Rhinoplasty with Dr. Mirzabeigi at Atlanta Plastic Surgery
As one of the most well-known plastic surgery procedures, rhinoplasty or nose surgery has helped countless patients become confident in their appearance. While rhinoplasty refers to any cosmetic nose surgery, each patient’s procedure is unique to their specific concerns. During nose surgery, I can treat issues like a dorsal hump, a large nose, an irregular nasal-bone position, an enlarged/poorly defined nasal tip, enlarged nostrils, and many other common concerns. For patients with certain breathing problems, rhinoplasty can also help by addressing obstructions or irregularities in the nasal anatomy. Using the latest methods and technology, I use rhinoplasty to enhance each patient’s appearance and their quality of life.
If you are interested in rhinoplasty or any of the other procedures I perform, contact me, Dr. Michael Mirzabeigi, to schedule a consultation at our locations in Atlanta, Cumming, or Canton.
Am I a good candidate for cosmetic nose surgery?
If you are in good physical health and want to improve your nose’s appearance or breathing ability, you may be a good candidate for rhinoplasty. It all depends on your desired goals, your nasal anatomy, and your expectations. It is also important to allow your nose to fully develop first. This typically happens in early adulthood, when patients reach skeletal maturity (i.e. completion of facial growth). Ultimately, to find out if you’re a candidate for rhinoplasty, you need an in-person consultation with me, Dr. Michael Mirzabeigi.
What issues can rhinoplasty address?
Rhinoplasty is a general term that refers to any cosmetic surgery for your nose. Each patient’s nose and desired result is unique, so I tailor each surgery to the patient. The most common reasons patients visit me for nose surgery include a nose they feel is too large or too small, a crooked nose, a bump on the bridge of the nose, an asymmetrical nose, and a nose that they believe is too wide. While cosmetic goals are the most common reasons for rhinoplasty, I also have many patients who have breathing obstructions in their noses’ anatomy, whether they’re natural abnormalities or they came from past injuries. Depending on your condition, rhinoplasty may be able to improve these breathing problems.
How long does it take to recover from rhinoplasty?
While it is a significant surgery, rhinoplasty doesn’t require as long of a recovery as some patients expect. I advise my patients to plan for about one week away from work and other obligations. While patients are typically well enough to return to most of their daily activities at this point, it can take several months for most of your swelling to resolve. Of course, keep in mind that every patient is unique and that each person heals at their own pace.
