When to consider a nose job (rhinoplasty) with Cleveland's expert nose job Surgeon Dr. Diana Ponsky


Your nose is an important feature of your face and greatly impacts your overall appearance, as it is the center of the face. Your nose can either complement a smile and bright eyes or distract from the rest of your features. More than 200,000 rhinoplasties are performed yearly, making this the most common facial plastic surgery procedure.

A nose job performed by a top rhinoplasty surgeon in Cleveland, Dr. Diana Ponsky, can alter the look and structure of the nose for those who are self-conscious about the size, width, or shape of their nose. Rhinoplasty can correct a crooked nose bridge or nostrils, a large hump on the bridge, a big or bulbous tip, a tip that is at a sharp angle, and an overly prominent or too-small nose. Beyond aesthetic needs, the surgery sometimes has important implications for a deviated septum, which affects the ability to breathe normally and comfortably. Rhinoplasty can simultaneously help you improve breathing and achieve a more balanced appearance.

How It Helps

Rhinoplasty typically straightens a crooked nose or reduces a high profile or Dorsal Hump. It can define a bulbous or rounded nasal tip or narrow the size of nostrils. Structurally, a nose job can restore a broken or crooked nose or correct a deviated septum for healthier breathing function, which may improve sleep and reduce snoring. The ideal nose job does not draw attention to the nose itself but provides a more balanced facial appearance.

What to expect before rhinoplasty

As a highly rated Cleveland Rhinoplasty surgeon, Dr. Diana Ponsky will begin your consultation by establishing clear communication about your aesthetic goals and expectations and create a plan to achieve realistic and satisfactory results. Along with an examination and facial photographs, you will discuss your health history, a course of treatment, outcomes, risks, and potential complications.


What to expect during a nose job

General anesthesia will be administered to ensure your comfort. Careful incisions are made either across the narrow strip of tissue that separates the nostrils, or in the lining of your nostrils. These are known as the open technique or closed technique, respectively. After the incisions are made, cartilage is restructured or removed in order to reshape the nose. When the nose has been reshaped, the incisions will be closed and a nasal splint will be placed to add support while the nose heals.


What to expect after rhinoplasty

While there is little pain after surgery, for the first week, you will need to wear a nose splint. Expect some bruising around the eyes after surgery, which could last up to two weeks but can typically be camouflaged with makeup after one week. Strenuous activity should be avoided for about two to three weeks, after which normal activity can be resumed safely. The most common complaint is pressure due to swelling, which can make breathing difficult for about 3 weeks after the surgery. Facial swelling after a nose job is completely normal and follows every rhinoplasty procedure. Once the initial swelling subsides and the nasal splint is removed, the initial results will be visible about 2 weeks after surgery. It might take up to a year for the last traces of swelling to fully resolve and see the final contour of the nose.
