The nose is such a strong factor in creating balance and harmony among your facial features. Your nose is the central and most prominent feature of the face, so its shape and size can enhance personal beauty and facial balance. Many patients 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. Volumes of text have been written about features that make a nose beautiful or aesthetically unpleasing. What’s more important though, is how you feel about your nose and how you want your nose to look.
When the nose is out of proportion with the rest of your facial features, it can negatively influence someone’s self-image and self-confidence. Additionally, an irregular nose can cause medical problems with normal nasal function. A chronically obstructed nasal airway can significantly affect your life-style, sleep cycle, and overall health. Rhinoplasty - or a nose job - is surgery to enhance the shape, size, and structure of your nose.
What a Rhinoplasty Involves
The nose is a very subjective feature, and each person has their own idea of what they want the nose to look like. For some, Dr. Golshani includes removal of a large nasal hump or mild lifting of a down-turned tip. Other enhancements are subject to the keen eyes of the patient, the plastic surgeon, and 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, and experience in performing hundreds of possible steps to achieve a desired outcome that can last a lifetime.
Choosing to have Rhinoplasty
Whether you have a personal desire to improve your appearance, improve breathing function, or are self-conscious about the size or shape of your nose, plastic surgery of the nose, or rhinoplasty, may be right for you. This nose improvement surgery can enhance facial symmetry, straighten a crooked nose, correct for breathing abnormalities, or reduce the size of an overly large nose. Functional corrective procedures such as septoplasty or submucous turbinate resection often complement aesthetic rhinoplasty to achieve improved function and well-being in the patient.
Getting started with a Rhinoplasty
The first step in achieving the results you desire from nose surgery in Beverly Hills is a personalized consultation with Dr. Daniel Golshani M.D. Consultations include an evaluation of your individual case addressing both aesthetics and nasal airway function, a discussion of your goals for your nose, the options available for surgery of the nose including both "Closed" and "Open" Rhinoplasty techniques, the possible outcomes of surgery, risks or potential complications, and the course of treatment that may be most beneficial to you.
Dr. Daniel Golshani performs a large number of first time and revisional rhinoplasty procedures using closed or open rhinoplasty techniques. He is regarded by his patients for his deep attention to detail and true ability to create what that patient wants.
"I am so glad I did this, I now have the face I have always dreamed of. Dr. Golshani is a true artist."
Benefits of Rhinoplasty Surgery:
- Greatly enhances self-confidence and self-esteem
- Corrects breathing abnormalities caused by shape, size, and position of nose
- Better sleep as a result of better breathing
- More balanced, attractive appearance of the face
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 their stories with you.
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-shaping the nostrils to give her the nose she had always wanted. Onced her nose healed up you couldn't even tell that she’d had any work done.
This patient noted that her nose did not match her face, 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 sometimes preferred because all incisions are made from the inside of the nose. Open rhinoplasty opens the whole nose, although this still just results in one small visible incision. In most cases, this incision fades to be almost invisible. The disadvantage of closed rhinoplasty is that it limits the surgeon in utilizing the best technique because of decreased access to the nose. Dr. Golshani will recommend open or closed rhinoplasty after he talks with you in detail at your nose job consultation.
Will I have scars after my surgery?
Scars are always a major concern of patients when having any plastic surgery procedure. Fortunately, rhinoplasty scars are almost completely invisible. This is true even with open rhinoplasty, when the surgery is performed and closed by a true expert like Dr. Golshani. Dr. Golshani has perfected his trade by staying up-to-date with the best practices aimed at two aspects: minimal scarring and reduced recovery times.
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 can be painful. You should plan to give yourself at least a month until you resume any physical exertion. If you have a job that requires heavy lifting or other physical efforts, then you will have to plan for some extra time off in order to allow for successful healing. You should also not run or perform high-impact activities until you are healed. Recovery is relatively quick as long as you follow your surgeon’s directions. When the post-op instructions are followed, rhinoplasty is not a particularly uncomfortable recovery process.
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.
Very Professional and Very Kind
I had my initial consultation. I really appreciated how Dr. Golshani took the time to go over my medical history. He took the time to answer all of my questions, as did his assistant. They were both very professional and very kind. By the end of my consultation I felt I could trust Dr. Golshani and his team to take the best care of me.
