Here at Dr. J’s Office, we are pleased to be able to offer you our high-quality rhinoplasty service. With the ability to change the shape of your nose, rhinoplasty is a very common procedure. With the ability to also help improve breathing, it’s no wonder that more and more people in Scottsdale are opting for the rhinoplasty procedure.
What is Rhinoplasty?
Also known as a “Nose job”, rhinoplasty is a procedure that can change the shape of the nose or help to make breathing easier. Occasionally, this procedure is undertaken for both reasons.
The top part of the nose consists of bone and the lower part is made up of cartilage. Rhinoplasty can be used to change one or all of these areas.
Please note, before you undergo this procedure, your doctor will consider all of your facial features. This is to make sure that your “new” nose matches your other facial features.
What Happens During the Procedure?
During the procedure, you will be given local anesthesia or general anesthesia. The type of anesthesia you will receive depends on your doctor’s preference and the complexity of your surgery.
– An incision
An incision will be made either between your nostrils or through an incision located at the base of the nose.
– Changing the shape of your nose
Your doctor is likely to change the shape of your nose or your cartridge in a specific way. The method used will depend upon how much of your nose needs to be added or taken away. It will also depend on the materials that they use during the surgery.
If your doctor is going to make small changes, they might use cartilage that is taken from your ear or inside your nose. If your doctor is going to make big changes, they might use some cartilage from your ribs or bone from other areas of your body.
– Deviated septum
If you have a deviated septum (A crooked or bent nose) the doctor might adjust your nose so that breathing is improved.
– The stitches
Once the doctor has completed the required changes, they will place the skin and the tissue back in place. Finally, the doctor will stitch your nose back together.
After the Rhinoplasty Surgery
Once you have undergone your rhinoplasty, you will need to make sure you give yourself time to recover. Most people can leave the hospital after their operation. However, if you have health conditions that require monitoring or you’re feeling very nauseous, you may need to stay in hospital overnight.
The recovery time is usually 7-10 days. You will, therefore, need to take at least one week off work and your other obligations. This is to ensure that you recover properly. The good news is that during the first week after the surgery it’s likely that you will feel better every day.
Your nose is likely to swell after the surgery. In some cases, it might be months before the swelling completely disappears. The good news is that you should be able to return back to most of your usual activities after the first week. You should be able to return to all of your activities within 2-4 weeks. However, everyone recovers at a different rate so you mustn’t assume you have fully recovered for at least a few months.
Risks Associated with Rhinoplasty
As with any surgery, there are risks associated with rhinoplasty. The good news is that these risks are quite small. However, you should always speak to your doctor about the risks and any concerns that you may have. Do not worry, your doctor will be more than happy to talk with you about the risks and concerns.
Am I a Suitable Candidate for Rhinoplasty?
If you are considering undergoing rhinoplasty, you should make sure that you are a suitable candidate. Those who are likely to be suitable for this procedure are;
Patients who have no serious illness or medical conditions
Patients who have realistic goals
Patients who do not smoke or can show that they can stop smoking
You will need to speak with the nose surgery doctor before you undergo the rhinoplasty procedure. This will ensure that you are a suitable candidate and that any medical concerns you have are accounted for.

Dr. J fixed a terrible scar on my face left by a dermatologist. His expertise made the process as pleasant as possible. His staff was wonderful and caring.

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!!

Dr. Jacobsen and his staff did such an amazing job taking care of me. Went in for my consultation on Tuesday and they were able to get me in surgery by Thursday. By far the best prices in the valley after searching everywhere! Incredible care! I have referred all my friends to Dr. Jacobsen!

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.
