Balance and harmonize the overall profile of the face through surgical sculpture of the nose.
Your nose can be your most prominent feature—it defines your profile and shapes your midface, bringing harmony and balance to the upper and lower face. However, if your nose is too small, too large, or has an unnatural curve to it, it can dramatically affect your appearance, drawing attention away from other beautiful and flattering features. If you feel self-conscious about your nose shape, you may be a good candidate for a nose surgery procedure with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sadati in Newport Beach, CA.
Rhinoplasty is also known as a “nose job.” The purpose of this procedure is to reshape the nose and enhance its proportions and visual harmony with other features. Nose surgery can also improve breathing and correct problems with the structure of the nose.
For most patients, the purpose of a rhinoplasty is to enhance the appearance of the nose. This may entail reducing the overall size of the nose, reduce the width of the nose bridge, reduce bulbous or enlarged nostrils or nasal tip, reduce the appearance of a hump on the nasal bridge, or create a more symmetrical shape. The overall goal is to create a more symmetrical and balanced face.
It’s relatively common to perform rhinoplasty to correct a deviated septum, which is one of the most common breathing impairments. A deviated septum partially obstructs the airway in one or both nostrils. By carefully correcting this problem, nose surgery procedures can create better alignment and improve the patient’s breathing.
A rhinoplasty is performed under general anesthesia. Once the patient is asleep, the internal and external part of the nose is numbed with lidocaine. Once the nose is completely numb, incisions are made. The placement of these depends on whether you are having an open rhinoplasty (in which incisions are made on the columella on the outside of the nose) or a closed rhinoplasty (in which incisions are placed inside the nose.) Through these incisions, the nose is reshaped according to your cosmetic goals or functional needs. When these steps are complete, incisions are closed using dissolvable sutures.
Traits that can be corrected with a rhinoplasty procedure generally include:
- Over- or under-projection of the bridge or tip
- A bridge or nostrils that are too wide or narrow
- A deviated septum or other issue that impedes your breathing
During your extensive consultation, you will discuss your goals and questions about the procedure, which is one of the most important steps of your consultation process. Dr. Sadati will examine the inside of your nose to look for any signs of a deviated septum or injuries that may be causing cause breathing issues. This will help him to determine the best surgical technique for your nose that will yield a beautiful, harmonious result that is both flattering and functional.
Once your consultation is complete, our expert patient coordinators will ensure you’re guided through every step of the booking process at the Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery & Aesthetic Lounge.
During your consultation, you’ll have the opportunity to ask rhinoplasty surgeon Dr. Sadati whatever questions you may have about your current condition and the upcoming surgery. Before your appointment, take a moment to consider which questions you would like answers to. Some common questions include:
- What kind of specialty training have you undergone?
- How long have you been performing rhinoplasty?
- Where will my rhinoplasty take place?
- Am I a good candidate for rhinoplasty? Why or why not?
- What techniques will you use for my rhinoplasty?
- What can I expect from a recovery period after a rhinoplasty?
- What risks or complications associated with the surgery do I need to be aware of?
- What can I expect my nose to look like after rhinoplasty?
For many plastic surgeons, aesthetics come before functionality when performing rhinoplasty techniques. As a specialist in facial plastic surgery and reconstructive surgery, Dr. Sadati places equal importance on your visual results and anatomical ones. Rhinoplasty can be a complex surgery due to the unique and intricate structure of the nose, and Dr. Sadati prefers to focus on subtle and conservative changes that are sure to leave the integrity of the nose intact.
It’s important to remember when preparing for nasal surgery that it’s not a one-size-fits-all approach. A certain type of nose may not be flattering for every patient, so Dr. Sadati will recommend the best shape and contour for your unique face during your consultation.
We offer two common techniques for your rhinoplasty:
The open rhinoplasty technique uses a small incision under the nose to lift the skin of the nasal structure so that the underlying anatomy is exposed. This allows Dr. Sadati to craft the cartilage and bone to the desired shape. Grafts can also be used to create more projection in the nasal bridge or tip.
