Rosenthal is a rhinoplasty specialist serving Boynton Beach and West Palm Beach, Florida, who creates natural-looking results that can improve your facial harmony and confidence.

How Is Rhinoplasty Performed?

There are two primary approaches to the procedure: open and closed rhinoplasty. Dr. Rosenthal typically uses the open rhinoplasty technique, which involves general anesthesia to keep patients comfortable throughout the surgery. Rhinoplasty surgery typically takes about two hours.

Open Rhinoplasty

When performing open rhinoplasty, Dr. Rosenthal starts by making a small incision on the strip of skin dividing the nostrils, called the columella. After making the incision, he gently lifts the skin off the nose to expose the nasal bone and cartilage. He makes adjustments to these to produce the desired results. The scar resulting after an open rhinoplasty is very small and is usually imperceptible after the incision heals.

Closed Rhinoplasty

The difference between an open and closed nose surgery is that Dr. Rosenthal doesn’t make an external incision during closed rhinoplasty. Instead, all incisions are made within the nose, and he works through these incisions to change the shape or size of the nose. The drawback of closed rhinoplasty is that the surgeon doesn’t have a direct visualization of the bone and cartilage.

What Are the Benefits of Rhinoplasty for Me?

People consider getting rhinoplasty—often called a nose job—for various reasons. Most of our Boynton Beach patients have thought about changing the size or shape of their noses for a long time. In some cases, a person may have difficulty breathing through their nose and may need septoplasty to clear their airways.

The primary reasons for cosmetic rhinoplasty include:

  • Minimizing a prominent bump or hump on the bridge
  • Narrowing a bulbous nose to create a streamlined nasal tip
  • Elevating a droopy tip or bringing down an upturned tip
  • Straightening a crooked bridge
  • Creating symmetry
  • Reducing the size of the nose

During your consultation, Dr. Rosenthal listens to your specific reasons for wanting cosmetic nose surgery and examines your nose and the quality of the skin. Ideal candidates for a nose job are in good overall health and have realistic expectations about what the procedure can accomplish.

How Much Does Rhinoplasty Cost in Boynton Beach?

The cost of rhinoplasty depends on your specific concerns and the extent of the procedure needed to accomplish your cosmetic goals. The cost of reshaping only the tip of your nose, for example, ranges from $7,296 to $8,296 at Rosenthal Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery. The cost of a full rhinoplasty procedure ranges from $12,689 to $16,564.*

Dr. Rosenthal creates a personalized surgical plan after your consultation, and we provide a detailed price quote that you can review before scheduling surgery. We work with various companies that specialize in financing cosmetic surgery, including CareCredit®, PatientFi®, and Yes Doctor.

Can I Combine My Rhinoplasty Surgery With Other Procedures?

For enhanced facial balance or multiple improvements with a single surgery, Dr. Rosenthal combines rhinoplasty with other procedures, such as the following:

What Is Revision Rhinoplasty?

Dr. Rosenthal often performs revision rhinoplasty for patients who are unhappy with the results of nose surgery performed at another practice. The revision surgery poses unique challenges because of the presence of scar tissue that develops following the original procedure and, in some cases, insufficient cartilage. Dr. Rosenthal may use cartilage from elsewhere in the body, particularly the ear and occasionally the rib. The cost of revision (secondary) rhinoplasty ranges from $19,596 to $24,596.

What Should I Expect During My Rhinoplasty (Nose Job) Recovery?

During the initial healing process after rhinoplasty, expect swelling, bruising, and a stuffy-nose feeling (but resist the urge to blow your nose). However, patients are often pleasantly surprised to find there isn’t much pain after nose surgery.  

Recovery Milestones

While experiences vary between patients and with the specifics of each surgery, here is a timeline of significant recovery milestones:

  • Apply cold compresses: 48 hours as directed
  • Avoid taking ibuprofen (Advil® or Motrin®): first 7 days
  • Keep your head elevated while you sleep or rest: 7 to 10 days
  • Bruising and swelling fade: 7 to 10 days
  • Return to school, work, and nonstrenuous activities: 10 to 14 days
  • Resume lifting, bending, and strenuous activities: 3 weeks
  • Safe to gently blow your nose: 6 weeks
  • See improvements: 3 months
  • Final results: 6 to 12 months

Follow your post-op instructions carefully to avoid complications and achieve optimal results. Feel free to contact our office with concerns or questions while you recover.

Rhinoplasty FAQ

Is rhinoplasty surgery safe?

Rhinoplasty is considered safe when performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon who has experience performing the procedure. Rhinoplasty is considered one of the most technically demanding plastic surgery procedures, so it’s important to choose a board-certified plastic surgeon who is very familiar with the procedure and the nose’s delicate anatomy.

What’s the best age to get a nose job?

There is no age that is “best” for having a nose job. It’s important to have a clear understanding of your possible results before having the surgery. Teenagers can have the surgery once their noses have fully developed, which is about 15 for girls and 17 for boys.

Will my results be permanent?

Results last indefinitely as long as there is no trauma to the nose. The nose will change with aging but not significantly.

Am I too old to get a rhinoplasty?

If you are in good physical health and would like to improve the appearance and/or function of your nose, you are likely a good candidate for rhinoplasty.

How do I know if I need a rhinoplasty revision?

If it’s been at least a year since your original nose surgery and you are unhappy with the way your nose looks or functions, it’s time to meet with Dr. Rosenthal for a consultation.
