What Is Involved In A Rhinoplasty Surgery?


Rhinoplasty involves surgery that changes the nose’s shape. The procedure is often carried out to help improve breathing, to change the nose’s shape, or both. Bone, skin, cartilage, or all three can be changed during the Scottsdale rhinoplasty procedure. The procedure itself will have an impact on your whole face. In fact, the changes can make you look quite different. 

Crooked noses can become straightened, large or long noses can be made smaller. Once the procedure has taken place and you’re completely healed, your nose can look much better. This can work wonders for your self-esteem, especially if you have been conscious of your nose. 


Are You A Good Candidate For Rhinoplasty? 

After The SurgeryIt’s not always easy to say who is a good candidate for rhinoplasty. This is because the procedure will be different for everyone. Please make sure that if you undergo surgery, you’re doing it for yourself. It’s important that you realize this as surgery can occasionally be permanent. In addition to this, a nose that has a more natural shape will be more aesthetically pleasing. 


Good candidates for rhinoplasty are: 

  • People who are physically healthy – If you have any physical health concerns, you might be asked to wait until you are healthier before going under the knife. 
  • People who do not smoke – There are additional risks associated with smoking and any type of surgery. Some surgeons might ask you to quit smoking for at least 3 months before you have surgery.
  • Adults who have finished growing – If you’re still growing, there’s always a chance that your face will change its shape. This is why it is important that you wait until after you have finished growing. 
  • People who have realistic goals and wish to improve their appearance while knowing that rhinoplasty has its limitations. 
  • People who have had a little trouble breathing due to the position of their nose. Please note, your doctor might need to consider other procedures before recommending rhinoplasty. However, this is not always the case.

If you are not sure whether you are a good candidate for rhinoplasty, please contact us. All of our team is highly experienced. They can help you to understand whether you’re a good candidate. If they don’t think you are, they will discuss your options with you. 

We only ever want to offer rhinoplasty and other types of surgery to people who are good candidates. 


About Our Rhinoplasty Procedure 

An incisionBefore the procedure takes place, you will need to meet with your surgeon to discuss a few factors. 

You will need to:

  • Discuss your medical history 
  • Have a physical examination that may include a blood test 
  • Take photographs of your nose from a range of angles 
  • Discuss your expectations 

As soon as the rhinoplasty procedure has been scheduled, you’ll need to organize how you will travel home after the procedure. 

  • During the procedure 

Please note, you will need to have anesthesia. This can be administered via general anesthesia or sedation. 

The procedure will be undertaken by either making a small incision in your nose or inside your nose. The surgeon could readjust the cartilage and/or the bone under the skin. Depending on how much bone and/or cartilage needs removing, the surgeon could make large or small changes. 

If you’re undergoing a large change, cartilage might be taken from your rib or other parts of your body. The skin and tissue will be placed back and stitches will be added.

If you’re undergoing a small change, cartilage might be taken from your nose or your ear. 

If you have a deviated septum, the surgeon could correct it so that it’s easier for you to breathe. 

  • After the procedure 

Once you have undergone the procedure, you will need bed rest. You should make sure that your head is always higher than your chest. This will ensure swelling and bleeding are reduced. 

Any internal dressings will need to be left in from one to seven days. You might also have a splint for extra support and protection. The splint could be in place for one week. 

It’s common for you to experience slight bleeding. There might also be some mucus draining away. 

Don’t worry, your surgeon will tell you what you should do to improve your chances of recovery. Please always follow any instructions that you are given. 

If, at any time after the procedure you have questions or are concerned about anything, please contact us. We are here to help you before, during, and after your rhinoplasty procedure. We want you to be happy every step of the way.

  • Dr. J has an amazing personality and the surgery was quick, painless, and perfect. I didn’t even need to take any painkillers after I woke up. I look and feel so much better. Would highly recommend him to anyone considering surgery. The staff was also incredibly easy to work with. All around great office energy and the medical staff at the surgery center are so sweet.

  • I’m 9 days post op and I’m very happy with the results so far (still healing). Dr. J is easy to talk to. I went in for a consult and was able to schedule the procedure for the very next week. All went very well. I was so afraid to remove the bandages - I was expecting a bloody/bruised mess. I was pleasantly surprised to see tiny incisions with no scabbing or bruising. I’m very impressed.

