Rhinoplasty Myths: Debunked

Think you know about rhinoplasty? Many of the things you’ve heard may not actually be true. One of the best ways to learn about this complex procedure is to schedule a rhinoplasty consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Sajjadian. He holds certification from 3 prestigious medical boards and is an experienced member of the Rhinoplasty Society. He has been involved in teaching rhinoplasty in major plastic surgery meetings around the globe and in U.S. for many years. He can help you understand your options when it comes to nose surgery.

Let’s clear up some of the common rhinoplasty myths. Which of these have you heard?

Rhinoplasty Is One Size Fits All

Rhinoplasty is a complex surgery with many variables. Nose structure can vary greatly from one patient to another. The ideal end result isn’t just an attractive nose, but a nose that complements the facial features, both in size and shape. There is no one perfect nose and not every nose will work with every face. Dr. Sajjadian can create a beautiful, complementary nose that functions well.

This is one reason that choosing a highly skilled rhinoplasty surgeon is essential. You need a surgeon with a deep understanding of facial anatomy and the structure of the nose. While this is important for all patients, it is critical for patients considering ethnic rhinoplasty due to the additional complexities that non-Caucasian noses may possess. Choosing the right surgeon can help you reduce the possibility of revision rhinoplasty later.

Rhinoplasty Is the Only Way to Change the Size/Shape of My Nose

Rhinoplasty is a dramatic surgical transformation, but it isn’t the only way to change the appearance of your nose. Dr. Sajjadian performs non-invasive nasal correction using dermal fillers. These temporary fillers are injected to the nose to sculpt and shape, without downtime or surgery. The results aren’t permanent, retreatment is necessary to maintain results, but this is an alternative to rhinoplasty for some patients.

Everyone Will Know You’ve Had Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty can look surprisingly natural if you choose the right surgeon. Rhinoplasty incisions are typically hidden either inside of the nostrils or along the columella (the strip of skin separating the nostrils). The right nose shape also helps to create a natural look. The goal isn’t a perfect, celebrity nose, but rather a nose that complements your look. Dr. Sajjadian is world renown for creating natural looking rhinoplasty results that patients love.

Only Women Get Rhinoplasty

While many plastic surgery procedures are primarily performed on women, rhinoplasty is one that is popular with both sexes. Last year 25% of the rhinoplasties performed in the U.S. were performed on male patients. Dr. Sajjadian often performs male rhinoplasties. Male or female, you deserve to look great and the right nose can help you achieve that goal.

Rhinoplasty Isn’t Very Common

If you think you’re one of the only people considering a nose job, think again. This procedure is one of the most common surgical cosmetic procedures (#2 most popular, right behind breast augmentation). Last year 217,000 rhinoplasty procedures were performed in the U.S.
