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
"Dr. Kelishadi is amazing! I love how attentive he is and gives you great advice on what you should get done or shouldn't. I've been to different surgeon offices and I always find myself booking another appointment with his office instead. The ladies at his office are another reason why I keep coming as well, such sweet and friendly ladies. I love how Every time I come they are super welcoming and I don't feel like I'm being judged! I've been to Offices before where I feel like I'm bugging the staff or when I'm asking questions they answer very annoyed. Here! They answer all your questions with concern and very kindly. Thank you Shae & Alex for being great customer service representatives & following up on my appointment reminders! I've had a hydra facial + Vivace done at his office. Which I definitely recommend, I should probably book another hydra-facial while I'm writing this review. Also, I've had my breast done elsewhere but will be contacting Dr. K once I'm ready for new boobies. I'll be referring all my clients, friends, staff, and family to Dr. Kelishadi FIVE STARS FROM ISABELLA"- I.C. / Yelp / Jun 21, 2019

"I initially was drawn to SSK because of a promotion for their hydra facial. I met Shay and Alejandra who helped me understand the benefits of hydra facials. My complimentary hydra facial at their open house promotion was awesome!! I joined the SSK Club and now treat myself to monthly hydra facials at a reduced rate. My skin is glowing! I feel taken care of at SSK, and Shay and Alejandra make sure I feel this way. I've even tried the micro needling technique offered by Dr. Kellishadi which has taken my glow to a new level. Dr. Kellishadi obviously truly cares about his patients because he's interested in what's best for ME and not just what will make his cash flow grow. He said I don't need surgery to look great at my age. I'm 55. Most plastic surgeons would jump on the opportunity to talk a 55-year-old woman into chasing a youthful look through a face lift or some other expensive surgery. He spent the time to talk with me about my life goals and what makes me feel happy and alive, and we BOTH decided that going under the knife isn't what is best for me. I choose to maintain my best look by non-invasive procedures such as hydra facials and micro needling. Dr. Kellishadi cares about my satisfaction and happiness with SSK services despite the fact that I'm the opposite of a "high ticket" client. Because of this, I'm now a loyal customer."- C.S. / Yelp / Apr 19, 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.
