Rhinoplasty is an aesthetic treatment performed to change the shape and size of the nose. It may also help repair a functional or breathing issue in some patients. Board-certified cosmetic surgeons Dr. Erik Nuveen and Dr. Courtney Caplin are highly experienced physicians who are uniquely qualified to perform complex rhinoplasties. Using innovative techniques, they utilize a conservative approach to allow for the most beautiful and natural-looking results. Even though rhinoplasty consists of delicate changes, results tend to be very dramatic.

The goal is to allow for a more aesthetically appealing nose that meets your cosmetic desires and functions well.

HOW IS RHINOPLASTY DONE?
Adults and teenagers over 16 years of age are candidates for cosmetic nose surgery. If you are unhappy with the overall look of your nose and have distinct issues you hope to improve, enhance, or correct, this surgery may be the appropriate course of action. It's vital that expectations are discussed, as your nose and facial profile will be altered. Furthermore, facial growth and maturity should also be complete. Rhinoplasty is performed while the patient is under IV sedation or general anesthesia and is considered an outpatient surgical procedure. This treatment offers different surgical methods, depending on the specific patient case. Our team performs rhinoplasty using either a closed approach or an open method. The objective during surgery is to decrease or eliminate excess bone, cartilage, and tissue, or to build and increase cartilage for a new shape. The nose is repositioned and the skin is reformed and draped over the newly structured framework.
How much does rhinoplasty cost?
The cost of rhinoplasty varies based on what technique is used and the complexity of the procedure. Before estimating costs, Dr. Nuveen will listen to your needs and goals to help create your custom treatment plan. When this is done, he can go over costs for the facility, anesthesia, and more. To get your best results, it's better to focus on selecting an experienced surgeon, like Dr. Nuveen, instead of the lowest cost. To help make your surgery easy to afford, Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates accepts several payment methods, and our office can help you find low-interest financing.
Will my insurance cover functional nose surgery?
Although rhinoplasty to improve your appearance is not covered by insurance, if your nose reshaping surgery is considered medically necessary to improve your breathing, some of your costs may be covered by insurance. If you may be using your insurance, please tell Dr. Nuveen during your consultation. We can help you submit any needed information and paperwork to your insurance to properly process your claim.
Are there nonsurgical options to change my nose?
If you want to smooth lumps and bumps on your nose, a hyaluronic acid-based wrinkle filler (like JUVÉDERM® or Restylane®) may be an option. An injectable filler can temporarily improve minor imperfections on your nose, which may help you decide to proceed with rhinoplasty. Nose surgery is better for long-lasting results, larger changes, and improving the internal structure of the nose for better function. During your consultation, Dr. Nuveen can tell you more about nonsurgical nose reshaping.
What about ethnic rhinoplasty?
Ethnic rhinoplasty focuses on improving the appearance of the nose while still maintaining your cultural identity. This may be a concern if you are African-American, Asian, or Middle Eastern. In your consultation with Dr. Nuveen, you can talk about what you like about your nose and what you would like to change. This will allow him to personalize your treatment plan to give you your best results.
Can I combine nose surgery with other facial surgeries?
Some patients think about combining rhinoplasty with another procedure, like a chin or cheek augmentation. Combining surgeries for a dramatic result can be discussed during your consultation with Dr. Nuveen. Once he understands your concerns and goals, he can help you decide which procedures will be in your custom plan. Nose reshaping surgery can help your whole face appear more balanced, so you should wait to see your results before considering another procedure.
PUT YOUR BEST FACE FORWARD
