A strong factor in defining balance and harmony among facial features, the nose is the central and most prominent feature of the face. Its shape and size can define personal beauty and facial balance. Many patients often remark that an aesthetically unpleasing nose puts their whole face out of focus, withdrawing attention from the beauty of their eyes and their brow or their lips and cheeks, much as an out of focus camera lens. Volumes of text have been written about features that make a nose beautiful or aesthetically unpleasing. When the nose is out of proportion with the rest of your facial features, it can negatively influence an individual's self-image and self-confidence. A large humpy ridge, or undefined and down turned tip steal undue attention and can make the owner very self-conscious even during normal conversation. Normal nasal function, with respect to breathing, is also important in maintaining health. A chronically obstructed nasal airway can significantly affect the life-style, sleep cycle, and overall health of an individual.
Some are easily recognized and agreed upon, such as removal of a large nasal hump, or mild lifting of a down-turned tip. Other features are subject to the keen eyes of the patient, her or his plastic surgeon, and the cultural norms. Determining what needs to be done requires excellent communication between the plastic surgeon and the patient aided by patient’s photographs, a deep understanding of the underlying nasal anatomy by the surgeon, and experience to perform hundreds of possible steps to achieve a desired outcome that can last a lifetime.
Whether you have a personal desire to improve your appearance, seek to improve breathing function or are self-conscious about the size or shape of your nose, cosmetic surgery of the nose, or Rhinoplasty, may be right for you. It can improve facial symmetry and balance, straighten a crooked nose, correct for breathing abnormalities, or reduce the size of an overly large nose by changing the shape of the bridge, tip, or nostrils. Functional corrective procedures such as septoplasty, and submucous turbinate resection often complement aesthetic Rhinoplasty to achieve improved function and well-being in the patient.

Real Rhinoplasty Cases – Performed by Dr. Golshani
I have had the privilege to transform my patients' lives through the power of rhinoplasty – a procedure whose subtle results have such a dramatic impact in many areas of life. However, I wanted to focus on a few of my patients – who have given me their permission to share with you - in revealing real stories that may be very similar to your own case.
This patient complained of her nose being too large with a bump that apparently "ran in the family." During her rhinoplasty procedure I softened her profile, shaving down the large bridge, and re-shaped the nostrils to give her the nose she had always wanted. Onced her nose healed up you couldn't even notice that anything had been done.
This patient noted that her nose did not match her, and that taking photos and even looking others in the eye was an issue. With this patient's procedure I softened the nasal cartilage removing the bulbous shape on the tip, and decreased the size to match her facial profile.
I’ve heard of different types of rhinoplasty such as “open” and “closed”. How do I know which one is right for me?
Closed rhinoplasty is performed to hide scars as all incisions are made from the inside of the nose. Open rhinoplasty utilizes the whole nose for making the best incisions to meet your goals.
The issue with closed rhinoplasty is that it limits the surgeon in utilizing the best techniques. As such, many surgeons prefer the open rhinoplasty method as it gives them free reign to craft the perfect nose. However, depending on certain factors closed may still be preferred. All of this information is discuss in full detail during a consultation.
Will I have scars after my surgery?
This is always a major concern for any plastic surgery procedure. As mentioned earlier, I have perfected my trade in staying up-to-date with the best practices aimed at two aspects: minimal scarring and reduced recovery times. The patients I have worked on have all been extremely happy with their results with little cause of concern for scarring.
How long should I expect to be out of work for rhinoplasty?
You should plan to rest and relax for at least one week following your procedure, or until the bandage is removed. Rhinoplasty is a procedure that results in bruising and swelling where certain actions such as blowing the nose will be painful. Recovery is quick and speedy as long as you follow your surgeon’s directions.
Physical exertion is not something you should partake in for at least a month. If you have a job that requires heavy lifting or other physical exertion, then you will have to prepare some time off in order to promote successful healing.
He left no questions unanswered
Self esteem? I never knew what that was. I mean, I never had any until after my rhinoplasty surgery. See, I was always the girl with her hair over her face. I would hear comments like, "The girl with the potato nose" or, "Oh yeah, she's pretty, but her nose". My nose was the first thing that stood out when I looked in the mirror. Ewh! There was no way to hide it. I hated it.
Then I met Dr. Golshani. Since the first day I walked into his office I felt right at home. All his staff and everyone at his office were very courteous. Dr. Golshani made me feel confident about my decision. He knew exactly what I wanted. He described the procedure in plain and simple words that I understood.
After doing my own research on rhinoplasty and going to several cosmetic surgeons, I made my decision as soon as I stepped out of Dr. Golshani's office. I knew he was the one. Right to the day of my surgery he made sure I was comfortable. He left no questions unanswered. Everyone at the surgical facility made me feel at ease. The nurse that was assigned to me was very nice and fulfilled all my needs.
Dr. Golshani is the best! I recommend him to anyone that is considering cosmetic surgery. My life has changed tremendously. I am very confident now. I can wear my hair up without feeling self-conscious about my looks. I love my side profile now. I am very happy with the results. I have no regrets.
