Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure to change the nose’s shape or size. The nose is a central feature of the face and can drastically affect the entire perception of one’s appearance. This procedure can address various cosmetic concerns and minimize the health risks associated with broken noses, congenital disabilities, or breathing difficulties.
Aesthetica LA offers rhinoplasty surgery in Tarzana to help those who wish to improve their facial appearance or fix breathing concerns. If you want to alter your nose in any way, speak with Dr. Yaghoubian. She is a board-certified surgeon with years of experience performing these procedures and helping patients achieve their goals.
The nose consists of both bone and cartilage protected by skin. The upper portion of the nose, also referred to as the bridge, is made of bone. The lower portion is cartilage, consisting of the upper lateral cartilage below the nasal bone and the lower lateral cartilage near your nostrils. When you pinch your nose to avoid a bad smell, you are squeezing the lower lateral cartilage area.
Rhinoplasty can alter the bone, cartilage, skin, or a combination of all three. Depending on a patient’s unique nose issues, Dr. Yaghoubian can achieve various cosmetic goals through a rhinoplasty, including:
When preparing for a rhinoplasty surgery, she will consider the patient’s facial proportions to ensure that the outcome will be natural and balanced. Dr. Yaghoubian is highly skilled at assessing a patient’s facial structure and proportions to achieve an optimal and symmetrical appearance through rhinoplasty surgery. Other factors, such as the thickness of the skin and the strength of the cartilage, may also affect results and must be carefully considered before the procedure.
In many cases, rhinoplasty surgery can be completed as an outpatient procedure, meaning that an overnight hospital stay is not necessary for recovery.
After the procedure, Dr. Yaghoubian may advise a patient to take a week off from work or school for rest and recovery. It is best to avoid strenuous activities following a rhinoplasty to ensure the quickest recovery, but most people begin to feel back to normal after a few days of rest. A rhinoplasty patient should be able to resume all activities within two to four weeks of the surgery.
If your nose’s appearance makes you unconfident when you look in the mirror or at pictures, consider a rhinoplasty surgery in Tarzana. Small surgical changes can drastically improve your looks and self-perception.
