Rhinoplasty and Nose Surgery Guide
By Nose Surgeon Dr. Michel Siegel
Often referred to as a “Nose Job” or “Nose Surgery”, Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that can improve both the aesthetic and functional aspects of a persons nose. Through Rhinoplasty surgery, patients can correct deformities of the nose, improving its breathing function, curing sinus disorders and enhancing the physical appearance of the patients face. Before undergoing cosmetic nose surgery, patients should consider the different techniques and variations of Rhinoplasty.

Depending on the patients reasoning for undergoing nose surgery, one particular surgical technique might be more beneficial than another. Click on the links below to learn more about the different Rhinoplasty techniques and variations performed by Dr. Siegel.
Benefits and Risk of Rhinoplasty Surgery
Rhinoplasty is essentially a form of surgical sculpting of the nose, requiring careful contouring of the bone and cartilage that gives the nose its shape and support. During this procedure, nose surgeons can permanently correct deformities, improving a patients breathing function and enhancing the appearance of a quintessential facial feature. After a successful surgery, it is common for patients to experience better respiratory health and a higher level of self-esteem.
Keep in mind that all cosmetic nose procedures come with a certain level of inherent risk. While rhinoplasty is one of the most common cosmetic surgical procedures performed, it remains one of the most difficult, if not THE most difficult operation to perform. The “After” result will depend on the surgeon you choose, his sense of aesthetics, the individual configuration of your nose, and the effects that healing will have on the nose after surgery.
The Rhinoplasty Procedure
Rhinoplasty is performed under sedation or general anesthesia. The surgery takes approximately 2 to 2 1/2 hours. With “seamless rhinoplasty,” most incisions are placed inside the nose where they are least visible. With Dr. Siegel, discomfort is minimized because he does not use tubes or painful packing after surgery. In most instances, change in appearance can be seen immediately.
Cost of Rhinoplasty
Patients can typically expect to pay between $5,000 – $12,000 for a rhinoplasty procedure. The cost will typically include the procedure, necessary anesthesia and hospital fees.
