If you are unhappy with the appearance of your nose, or you would like to breathe more freely, our Marina del Rey rhinoplasty with Dr. Luis Macias can help.


What is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that is designed to reshape the nasal structure and create a more balanced and attractive face. Also known as nose surgery or a “nose job,” the procedure can be life-changing for patients of many ages.

What Can Nose Surgery Do For You?

There are many ways Dr. Macias can perform nose surgery to give our Redondo Beach patients more harmonious faces. For example, the surgery can be customized to:

  • Enhance tip projection
  • Narrow the hump
  • Improve breathing
  • Repair a nasal injury
  • Revise a previous nose job
  • Augment a weak or recessed chin

The Procedure

Dr. Macias performs rhinoplasty procedures in the operating room under general anesthesia. The procedure time is generally two to three hours, but it may vary depending on the extent of the surgery. To begin, Dr. Macias will create an incision either inside the nose or along the columella, which is the strip of tissue that separates the nostrils.

Through those openings, he will raise the cartilage and bones and gently reshape the nasal structure. This may involve removing bone or cartilage, or grafting cartilage to the area. If you have a deviated septum, he will straighten it to improve breathing. Dr. Macias will then close the incisions and place splints and gauze in the nose to promote healing.

Recovery

The recovery process is typically seven days, at which time the splints and any sutures are removed. You can expect some bruising that may last another week and swelling that may persist a bit longer.

Am I a Candidate?

If your nose has stopped growing and you are in good general health, nose surgery in Marina del Rey may be a way to accomplish your aesthetic goals and feel more confident about your looks. In addition, you should have realistic expectations about what the procedure can accomplish.

FAQ Rhinoplasty

How much does rhinoplasty cost?

According to 2017 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the national average surgeon’s fee for rhinoplasty is $5,125. However, this will vary depending on your surgeon’s experience and your location.

What are the risks?

When performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon, nose surgery is very safe. Though risks are rare, they may include an adverse reaction to anesthesia, infection, poor scarring, nasal septal perforation, an undesired cosmetic outcome, and more.
