Rhinoplasty - California Nose Surgery
Los Angeles, Pasadena, Covina, Arcadia, & Hollywood, California
Rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, is a plastic surgery procedure that can be fine-tuned according to the needs of each patient. When the operation is properly performed, your nose appears to be balanced and in proportion to the rest of your features. Almost every cosmetic problem with the nose can be improved with the rhinoplasty procedure.
Am I a Candidate for Rhinoplasty?
Just about anyone who is unhappy with the appearance of their nose is a candidate for rhinoplasty. However, it is important to wait until your nose has fully developed to undergo the procedure. This occurs around the age of 14 or 15.
As with any surgical procedure, it is important to have realistic expectations for the outcome.
Bringing in photos of your desired results will greatly help Los Angeles plastic surgeon Dr. Martin O’Toole during the planning phase. You will also receive a detailed digital photographic planning of your nose to ensure you have a thorough understanding of how your results will look.

Your Rhinoplasty Nose Surgery Procedure
Dr. O’Toole performs rhinoplasty in different ways depending on the needs of the individual patient. One aspect that can be changed is the number and location of the incisions, which may be made on the underside of the nose or within the nostrils. Working through these incisions, Dr. O’Toole manipulates the nose cartilage and bone until he has produced the desired shape. The incisions are then carefully closed.
Sometimes, your rhinoplasty must address the airway as well to correct issues with the septum. Dr. O’Toole will inform you if this is necessary during the planning phase.
Often, Dr. O’Toole may recommend chin implants in conjunction with a rhinoplasty for enhanced results.
Recovery after Rhinoplasty
Post-surgical swelling can be expected, and you may not see the final results of your rhinoplasty surgery until weeks or even months have passed. However, within one week, most of the swelling and bruising will subside enough for you to return to work and resume normal activities. When the finished result does appear, we are confident that you will be delighted with your symmetrical and streamlined profile.
