RHINOPLASTY

WHAT IS RHINOPLASTY?

As a focal point of the face, the nose has an undeniable influence on your appearance. Even small changes to the structure, shape, or size of the nose can create major improvements to facial harmony and self-confidence. Fellowship-trained plastic surgeon Dr. Prem Tripathi performs rhinoplasty for Livermore, San Ramon, and Dublin, CA, area men and women seeking balanced facial proportions and contours.

Using an aesthetic approach that honors and highlights each person’s unique features, Dr. Tripathi creates meticulous, customized improvements that help his patients look and feel like the best versions of themselves.

Rhinoplasty, also called nose surgery or a “nose job,” is a facial plastic surgery procedure designed to improve the appearance of the nose. Rhinoplasty can:

  • Reduce a prominent hump

  • Narrow a wide nasal bridge

  • Correct a crooked nasal bridge

  • Reshape the tip of the nose

  • Correct breathing issues

  • Shorten a long nose

Overall, the goal of rhinoplasty is to create a more proportional appearance and balanced facial features. Dr. Tripathi may recommend combining your rhinoplasty with a facial implant or dermal filler injections to further balance out your profile.

Who Is a Candidate for Rhinoplasty? Should I Get a Nose Job?

It’s best to wait to pursue rhinoplasty until your facial features are fully developed, which is often around 17 years old. When you consult with Dr. Tripathi, you’ll discuss your concerns and goals for your nose to determine whether rhinoplasty is the right choice for you.

How Is Rhinoplasty Done?

Rhinoplasty takes 2 to 4 hours and is typically performed while you are under general anesthesia or deep sedation. Dr. Tripathi performs 2 types of rhinoplasty procedures:

Closed rhinoplasty: Through incisions hidden inside the nostrils, Dr. Tripathi reshapes the nasal cartilage, bones, and soft tissues.Open rhinoplasty: This approach uses a small, inconspicuous incision along the columella (the tissue between the nostrils) to allow for better visibility needed to make more complex corrections.

Dr. Tripathi will discuss both options during your consultation to determine which may be a better fit for your goals.
