What is Nose Surgery?

Rhinoplasty, often called a “nose job,” is a surgical procedure that reshapes or resizes the nose for aesthetic or functional purposes. It can correct various concerns, including a visible bump on the nasal bridge, a droopy or enlarged nasal tip, an off-center or crooked nose, or issues with the nasal function that lead to breathing difficulties. In Torrance, rhinoplasty is a popular procedure performed by skilled surgeons who use advanced techniques to achieve natural-looking results that harmonize with the patient’s facial features. Whether you’re seeking cosmetic enhancement or relief from breathing problems, Torrance offers top-notch medical facilities for your rhinoplasty needs.

What is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty involves changing the nose’s shape, size, or proportions to improve an individual’s look. Aside from aesthetic purposes, this surgical procedure can also repair congenital disabilities or deformities from injuries and help with breathing problems. From cartilage or bone revision to cartilage transfer, surgeons use various techniques in nose surgery. It is performed to treat the following:

1- Nose misalignment

2- Overly large or overly small nose

3- Bulbous, drooping, or hooked nose tips

4- Nose bridges with visible humps and depressions

5- Nasal injury (such as a broken nose)

6- Closed or limiting breathing passages.

Are You a Good Candidate?

Getting a rhinoplasty is a highly personal decision. In general, you are a good candidate for a nose job if:

1- You are physically healthy

2- You have realistic expectations and a positive outlook

3-  You have completed facial growth

4- You do not smoke


During your initial consultation, our surgical team at Skin Works will discuss everything you need to know about rhinoplasty, from preparation to recovery. You will also be asked about your goals and motivation to manage your expectations. By understanding what the entire procedure entails and the results you might achieve, you can decide whether a nose job is right for you.

Preparing For Nose Surgery

Like any form of surgery, nose surgery requires patients to prepare themselves physically and mentally for the procedure. These steps should help you get ready for your upcoming rhinoplasty:

Step #1: Medical History Evaluation

Your assigned surgeon will ask you questions regarding your medical condition. This interview will touch upon the following:

1- Any history of nasal obstruction, including other surgeries performed in the past.

2- Bleeding problems. If you have a bleeding problem, you most likely won’t be allowed to undergo rhinoplasty, which could complicate the procedure.

3- Adjusting or avoiding certain medications altogether. Anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen, aspirin, and herbal supplements obtained over the counter should be avoided.

4- Smoking habits. This is because, as with most surgeries, smoking can cause the healing process after the operation to go at a slower pace. This can lead to an increased risk of infection as well.

If you have any other medical history that may complicate the procedure, your doctor will also review them.

Step #2: Undergoing a Physical Examination

Before undergoing nose surgery, you should expect a physical exam and a lab test. Apart from your nose, the doctor will meticulously analyze your entire facial structure and draw up a plan that best suits your profile. A physical examination before rhinoplasty is crucial as it helps surgeons determine certain factors, such as the strength of your nose cartilage and skin thickness. These two can severely affect the surgery’s results if not assessed beforehand.

Step #3: Complete Photography of Your Nose

The staff assigned to you will acquire photos of your nose. Different angles will be taken as this will help your doctor showcase the before and after results of the operation.

What Can You Expect After Rhinoplasty?

After the nose surgery, a nasal splint or bandages are usually used to support and protect your new nose. There will be some swelling or bruising around the eye area, which can improve after a couple of weeks to months. You can return to most of your activities one week after the surgery. You can carry on with your routine by the second to fourth week. The results of your rhinoplasty will become more apparent once your nose has healed completely.

Recovery Tips

Specific tips will help you recover quickly after your nose surgery. These are:

1- Take a bath instead of a shower. Otherwise, water will hit your nose, which could be painful or affect the surgery results.

2- Avoid swimming pools. The chlorine in swimming pools may irritate your nose as it heals.

3- Have good posture and make sure your head stays elevated.

4- Avoid making extreme facial expressions, particularly smiling or laughing.

5- Refrain from blowing your nose or sneezing. While sneezing may be involuntary, it is usually triggered by environmental factors such as allergies or spices. You should avoid these triggers. If you have to sneeze, moving your tongue along the roof of your mouth or pressing it against your front teeth can help.

6- Avoid strenuous exercise.

7- Don’t put your clothes over your head. Wear button-up or zip-up tops instead. You can also opt to wear clothes that you can step into, such as body suits, rompers, or dresses.

8- Don’t wear glasses or sunglasses. If you need glasses to see, you can opt to use contacts instead. You can consult with one of our Skin Works Medical Spa experts before your surgery if you need more advice on dealing with this recovery step.