  • Enjoyed meeting and working with Dr. J. I had an eye lift and it was a pleasant experience from start to finish. Dr. J’s bed side manner is very personable and genuine. He explained everything step by step and made the procedure very painless. Even though I’m from Minnesota - I will be coming to Dr. J for any future cosmetic surgical needs. I cannot recommend Dr. J enough.

  • What a brilliant human! I’m so thankful for finding this amazing genius. I’ve struggled with skin sagging since my weight loss surgery. My arms were my nemesis, I have other skin removal surgeries to have in the future but my arms were really my starting point and I had went to try to freeze the remaining stubborn fat and skin to hopefully shrink. Yeah that didn’t work. Then I found this guy, he’s awesome, his staff is awesome and professional and I cannot say thank you enough to this life changing leap into the rest of my journey. I truly and blessed to have had the opportunity to be able to experience the joy he has for his craft. He has truly changed my life. Thank you Dr. J.

  • I, Theresa Buschbacher, prepared this review and submitted it on my husband,s account. Superb, Excellent, Caring, Compassionate, Knowledgeable, Experienced, these are all descriptive terms that one must earn. Dr.J has completely filled the requirements of each and every of these terms and they can all equally be applied to him. His knowledge immediately puts you at ease (and when what he says will happen does actually happen, you get a big smile inside and you know you have a relationship with an excellent doctor)! Now for the support staff, they relate to you and express a genuine concern for what you are going through. They work with you and put you at ease while accomplishing what is needed for the “business end” of the doctor’s office. This is a WINNER!!

  • This will be a long review but worth the read! I'm beyond impressed with the overall quality, cleanliness, prices, customer service and results. First impressions, their branding of their classy theme provided an elegance that I felt right at home. I felt like a king who was going to get the best treatment! Secondly, very clean... I mean this place was immaculate! You can tell these folks worked hard to build their business and put in the work to upkeep it! As a business owner myself I applaud the way they conduct their business and never loose their family values, that caring, compassionate, family oriented value that most businesses start off with but loose over time. I can tell that money is not their passion. Their customers results are, the smiles and cries one has when they see their results. I was terrified of anesthesia, and when I expressed my concerns about my PTSD the surgeon, anesthesiologist and staff all took the time to sit with me and listen to me then proceed with a break down of how well they were going to take care of me and make sure I have the best experience possible. In which I certainly did! And best part I didn't wake up out of it, scared, panicking or anything like that. I was a little tired of course, but I went live for my fans soon as I got in the car. I felt comfortable the entire time I was waiting and when my nerves were really high I was honest and told them. They put in the extra love to make sure I was ok. When I went back and they gave me whatever magical cocktail, I felt as my procedure was 4 seconds. I didn't wake up during surgery, didn't hear anything nor wake up in pain! Everything they could have possibly done right they absolutely did! I felt safe too. And when I had questions after they were great about responding and following up. The cleanliness was great, and they took all precautions during this time of COVID-19. I knew the day I met Dr. Jacobson during my consultation that he had to be my surgeon! I hope this review helps viewers make that final decision on choosing Dr. Jacobson as their surgeon and if anyone has questions you are more then welcome to ask and I will answer to the best of my abilities? Thank you Dr. Jacobson and your staff?? my results are incredible! And I'm not even fully healed yet and I can't stop staring at my chest! It's a dream come true and it wouldn't have be possible without you and your staff. God bless!

  • Dr J is absolutely brilliant. His office and staff are out of this world and his demeanor is so friendly and up beat. He makes you feel like you are in the best possible hands... And you are! The Surgeon I met with before I saw Dr J told me I would need a general anesthetic for my surgery and likely a skin graft. I was terrified. Went to Dr J for a second opinion and he was totally nonchalant about what needed to be done. He did it a week later in his office with just some local freezing and it was amazing! No problems at all. I would never see another Dr for surgery. Dr J is truly above the rest! Even his peers give him awards. His office is full of them! Big hugs to him and his staff for turning this in a happy ending from a scary start.
