Rhinoplasty is one of the top five cosmetic surgeries performed in the United States. It's a general term that refers to a range of surgical procedures related to the nose. Cosmetic surgeons like Dr. Javad Sajan perform rhinoplasty to alter the shape of a client's nose for a more pleasing appearance in addition to correcting an existing or acquired nasal condition. See Dr. Sajan for some of the best results from a rhinoplasty Seattle can lay claim to.

Benefits of Rhinoplasty

Appearance is closely tied to one's emotional and physical well-being. The aging process continually alters the appearance of our features, including our nose. The change may play a significant part in restoring or enhancing overall appearance, self-confidence, and health. Our Seattle Rhinoplasty can redefine your nose to be in a more natural balance with your other facial features (without an obvious, surgically altered appearance).

You may struggle with breathing problems related to an existing or injury-caused distortion of the nose. One common misalignment is the "deviated septum," in which the bone and cartilage dividing the nose into left and right halves have become crooked or off-center. This deviation may adversely affect your breathing. Rhinoplasty can correct or adjust the degree of misalignment and improve the natural flow of air through the nostrils.

Cosmetic Imperfections a Nose Job Can Address

Dr. Sajan routinely performs rhinoplasty procedures to help his patients improve a wide range of cosmetic imperfections affecting the nose. Some of the most common flaws he treats are:

  • A nose that's too large, small or wide compared to your other facial features
  • A protruding, enlarged, bulbous or drooping nasal tip
  • A crooked or oddly positioned nose
  • A bump on the nasal bridge
  • Pinched or flared nostrils

Rhinoplasty and You

In most cases, rhinoplasty is an elective surgery. To help determine if rhinoplasty is right for you, ask yourself these questions:

  • What about your nose do you feel needs reshaping?
  • Have you developed breathing problems related to an injury?
  • Do you have difficulty breathing from one nostril (or both)?

Your answers, and additional information Dr. Sajan gathers from a thorough consultation, will help him develop a cosmetic and reconstructive surgery plan for improving your current features and/or breathing.

You can expect a substantial recovery period to be associated with your rhinoplasty. For the first few days, it's normal to experience pain, swelling, bruising and some bleeding. However, the discomfort should be manageable with pain medication prescribed by Dr. Sajan. During the initial recovery period, it's important to have a friend or family member stay with you, as performing certain tasks will be difficult. You'll also want to rest often, avoid strenuous exercise, apply cold compresses to minimize swelling and stay hydrated.

Within about one week, you'll return to Dr. Sajan's Seattle office so that he can check on your progress and remove your stitches. At that point, most of our patients feel well enough to return to work and resume their normal daily routine. However, it's important to continue to avoid strenuous activity, sports and heavy lifting for another couple of weeks to ensure that your nose is protected for the remainder of the healing process. During your post-operative appointments, Dr. Sajan and his team will offer additional, personalized guidance about your recovery period and timeline.
