What is septoplasty?

If you experience breathing difficulties or loud snoring during sleep, you might be a candidate for a surgical procedure called septoplasty. This procedure addresses a condition known as a deviated septum, where the wall separating the nasal passages is misaligned, obstructing airflow and making breathing challenging. Doctor Ali can correct this issue in a one-hour septoplasty surgery. Additionally, septoplasty may be covered by insurance in some cases.

Is a nose job painful?

The level of discomfort from rhinoplasty varies depending on each patient's pain tolerance and the extent of the procedure. Any adjustments to the septum or within the nose typically cause some discomfort and congestion. Procedures involving the nasal bones can result in pain, external bruising, and swelling. Despite these factors, rhinoplasty remains one of the most popular and rewarding cosmetic surgeries. Most patients will need prescription medication to manage discomfort during the first week after the surgery.

What other procedures can be combined with rhinoplasty?

In certain instances, Doctor Ali might suggest a chin implant to further enhance facial profile and harmony. A chin implant can improve the appearance of a weak chin, providing a stronger and more defined contour.

How do you pick the right surgeon for your nose surgery?

When selecting the right surgeon for your rhinoplasty, it's important to focus on factors other than cost. Choose a surgeon with rigorous training and board certification. This ensures they have completed extensive exams, residencies, and fellowships, and have been vetted to meet the highest industry standards. Review the surgeon’s results by looking at before and after photos and reading testimonials. Meeting with the surgeon in person is crucial to ask questions and discuss their approach. Trusting someone with your face is significant, so address any discomfort during the consultation. You can schedule additional consultations until you feel fully confident. Never let a surgeon or anyone else rush you into making a decision.
