Rhinoplasty is the medical name for the procedure which improves the nose either in a cosmetic way or in a functional way. Most Orange County residents would call this surgery a nose job. Dr. Kevin Sadati wants each rhinoplasty he performs to end with results that not only look better but also allow the patient to live a better life with a better functioning nose. For many years, this surgery has been his most-requested procedure at his Newport Beach practice. His own revision rate is very low, and he specializes in fixing the mistakes of other surgeons through the revision rhinoplasty procedure.
Dr. Sadati takes the time to get to know each patient on a personal level. He wants to know what their expectations are of the surgery, and he wants to provide them with the new look that they desire. At the same time, however, he wants to make sure the result flows with the rest of the patient’s facial structure. He wants to ensure the patient’s face is more harmonious at the end of the surgery, and that the new nose brings out of all the patient’s best features. Dr. Sadati wants to highlight a patient’s inner beauty and natural ethnic features as he knows these are an important part of anyone’s identity.
The average rhinoplasty surgery is about one to three hours long, depending on the complexity and severity of the procedure. Most patients will find that they require general anesthesia to complete the surgery, but twilight anesthesia is another option that can be discussed with the surgeon. The surgery recovery period is about 7 to 10 days long, and the patient will need to wear a nasal splint for about a week. Once the splint is removed, the patient will see the end results and can go back to living their daily lives.
Patients who opt to have this surgery should expect there to be some bruising and swelling once it is complete. Dr. Sadati works with the patient, to take both preoperative and postoperative measures to minimize the impact of bruising and swelling. In addition to this, each patient is given a set of post-operative instructions designed specifically for their case. It is essential that patients follow these instructions as they are the key to feeling better quicker and ensuring long term success.
