About Nose Surgery

The cosmetic procedure of recontouring the nose (rhinoplasty) is one of the more popular operations performed by plastic surgeon Dr. Juris Bunkis. You may have considered corrective nasal surgery if your nose is misshapen, disproportionately large or small for your face, or if you have had an injury, which makes breathing difficult. In most cases the desired results are achieved by reshaping the cartilage and the bone. The patient's input is always sought regarding the desired nasal change. Prior to your rhinoplasty surgery, Dr. Bunkis will answer all your questions and discuss the upcoming operation with you in great detail. Together, you will set goals and expectations for your nose job surgery at Orange County Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach or Dublin, CA. Dr. Bunkis will tell you about the realistic outcomes in your specific and unique case. When planning the nasal surgery operation, your entire facial profile will be considered. Dr. Bunkis will give you a good idea of what can be expected following rhinoplasty surgery by working with our advanced office digital imaging system.

Ideal Candidates

The best candidates for nose surgery:

  • Have cosmetic nose issues they want transformed
  • Have realistic outcomes
  • Desire a long-term solution
  • Desire a natural look

What to Expect

An outpatient procedure, rhinoplasty is performed while a patient is under deep sedation and local anesthesia or a lifht general anesthesia at the accredited Orange County Surgery Center. Depending on the technique used and the patient’s unique needs, surgery will usually last 1 ½ hours. There are 2 types of nose surgery procedures: open rhinoplasty and closed rhinoplasty.

Open rhinoplasty, or external rhinoplasty, involves the plastic surgeon making a small incision on the underside of the nose between the nostrils to give the surgeon better access to the lower and middle parts of the nose. The surgeon can then manipulate tissue, skin, and bone as needed. In addition, the placement of the incisions allows for minimal scarring. Open rhinoplasty is used for more complex nose surgeries.

With closed rhinoplasty, or endonasal rhinoplasty, incisions are made inside of the nostrils. This technique is usually used for less complex surgeries, such as when the nose already has a good shape and isn’t considered too wide or too long. Due to the placement of the incisions, there will be no visible scarring.

Anticipated Results

After surgery, a patient’s nose can be stabilized with splints made of soft material. A follow-up appointment will be scheduled for the next day where the splints will be removed and external dressings will be placed on the nose, which will remain for about 2 days. Patients should expect some pain, discomfort, bruising, and swelling after surgery that should fully subside within a few weeks. The nose will reposition and evolve into its surgically enhanced shape for months after surgery. The finished product should be fully realized within a year with a beautifully shaped, positioned, and proportionate nose.