The closed rhinoplasty technique is less invasive but also provides less access, as the incisions are made inside the nose. Under the care of Newport Beach rhinoplasty surgeon Dr. Sadati, this technique can yield excellent, subtle results.
In the days after surgery, some patients question their decision to undergo rhinoplasty. This is not unusual. It can be traumatic to experience the swelling and bruising that occur following rhinoplasty. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, remember that you are in the early phases of recovery and this feeling will pass. Remember that you’ve entrusted your nose to a highly skilled plastic surgeon with many years of experience. As a top rhinoplasty surgeon, he has conducted thousands of surgeries in Orange County and will advise you what to expect and how to feel truly satisfied with your decision to have plastic surgery.
It is understandable that some patients experience sticker shock when they see the cost of a typical rhinoplasty procedure. However, it is important to keep in mind that while it may cost more to work with an expert, board-certified surgeon like Dr. Sadati, it is well worth the investment. Other surgeons who charge less are most likely inexperienced, and probably do not give patients the same individual attention that Dr. Sadati provides for Newport Beach patients. In order to help patients better understand his prices, Dr. Sadati takes time to explain to patients the various factors that influence the total cost of the surgery.
Surgeon Experience and Expertise
Board-certified rhinoplasty surgeons have spent years perfecting their craft, often investing in continuing education and spending more money to attend the best medical schools. This is why it costs more to work with better surgeons. Patients who go the cheap route have a much greater chance of requiring a revision procedure, which is not only more painful but also more expensive.
Patients will have to pay for this medical professional’s time and effort in addition to the surgeon. Most patients that are undergoing a rhinoplasty procedure will be placed under general anesthesia, which requires the utmost care and attention to perform well. Some patients might qualify for twilight anesthesia, which is where the anesthesiologist uses a local numbing agent and an oral sedative to keep the patient comfortable during the procedure. Proper anesthesia administration is vital to ensuring your comfort and the success of the surgery.
There are several different types of facilities available for patients to choose from when they decide to undergocosmetic surgery performed. The most expensive facility is a traditional hospital room, which can cost thousands of dollars. Dr. Sadati prefers to use an accredited plastic surgery center, which provides patients with the cleanliness and care that they need. Most patients prefer this facility because it is moderately priced. The least expensive option is to have the surgery performed in the doctor’s office, which is not always the safest option for the patient.
A person who is going in for a primary rhinoplasty that only requires a few simple adjustments will find that their surgery will take less time and effort, and will therefore be cheaper in the end. However, a patient who needs a revision rhinoplasty will find that this surgery takes more time and also costs more because it is a much more complex plastic surgery.
When considering a rhinoplasty, there are a number of things you need to be aware of before selecting a cosmetic nose surgeon. First, only consider a board-certified specialist that has vast rhinoplasty experience and expertise in the field of nasal surgery. Because nasal anatomy is so complex, there are many different types of corrections that can be made to change the shape of a nose, and it is very important to find an expert facial plastic surgeon that offers a variety of options when it comes to nose surgery.
Dr. Kevin Sadati sub-specializes in nasal surgery and has been performing cosmetic nose surgery for over 15 years in Orange County. He has a vast amount of experience in all types of corrections to the nose and will take the time needed before scheduling your procedure to address any concerns you may have. He can also advise you on the wide range of options available. This type of doctor-patient partnership ensures a successful rhinoplasty when you’re comfortable and educated about the process.
Another important thing to consider when searching for a cosmetic nose surgeon is that rhinoplasty affects two important aspects of your nose. It is primarily used to correct structural aesthetic problems, but can also help patients improve their breathing. Because most rhinoplasty surgery is used to adjust the cartilage and bone that makes up the nose, great care must be taken to balance any changes made to these structures to maintain and improve breathing. Dr. Kevin Sadati is committed to maintaining this balance and takes a holistic approach to any nose surgery he performs to ensure a good outcome for the patient in both cosmetic and functional ways.
