Dr. Jarrah-Nejad, MD, FACS, ("Dr. J"), a double board certified plastic surgeon, offers rhinoplasty in Beverly Hills (also known as a nose job) for either cosmetic or health-related reasons, or both. This procedure can restore facial harmony and symmetry, giving you back your confidence and, in many cases, finally putting an end to complexes you have carried with you since childhood. Rhinoplasty can also be used to treat patients for conditions like a deviated septum and other injuries or congenital defects that can cause respiratory issues or discomfort. Dr. J can perform rhinoplasty in Beverly Hills to alter the angle between the nose and upper lip, correct the nose bridge, remove bumps, narrow the tip, and more, depending on the individual needs of the patient.
Dr. J also offers revision rhinoplasty, to correct problems that may stem from failed rhinoplasty performed elsewhere. In the hands of a skilled and experienced, board certified plastic surgeon, rhinoplasty can be a true work of art, and finally bestow upon patients the appearance they have always wanted. That said, a responsible plastic surgeon must temper a patient’s aspirations with reasonable expectations. The ultimate goal here is to make alterations that enhance the natural curvature of the nose and blend nasal structure seamlessly with the rest of the face.
Dr. J will meet you face-to-face for an initial consultation, at which time he will carefully and meticulously examine both the exterior and interior of your nose, along with the rest of your facial structure. Always keeping balance and proportion in mind, he will work with you to decide on the best path forward, and through digital photography and computer imaging, give you a clear sense of what you will look like after the operation is successfully completed.
There are two fundamental approaches to rhinoplasty in Beverly Hills – open and closed. Open rhinoplasty involves a small incision to the columella (the fleshy end of the cartilage between the nasal passages), whereas the closed rhinoplasty is performed without cutting the columella. Dr. J will carefully outline the differences between closed and open rhinoplasty in Beverly Hills to you before suggesting the best course of action. Depending on the complexity of the surgery, rhinoplasty can be done either with local or general anesthesia. Rhinoplasty may be done surgical or non-surgical.
Patients should be able to return home the same day as the procedure, with a friend or family member. They may experience some swelling after the procedure. Dr. J may apply a splint immediately following the surgery. Oral medication and cold compresses should be sufficient for post-operative discomfort. During the recovery period, corrective glasses must be taped up and off the nose, so as to avoid any excessive weight pressing down on the nose as it heals. Dr. J will not leave you to muddle through your recovery on your own; long after the surgery, his relationship with you will continue, with regular follow-ups and indispensable advice on how to proceed. During a FREE consultation, Dr. J can further explain the benefits and risks of rhinoplasty in Beverly Hills. Rhinoplasty can be performed in isolation, or in conjunction with other procedures such as blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) or autologous fat grafts (fat transfer to the face).
