If you are unhappy with the way your nose looks, it can affect how you feel about yourself.
Rhinoplasty (or a "nose job") is a surgery to reshape the bone, cartilage, or skin of the nose, making it more proportionate or symmetrical.
Dr. Sahar Nadimi of Chicago Hair Institute can perform rhinoplasty for Chicago, IL, patients to help them look and feel their best.
Did You Know?
Rhinoplasty can do more than improve your nasal shape. This plastic surgery procedure can also address certain respiratory problems that can inhibit a patient’s ability to breathe properly through the nose. Many patients experience a major improvement in their quality of life after having this procedure.
Top Rhinoplasty Benefits
Rhinoplasty can change the size and shape of the nose, reduce or increase the width of the nasal bridge, reduce or increase the size of the nostrils, realign a crooked nose, reshape the tip of the nose to reduce size or length, or eliminate large bumps along the nasal bridge. After a rhinoplasty, your nose will appear more symmetrical and proportionate to the rest of your facial features.
A rhinoplasty is also suitable for treating respiratory problems such as a deviated septum, which can inhibit your ability to breathe properly. Additionally, a rhinoplasty can correct other structural problems or damage suffered due to nasal trauma. Patients who suffered from respiratory problems corrected by the surgery will enjoy the ability to breathe with ease and comfort.
If your nose is crooked, curved, or misshapen, it can affect how you feel about all of your facial features. During your consultation at Chicago Hair Institute in greater Chicago, IL, Dr. Nadimi will listen to your cosmetic concerns to design a procedure that helps you get the nose you've always wanted. By helping you feel your best, rhinoplasty can improve your self-confidence and day-to-day life.

What Can a Rhinoplasty Address?
Rhinoplasty reshapes your nose so it appears more balanced with your other features. A nose job can address:
- A nose that is larger or wider in proportion to your other facial features
- A nasal tip that droops, is too large, or too thick
- An under-projected or over-projected nasal flap
- Nostrils that are misshapen or too big
- Thin or short nasal bones
- A crooked or off-center nose that disrupts your face's symmetry
- A nose that has been affected by an injury
Rhinoplasty can also restore function to your nose, making it easier to breathe again. Dr. Nadimi has the skill and experience to fix nasal problems and a misaligned septum.
Are You a Good Candidate for Rhinoplasty?
Dissatisfaction With Your Nose
Rhinoplasty is appropriate for any patient who is unhappy with their appearance due to the size and shape of their nose.
Teens are often the most dissatisfied with the appearance of their noses; however, we do not recommend rhinoplasty until the nose has stopped growing. For girls, this is usually around age 15, but it can be as late as 17 or 18 for boys.
Impaired Nasal Function
Rhinoplasty can also be an appropriate treatment for a broken nose, deviated septum, or other condition that inhibits breathing.
Good Overall Health
Patients should be in good overall health to undergo plastic surgery. It is important to discuss any potential health concerns with Dr. Nadimi during your consultation.
A patient should have realistic expectations for the potential outcome of their procedure. It is important to discuss your treatment expectations with Dr. Nadimi during your consultation.

What to Expect During Rhinoplasty
Dr. Nadimi possesses a keen eye for cosmetic detail and can reshape your nose to complement your other facial features.
Life After Nose Surgery
Possible side effects include swelling, bruising, bleeding, and pain, but these should resolve after a few days. To minimize these side effects, keep your head elevated for a few days after surgery. If you experience significant pain or bleeding or develop a fever, please contact our Chicago practice as soon as possible.
One of the best parts of nasal surgery is that there is very little downtime required. Most nasal splints are removed after a week and most patients return to work and light activities after about three weeks. It is best to keep the surgical site dry and clean for several days to allow the site to heal. Try not to touch the covering or sutures. If you are prescribed medication by your plastic surgeon, take it as directed. Dr. Nadimi will provide detailed aftercare instructions to ensure that you experience an efficient, successful recovery.
You will have a few follow-up appointments at our Chicago practice. It is important that you attend these appointments as they will allow your surgeon to monitor your healing. The first appointment is typically a few days after surgery, with one or two more scheduled a few weeks out. Your surgeon will remove the splint at one of these appointments and monitor your results.
About one month after surgery, most of the facial swelling will have subsided and patients can begin to see their results; however, it can take up to one year for your final nasal shape to become visible. The results of your nasal procedure will last a lifetime.
Common Fears and Concerns from Rhinoplasty Patients
How much does rhinoplasty cost?
The cost of nose surgery varies from patient to patient. After assessing your nose at our Chicago practice, Dr. Nadimi can create a detailed treatment proposal and provide a custom quote for nose surgery. She can also address any concerns you have about the cost of the procedure.
Does rhinoplasty hurt?
The surgery itself is performed under anesthesia, so there won't be any discomfort during the procedure. After surgery, some facial sensitivity, swelling, and bruising are to be expected; however, most discomfort can be alleviated with over-the-counter pain medication and usually goes away after a few days.
Will people be able to tell that I had a nose job?
Dr. Nadimi works carefully to reshape your nose in a way that complements your other facial features. While close friends and family may notice that you've had nasal surgery, your results will be so natural-looking and the scarring so discreet that strangers will not notice that you've had plastic surgery.
Is rhinoplasty safe?
It is important to remember that rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure, and all surgeries carry some risk; however, the risks associated with this plastic surgery are minimal and complications are rare, especially when performed by a double board-certified plastic surgeon. During your consultation with Dr. Nadimi, she will discuss the risks and benefits. It is important that you disclose any health concerns and medications with your plastic surgeon so she can ensure you are healthy enough to undergo surgery.
Can I combine my rhinoplasty with other cosmetic procedures?
Yes. Our Chicago plastic surgeons are trained in a variety of surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic procedures, including facelifts, hair transplants, blepharoplasty, BOTOX® Cosmetic, and more. During your initial consultation at our Chicago practice, your plastic surgeon will discuss your goals and develop a custom treatment plan.
