What is Primary Rhinoplasty?

Commonly referred to as a “nose job,” a rhinoplasty procedure can positively change the size, shape, and structure of your nose, enabling you to correct a number of both functional and cosmetic issues alike. Rhinoplasty can reduce a prominent bump, narrow a wide tip, straighten a crooked bridge, or make your nose more proportional to the rest of your facial features, giving you all the confidence and self-esteem that comes with an enhanced sense of facial harmony. To learn more about how a rhinoplasty procedure can help you, reach out to us and set up your consultation for rhinoplasty in Newport Beach with a helpful member of our team today.

What is Open vs. Closed Rhinoplasty?

Open and closed rhinoplasty are two distinct techniques used in nose reshaping surgeries. In open rhinoplasty, a small incision is made on the columella (the tissue between nostrils), providing better visibility for the surgeon. In contrast, closed rhinoplasty involves internal incisions with no external scarring. Both methods come with their own advantages, and the choice depends on the patient's unique needs and the surgeon's expertise.

Is Rhinoplasty Right for Me?

Just about anyone who is unhappy with the look of their nose or who has trouble breathing may be a candidate for a rhinoplasty in Newport Beach at CosmetiCare. Patients must have achieved their adult growth in the face, which generally is complete by the mid to late teens. The exact age will vary by individual case. There isn’t really an age where you become too old for rhinoplasty, as long as your primary doctor clears you for surgery.

You’re likely to be a great candidate for this procedure if you’re interested in addressing:

  • The size, shape, or projection of your nose
  • An uneven bridge
  • A drooping tip
  • A nose that is too small or too large
  • Difficulty breathing or problems with snoring

Is Rhinoplasty Performed Under Anesthesia?

Your surgery will be performed under general anesthesia. You’ll be asleep throughout the procedure and will be able to return home on the same day (though you will need a friend to drive you as the anesthesia wears off for safety purposes). Our team will remain available to you throughout your rest and recovery period to ensure that you’re comfortable and to answer any questions you might have.

What are the Types of Rhinoplasty?

Traditional Rhinoplasty

This common procedure involves reshaping the nose in order to attain a more aesthetically pleasing and balanced look. Surgeons can modify the nasal bridge, tip, and nostrils to harmonize with the patient's facial features.

Revision Rhinoplasty

Performed after a previous rhinoplasty, this corrective surgery addresses unsatisfactory outcomes or functional issues. Surgeons navigate scar tissue and complexities to achieve the desired results.


Focusing on the nasal septum, septoplasty corrects deviations that obstruct breathing or cause sinus issues. The procedure aims to improve airflow and nasal function.

Ethnic Rhinoplasty

Tailored to various ethnicities, this procedure respects cultural characteristics while enhancing facial harmony. Surgeons consider skin type, cartilage thickness, and nasal structure unique to each ethnicity.

Nasal Obstruction Correction

Addressing blockages or structural issues impeding airflow, this rhinoplasty variant prioritizes nasal function over cosmetic changes, improving breathing and overall well-being.

What is the Recovery After Rhinoplasty Surgery?

Rhinoplasty recovery includes one to two weeks of downtime, without much pain. You can expect swelling, bruising, and a clogged-nose feeling during this time. A lot of patients report feeling like the start of a cold.

Two Weeks

Your swelling and bruising will have subsided enough to be in public without people “noticing”.

Three Months

You’ll be able to see the new shape and size of your nose, however, swelling will still need to continue to resolve through this healing process.

Six Months

Almost all swelling will be gone.

One Year

Your swelling will have fully subsided and your final results will be realized.

How much does rhinoplasty cost?

The starting price of rhinoplasty in Orange County is $10,500. This does not include anesthesia or surgical center fees. We offer up to 24-month financing options to help our patients pay off the cost of their procedure over time. In just minutes, you can apply here to see what you are pre-qualified for before your consultation.

Can I wear my reading glasses or sunglasses after rhinoplasty surgery?

We advise against wearing glasses for the first month or two, so you’ll need to arrange for contact lenses to be worn throughout the healing process of rhinoplasty at CosmetiCare in Orange County.

Are there alternatives to rhinoplasty surgery?

A “liquid non-surgical nose job” is performed at CosmetiCare in Newport Beach with hyaluronic acid-based injectable fillers, like Juvéderm Voluma or Restylane Lyft. This is an option to consider for hiding bumps, creating more facial profile balance, or lifting and building the tip of your nose.

This approach has its limitations, however. If you have a large nose, fillers will not make it appear smaller. Fillers also cannot fix a crooked nasal bridge.

Can rhinoplasty fix my breathing problems?

This procedure isn’t always about cosmetics. Many people seek surgery in order to correct problems with their nasal passages. In fact, breathing complaints are a common reason why patients seek out a rhinoplasty in Orange County. Rhinoplasty is one of the few cosmetic surgeries which may be covered by insurance if the procedure is recommended for medically necessary reasons.

Will insurance cover rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty at CosmetiCare in Newport Beach is considered a cosmetic procedure and therefore is not typically covered. However, they may cover certain fees if your surgeon is addressing functional issues—performing a septoplasty, turbinate reduction, or nasal valve repair.

Talk with your insurance company about what kind of documentation you’d need to provide to show that the procedure is addressing medically necessary issues.

If cost is of concern, we offer financing options to help our patients pay off the cost of their procedure over time. In just minutes, you can apply here to see what you are pre-qualified for before your consultation.

How long will my rhinoplasty results last?

Surgical rhinoplasty results are permanent, though you may notice subtle changes to your nose over time due to the normal aging process.

Will rhinoplasty make my face look different?

Yes, rhinoplasty changes the shape and size of your nose, bringing more balance to your profile. Because your nose is the focal point of your face, any modification made to it—even a small one—is noticeable.

Is rhinoplasty different for Black, Asian, Latino, and Middle Eastern patients?

Yes. This is a specialized skill set referred to as “Ethnic Rhinoplasty.” During an ethnic rhinoplasty procedure, your specialized plastic surgeon will reshape and resize the nose, retaining its distinct features and cultural identity, while also keeping it proportional to the face.

Upon booking your consultation, request to meet one of our board-certified plastic surgeons who specialize in ethnic rhinoplasty.

How do I choose my new look?

CosmetiCare surgeons will use computer imaging during your consultation to determine what the final shape of your nose should be. This is a very useful tool which assists both doctor and patient in communication and the decision-making process.

What will my scars look like after rhinoplasty?

With a closed rhinoplasty, the incisions are made entirely inside the nose, hidden from view. Sometimes incisions may be made across the skin between the nostrils (an open rhinoplasty), but the resulting scar is small and generally difficult to see. Visible scarring isn’t really a concern with rhinoplasty.
