Nose Job Surgery – Septoplasty – Rhinoplasty Surgeons

At Elite Plastic Surgery, our Phoenix rhinoplasty surgeons, Drs. Torabi, consider cosmetic or corrective nose job surgery, an invasive procedure with minimal risks when performed by one of our highly rated, experienced doctors.

Even with small, subtle changes, cosmetic nose surgery can change the appearance of your whole face or facial profile. Our nose job surgeons can use their refined surgical skills and artistry of plastic surgery to increase or reduce the size, change the width or length of the nasal bridge or tip of the nose, reshape the nostrils, and even change the size of the space between the nose and the lip. Having trained with some of the top plastic surgeons, there are many different ways Drs. Torabi can improve your nose and help you achieve excellent results.

If you are coming from Scottsdale, Gilbert, Mesa, Glendale, Chandler, Paradise Valley, surrounding AZ areas or traveling to Elite Plastic Surgery from another state, during your nose job consultation at our office in Arizona, you can express your feelings about your nose and what you would like to change to get the best rhinoplasty results in Arizona. We will also discuss your ultimate goals for plastic surgery, as well as your ultimate rhinoplasty goals. Our plastic surgeon will perform an examination of your nose and facial features, take photos of your nose, and explain the different techniques, risks, limitations, and possible outcome you could achieve with your facial structure.

Rhinoplasty is usually performed as an out-patient procedure with the patient under local or general anesthesia. Each patient’s surgical experience will differ due to their individual needs and goals. There are a number of approaches and techniques that can be used during nose surgery, including open and closed rhinoplasty or a non-surgical nose job. When augmenting the nose, the surgeon can take cartilage from deep within the nose or the cartilage may be harvested from other areas of the body such as the ribs.


Depending on whether the patient needs open rhinoplasty or closed rhinoplasty, Drs. Torabi will decipher which incisions will be made.

This technique is more invasive but necessary for more drastic cosmetic needs. The incision is external. Of the 9 incisions which can be made for “open” rhinoplasty, the trans-columellar incision is the most common. It appears similar to an inverted “V” made at the columella, which is the central column of the nose which separates the nostrils. The inverted “V”, allows the scar to heal to become nearly invisible.
These incisions are made within the nasal passages to avoid any visible scarring. The endonasal approach is usually used for smaller, less drastic cosmetic changes in the nose.
After the incisions are made, excess bone cartilage will be removed if necessary for the desired appearance and function. In a large majority of patients, the dorsal hump is the area which needs reduction.
Patients often want tissue removed or added to their nose. Excessive tissue is often removed, but in some cases it needs to be added. When tissue needs to be added in the nose surgery, it may come from the nose, ear, ribs, or pelvis.
After the nose’s new structure has been achieved by adding and removing bone and cartilage, the skin is draped back over the restructure.
Incisions, whether internal or external, will be closed with “permanent” sutures which are typically removed within 5-10 days. Dissolvable sutures are also an option your plastic surgeons may recommend.


Rhinoplasty offers many benefits to patients looking to enhance their facial appearance. This procedure can be performed at any age however, it is suggested that children and teens wait to undergo this procedure until their facial growth is complete. Good candidates for rhinoplasty may have any of the following nasal issues:
    • A disproportionate nose
    • Deviated septum
    • Enlarged nasal tip
    • Excessively flared nostrils
    • Crooked or off-center nasal bridge


Rhinoplasty and Septoplasty recovery typically takes around 2-4 weeks, but some patients may heal in different time frames. Patients can expect to have swelling and bruising around the nose and eyes for approximately 2 – 3 weeks. Patients will need to keep their head above their chest to help improve swelling. Congestion is also common following rhinoplasty and may be caused by the splints and nasal packing worn the first few days post-surgery. After removing the splints, patients will be able to see and admire their newly shaped and contoured nose.


The nose is often considered a focal point of your face, which is why it is important to ensure that your nose complements your overall facial aesthetic. For patients considering rhinoplasty, whose nose crooks one way or the other or those suffering from injuries to the nose, rhinoplasty may be a good option. We strive to give every patient the look they desire with advanced techniques and surgical options to make sure your new nose meets your cosmetic goals.
