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.
The best candidates for nose surgery are men and women who:

"The Best in the West for noses, faces, and all! - Several years ago I had my deviated septum repaired, it was the worse experience and the recovery was so painful. You would think it would be easier and quicker for the fact I was much younger, not true. Unfortunately, a few years later I had a little incident with a softball to the nose. Having my septum repaired again was not an option, no way would I go through that pain again. Time passed, I was getting a lot of sinus headaches. I had a consultation with Dr. Bunkis and felt so at ease with him that I scheduled my surgery less than two weeks after my consultation. I felt incredibly comfortable having him as my surgeon, he answered all my questions patiently and thoroughly, and was there every step of the way. The down time was a piece of cake! I even went back to work two days after surgery and barely had anything to complain about. Itâ??s been several months since my surgery and I couldnâ??t be happier. Iâ??ve even made Dr. Bunkis my go- to guy for Botox, lasers and all other aesthetic needs."- Anonymous / Vitals / May 05, 2014

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.
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.
