As the central facial feature, the nose is responsible for bringing balance, proportion and harmony to the face. Size, shape and position, particularly when not in correct alignment, can have a profound impact on your appearance overall. That is why rhinoplasty (or nose reshaping surgery) is such a critical procedure – it creates the cosmetic enhancements you want. This is not something to trust to just any plastic surgeon; you want a physician that understands the intricate anatomy and artistry of the nose as it relates to the rest of the facial features, which will ensure the most natural, beautiful results.

Dr. Saad is an expert in both primary and revision rhinoplasty, not only working extensively in this area, but presenting his work in international venues and publishing articles on the subject. He pioneered the use of science in ethnic rhinoplasty, producing consistently stunning results regardless of patient background and specific aesthetic goals. As he strives to create the most attractive outcomes for his patients, he incorporates artistry and science to attain precision and beauty of proper facial proportions.

Are You a Candidate?

Dr. Saad performs rhinoplasty on both men and women that are dissatisfied with various aspects of their nose. Concerns that may be addressed by this surgery include:

  • Size that is disproportionate to the rest of your facial features
  • Your profile features a depression or hump on the nasal bridge
  • Nostrils are flared, upturned or asymmetrical
  • Tip of the nose is too narrow, pointed, wide or droopy
  • Structural irregularities that affect your breathing as well as your appearance

Dr. Saad is uniquely qualified to assess your cosmetic issues with your nose and determine whether rhinoplasty will help you resolve them. If you decide rhinoplasty is the right choice for you, he has numerous techniques at his disposal to customize your nose reshaping to your precise needs and facial proportions. In some cases, Dr. Saad may recommend an additional procedure paired with your rhinoplasty to produce the best outcome. Popular options performed simultaneously with nose surgery include chin augmentation or a cheek lift.

Before Your Rhinoplasty

When you first discuss your rhinoplasty procedure with Dr. Saad, you will quickly discover he takes this plastic surgery to the next level with his patients. Forty percent of his practice is made up of rhinoplasty procedures, giving him the experience to handle this complicated surgery. His aim is to create natural results because he believes the most beautiful nose is the one you don’t notice at all.

Not all plastic surgeons understand the importance of merging science and artistry to create balance and harmony, but Dr. Saad knows that creating an aesthetically pleasing nose is about more than simple visualization. The science of the procedure involves numeric ratios discovered by Da Vinci and other artists of that time. By using precise measurements in the enhancement process, Dr. Saad ensures consistent results that bring proportion to the entire face.

Options in Rhinoplasty

To help all of his patients realize the best possible results from their procedures, Dr. Saad offers the following options in rhinoplasty techniques:

Closed Rhinoplasty

During closed rhinoplasty, Dr. Saad restricts incisions to within the nasal passages. This provides sufficient access to the structure of the nose for some enhancements without leaving any visible scarring behind. He typically recommends closed rhinoplasty for patients needing less correction, since the ability to reach the internal passages, cartilage and tissue are more limited with this technique.

Open Rhinoplasty

Open rhinoplasty adds an incision across the tissue separating the nostrils underneath the nose, known as the columellar. The location and Z-shape of the incision make visible scarring after surgery almost non-existent. It also allows for greater accessibility to the internal structure of the nose so that Dr. Saad can make more extensive cosmetic corrections.

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

Patients looking for mild to moderate alterations to the nose may be candidates for non-surgical rhinoplasty, which uses a collection of injectable formulations to correct minor asymmetries and enhance the overall shape and profile of the nose. This procedure does not require any anesthesia or downtime. Results are temporary, so you will need to repeat the injections periodically to maintain positive results.

About Your Procedure

Dr. Saad’s rhinoplasty procedures are performed on an outpatient basis, using general anesthesia in most cases. The surgery may take two hours or even longer, depending on the complexity of the correction needed. Incisions are placed to access the internal nasal cavity, where Dr. Saad creates an attractive shape and size before closing the incisions using tiny sutures that result in very minimal scarring.

You will spend a short time in our recovery area before you head home. If general anesthesia is used, you will need to have someone with you for the first 24-48 hours to ensure that the initial part of your recovery is both safe and comfortable.

The Recovery Process

It is normal to have bruising and swelling after rhinoplasty. You may also go home with splints or packing to hold the nose in position as it heals. Dr. Saad will instruct you on how to make your recovery as comfortable, quick and complication-free as possible. It is likely you will be back to regular activities within about two weeks, although it is best to avoid strenuous exercise for a bit longer in order to give the nose sufficient time to heal.
