RHINOPLASTY & NOSE JOB PROCEDURES IN CLEVELAND

As you become older, your cheeks flatten, and your nose may begin to enlarge and droop. This is caused by loss of fullness in the midface and continual cartilage growth in the nose.

The nose is the most prominent facial feature. Cleveland Cosmetic Surgery offers rhinoplasty and nose jobs of different types to help with the appearance and function of your nose. Dr. Diamantis believes that “the perfect nose is a nose that isn’t noticed.” If you are unhappy with your nose, allow Dr. Diamantis to transform your nose with cosmetic nasal surgery, also known as rhinoplasty.

WHAT IS RHINOPLASTY?

Rhinoplasty, or a “Nose Job” is concerned with the external appearance, as well as the internal function, of your entire nose. The purpose of this procedure is to enhance your looks and to maintain, or improve, your ability to breathe through your nose. It can be performed to either decrease, or increase, the size of your nose in order to enhance facial harmony. It can also alter certain features of your nose, such as a large tip, a prominent hump, or asymmetry. The goal of a nose job is a nose that looks natural and blends harmoniously with your other facial features.

Dr. Diamantis’ sense of aesthetics, understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the nose, and technical abilities, are the most important determinants of the final appearance, and function, of your nose shaping procedure. Unfortunately, the final outcome is not completely under the control of the cosmetic surgeon. It will be influenced by variables such as thickness and shape of your bones and cartilage, quality and thickness of your skin, your overall facial shape, age and heredity factors. Dr. Diamantis has options to give you the best chance of success!

WE OFFER THE FOLLOWING TYPES OF RHINOPLASTY PROCEDURES:

SURGERY FOR THE TIP OF THE NOSE

If you believe the tip of your nose is too full, or too flat, or lacks projection, this can be reduced by removing cartilage from the inside of the nose. Projection can be extended by using cartilage from the ear, or nasal septum, and grafted to the tip of the nose. Nasal tip surgery allows you to have a narrower nose with a better defined tip!

Nasal tip surgery at Cleveland Cosmetic Surgery is performed at our accredited, state-of-the-art AAAHC office.

COLUMELLAR REDUCTION OR AUGMENTATION

The columella is the area under the nose between the nostrils. On some people, the columella sticks out from the underside of the nose, also called the hanging columella. This can be resolved by making a small incision inside the nose and lifting the columella, so it is less visible and protrusive.

DORSAL REDUCTION OR AUGMENTATION

Dorsal surgery involves manipulating the “bridge” of the nose. Some people tend to have a significant amount of cartilage on the bridge, which gives the nose a hump-like appearance. This can be easily remedied with dorsal reduction. An incision is made inside the nose, and the cartilage on the bridge, as well as bone of the nose, is reduced. The result is a smoother natural slope to the nose.

MINIMIZING NOSTRIL FLAIR

Another common concern people share about their nose pertains to the “flair,” or width of their nostrils. A narrow nose can be obtained with a procedure that removes tissues at the corners of the nostrils, called a Weir Excision. This procedure decreases the flare of the nostrils and creates a narrower looking nose. This procedure is often referred to as “minimizing wedges.”

RHINOPLASTY FOR BREATHING

Your ability to breathe depends in part on the anatomical configuration inside your nose—including the condition of the nasal septum (cartilage that divides your internal nose into two chambers, a left and a right). This also applies to the nasal turbinates (tissue along the sides of the nasal wall). 

Dr. Diamantis will examine the inside of your nose to determine the condition of your septum and turbinates. If your breathing may be improved by straightening your septum or reducing the size of your turbinates, Dr. Diamantis will recommend your best options.

Previous injuries, allergies, heredity, facial gestures and seasonal changes also influence your ability to breathe. If you have a breathing problem, Dr. Diamantis will evaluate these, and other factors, at the time of consultation. A nose job is performed as an outpatient procedure in the privacy of the Cleveland Cosmetic Surgery facilities.

THE EXPERIENCE

This procedure will be performed at our accredited Cleveland Cosmetic Surgery office. After your nose job, you’ll go home for a short period of rest, usually about 12 hours, followed by several days of recovery avoiding strenuous activities. Occasionally, a nasal splint is required to protect your new nose. Most patients return to work 7-10 days after the procedure.

RHINOPLASTY PATIENT TESTIMONIAL

Meet Krystal, 32

Performance artist, and feminist

“When I look in the mirror, I am unhappy with the size of my nose.”

Side profile headshot of patient Krystal before rhinoplasty.

BEFORE

Krystal is a free spirit who spends most of her free time performing. While she knows who she is, there are certain areas of her face that started to bother her. So, Dr. Diamantis recommended a specific rhinoplasty plan to address her concerns.

Krystal’s Recommended Treatments

  1. COSMETIC RHINOPLASTY to shape the nose into a more elegant form and conform the nose to fit her face.
  2. PRP to stimulate stem cells. Stem cells in turn stimulate the growth of collagen to help the body heal and regenerate more quickly.
  3. DERMABRASION to improve the appearance of skin texture, and is much more successful than microdermabrasion.

“My result is subtle yet elegant.” – Krystal

AFTER

Krystal felt her nose was slightly too strong for her face. After an evaluation with Dr. Diamantis, a treatment protocol was developed to soften the dorsal hump and slightly rotate the nasal tip. 

Krystal’s nose is now perfect; it’s exactly what she wanted. The result is subtle yet elegant. The postoperative course was much easier and she experienced much less discomfort than she expected.
