Better Balance, Beautiful Profile
The nose is a natural focal point of the face, significantly impacting the face’s overall proportions and appearance. When the nose's size, shape, or asymmetry disrupts facial harmony, a rhinoplasty or nose job can single-handedly enhance the face’s appearance as a whole and produce a more attractive profile. In addition to the cosmetic purposes of rhinoplasty surgery, the procedure also offers functional enhancement of the nose, refining irregularities to improve airflow and breathing. Dr. Brandon Richland is an accomplished and board-certified plastic surgeon serving patients in Newport Beach and Huntington Beach, California. Dr. Richland’s exceptional dedication to excellence ensures that you will achieve the best rhinoplasty results possible, with beautifully harmonic facial proportions and optimal breathing.
Exploring your Candidacy
The ideal candidate for rhinoplasty surgery has concerns about the appearance or functionality of their nose, or in some cases, both. To undergo surgery, you should be a generally healthy, non-smoking adult and have a realistic perception of what rhinoplasty can achieve. In addition, you should be dedicated to following all post-procedure instructions closely to allow for optimal healing.
The details of your procedure will depend heavily on your unique treatment goals and the existing condition of your nose. Dr. Brandon Richland will make adjustments to the size or shape of your nose by sculpting the bone and cartilage according to your aspirations. Your rhinoplasty will be performed under general anesthesia to ensure your complete comfort throughout the procedure, and your incisions will be discreetly placed so that, once healed, they will be virtually undetectable.
Dr. Richland employs a thorough consultation process to provide you with a personalized treatment plan tailored to every aspect of your unique goals and needs and, ultimately, your best possible results. During the consultation phase of your treatment, Dr. Richland will listen to your concerns, lifestyle needs, and desired treatment outcome to present you with the most suitable treatment options for you. Together you will devise a detailed plan for your rhinoplasty treatment. With a full understanding of your treatment, you will arrive prepared and confident on the day of your procedure.
At the completion of your rhinoplasty surgery, you may have internal packing and/or an external splint which will stay on for 1-2 weeks. As your nose heals and swelling subsides, your new nasal contours will be revealed. While your results will be mostly visible after a few weeks, the full process can take up to a year as tissues settle. Dr. Richland will provide you with detailed instructions for caring for your nose, including when to come back for your follow-up appointment.
