under IV sedation or general anesthesia and is considered an outpatient surgical procedure. Rhinoplasty has varying surgical methods depending on the specific patient case. Dr. Movagharnia performs rhinoplasty using either a closed approach or an open method. The objective during surgery is to remove excess tissue and cartilage or to build and increase cartilage if this is needed for reshaping. The nasal features are repositioned and the skin is reformed and draped over the newly enhanced framework. Stitches are placed either on the inside portion of the nose or in the natural external fold.
What to Expect
After nose surgery, you will be monitored closely in the recovery room and then you will be released to recover at home. The area around the nose will be very swollen and bruised for a week or so. In almost all patients, there is bruising beneath the eyes in addition to the nose. Cold compressions and prescription medication can assist with these effects. Your post-operative appointment with Dr. Movagharnia will occur within a day or so after surgery to assess the healing progress. On average, it takes around 2 – 4 weeks to heal from nose surgery. When in the process, strenuous activity or exercise should be avoided.
