Dr. Younai will apply his medical expertise to determine if you are a viable candidate for rhinoplasty. He will inform you of any alternative approaches to address your concerns.
Dr. Younai will provide you with specific instructions during your rhinoplasty pre-operative appointment. You should expect to stop smoking and drinking alcohol for some time prior to and after your surgery date, as smoking can impede your body’s healing process. Also, you will be directed to stop taking certain medications that can thin your blood, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, blood-thinners, and herbal supplements, as these can encourage bleeding and bruising.
Dr. Younai will instruct you to appoint a trusted adult to drive you home after surgery and stay with you for at least the next 24 hours.
Any medications prescribed by Dr. Younai should be filled and picked up prior to surgery so you have them on hand when needed. If there are any instructions specific to your case, Dr. Younai will inform you of them. It is imperative that you follow all of the doctor’s instructions closely as he wants to ensure you have a safe and successful surgery.
On the day of your rhinoplasty, Dr. Younai will meet with you prior to surgery to review your tailored treatment plan. He will ensure you are comfortable with your decision to undergo surgery. From there, he will use a surgical marker on your face to highlight areas of focus, anatomical landmarks, and incision sites.
Once you are in the operating room, you will be provided the appropriate anesthesia (either general anesthesia or a local anesthesia with sedation) to make sure you remain comfortable throughout the procedure. Dr. Younai will follow his markings to precisely create subtle incisions based on your procedure plan. As the surgery site is open, he will make the necessary adjustments to your nose, taking into account your goals, aesthetics, and functionality.
In a closed rhinoplasty, Dr. Younai will make incisions inside of the nostrils where any resulting scars will be concealed within the natural contours of the nose. A closed rhinoplasty is ideal for making subtle changes to the nose.
In an open rhinoplasty, incisions are made on the underside of the nose in the skin that separates the nostrils. This approach is best when more substantial enhancements need to be made to the nose. The skin will be gently lifted back for increased visibility of and access to the nasal structure.
A septoplasty will straighten a deviated septum, allowing for better breathing. During a septoplasty, the bone and cartilage separating the nostrils may be trimmed, replaced, or repositioned in surgery. Septoplasty may be performed during your rhinoplasty, as needed.
After your rhinoplasty, your nose will be protected with bandages and splints. You can expect your nose to be swollen and sore for a few weeks after surgery. Also, the areas under your eyes may be bruised and swollen for about 2 weeks. You will need to sleep with your head elevated, avoid strenuous activity, and avoid blowing your nose for several weeks. Dr. Younai will provide any additional directives during your post-operative appointment.
During the year following your rhinoplasty, your nose may gradually settle into its new form as residual swelling subsides. Once changes in your nose become more stable, you may feel more comfortable and experience increased confidence in your appearance. Dr. Younai is a skilled surgeon and an aesthetic artist. He will work with your anatomy in order to make subtle changes to your nose that can make a dramatic impact that you will love! You can expect a straighter profile, more narrow bridge, smaller tip, clearer breathing, balanced appearance, among a number of other amazing results following rhinoplasty! Depending on your goals, Dr. Younai will create the look you have always wanted.

IS A NOSE JOB PERMANENT?
Over time, your nose naturally changes. After rhinoplasty, changes will continue to take place, especially in the first year as the nose heals from surgery. The natural aging process may affect the nose as well, however, the general size and shape of your contoured nose may remain stable. You can rest assured knowing that your rhinoplasty results will flatter your appearance for years to come!
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECOVER FROM A NOSE JOB?
Recovery time following a rhinoplasty will depend on the extent of your surgery, your body’s natural healing process, and how well you follow Dr. Younai’s aftercare instructions. Generally, it can take a year or more for your nose to settle into its more permanent form. Swelling may be intermittent during the first year after nose surgery as your body gets used to its new contours and your nose continues to heal. Dr. Younai will discuss a general timeline of what you can expect after rhinoplasty surgery.
