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.
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.
I never write reviews because its very hard to impress me, but this time i had to. I had breast lift + implant exchange with Dr. Kelishadi less than 3 weeks ago and I can already tell he has done an excellent job, i absolutely love my results. However I want to dedicate this review mostly to the actual clinic and stuff, because I am very impressed, especially when comparing to other plastic surgeon practices. First of all, Dr. Kelishadi is very welcoming and takes his time (exactly 1 hour) during the consultation to explain everything and answer all the questions to the last detail. I could immediately tell he knows what is he doing and when I left his clinic I canceled all my other consultations I had scheduled because I knew I will choose Dr. Kelishadi 100%. All the other stuff is also very friendly, from the receptionist Valerie to all the nurses and also his wife, who is a pharmacist there and will be explaining all the medication. NOW - the most important thing that made a difference for me was the fact that they will provide you with a huge bag full of necessary items, as well as all the medication you will need, WITHOUT ANY ADDITIONAL CHARGES!!! Yes, i know its most likely included in the total price I paid for the surgery, but trust me it feels nice when you know that you dont need to worry about other expenses and you are just ready to go. I am saying this because I actually just booked rhinoplasty with a different doctor, paying 22k and they still made me pay extra for the medication and tried to sell me a scar gel for additional 65$, which Dr. Kelishadi also already includes in his package. The rhinoplasty practice is also making me do 2 covid pcr tests which needs to be done at their dedicated lab ($150each). I didnt have to deal with any of this at SSK surgery, and I just want to say that this is not about the money but about the overall experience and small details like this that make you feel like they actually value you and they are not just trying to sell you things. Dr. Kelishadi and his stuff made me feel safe and I can tell they really value their patients. I live almost 2 hours away from Newport Beach but it was definitely worth the drive and I will definitely choose Dr. Kelishadi again for more procedures if I need to. Also, the price is direct equivalent of his work (and I would even say he could charge more) so dont be cheap because then you will have to go redo your surgery anyway and pay more for reconstruction.
Get In Touch
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.
