Your Chicago Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty (nose surgery) is among the most common and requested plastic surgery procedures in and beyond Chicago, thanks to its ability to greatly boost the patient’s self-confidence, upgrade their overall appearance, improve breathing, and create harmony among the facial features. A well-performed rhinoplasty can correct imperfections in the nasal tip, bridge, and nostrils, restoring symmetry and balance to the facial contours.

Even the most subtle nasal changes can significantly impact the aesthetics of the face, allowing the gaze to flow more naturally to the eyes and the smile. Dr. Few delivers elegant, nuanced results that beautifully enhance your organic beauty while perfectly balancing the profile with his surgical rhinoplasty in Chicago.

What is Rhinoplasty?

Located centrally among the features, the nose has a significant influence on the overall aesthetic of the face. A nose that is disproportionately large, bulbous, or flat can draw attention to itself, creating an imbalance in the appearance. Some flaws in the nasal tip, bridge, and nostrils will be noticeable in close quarters only, while other imperfections may be viewable from across the room.

Rhinoplasty seeks to amend the shape, size, and projection of the nose to better suit the individual, allowing their authentic beauty to shine through. Whether the nasal shape is a result of genetics, aging, an accident, or an injury, Dr. Few can transform your nose to satisfy your wishes and enhance your self-confidence.

How is the procedure performed?

The techniques used by Dr. Few are based on the individual’s unique anatomy and desired changes. In general, there are two options: open rhinoplasty and closed rhinoplasty. Open rhinoplasty involves a small incision made at the base of the nostrils across the columella. The scar is tiny and virtually invisible. This approach allows the surgeon to lift up the nasal skin, exposing the inner structures of the nose, and is thus well-suited for those patients that need more in-depth restructuring and reshaping. Closed rhinoplasty is performed through tiny incisions within the nostrils. Scarring is completely hidden from view.

This approach is effective in refining nasal concerns that are fairly minor in nature. Dr. Few performs rhinoplasty under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis. You will not feel any discomfort during your surgery. The doctor will reshape the bone and cartilage, sculpt the nasal tip, and adjust the nostrils. At this stage, he can also repair structural imbalances such as a deviated septum. After your surgery is complete, you will be placed in our state-of-the-art recovery center until you are ready to be discharged.

What are the different types of rhinoplasty available?

  • Ethnic rhinoplasty – Today’s rhinoplasty techniques take into account the patient’s unique heritage and background. Instead of foisting a strictly Westernized aesthetic onto the face, Dr. Few carefully customizes his work to allow for nuanced beauty.
  • Revision rhinoplasty – When primary nose surgery either goes too far or not far enough to effect the changes the patient desires, a revision procedure may be needed to balance the features and create a pleasing outcome. Dr. Few performs this complex and demanding surgery with ease, drawing on his many years of expertise in advanced techniques.
  • Liquid rhinoplasty – A liquid rhinoplasty is a non-surgical nose job using dermal fillers. Fillers can help combat minor imperfections in the tip and bridge, but results will only last around 6-12 months. In some cases, a liquid rhinoplasty can give a patient the confidence to proceed with their nose surgery by allowing them to “try on” their changes.

You’ll receive detailed instructions outlining the best sleeping positions, when to resume exercise, and when to return to work.

Following your rhinoplasty surgery in Chicago with Dr. Few, your nose will be bandaged and will have a splint in place for about one week after surgery. Swelling, bruising, and tenderness are normal side effects and can be well-controlled with prescription pain medications and rest.

Over the coming weeks and months, swelling will slowly decline, revealing your new, improved nasal appearance. Most clients can return to work within about 2 weeks.

Rhinopalsty FAQs

Can rhinoplasty be performed non-surgically?

What is a good age to undergo rhinoplasty?

Can rhinoplasty be performed non-surgically?

A liquid rhinoplasty procedure can be performed using various dermal fillers with temporary results. This can be a good way for patients to “try on” nose surgery before committing to longer-lasting changes. However, non-surgical rhinoplasty is limited in what it can accomplish. Only minor imperfections such as a small bump or nasal asymmetry can be addressed.

What is a good age to undergo rhinoplasty?

Nose surgery can be performed on teenagers as long as their noses have finished growing and developing. Girls are usually ready for surgery around 15 or 16, and boys can undergo rhinoplasty at around 18 years old. The upper age limit for surgery will depend on the patient’s overall health rather than a chronological number.
