What is rhinoplasty exactly? Let's address a few details: rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, modifies the size or shape of the nose. It can also be performed to correct a disruption to your breathing. Our strategy at SSK Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach, CA is to try to achieve your desirable outcome without a noticeable scar. Most of the structures shaping the nose can be approached via small incisions made inside the nose, which are not seen from the outside. In certain cases, a tiny incision at the thinnest portion of the columella (the skin between nose and mouth) is made to help better visualize nasal tip structures when needed. If we need extra cartilage while reshaping the nose, we will take it from your nasal septum, ear, or, in rare cases, rib. During rhinoplasty, autologous fat or synthetic fillers could be used to augment this area and others nearby of concern, such as the lips. Board-certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Sean Kelishadi can discuss all the various details and techniques that can be used to improve your nose during your initial consultation. Your Orange County rhinoplasty could also be a good time to add another procedure, such as chin augmentation to balance your proportions.
"Dr. Kelishadi is amazing!!! He made me feel so comfortable! I had Breast Augmentation May 26th. I'm three months out and loving my results! I was very self conscious about my chest. My breasts shrunk due to breast feeding. I didn't even want to change in front of my husband. (he loved them no matter what lol) and now I am feeling so great about it! He said he's even noticed a boost in my confidence level. I love it! i feel good..i feel sexy. I never thought I would actually go through with getting this done, but Dr. Kelishadi and his staff helped me with every step of the way. He was very caring and checked up on me after surgery. His staff was very nice as well. All so helpful! I highly recommend him!"- J.V. / Yelp / Jul 27, 2017

"This is a review from the husband of a patient of a mommy makeover...That being said, I felt like I was the patient of Dr Kelishadi because he treated me that way. He kept me informed. He asked if I had any questions. He went out of his way to text me outside of office visits. He cares about his patients and their significant others. Now about his work: amazing. He kept telling me I'd love it. I sort of brushed it off because of the unknown, but can say 10000000% he was right. He has given my wife unbelievable confidence and selfishly I am having a TON of fun with her (Good thing I'm snipped). Pre surgery he was amazing, and post surgery the first thing he did was find me in the lobby to walk me through everything. He would text me randomly to check in and prepared us for the fun journey we went on. The whole process honestly made our marriage stronger and I owe it to Dr Kelishadi for preparing me to be strong for my wife and prepare her to be able to enjoy the adventure.If you're on the fence or hesitant, I assure you he is worth every penny. Best experience! AND GO LAKERS!"- J.C. / Google / Feb 04, 2019
Is your nose the first and last thing some folks seem to see on your face? Do you think it should be larger or smaller, straightened, narrowed or widened, smoothed, or otherwise reshaped to fit your face for an appealing profile? If your nose is unbalanced in size or shape against your other facial features, whether congenitally or accidentally, it may be keeping others from realizing the attractiveness of your eyes or your smile. You want your features to harmonize and show the best you. Your aesthetic concerns may have underlying functional problems that affect your breathing.
During the procedure, patients are usually placed under general anesthesia. We carefully confine most incisions to the inside of the nose whenever we can and hide external incisions as well as possible. Bruising and swelling, maybe only beneath the eyes, are normal for such a delicate area of the face. A light splint on your nose for a week will maintain the intended shape and minimize swelling, but there will not be any dressings inside your nose.
Meanwhile, if Orange County Plastic Surgeon Dr. Kelishadi placed sutures, he will remove them on Day 4. Many patients return to school and/or less strenuous aspects of their jobs in 1 to 2 weeks while the bruising and swelling dissipate. You may return to strenuous activities in several weeks. You will see the final result of your nose job surgery in 6 to 12 months.
