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.

The Science Behind Facial Balance

Your facial features are unique to you. Dr. Sajan has a deep understanding of facial balance and the ideal facial feature size, shape, and contour that sends the right signals. Human beings prefer attractive faces; this is not in question. The perfect size, shape, and form of an altered nose must be carefully planned so the final result is an enhancement for your other features. When a surgeon removes too much tissue and cartilage, the result can look unnatural and in the end may require a revision surgery. It is far better to get the surgery performed right – the first time.

Balanced Facial Features are More Appealing

Facial beauty (or handsome male facial features) is associated with balance, harmony, and symmetry. A nose that is out of balance can make the other features less appealing. People are hardwired to respond more positively to attractive features, and altering the nose structure can produce a significant change in your quality of life.

With features balanced correctly, most people notice that others respond to them more positively. Your facial structure will be carefully evaluated prior to the procedure. The goal is to create the most harmonious new structure – one that enhances your other features and your overall appeal.

Facial Symmetry Matters.

Any nose surgery should be performed by a skilled plastic surgeon who is known for creating the right shape, size, and contour to match and enhance your other facial features. Some patients may choose to alter nose size and contour, enhancing the chin size to create the look that is universally recognized as being attractive, with the right balance between upper and lower face and the perfectly-sized nose and nostril shape.

Facial symmetry is a key factor in beauty – and any person who has an asymmetrical nose can greatly enhance facial appearance and quality of life with improved balance and harmony. Dr. Sajan is known for his ability to shape the nose to achieve the most appealing look, including in carefully performed ethnic rhinoplasty procedures.

Artistry in Nose Recontouring

Every patient is unique, and the nose contour created in surgery should bring out the other facial features, while looking perfectly natural. If you have a specific nose shape you like, please feel free to bring a picture of what you envision for yourself. Some patients can achieve more symmetry with a “non-surgical rhinoplasty,” a procedure in which dermal fillers are used, rather than surgery. Others may require a more extensive surgical procedure.

Surgical Skills Are Critical in Performing a Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is one of the most delicate and difficult of all facial surgeries. For beautiful results, you want to choose a highly-skilled, respected plastic surgeon. Look over our “before and after” images to see pictures of other patients who have undergone the procedure. Whether you have an overlarge or exceptionally wide nose, large nostrils, a drooping tip, a bump on the bridge of your nose, or your nose is asymmetrical, Dr. Sajan is here to help you look like yourself – just more attractive.

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.
