Rhinoplasty is surgery to reshape or reduce the size of the nose. Even when done very moderately, rhinoplasty can dramatically change the appearance of one’s face for the better.

Rhinoplasty (Nose Job) Overview

Rhinoplasty, more commonly known as a nose job, is a precise surgical technique that adjusts the size or shape of the nose to make it more pleasing. While rhinoplasty is typically done for cosmetic reasons, it can also be done to improve the breathing function of the nose. One such example is the correction of a deviated septum that can contribute to limited airflow through the nasal cavity.

Whatever the purpose, a proper rhinoplasty requires extensive planning. This surgical procedure is unique because it produces the least amount of change in physical tissue, but it produces one of the most dramatic changes in physical appearance. For this reason, Dr. Esmailian will talk with you at great length to ensure there is total understanding between doctor and patient.

The Rhinoplasty (Nose Job) Procedure In Orange County

Every rhinoplasty is unique, and there are no set steps. Each procedure delivered by Dr. Esmailian is 100% unique to cater to the patient’s goals and anatomy. The two primary techniques for rhinoplasty are closed rhinoplasty and open rhinoplasty. An open rhinoplasty is the traditional method, with an incision made in the columella and the skin pulled back to allow Dr. Esmailian to reshape the nose. A closed rhinoplasty, also known as endonasal rhinoplasty, uses incisions made inside the nostrils, leaving no visible trace of a scar.

Dr. Esmailian will use the endonasal technique wherever possible. Regardless of the incision used, the purpose of a rhinoplasty is to reshape the underlying cartilage. Removing cartilage is one of the main ways in which this is done. Dr. Esmailian uses specialized tools and precision techniques to gently shape the cartilage of the nose into a pleasing shape. He can also reshape the nose by adding cartilage where it is needed.

He does this by taking cartilage from another part of the body and placing it under the skin of the nose to create desired contours. A rhinoplasty is not a procedure to be taken lightly. It requires delicacy and finesse for the best possible outcome. Dr. Esmailian takes the time and care required to give his patients the result they want. This is shown by his patients’ total satisfaction following each rhinoplasty he’s delivered, calling it the best rhinoplasty Orange County offers. Call us to find out more or to set an appointment.

The Ideal Nose

Ideally, the nose should be proportionate to the other features of the face, allowing each facial feature to receive equal attention; thus, promoting facial harmony.

Nasal Features Commonly Addressed with Rhinoplasty

An individual whose nose has an elongated tip that plunges downward toward his or her lips (especially when he or she smiles) has what is referred to as a droopy tip. Dr. Esmailian can correct a droopy tip with a rhinoplasty procedure at his facility in Orange County. During the procedure, Dr. Esmailian shortens the nose and rotates the tip upward.

Hump Reduction or Removal

A rhinoplasty procedure can reduce or remove a hump that rests on the bridge of the nose.

Narrowing the Nose: During a rhinoplasty, Dr. Esmailian can narrow the nostrils, the bridge, or both: The narrowing of the nose often enhances facial definition.

The majority of people want a thin, proportional nose. Dr. Esmailian assists his patients in attaining their ideal nose through rhinoplasty at his facility in Orange County. During a rhinoplasty, Dr. Esmailian reshapes the cartilage in the nose. He can correct a boxy or bulbous nose tip. By defining the tip of the nose, he gives his patient an elegantly refined nose; thus, improving the shape of his or her face.

Rhinoplasty to Address Breathing Problems

Although rhinoplasty is a cosmetic procedure, it can also be used to address structural issues affecting the airways. There are several physiological conditions that cause nasal airways to become blocked; thus, making it difficult to breathe. Dr. Esmailian frequently performs rhinoplasty procedures at his facility in Orange County to correct these underlying structural problems.
