Rhinoplasty Miami

Because the nose is often seen as the focal point of the face, it is important for it to have an ideal shape, size, and structure to balance out other facial features. Those who are unhappy with their noses may find that a rhinoplasty in Miami at Icon Cosmetic Center can give them the look they have long wanted.

What Is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is another term for a nose job, and it is used to improve the harmony of the face and to create ideal proportions for the nose. It can bring changes to the lower cartilaginous structures of the nose, to the bony upper portions of the nose, or to both areas.

Nose Surgery Benefits

While the majority of people who opt for this surgery are looking for cosmetic results, it can also be performed for medical reasons. In some people, the shape of the nose or the structure of the septum, which is the tissue separating the nostrils, can impede breathing. This surgery can create a better airway passage and eliminate snoring, sinus infections, and other physical problems that these individuals may have.

However, this surgery is most often used to change the shape or size of the nose in one of the following ways.

  • Reshape the nasal tip
  • Reshape the nostrils
  • Eliminate bony prominences
  • Smooth the nasal bridge
  • Improve the overall aesthetics of facial features

Candidates for Nose Surgery

The best candidates for this surgery are those who have had it recommended to them by their physicians to improve their breathing or those who want to experience a more aesthetically pleasing nose shape or size. In addition, surgical candidates should be healthy non-smokers and should be old enough for facial growth to be complete.

Your Rhinoplasty Consultation

To determine whether or not you are a good candidate for this surgery, you will meet with your Rhinoplasty surgeon at Icon Cosmetic Center for a complete consultation. During this appointment, the plastic surgeon will examine your facial structure to determine if a rhinoplasty is feasible. In addition, he will measure your face, listen to your personal goals, and talk to you about treatment options. You will have the opportunity to ask questions that you may have about the procedure or recovery.

How Is Cosmetic Nose Surgery Performed?

Prior to surgery, you may need to have laboratory work completed and may be instructed to stop certain medications that could increase the risk of bleeding. Your same-day surgery will be completed in a safe surgical facility. You will be kept completely safe and comfortable throughout the entire experience with the help of general anesthesia. Because of this, you will need to have someone drive you home following your surgery.

Rhinoplasty Surgery Options

There are two main ways to perform this procedure depending on the patient’s needs and goals. In addition, your doctor may choose a septoplasty for individuals with breathing problems or a revision rhinoplasty for a patient who is dissatisfied with previous surgical outcomes.

Open Rhinoplasty

In the open surgical procedure, incisions are made on the outside of the nose to connect to incisions made on the inside of the nose. It is the best option for very detailed surgeries and major nose changes. With this technique, the surgeon will be able to see all of the structures of the nose quite well.

Closed Rhinoplasty

For less detailed needs, a closed surgical procedure may be used. With this procedure, no incisions are made on the outside of the nose, and there may be less swelling in the area during recovery.


A septoplasty is somewhat different as it does not focus on aesthetic needs but rather on the structural needs of the septum located between the nostrils. In this procedure, the surgeon straightens the septum to improve breathing and decrease sinus problems.

Revision Rhinoplasty

This procedure is used for individuals who have had previous nose-reshaping surgeries. It can be used further to improve the appearance or structure of the nose.

Recovery After Rhinoplasty Procedure

Patients should plan to take at least one week off work following the procedure to let discomfort and much of the swelling subside. During this time, there will be packing or possibly a splint inside the nose to help with healing. It may take up to a year for all of the swelling to go away completely. During recovery, patients may need to take certain medications to decrease discomfort and ensure that the area does not become infected.

Rhinoplasty Miami Cost

Rhinoplasty cost can vary dramatically based on the type of procedure to be performed and the extent of the surgery. However, most rhinoplasties in Miami cost between $5,000 to $10,000. There may be additional costs for anesthesia, laboratory work, and other services.

Risks and Complications After Cosmetic Nose Surgery

As is the case with all surgeries, there are some inherent risks with this procedure. The plastic surgeon will discuss this in detail before the surgery. The following are some of the most common risks and possible complications:

  • Bleeding
  • Swelling
  • Scarring
  • Infection
  • Difficulty breathing
  • The need for revisional surgery
