What Is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty surgery, or nose reshaping surgery, has the potential to improve the overall appearance of the face, when performed correctly. Even the subtlest tweaks can improve facial harmony and balance. Many patients also have breathing problems that can be addressed. You can see the results in our rhinoplasty before and after pictures.

How Is Rhinoplasty Surgery Performed?
To alter the size of the nose, Dr. Mozaffari can either remove cartilage or use a cartilage graft from another area of the face (e.g., septum) or body. He makes other improvements as needed to alter the shape and features of the nose. A bump may be smoothed, or the nostrils can be refined so they look more symmetrical or proportional.
Depending on the specific patient, Dr. Mozaffari may limit the incisions inside the nostrils, or add an extra incision across the small strip of skin separating the nostrils (called the columella), which leaves a barely noticeable scar.
What Can I Expect During Recovery from Rhinoplasty?
Your nose will be filled with a substance to hold the tissues in place. A splint is used on the outside of the nose. Bruising, swelling, and discomfort are common after rhinoplasty surgery.
What Results Can I Expect from My Rhinoplasty?
The nose may take several weeks to heal. Once the swelling goes down, your nose is better proportioned with your facial features.
Am I a Good Candidate for Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is typically performed to address one or more of the following:
- A wide nasal bridge
- Visible hump or dip on the bridge
- Nasal tip that is bulbous, drooping, upturned or hooked
- Large or wide nostrils
- Crooked or asymmetrical nose
- Deviated septum
- Enlarged turbinates and airway problems
Dr. Mozaffari uses a state-of-the-art computer program to help evaluate each patient and define exact goals for changing the post-operative nasal appearance before surgery.
