Rhinoplasty or nose job surgery by Dr. Kassir is a procedure that involves altering the shape and size of the nose. A rhinoplasty can be performed to correct an over projected tip, remove a bump, and straighten the nose. Dr. Kassir reshapes the nasal bones and cartilage to produce a balanced nose to blend in with the person’s other facial features to create facial harmony. Dr. Kassir has performed over 8,000 rhinoplasties with patients from over 199 countries; making him an international expert in rhinoplasty.
What is Rhinoplasty?
A rhinoplasty is a surgery to improve the shape and size of the nose. It is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries, as many people wish to improve the appearance of their nose. Dr. Kassir performs rhinoplasties on patients that are unhappy with the nose they were born with, as well as noses that were distorted due to injury. A rhinoplasty procedure can remove a hump on the nasal bridge, reshape the tip, reshape the nostrils, correct a deviated septum, and straighten the nose. Before the procedure, Dr. Kassir will hold a consultation with the prospective rhinoplasty patient to best understand the patient’s aesthetic goal and tailor the result to create harmony with the other facial features. Dr. Kassir’s surgical expertise can dramatically improve the shape of a nose, while still putting emphasis on making the results look natural. The nose is a very prominent feature and can often be the center of attention, causing self-image issues or emotional distress. The rhinoplasty procedure is a permanent way to enhance the features of the nose. Dr. Kassir is a leading surgeon in rhinoplasties, including:
- Revision rhinoplasty
- Teen rhinoplasty
- Ethnic rhinoplasty
Dr. Kassir provides a range of procedures for patients that are seeking cosmetic surgery or patients looking to improve nasal breathing and chronic sinus infections. Cosmetic surgery can be performed to improve the appearance of the nose, while also improving the quality of breathing. Rhinoplasty may be performed under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis. Most health insurance plans provide some coverage for functional nasal or sinus surgery. A rhinoplasty surgery takes about 1 to 2 hours and the splint is removed on the 6th or 7th day to reveal your new nose. The immediate post-surgery photos are examples of what the nose will look like after a rhinoplasty. There will be swelling, however, the majority of swelling goes down within 3 months. The final result of a rhinoplasty usually takes about 1 year to see due to all of the minor swelling that has to subside.

Recovery from Rhinoplasty
It is vital to adhere to our recovery guidelines for the safest and most optimal results. This includes the use of Dr. Kassir's rhinoplasty recovery kit and the medical-grade recovery skincare line. Together, this routine will prevent the occurrence of unwanted or uneven scarring to ensure that your nose recovers quickly. After surgery you may have packing that will be removed the very next day in Dr. Kassir’s office. Patients must sleep on their back with their head slightly lifted for the first week following surgery to prevent anything interfering with the nose. On day 6, the splint is removed, however, you may have swelling which can make the nose appear bigger than it was made. Full recovery takes 6-12 months but the results are obvious when the splint is removed (almost all of our are patients happy the with nose right after splint removal, and it only continues to get better).
Throughout the healing process, it is important to remember that Dr. Kassir made the nose to the exact dimensions in the digitized image, and the skin swelling can easily hide this. We provide painkillers and antibiotics to help alleviate pain and the risk of infection. Avid use of arnica is recommended along with other items in your patient checklist. Make sure to walk around 3 to 4 times a day to enhance blood flow to promote recovery, and ask our staff for the best prevention measures for healing in your surgery. Do not bend over or lift heavy objects until Dr. Kassir provides approval. You'll want to avoid saunas, steam, alcohol, aspirin, and ibuprofen. Most patients are able to return to work after 1 week of recovery.
Is Rhinoplasty Safe?
Like any surgery, rhinoplasty comes with some risks, so it is important to go to an experienced plastic surgeon to ensure optimal results. Rhinoplasty is a precise procedure, so candidates should choose their surgeons wisely.
Dr. Kassir can improve the appearance of the nose to meet the patient's wishes without reducing the overall strength of the nose, preventing the possibility of a collapsed nasal bridge. This is essential to his technique that prevents the need for a revision after having a procedure with him. His skill is a result of his experience performing over 8,000 rhinoplasties over the past 22 years. You can see from hundreds of our 5-star reviews and thousands of before and afters that our center provides the safest and most pain-free recovery in the U.S. for rhinoplasties. Dr. Kassir also fixes many "botched" rhinoplasties, which is why it's important to book by experience and not price to ensure that a second procedure will not have to be done.
What Does a Rhinoplasty Cost?
The average cost of a rhinoplasty can range from upward from $15,000, depending on what needs to be done and the level of work involved. Many of our patients can find out if our credit providers cover the procedure during the consult. Our cosmetic coordinator will apply with you (this does not affect your credit score); and see what will be covered. We offer payment periods ranging from 6-12 months for our patients. Typically, a range of credit scores are accepted so we suggest booking a consult to see if the remaining amount of the procedure can be covered. Having a summer job or saving for the procedure is also an option. Having more than one procedure done will provide additional savings and reduce the need for multiple OR/anesthesia fees.
